Review: Little Fires Everywhere
Post a Comment. Thursday, May 17, Little Fires Everywhere. Little Fires Everywhere beautifully layers backstories with enough detail and dialogue to connect the reader to each character and his or her turmoil. Ng carefully pulls back the curtains on a few homes, letting the reader see the choices made, the words said and unsaid, the angst and the love all hidden in homes with their neatly manicured lawns. As truths are exposed to the reader, they remain hidden between characters. Consequently my heart ached by the time I read the final page.
Mia Warren has, since childhood, been a devoted and talented photographer. Her skills brought her to New York City, where she worked closely with Pauline Hawthorne , a famous photographer who recognized in Mia the potential for great talent and true art. Mia manually edits the photographs she takes, often cutting out sections, pasting on pieces of paper or other small objects which accentuate the subject or cast them in a different light. Mia takes odd jobs everywhere she goes, but the sale of a photograph, and the often large sum of money she receives for that sale, represents accomplishment and the hope for success and stability for both Mia and Pearl. She offers them the photographs as both a benediction and an indictment as her final act before leaving Shaker Heights forever. Richardson] turned her attention to the largest print, which had been stuck up alone over the mantelpiece. It was a photograph of a woman, back to the camera, in mid-dance.
