Close to Home by Ellen Goodman was published in 1979. This book - which resulted in Goodman's winning the Pulitzer Prize - is much too good to be forgotten.

Close to Home by Ellen Goodman was published in 1979. The book is a selection of her columns of 1976, 1977, and 1978. The selections are divided into nine sections (number of selections in parentheses): Our Times (17) People (10) Women (14) Personals (10) Relationships (10) Family (7) Parents and Children (19) Foibles (11) Social Issues (11) Each selection (with month and year of original publication) is a page and a half in the book. Reading this kind of intelligence causes a change in me: I think better and process more logically.

Closer to Home is the third studio album by American rock band Grand Funk Railroad. It was produced by Terry Knight.

A stylish writer with a humanizing touch on any issue, public or personal. Ellen Goodman of the Mass. In this book, two children brew up increasingly wild adventures that befall mom and dad in an evening

Close to Home is a collection of some of her pieces from the past three years. I rather like the book and am a confirmed Ellen Goodman fan, so I was puzzled as to why some of it seems shallow and insubstantial. I suspect it is the form; few columnists stand up well to being collected.

Close to Home is a collection of some of her pieces from the past three years. Humor seems to wear better than profundity in collec- tions.

Close to Home by Ellen Goodman was published in 1979. The book is a selection of her columns of 1976, 1977, and 1978. The selections are divided into nine sections (number of selections in parentheses):
Our Times (17)
People (10)
Women (14)
Personals (10)
Relationships (10)
Family (7)
Parents and Children (19)
Foibles (11)
Social Issues (11)
Each selection (with month and year of original publication) is a page and a half in the book.
For those, like myself, who grew up in the late 1970s, the book is of nostalgia. I liked the selection "The Cult of Impotence" (pp. 30-1). Ellen writes, "If they ever dig down through the layers of future generations, looking for artifacts that tell something about mid-seventies America, let's hope they find John Lilly's isolation tank. It will tell them a great deal." Ellen continues to tell of the "fragmentation of society and the missed connections of our personal lives." Or, in short, "hyperindividualism," as she terms those mid-1970s in the same piece.
I enjoyed reading this book, stepping into the past and re-viewing the times through the words of Ellen Goodman.

I used to read Ellen Goodman's syndicated columns regularly in our local paper. I always found her intelligence very bracing and admirable; in fact I think she's one of the most intelligent contemporary writers I've ever read. This book, a collection of columns from roughly a 3 year period in the mid-to-late 1970s, was passed on to me last year. It had me up late at night, reading one entry after another. It so perfectly encapsulates that time period, what was going on, what was discussed, and what current trends held forth. Politics, family, women, social issues, relationships, people, parenthood - there is no topic in which Goodman is not acutely well-informed. Her strength of being, wry wit, and unyielding classiness always prevails. Goodman is that rarity: she is *never* annoying; ego, *of* the annoying type, never intrudes. Misguided people will take that to mean I think she's perfect, but my response to that is that I don't think on that sort of good/bad scaling judgment factor. Excellence is excellence. Good taste is good taste. Furthermore, her logic and reasoning in her observations are, to my mind, faultlessly established. It is an unbelievable luxury to be privy to this kind of advanced-thought sensibility. This book - which resulted in Goodman's winning the Pulitzer Prize - is much too good to be forgotten. Reading this kind of intelligence causes a change in me: I think better and process more logically. I will for sure be acquiring Goodman's other books.
