Read full description of the books:



Ruby wrote letters home almost every week....She wrote anything that came into her head: about her children and Fred, her housekeeping, food, clothes, her friends, activities, schemes for making money, her dreams for the future....Her letters, nave, intimate and lively, were always optimistic or poignant. Wed read them to each other on the phone or pass them around. Often we saved them. So writes Edna Staebler in her introduction to this edited collection of her sister Rubys letters from the fifties. In 1957 when Edna first began to collect and edit these letters she did so simply because she was sure that others would enjoy reading them as much as her own family did. Nearly forty years later, the letters remain a joy to read and reclaim the ordinary voice of a housewife. Remarkably, these letters echo themes academics want to isolate in order to analyze womens roles in the modern world drifting (life just happened to me) and contingency (womens lives depend on relationships), for example, as well as the balance between family and work. As a fine example of womens life writing they also illustrate the literary patterns of overt and covert stories and of textual and subtextual meaning.

Reviews of the Haven't Any News: Ruby's Letters from the Fifties


FINLAY

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

EVAN

I really hated the book.

HOLLIE

Phone number you need to drive to protect against robots.

SAMUEL

How many times did I read ...-not boring! )))

LAYLA

Total disappointment
