Praise for Rachel Hadas and Strange Relation "Rachel Hadas's own wonderfully resonant poems, along with the rich collection of verse and prose by other writers that she weaves into her story, clarify and illuminate over and over again this thoughtful and lucid tale of love, companionship, and heartbreaking illness―illness that, as she shows us so well, is at once frighteningly alien and also /5(14).

Three novels in one. The only one worth bothering with is the last one, 'Strange Relations' itself. I picked it up because this is the book Dan O'Bannon read as he was writing the screenplay for Alien. Strange relation book the three pages from the end to see where the Alien's mouth-within-a-mouth idea comes from /5.

The third "book" is called "Strange Relations" and is a collection of short stories. The first two are connected. In "Mother", an Earthman participates in an alien's reproductive process, and in "Daughter" one of the progeny heeds well the advice of her "dad".

The next segment "Father" is a bit of a tease since you might imagine that it is a /5(15). Strange Relations book. Read 41 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. A summer in paradise. That's all Marne wants.

That's all she can /5. Strange Relation A Memoir of Marriage, Dementia, and Poetry (Book): Hadas, Rachel: [A] thoughtful and lucid tale of love, companionship, and heartbreaking illness.

--Lydia Davis In Rachel Hadas's husband, George Edwards, a composer and professor of music at Columbia University, was diagnosed with early-onset dementia at the age of sixty-one. Strange Relation snaps with bravery, intelligence, and Hadas' tart, candid wisdom."—Molly Peacock "Strange Relation is a beautifully written and piercingly honest account of life with a brilliant man as he descends into dementia, in his sixties."—Reeve LindberghAuthor: Rachel Hadas.

The book is a reconstructed narrative of the years during the duration of her husband’s illness. For, as Hadas herself emphasizes, Strange Relation is an intertwined double helix of illness narratives - hers and her husband's.

As his preferred medium of communication - musical notes - fails, hers - written words - takes over to tell their story. Strange Relation is a memoir for those of you who love literature and poetry and know it can sustain you through personal trials.

This is the book you would write if you carefully recording unexpected insights and deeper meanings in what you were reading while experiencing a major life crisis/5(3). Strange relation.

New York: Penguin Books, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Daniel Hall; Bemis/Flaherty Collection of Gay Poetry.

In Strange Relation, Rachel Hadas, poet, teacher and classicist, recounts the years just short of a decade of her husband’s descent – retreat is the word she’d prefer – into gh no definitive diagnosis emerges for George’s “spooky condition,” frontotemporal dementia possibly with Alzheimer’s disease in the frontal lobe seems the most likely.
