Gallery Review

Sisters

Comin' Down the Mountain at the Donkey Gallery

Given the current rate of urban sprawl, it's reasonable to assume that 50 years from now Albuquerque and Santa Fe will merge into a single urban unit. We might as well get a jump on our inevitable union by letting bygones be bygones. There's no need to keep fighting. We're sisters, after all. Sure, Santa Fe is a prissy cosmopolitan educated at Yale who married the ambassador to Japan, while we here in Albuquerque are a cheap bimbo with a weakness for Kahlua who dropped out of school in the 11th grade to pursue a dubious career as an exotic dancer—but that doesn't mean we don't have a lot of common interests.

Like so many of the stories and novels that came before it, John Updike's 21st novel is a bildungsroman, the German term for a story about a man's growth and development. Most novels in this genre, such as Charles Dickens' Great Expectations or James Joyce's Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, involve movement through the world. They involve education, and the hero emerges triumphant, imbued with new facts and lessons, a new certainty about his place in the world.

The 15 interconnected tales in Reflections of Life in Our Town comprise author James' youthful reminiscences about growing up in small town America, despite the fact that the exact location of Our Town is uncertain. The majority of residents believe it to be in northeastern Ohio, but some feel that Our Town is actually on an island in the Caribbean, and one independent soul contends that it rests in the steppes of the Ural Mountains. One thing on which all agree is that it is located on the third among the 12 planets in the solar system, most of which accommodate Wal-Mart superstores.
