    1 thought on “Triangular Road: A Memoir”

    1. Expertly written and absorbing in every way. I enjoyed the writing and the story, a memoir of a young writer's life and her affiliation with Langston Hughes, who helped her career along. Paule Marshall was an attractive, thoughtful-looking child and became a beautiful young woman with her sights set squarely on a writing career. She has collected a number of awards for her writing over her career. Her family emigrated from Barbados, and I learned from and savored the parts where Marshall spent t [...]

    2. While there were some very strong parts that interested me a great deal, this sparse memoir gave me all too few details about the subject. I didn't really have the opportunity to connect with her.

    3. All reviewers were highly interested in a memoir by Marshall, an author critically praised but not well known. While praising the book as a whole, they disagreed on the overall effectiveness of Marshall's technique. Some reviewers felt that structuring the book as a series of essays emphasized Marshall's focused prose and unique voice. Others argued that readers would have been better served by a more developed, chronological autobiography. But the message of most reviewers was that readers shou [...]

    4. Pretty familiar terrain for those who've read Marshall, but the clean, spare prose and genuine warmth are certainly to be appreciated. Something along the lines of a visit with a favorite aunt. Like Langston Hughes though, as she relates, I'm afraid that I too cannot come around to the silent "e" of her name and continue to refer to her as "Paul-e". Twenty plus years of habit are hard to change. And is it really Na-BAH-kov?

    5. Some of what Paule Marshall describes in her memoir, Triangular Road, was described in greater detail in her first book, Brown Girl Brownstone and both are good books. I especially enjoy Paule writing about her friendship with Langston Hughes, her mentor and promoter at the start of her writing career. Her descriptions of African American unrest in also very interesting.

    6. I enjoyed this memoir, especially the chapter on Richmond,VA. Marshall weaves in U.S. history as she tells her own story. I've ordered Brownstones, Brown Girl for the library, and am anxious to read it.

    7. Interesting ways to put together a memoir or a segment of a life that does look at USA, the Caribbean as well as Africa. We can see some of the sources of her novels, but the process of writing and particularly creating the space to write is very nice.

    8. Very engaging. I read this while in Aruba. First time reading works by Ms. Marshall and I intend to read more.

    9. Quite good and a lovely tribute to all the multitudes of slaves lost throughout history somewhere between the Caribbean and Africa.

    10. For the fans of Paule Marshall, her observations of Brooklyn, the Caribbean immigrant experience, Langston Hughes, and much more are on target. And from Paule, beautifully written.

    11. Essays/memoir on her experiences as an American-Barbadian writer. The first focuses on her experiences with Langston Hughes. Reading these fluid pieces makes me want to go back to her novels.

    12. A great, spare memoir - but i have a feeling it's only useful for folks who have already read her novels, essays, and short stories.

    13. I randomly picked this up off a sale table at The Strand bookstore in New York City. It was a surprisingly good find.
