    One thought on “Bread Upon the Waters

    1. Jason on said:

      This book is an ambitious attempt to chronicle the social entropy that can pull even loving people away from each other The story follows Allen Strand, a New York City public high school history teacher, as he tries to negotiate the formidable challenges that circumstance visits on him At the outset, his family unit is tightly knit his 17 year old daughter, Caroline, still lives at home and the other two slightly older children, Jimmy and Eleanor, are in close contact and Strand harbors a rather [...]

      Shaw at his brilliant best It made me feel dreadfully inadequate as a writer, but I couldn t put the book down, and, having read it, I know it s a book I ll come back and re read Shaw moralizes some in this story, but he exposes irrefutable truths about life, money, aspirations, priorities, parenting, families, the class structure, and the differences between generations It s a book I wish I d read some years ago, before I made some of the mistakes I regret in communication with my offspring It [...]

    4. Checkman on said:

      One of Shaw s last novels It s a simple story about a middle class family that unexpectedly finds itself with a wealthy benefactor He showers them with gifts ,of one type or another, and it essentially ruins the family As has been pointed out by another reviewer this novel is heavy with the feeling of mortality and end of life issues Shaw died in 1984 just three years after this novel was published Was he already ill when he wrote this book I don t know Was he just aware of his own approaching i [...]

    5. Rebecca on said:

      In the tradition of Agee s A Death in the Family, or Guest s Ordinary People, this is a book about a family s whose life changes drastically after their tennis playing teenage daughter becomes an unlikely hero one evening in Central Park Driven by this one catalyst, the events that play out for the Strand Family become like dominoes, each one building momentum as they fall against each other.Shaw does a masterful job with the narrative rhythm, careful not to show his hand too soon This might inf [...]

    6. Ronald Wise on said:

      A New York public school teacher seems to be content in dealing with the challenges of his job and watching his three children mature, when his daughter saves the live of a very wealthy man, whose displays of gratitude change everything Ironically this book was depressing for this middle aged reader, though it would probably take a man of middle age to really appreciate this book to its fullest End of life issues were prominent in this book and the author died three years after its publication I [...]

    7. Деница Райкова on said:

      Well, it was actually the second time I read this book The first time was maybe fifteen years ago And, of course, it s different now Maybe it s strange but the first time I liked it When I first read it I viewed it just as an interesting book by a great author Now it was interesting again because I had forgotten some things but I also felt some unexpected sadness and bitternes I still liked it but in a different way.

    8. Emanuela on said:

      the entire book is very easy to read and quite interesting, but I d preferred a focus on the character of Russell Hazen instead of the Strand family, in order to understand better his problems and circumstances that brought to his death.

    9. Shannon Oxley on said:

      This was my first introduction to Shaw This book was good on the surface, but the parts that were believable were boring, and the parts that were not boring, weren t believable Like, set in New York Okay, but visiting all the usual places, like the Guggenheim Central Park You have a high school teacher who works in the city he isn t that interested in much going on around him, except his wife For a man to sleep with his wife so much is probably fictional, in itself I suppose Shaw had to present [...]

    10. Susan Liston on said:

      The first three quarters of this book just sailed along for me, it s well written and the story was not the usual I had no clue where it was going and that was intriguing Then as the end drew nearer it seemed things hit a snag and stalled out and suddenly I had a terrible feeling I knew what would happen I fervently hoped I was wrong but I wasn t Sooooo.I enjoyed it for awhile, hated the ending But it IS a good book, I just in total didn t love it which is how I felt about Rich Man, Poor Man,too [...]

    11. Debbie Spendley on said:

      Outstanding It is always good to go back to the old masters of storytelling, which is what I did with the reading of Irwin Shaw s book Bread Upon the Waters He writes so eloquently of the human condition, whether it be about war or about a teacher in Manhattan This is a poignant story of life in these United States, of the rich and the poor and of the joys and travails of both.

    12. Angie on said:

      I felt kind of bad about my rating on this book ems it has a number of fans , but I was glad to see a few other reviews that didn t rant and rave about Bread Upon The Waters Of course it is well written with some intriguing characters I will even go as far as to admit it held my attention There is a lesson in the pages That being said , once I was finished with the book I wondered what the purpose of reading it was.Sigh

    13. Joan Sherizen on said:

      What a writer, what a story, what a book One of the wonderful things about Shaw s writing is that his characters are so fully fleshed out, inscribed so alive in our minds that we are made to truly care about them Although mainly recounted from the prospective of a 50 year old NYC mediocre public HS history professor over the course of a year, the author takes on a journey of fluid circumstances occasioned by an chance encounter that impacts an entire family.

    14. Ray on said:

      An interesting book Though written in 1981, the story holds up well Well worth the time invested in reading it.

    15. Barbara on said:

      This was a very slow read, and the end did not justify the read.

    16. Elaine on said:

      SPOILERS starting with 4th paragraphI re read this for the first time since its original publication in the 1980s At that time, I was very impressed with it.Why Well, as someone who felt great love for New York City particularly Manhattan and had aspirations of being wealthy, I experienced particular resonance with this novel Irwin Shaw, best known for World War II novels and multi generational epics such as Rich Man, Poor Man, was making something of a departure This, and Acceptable Losses, wer [...]

    17. Mark R. on said:

      Irwin Shaw had a real talent for writing about families never better than in the epic Rich Man, Poor Man and its follow up Beggarman, Thief Bread Upon the Waters spans than a year in the life of the Strand family, as they are the recipients of a great generosity that eventually dooms them Allen Strand makes a respectable living as a history teacher in the New York public school system He and his wife, Leslie, who gives piano lessons in their apartment, are mostly happy His oldest daughter, Elea [...]

    18. Gregg Cebrzynski on said:

      This is Irwin Shaw s finest novel It has none of the glitz and glamour for which Shaw was unjustly criticized in previous books, yet the story, as in his other novels, focuses on the moral choices we all face Reading this book, my heart ached for the problems Allen Strand had to overcome It s a cliche to say I felt his pain, but it s true And I kept rooting for his family, hoping that nothing bad would befall them My own novels deal with families and their struggles, so perhaps I was attuned to [...]

    19. Ron on said:

      Irwin Shaw is probably best known for his classic World War II novel The Young Lions published in 1948 In Bread Upon the Waters , written than 35 years later, Shaw tells the story of a middle class New York City family who s lives are interrupted, then changed forever by a chance encounter with a wealthy, powerful corporate attorney Slowly each member of the family is drawn unwittingly by this dominate, controlling personality into making dramatic and unforeseen decisions about their lives and [...]

    20. Jon on said:

      Another engrossing story from Shaw I have to admit that he has become one of my favorite writers in the last year before which I had never heard of him I don t necessarily appreciate his sometimes gratuitous over descriptions of certain aspects of New York one thing that bothered me about Wolfe s The Bonfire of the Vanities , but the stories he tells keep you turning pages and his style is readable, efficient, and, most importantly, interesting.

    21. Jim on said:

      This was a thought provoking novel it deals with the interactions between affluence, happiness, family and friendship dynamics and the modern moral dilemmas that face inter generational relationships It looks at how we deal with expectations in our marriages and for our children What I really enjoyed was the thinking that is unspoken by the main character.

    22. Lee on said:

      Somewhat unsure how I feel about this book A perfect little family is radically changed when a rich and powerful man comes into their lives were they better off before or after Was it a good thing when the husband father learns about family secrets This would be a good book for a book club discussion I should think.

    23. Gloria on said:

      I read this book a very very long time ago, I loved it s essence It was speaking about different types of happiness Some people may have great things, but have terrible things happen to them, and of course vice for versus I loved the angles of the story, they fit very well with the authors grasp to explain that not everything is as it seems, and there is a lot to be said for that.

    24. Bpatoosk on said:

      I liked this a little than Evening in Byzantium Both are good solid reads by a great author The only thing that keeps me from giving these books stars is his use of such passive protagonists This book is good though it ll keep you reading and make you think.
