    I very much enjoyed Elisabeth Russell Taylor's short story collection Belated when I received a review copy upon its publication and have been trying to seek out her work ever since It has unfortunately proved difficult to find any of her titles but thankfully Daunt Books have recently reissued her 1991 novella TomorrowShena Mackay writes that Tomorrow is 'a memorable and poignant novel made all the heartbreaking by the uiet dignity of its central character and the restraint of its telling' Elaine Feinstein points out that Russell Taylor 'writes brilliantly of emptiness and the need for love' and Publishers Weekly highlights rather fantastically that 'Russell Taylor mingles the elegant with the grotesue as if seating Flaubert next to William S Burroughs at dinner' Tomorrow takes place in 1960 on the Danish island of Mon where 'a number of ill assorted guests have gathered' to spend their summer holidays The protagonist is Elisabeth Danzinger 'plain middle aged a woman so utterly predictable in her habits that she has come to the island every summer for the last fifteen years' Elisabeth grew up holidaying on Mon where her parents owned a holiday home The pilgrimage which she makes for seven days each summer gives her the opportunity to remember her tumultuous past Her itinerary never changes and she expects that every holiday will be exactly the same as the one before; she revels in and takes comfort from this certaintyAt the outset of the novella which runs to just 136 pages the current employer of Elisabeth in England writes in a letter 'Despite living under the same roof as Miss Danzinger for fifteen years I can tell you little about her You must have noticed for yourself she was hardly prepossessing As for her character I would describe it as secretive verging on the smug I do not know anything about her background she never mentioned it but I did observe she spent her afternoons off differently from my English servants She was a great aficionado of the museums and once a month I believe she attended a theatre' This is the first description which we as readers receive of Elisabeth who proves to be rather a complex character Russell Taylor continues with this level of depth and attention to detail throughout When Elisabeth arrives at the hotel Russell Taylor describes the way in which 'She could hear the sea breathing through the twittering of the sparrows that nested in the wisteria She consulted her watch; she rose put a cotton kimono over her petticoat threw a salt white bath towel over her arm picked up her sponge bag opened the bedroom door uietly looked right and left along the corridor and satisfied that no one was about crossed uickly to the bathroom' Mon has been made a presence in itself with Russell Taylor's vivid descriptions and sketches of island life building to make it feel as though one is there alongside Elisabeth at all times A wonderful focus has been given to sight and colour; for instance when 'Far our at sea when ultramarine turned to Prussian three fishing boats floated motionless' and later 'Over a barely discernible grey sheet of water was thrown an eually grey shroud of sky but the shroud was torn in places to reveal streaks of blood red and auamarine blue'The loneliness which Elaine Feinstein picks out in her review has been given such attention and is written about with emotion and understanding 'She was filled with an overwhelming sense of loss as she wandered from tree to tree recognising many feeling herself refused she had overstayed her welcome in the world Life conducted itself independently of her The scents from the sodden earth filled her with an intolerable weight of memory; not that of individual occasions but of the entire past' Tomorrow is a beautifully written novella filled with depth Mon comes to life beneath Russell Taylor's pen as do the characters she constructs From time to time the secondary characters do not feel entirely realistic or plausible but the very depth of Elisabeth's character than makes up for this Tomorrow is so well informed and feels timeless; the issues which it tackles in part grief solitude and the legacy of the Holocaust are written about with such gravity and compassion that one cannot help but be moved as the work reaches its conclusion

    A little lukewarm but adds up to something rather moving by the end of it Echoes of Anita Brookner? I thought so too And Alison Moore who wrote the introduction in the Daunt books edition I got I'm often a bit wary of the use of the Holocaust as a backdrop for fiction it lends everything an easy instant borrowed power but this was fairly deft Some moments of magical barminess eg the elderly storyteller but all told a decent thoughtful brisk read


  3. says:

    A wonderfully told tale of love and loss with a fascinating amount of history thrown in Haunting


  4. says:

    This was a beautiful book the writing is graceful and detailed but is never showy or a chore to get through The sense of place is wonderful and the story itself is so sad that it is painful I really recommend this


  5. says:

    An alternatively jarring and melancholy tale mixed with the sweetness of the location an island off the Baltic coast in Denmark A German woman living in London visits the island of her childhood annually reliving a past besmirched by the Nazis

    More like a 35

    Written so beautifully as to almost be poetry But so sad it leaves you almost unable to breathe


  8. says:

    Layered and poignant

    Having seen how little this book is known republished in 2018 for the first time since its original publication in 1991 I was intrigued to see why it had been neglected for so long when the premise sounded so good Sadly I think I can see why Whilst Tomorrow has some beautiful evocations of setting nothing much happens We follow the life of Elisabeth Dezinger a woman whose past tragedies see her recur each year to the Danish island of Mon where her devastation unfolded Subseuently this short novella dedicates itself to recollecting these memories amongst the day to day lives that continue to transpire around the island The trouble is however that Elisabeth has no intention of changing the monotony that continues to consume her Rather she is content simply to flounder in her depression As a result the story becomes uite downcast and whilst Elisabeth's tragedy is one that attracts sympathy it is persistently clear that nothing will come of the novella other than a meditation on memory Also at times Taylor explores the lives of other guests staying at the hotel but again it is clear they have nothing to add to the story other than embellishment of the setting In this sense I think Taylor would have been better off sticking with Elisabeth's past and containing it to a short story Not the lost gem I was hoping for
