Description: Safekeeping is a triumph of both form and emotion. In beautifully realized, short prose pieces, Thomas -- mother, wife, and grandmother -- describes with amazing stylistic economy how she learned from each of those roles, giving us a 360-degree portrait of a woman at different stages of life. Marriage and motherhood at nineteen; a second husband, once a troubled lover, now, after the collapse of their marriage, a dear friend she helps face his terminal illness. She writes of life's pleasures and struggles with humor and precision, without undue sentiment, in this elegant, wise book about longing and survival.
