The modernist female voice - GOOD MORNING MIDNIGHT, 10 July 2002
Written at the height of the modernist movement, Rhy's 'Goodmorning Midnight' adopts the 'stream of consciousness' technique seen also in the work of Woolf and Lawrence. This style, which so successfully highlights the personal torments and lonliness of Sasha, Rhy's main protagonist also illustrates the rhythms and atmosphere of modern Paris. The book focuses on the thought process of Sasha, as she comes to terms with her life and faces up to her fears. Rhy's words tenderly and tentively illustrate the frustration, depression and isolation of a single foreign woman in a capital city. The deep concentration on the character of Sasha enables the reader to enter her mind and thus experience both her pain and her moments of joy. A rewarding and revitalising read.
