Harbour View

Harbour View Read upon a recommendation. It was a quick easy read and I really enjoyed it. The separate stories of residents of a nursing home are intertwined with a few characters (mainly employees). It was one of those books that left me with a full range of emotionssorrow or happiness at times for the residents, and thankfulness for the caring of staff. It was also very interested the way Nova Scotian history was brought up through the stories of people's lives. This book showed love, patience, companionship, humility and the left thinking about my life ahead.

Ms. Brennan's followup volume of short stories, A Certain Grace (2012 Quattro Books) and most recently, a novel, Like any Other Monday (2014, Gaspereau Press) are equally as impressive, firmly establishing Ms. Brennan as a writer to be taken note of. Harbour View is her first novella and was the cowinner of the 2009 Ken Klonsky Novella Prize.

This novella left me wishing to know more about the charactersfour residents and two staff workers at a longcare home in Halifax. I especially loved the Halifax setting and the glimpses of familiar landmarks. A very quick read that is quickly engaging. Harbour View is a lovely collection of short stories by a fine writer of the genre. Binnie Brennan is a fine writer and always a joy to read. As publisher of ExistereJournal of Arts and Literature, I am proud to have been the first to publish one of her short stories. What a wonderfully beautiful collection of short stories. Harbour View, Binnie Brennan's prizewinning novella, closely resembles—in structure if not intent—a collection of linked short stories. The novella’s six untitled chapters are set either completely or in large part in a nursing home overlooking Halifax Harbour. Each of the chapters is narrated from the point of view of a different character: a resident or staff member of the facility. As we might expect from a work of fiction that concerns itself with elderly men and women and those who care for them, memory looms large in these pages. Buddy, who is celebrating his 109th birthday, is consumed by memories of his children, all of whom are dead, and by a unique musical heritage that is embodied in a fiddle constructed by his great grandfather and passed down from one generation to the next. Dahlia, tormented by aches and pains, dreads her bath, finds the chatter of the caregivers irritating and misses her partner Ronnie. Violet is writing down the story of her time as an artists' model for her niece, and Myrna keeps herself busy reading her mother's diary and tries to hide her chagrin when her son and his wife announce they are selling the family home. None of these people are especially unhappy or burdened with regret, but neither are they in a mood to celebrate the days they have left. They are simply aware that their best years are behind them and have grown accustomed to the indignities of old age and living in the shadow of death. Brennan is an observant, pragmatic and sympathetic writer who treats her characters with respect even as she zeroes in on their weaknesses and vulnerabilities—this is true as well of the two chapters that focus on staff of the nursing home. Throughout the book the writing is plain but effective and conveys deep emotion with great subtlety. In her debut work of fiction Binnie Brennan finds drama in small things and grants a voice to a group that doesn’t often get to speak for itself. Her triumph is that she does so with compassion while avoiding sentimentality. This book is a heartbreaking look into the lives of a number of residents at a Halifax nursing home, along with a couple of the staff. Each chapter of the novella is written from a different point of view. At only 105 pages it would be a quick read anyway but I couldn't put it down!

There's lots of Halifax mentions, from traffic on North Street onto the bridge, to the ferries passing each other in the harbour, to a family home on Portland Street (I can picture the big old houses while I read since I drive by there pretty frequently!)

For anyone who has a relative in a nursing home this book might even hit a little too close to home at timesone chapter in particular had tears streaming down my face as it was so close to my own experiences. I think most people will be able to relate on a personal level but even if you haven't had that experience I think most readers will still be able to connect with the characters because they are so well writtensimple, but effective.

Definitely recommend!
