The Time of Our Singing

| | ,

Fiction can be made effective if it is connected to something concrete that’s why here for this novel Richard Powers has connected his story with history. Proper dates are mentioned and the author has done some research for it to make us believe that the story did happen in the past.

People from two different races and religion meet on American ground and though there profession was even not the same they had one thing in common i.e love for music. It was the love for music that made them interested in each other as well and the married with a promise that they will raise their children with the same love.

Unfortunately the society does not go well with their thoughts and views about life. Their three children do not get what the planned for them at their birth. America steps into an era when racism was on the rise and the life of three children does not remain cool and calm because of the multicultural background.

Jonah becomes a singer according to the expectations of his parents but the youngest in the family adopts the vulgar form of life as he joins the group of people who work against the government.

The third one appears to be the average middle class person who remains frustrated because of two family members whom he cannot meet now. The Overstory and Galatea 2.2 the other two masterpieces by Richard Powers are must read if someone likes this novel. The narration is flawless and smooth as expected by Peter Jay Fernandez who is skilled in narrating historical works. The pauses are also tackled with extreme care and accuracy.
