One Season Behind
Author: Sarah Rosenblatt
Publisher: Carnegie Mellon University Press (2007)
Sarah Rosenblatt’s One Season Behind is an insightful look at the way life sneaks up on us, and time moves so gently, that we awaken one morning, and find the leaves have turned. She savors the innocence of our children’s questions, reflects on our feelings as we watch their lives unfold, and ponders the contrast between our parents and ourselves. She tenderly observes, the everyday details, like the play of sunlight on a sleeping cat’s back, and asks the questions we all ask as we move through our days, trying to catch up with time’s changes, and yearning for things to stay as they are. An engaging read that will leave the reader reflecting on the movement of their own lives, and rereading the pieces that touch them the most.
