FISH FOR SUPPER

KIRKUS REVIEW

When my grandmother went fishing she would get up at five o'clock in the morning. . ." to spend the day catching, cleaning, and eating fish. "Then fast, fast, she cleaned up the dishes and went to bed, so she could get up at five o'clock in the morning to go fishing." A spare life, well suited to Goffstein's spare line drawings which never sentimentalize the dumpy grandmother's lonely pleasures. (Veraciously, her expression doesn't even signify that she's enjoying her meal--though the tea and hot fresh rolls make a contrary impression.) Utterly simple, unmistakably individual, implicitly touching--in short, a Goffstein.
