One thought on “The Jailing of Cecelia Capture

  1. Aubrey

    3.5 5It s always odd reading a book set in so close a proximity to my own spatial life I m used to settings on the East Coast and beyond the borders than I am to in text references to UC Berkley and SF and the Bay Area, perhaps because I m used to letting my imagist muscles run rampant Names of places that I ve exhaustively traversed means I must reconcile rather than construct, which amps up self reflexivity at the cost of escapism Thus, the fact that I didn t enjoy this as much as other works [...]

  2. Jim Potter

    Janet Campbell Hale s novel, published in 1985, is a classic I felt pain every time Cecilia s mean mother berated her I hurt when the father she loved chose alcohol as a mechanism to cope And, I believed in hope as Cecilia worked to improve her life But, I was scared whenever self doubt creeped back into her consciousness This book is a masterful work of art I d love to have an update on Cecilia from the Author Hale Jim Potter, author of Taking Back the Bullet Trajectories of Self Discovery

  3. Toni

    One thing I like to say is that its a book from my stash One down 100s to go I started it because it was in the guest room I needed something to read while waiting for my grandson to go to sleep It was very grim I almost gave it up a few times Still I found it interesting to read about a Native American woman and her life Alienation poverty alcohol etc.

  4. Mitch Milam

    I really liked the female Native American perspective here, and I was really into the first third of this book Unfortunately, the prose just became too impersonal in a story that needs you to understand and relate with its central character It was kind of a letdown for a story that started off so promising.

  5. Sammi

    This is a tricky one I m not quite sure how to rate this I had to read it for the summer class I m taking online It was a fast read for sure and much better than most of the other works that I ve been assigned in my previous semesters other English majors know the struggle It was definitely interesting and never boring It s basically a very intimate look into the dysfunctional, terribly flawed life of Cecelia Capture I guess the reason for my confusion as to what to rate the book is that I don t [...]

  6. Monica

    Truly amazing meta fiction done by indigenous author Janet Campbell Hale The novel focuses on Cecelia Capture and her struggle to assimilate into dominate, white culture throughout her childhood and into her adult life.Arrested on her 30th birthday for drunk driving in San Francisco, while in her jail cell, she looks back on her childhood and teenage memories in a drunken haze, quickly sobering up to realize she is being held longer for welfare fraud.Hale beautifully examines the intersections b [...]

  7. Jessicat

    I read this novel years ago and liked it I liked it the second time as well, but I realizd I d missed so much of the point of this novel the first time around This is a depressing story and I hate to admit that I have anything in common with the narrator, but I understood her desperation This is a chick novel an ADULT Woman novel.

  8. Tex Tourais

    Takes on beauty and aging and assimilation but in a heavy handed fashion I also didn t find the quality in the prose that other readers have The narrative voice just wasn t compelling, so I shut things down 100 out of 200 pages in In my mind, The Bluest Eye is same themes, better book.

  9. Ryan Mishap

    1980 s novel about an Indian native womin in law school whose arrest for drunken driving in San Francisco inspires memories of her upbringing, family, and life Abrupt ending, but a sorrowful, wonderful book.

  10. April

    This book takes a stark, personal look at the flaws in our welfare system I really cared about the characters.
