The Strange Woman by Ben Ames WilliamsRating: 4* of five
This is one hella long book. Over 600 pages of densely packed story about Bangor, Maine, and its two different lives as a seaport and a lumber boomtown. Its a great story, and its told through the lens of the fearsome and awful life of Jenny Hager Poster Evered. What a horrible life she led. What a horrifying person it turned her into. What a terrifying tale of an evil souls manipulative rule over the innocents who had every right to expect she would be their loving helpmeet.
This story resonated with me as the son of just such a woman. It was of greater historical interest than I expected, as I didnt have any idea about the course of the economic development of Maine. It was very detailed and very multi-layered, which I confess surprised me from a book published in 1941. I wasnt prepared for the psychological astuteness of Williamss tale. It was a shock to me that the cruelties I saw my father suffer werent unique, and the experience of the same levels of psychological torture myself was clearly shown in Jennys relationships with her own brood. Theres a weird sort of comfort in that, seeing the worst of ones own life brought to light in fiction where its possible to cope with it by closing the covers of the book.
Im not sure Id recommend it as a pleasure read, but its a darn good tale told well and written by a writer who has vanished from the literary scene without a trace. That makes me sad. Ben Ames Williams doesnt deserve the final death of anonymity.
For film noir fans, there is a public-domain film of the same title but different basic intent...redeeming Jenny, as played by the luminously lovely Hedy Lamarr, was a total violation of Williamss story...thats a decent way to spend a couple hours here.

There's a game called Life Is Strange. Instead, I'll tell you things that only I can tell you. I am a massive fan of Life Is Strange. I put the mass in Massachusetts when it comes to LIS. I recently finished playing the newest episode and I'm just so much in love with the story. FYI: I do not claim this as my own work.
