Still Life by Sarah Winman: Novel Ideas

Sometimes it is the films you saw or the books you read years ago that lie dormant and yet await the moment when they can influence the next creative project.

My new novel Still Life is set mainly in Florence. It starts in 1944, spans four decades, has multiple characters, and required more research than my previous three novels. It’s also the book that I enjoyed writing the most.

Listed below are the books, plays, and films that influenced this story.

childhood

Boyhood is a 2014 film directed by Richard Linklater. A coming-of-age story about the childhood and adolescence of a boy named Mason. It’s a remarkable movie not just because of the acting, but because it was actually made over twelve years. It’s a film about family life – or more precisely mixed family life – about meals, excursions, birthdays, something like that: a life that is characterized by everyday familiarity. And I remember very well that I thought I would like to write a novel like this; or could I write such a novel? One that gently unfolds and shows life’s milestones?

Girls from the north country

Girl from the North Country is a play written and directed by Conor McPherson, music and lyrics by Bob Dylan. It is located in a guest house in Duluth, Minnesota during the Great Depression of the 1930s. What should I say about this piece? It just got under my skin and when it closed I felt deprived. I was very interested in the characters. I’ve seen it four or five times with the original cast, led by Sheila Atim, Ciaran Hinds & Shirley Henderson. I wanted to write a book that would make people feel the same as I did about this piece. In the end I used the trope of the pension in Still life. I also set out to imitate the theatricality of the piece and the great ensemble playing.

Wanting people to feel the way I felt about something is a perfect transition to Cloudstreet, Tim Winton’s 1991 novel about two working-class families who moved into a large Perth house in the 1940s. Spanning twenty years, it’s a great novel about relationships and community and the need to belong and feel connected. Colloquial dialogues and a lot of it. It’s a lush and beautiful story and, once again, character driven. I remember feeling bewitched by it all those years ago. Feelings of great joy and sadness. I thought it was quite an accomplishment.

Looking at the Overlooked: Four Essays on Still Life Painting by Norman Bryson

I love still life painting and these essays got me to look at the shape in a way that I didn’t have before. Especially the last essay which uses the idea of ​​still life as feminine space and the oppression of women; the way the genre has been downgraded from the male gaze. I used this idea in my book when Evelyn Skinner, my aging art historian, was trying to write an introduction to still life painting for her students. This is where the title came from, along with the word “still”, which is used both as an adjective and an adverb.

The idea of ​​feminine space runs through my book. Feminine instead of feminine as I made it gender neutral. Because it’s the men who live in the kitchen. The men who raise a girl. Motherhood instead of motherhood.

A room with a view by EM Forster

It would be hard to write a novel about Florence and not feel the dust of Forster’s novel settle on the page. It was the movie I first came to in 1985 and it was talked about a lot at the time because my acting agent Julian Belfrage had four clients, if I remember correctly. The book is an entirely different animal; much darker. Forster’s emphasis on class and the topics of the sacred versus the profane, the educated versus nothing and who has the right to express oneself on art. I was always fascinated by the Cockney landlady who runs the fictional Pensione Bertolini, but also the real Pensione Simi, where Forster stayed with his mother at the beginning of his one-year trip through Italy. Forster hadn’t left university long and wasn’t sure what he wanted to do. He was gay and hidden. And this sensitivity runs through all of his books. I wanted my character Evelyn to meet him and spend time with him. And as a counterpoint to his hidden sexuality, I wanted Evelyn to celebrate hers.

Arnold Bennett’s 1910 Florentine Diary

This book was invaluable in the 1901 period of my history. It’s full of details of everyday Florentine life that Bennett learned about during his stay – trams, cafes, drinks, food, horses, hairdressers, laundry trolleys waiting in front of hotels and sketches he made. I read most of this book in the library of the British Institute of Florence overlooking the Arno. It was January and the radiators were warming up. It was not difficult to imagine 1910 when I sat there and my eyes wandered from the side to such an unchanged river landscape.

Florentine art under attack by Frederick Hartt

A wonderful and impressive first-hand account of Hartt’s efforts to find works of art from the Uffizi Gallery and Pitti Palace that had been hidden in the Tuscan hills for security reasons prior to WWII. Hartt was an art historian who became a lieutenant in the US Fifth Army, part of the Monuments Men. He drove around in a jeep called the Lucky 13 while German artillery exploded all around. This book influenced the opening section of Still Life – both the lunch Evelyn Skinner and Margaret someone had at the humble Albergo and the discovery of Pontormo’s stunning altarpiece.

Reported problems with landing gear, brakes, reversers, and shock absorbers

A report by Simon Hradecky in the Aviation Herald on Sunday said the Airbus had just taken off from Minneapolis (MSP) and was on its way to Baltimore (BWI). The Airbus A320-200 (registered as N342NW) operated DL1205. According to the report, there were 142 passengers and crew on the flight.

Shortly after take-off, the pilots leveled off at 4,000 feet and reported a mechanical failure. After troubleshooting, the pilots declared an emergency. They reported that they had a shock absorber failure on the landing gear, the landing gear did not retract, several of their brakes did not work, the reversers did not work, and normal braking did not work.

“Okay, we’ll probably have some pretty hot brakes when we stop,” Minneapolis pilots can say as they make their final approach.

A quick landing after an hour in the air

According to flight tracking websites, the plane had made a return flight from Minneapolis to Portland that same day without incident. DL1205 is the 7:58 pm departure from Minneapolis St Paul International Airport for Baltimore Washington International.

The plane took off heading southeast before making a 180 degree turn and tracking northwest of Minneapolis. DL1205 then circled west of the airport and completed several large loops before lining up for an approach back to Minneapolis. The aircraft maintained a low altitude throughout the orbit, staying near 6,000 feet, and reaching a top speed of 325 miles (524 kilometers) per hour. N342NW was moving at approximately 210 mph as it passed the threshold of runway 12R of Minneapolis.

According to The Aviation Herald, the pilots told Minneapolis that they needed the longest runway available once they discovered problems with their brakes.

The aircraft has a long but trouble-free history with Delta Air Lines

Film material available online shows the Airbus making a quick landing on runway 12R. Lights from waiting rescue vehicles are visible. When the plane came to a safe stop, fire engines raced towards the plane. N342NW stopped at the end of the runway until a tug came to be towed. There were no reports of injuries to passengers or crew members on board. The plane spent less than an hour in the air.

The aviation database ch-aviation shows that N342NW is 28.64 years old. As of December 31, 2020, the aircraft had flown 81,103 hours in 36,075 flight cycles. Before flying for Delta Air Lines, the narrowbody Airbus flew for Northwest Airlines between 1993 and 2008. In 2008, Delta merged with Northwest Airlines, with many of the aircraft being renamed from Northwest.

Despite the aircraft’s age, the first recorded incident of the N342NW reflects the rigorous maintenance and inspection programs at Delta and previously in the Northwest.

Passengers on the affected flight took another plane to BWI the next morning. They arrived safely in Baltimore, but 13 hours behind schedule.

The N342NW aircraft involved on May 27 remained in Minneapolis for almost 24 hours after making a quick landing. The following evening, May 28, DL1205 operated without incident for Baltimore Washington International. Since then, the aircraft has resumed its normal flight schedule.

Before flying for Delta Air Lines, the narrowbody Airbus flew for Northwest Airlines between 1993 and 2008. In 2008, Delta merged with Northwest Airlines, with many of the aircraft being renamed from Northwest.

Despite the aircraft’s age, the first recorded incident of the N342NW reflects the rigorous maintenance and inspection programs at Delta and previously in the Northwest.

Passengers on the affected flight took another plane to BWI the next morning. They arrived safely in Baltimore, but 13 hours behind schedule.

The N342NW aircraft involved on May 27 remained in Minneapolis for almost 24 hours after making a quick landing. The following evening, May 28, DL1205 operated without incident for Baltimore Washington International. Since then, the aircraft has resumed its normal flight schedule.

Express Winless Streak increased to 3 on loss to St. Cloud |  Sports

A weekend to forget ended for the Eau Claire Express on Sunday with a 9-0 defeat against St. Cloud Rox. The hosts made the greatest damage in the fifth inning with five hits to extend the lead to 7-0.

Eau Claire was surpassed by three games 17: 5 during his current losing streak and fell 10: 3 against Waterloo on Friday and 8: 2 in the series opener against St. Cloud on Saturday.

The Express had four hits on Sunday, half of which came straight away from Nick Marinconz. Greg Lewandoski and Zach Lechnir each had a punch. The team used five pitchers, with starter Hunter Rosenbaum taking the loss. He allowed two runs, both earned, and five hits, while striking three in four innings of work.

Dillon Whittaker was credited with five deserved runs in just a third of an inning that was served in the difficult fifth place. He scored a pair before being drawn in a situation full of bases in favor of Patrick Collins. All three of these runners made it home to add to Whittaker’s total. The frame lasted 11 strokes before a putout finally ended it.

Kaleb Carpenter and KC Swords ended the night with a run each. St. Cloud finished with 14 hits.

The express fell to 4-10.

Eau Claire finishes a four-game road sweep with a two-game series against the Bismarck Larks. The first pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.

Falcons Gernandt qualifies for State Track Meet

The MSHSL Section 1AA Track Finals took place at Lakeville South High School on Saturday. Faribault Falcons senior Ruby Gernandt came second in the 1600 meter run with a time of 5: 17.48. Farmington senior Anna Fenske won the competition with a time of 5: 07.22.

Gernandt was the only Faribault athlete who had quality for the state meeting, but the Falcons are young and have had some great performances.

Junior Devin Lockerby finished third in the shot put with his best throw of the season 49 ’11’. Senior Alex Leet finished 7th with a litter of 46 ‘9.75 “to collect some team points for the Falcons.

Leet and Lockerby both had discus throws over 135 ‘, which would have put them in the top 5, but Leet topped with 116’ 8 ‘and Lockerby 113’ 11 “. They weren’t the only throwers in trouble. Junior Samuel Reiland of Rosemount had a best litter of 150 ‘4 “and 131’ 1”.

Gernandt also finished fourth in the 800 meter run with a personal best of 2: 23.11.

The Faribault Falcon girls and boys teams finished 11th out of 16 teams in the section. Rosemount was the champion with both 177 points for the girls and 150 points for the boys.

Senior Tanner Longshore finished 6th in the pole vault with 11’6 “, one foot above his previous best.

Falcon’s Senior Taylor Day finished 7th in the 100-meter run. His trainer Alex Gustafson told us a few weeks ago at the Bashers that Day was out on track for the first time this year and it was amazing what he has achieved without much formal training.

Falcons Gernandt qualifies for State Track Meet

The MSHSL Section 1AA Track Finals took place at Lakeville South High School on Saturday. Faribault Falcons senior Ruby Gernandt came second in the 1600 meter run with a time of 5: 17.48. Farmington senior Anna Fenske won the competition with a time of 5: 07.22.

Gernandt was the only Faribault athlete who had quality for the state meeting, but the Falcons are young and have had some great performances.

Junior Devin Lockerby finished third in the shot put with his best throw of the season 49 ’11’. Senior Alex Leet finished 7th with a litter of 46 ‘9.75 “to collect some team points for the Falcons.

Leet and Lockerby both had discus throws over 135 ‘, which would have put them in the top 5, but Leet topped with 116’ 8 ‘and Lockerby 113’ 11 “. They weren’t the only throwers in trouble. Junior Samuel Reiland of Rosemount had a best litter of 150 ‘4 “and 131’ 1”.

Gernandt also finished fourth in the 800 meter run with a personal best of 2: 23.11.

The Faribault Falcon girls and boys teams finished 11th out of 16 teams in the section. Rosemount was the champion with both 177 points for the girls and 150 points for the boys.

Senior Tanner Longshore finished 6th in the pole vault with 11’6 “, one foot above his previous best.

Falcon’s Senior Taylor Day finished 7th in the 100-meter run. His trainer Alex Gustafson told us a few weeks ago at the Bashers that Day was out on track for the first time this year and it was amazing what he has achieved without much formal training.

WATCH NOW: Footjoy's owner uses his own grain for its beers, breads, buns and pizza crusts | Business



Chad Forsberg opened Footjoy Farm Brewing in Melvina on April 1st. Forsberg uses very small amounts of grain from his farm.


Peter Thomson, La Crosse Tribune

STEVE CAHALAN For the La Crosse Tribune

MELVINA – Chad Forsberg likes the idea of ​​farm-to-table restaurants that source their ingredients from nearby producers.

He took that idea a step further and grows the grain he uses to make his beers and that goes into his breads, rolls and pizza crusts at the Footjoy Farm & Brewing Restaurant and Brewery, which he opened in April 1st Melvina, a small community that has opened on Highway 27 between Sparta and Cashton.

The new food and drink restaurant is located on the former location of Low Places Bar and Grill, which previously housed the Frog Town Inn.

Footjoy beers are made in the small brewery on site and under contract (still using Forsberg’s grain) by Sand Creek Brewing Co. in Black River Falls. Some of its beer is sold to several bars and restaurants in the area and in Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

Forsberg grows the grains – wheat, barley, and rye – at his Footjoy Farm near Cataract and a farm in North Dakota that some of his cousins ​​own.

He grew up south of Minneapolis and grew coveted varieties of heirloom vegetables for Twin Cities restaurants for over 20 years. He still grows some heirloom vegetables for his new restaurant.

“We will support the local farms as much as possible,” said Forsberg about his new restaurant and brewery. “We want to buy as much fresh, local stuff as possible.

“It’s about the hard work and the change, it’s about how far we’ve come and, more importantly, how far we’ll go if we continue this work,” said Crawford.

In the further course of the work Bryan Stevenson, lawyer, professor and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, shared his hopes for the future in a keynote speech during the virtual speech.

“I believe that if we want to create a just society, we must all commit ourselves to drawing closer to the poor, the neglected, the excluded, the marginalized. We can’t build healthy communities in Duluth if we don’t look for ways to get closer to the people who are most marginalized, ”said Stevenson.

This news comes after a very difficult year for the black community.

“The death of George Floyd put Minnesota back on the map and challenged us to do better,” Crawford said.

With this in mind, Crawford hopes progress will be made.

“There are thousands who have taken to the streets for change – changes that can happen not just for our grandchildren, but changes that can happen in our lives now, as we come together and make a difference,” said Crawford.

Further efforts to honor Elias Clayton, Elmer Jackson and Isaac McGhie will take place this week.

There will be a gathering at Clayton, Jackson, and McGhie graves at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, and a memorial day will be held at the CJM Memorial on Tuesday from noon.

“It is so important that we remember on this day and this week what happened in Duluth in 1920,” said Stevenson.

“It’s about the hard work and the change, it’s about how far we’ve come and, more importantly, how far we’ll go if we continue this work,” said Crawford.

In the further course of the work Bryan Stevenson, lawyer, professor and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, shared his hopes for the future in a keynote speech during the virtual speech.

“I believe that if we want to create a just society, we must all commit ourselves to drawing closer to the poor, the neglected, the excluded, the marginalized. We can’t build healthy communities in Duluth if we don’t look for ways to get closer to the people who are most marginalized, ”said Stevenson.

This news comes after a very difficult year for the black community.

“The death of George Floyd put Minnesota back on the map and challenged us to do better,” Crawford said.

With this in mind, Crawford hopes progress will be made.

“There are thousands who have taken to the streets for change – changes that can happen not just for our grandchildren, but changes that can happen in our lives now, as we come together and make a difference,” said Crawford.

Further efforts to honor Elias Clayton, Elmer Jackson and Isaac McGhie will take place this week.

There will be a gathering at Clayton, Jackson, and McGhie graves at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, and a memorial day will be held at the CJM Memorial on Tuesday from noon.

“It is so important that we remember on this day and this week what happened in Duluth in 1920,” said Stevenson.

While new coronavirus virus cases remained in the single digits in the region on Sunday, vaccination rates also remain relatively stagnant.

The Minnesota Department of Health reported nine new virus cases in the coverage area of ​​The Free Press on Sunday. That’s the highest number since May 28, the last day regional cases hit double digits.

Blue Earth County has four new cases after consecutive days without a case. Watonwan County has two new cases and Faribault, Le Sueur, and Waseca Counties each have one.

There have been 173 other cases and nine deaths across Minnesota. Three of the youngest victims of the pandemic were in their forties.

The number of people who were at least partially vaccinated was nearly 3 million, according to Sunday’s data. That’s nearly 64% of eligible Minnesotans ages 12 and older. Over 2.7 million Minnesotans are now fully vaccinated – that’s nearly 59% of the eligible population.

The rate of vaccination has been largely in free fall since its peak in April.

Officials recently found that more than 70% of the population aged 16 and over in the Twin Cities metropolitan area had received at least one dose of vaccine, but the rate was below 60% in much of the state, creating a worrying urban-rural vaccination gap.

In regional terms, vaccination rates have only increased slightly in June.

In June, fewer than 2,000 doses of vaccine were administered in Blue Earth County, compared with peaks of over 17,000 in March and April. There were similar declines in all districts.

Counties Brown and Nicollet lead the region with over 60% of residents aged 12 and over who are now at least partially vaccinated. Blue Earth County is just behind with 59%

Le Sueur and Sibley counties are the only ones in the region where fewer than half of their eligible residents are at least partially vaccinated.

Minnesota has seen a remarkable increase in the number of children ages 12-15 since mid-May, when federal agencies approved the Pfizer vaccine for use at this age.

Health Department data shows that nearly 95,000 12 to 15 year olds received at least one dose, about 32% of that population.

Regionally, Blue Earth and Nicollet counties have slightly better percentages for this age group, while other counties are significantly lower – just 14% in Martin Counties.
