The Crane Wife
A Memoir in Essays
מאת CJ Hauser
קח בהשאלה קח בהשאלה
A memoir in essays that expands on the viral sensation “The Crane Wife” with a frank and funny look at love, intimacy, and self in the twenty-first century. From friends and lovers to blood family and chosen family, this “elegant masterpiece” (Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author of Hunger) asks what more expansive definitions of love might offer ​us all.
A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: TIME, THE GUARDIAN, GARDEN & GUN

"Hauser builds their life's inventory out of deconstructed personal narratives, resulting in a reading experience that's rich like a complicated dessert—not for wolfing down but for savoring in small bites." —The New York Times
“Hauser’s wry, introspective investigation of their assumptions about love will likely free readers to examine their own personal narratives as well ... ‘The rare happy ending I appreciate is one that makes room for the whole painful fact of the world at the same time it offers the reader some joy,’ they write. The Crane Wife embraces this philosophy again and again as Hauser excavates their past loves and losses, thoughtfully examines them and declares the pain of love to be worth the risk.” —BookPage
Ten days after calling off their wedding, CJ Hauser went on an expedition to Texas to study the whooping crane. After a week wading through the gulf, they realized they'd almost signed up to live someone else's life. 
Hauser releases themself from traditional narratives of happiness and goes looking for ways of living that leave room for the unexpected, making plenty of mistakes along the way. They kiss Internet strangers and officiates at a wedding. They reread Rebecca in the house their boyfriend once shared with his ex-wife and rewinds Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story to learn how not to lose yourself in a relationship. They think about Florence Nightingale at a robot convention and grief at John Belushi’s rock and roll gravesite, and the difference between those stories we’re asked to hold versus those we choose to carry.
Told with the late-night barstool directness of your wisest, most bighearted friend, The Crane Wife is a book for everyone whose life doesn't look the way they thought it would; for everyone learning to find joy in the not-knowing; for everyone trying, if sometimes failing, to build a new sort of life story, a new sort of family, a new sort of home, to live in.

    Blood

     

    twenty-­seven love stories

     

    i | put your boots on, 1918

     

    C

    ap Joyce was a cowboy who ran an Arizona dude ranch called the Spur Cross because acting like a cowboy, for tourists, was more lucrative than the actual herding of cattle. He had a trick horse named Patches that could bow, roll over, and nod the answers to math questions. Sometimes Cap stood on Patches’s back and played guitar. Then the Great War came. He sold Patches and left his wife in charge of the ranch and went off to fight in France, where he was mustard-­gassed, but survived, and was heavily be-­medaled for the trouble. He was my great-­ grandfather.

     

    Cap had been home a week when the ranch hands took him aside and said that his wife had been carrying on with the foreman. They wouldn’t have mentioned it, the ranch hands said, except they didn’t seem to be stopping.

     

    Cap said, “Where is he?”

     

    Cap went to the bunks. The foreman was dressing.

     

    “You fuck my wife?” Cap said.

     

    The man froze. “Yes,” he said.

     

    Cap said, “Put your boots on.”

     

    The foreman put on his boots.

     

    Cap shot him dead. He did not bleed much, they say.

     

    ii | nion maid, 1984

     

    My first kiss was a communist. His name was Jack. He was part of a kids’ playgroup in New York City. All the mothers were part of the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union except for mine. Her involvement remains a mystery.

     

    In the playgroup, the babies crawled over the carpet and the mothers shared pots of coffee and by and large the babies were naked and if they were not naked they were wearing overalls. Good communist babies wear overalls.

     

    Here are some of the things that I wore: a tiny pair of lederhosen (Germany), a real silk kimono with a red bird stitched on the breast (Japan), a rabbit-­fur coat with wood fasteners (Russia). My grandparents had been traveling and always sent me, the first grandchild, souvenirs.

     

    There is a picture of this first kiss. Jack, in overalls, is on hands and knees, long black hair in ringlets. I am practically bald, bending toward him, hands planted on the rug. I am wearing a pink velveteen jacket (Paris).

     

    A week later the union ladies said: “You can’t keep coming if you dress her like that.” The week after, my mother brought me to the group in the rabbit-­fur coat, not thinking the union ladies were serious. They were.

     

    iii | he land office, 1921

     

    When Cap got out of prison he went to the land office with a mind to start a new ranch in Wyoming. There was a woman at the front desk, a secretary. Her name was Robbie Baker.

     

    “Can I help you?” she said.

     

    “I’m going to marry you,” Cap said. “And I need some land.”

     

    That was my great-­grandmother.

     

    iv | eesting, 1989

     

    Brian Katrumbus could run faster than any boy in kindergarten and had hair like corn silk. It was Valentine’s Day. A week earlier, when I’d been stung by a bee while daydreaming out the window and then cried quietly, not knowing what to do, it was Brian Katrumbus who told the teacher that something was wrong with me. He poked the teacher and said, “Something is wrong with...

    Starred review from April 4, 2022
    In this perceptive and probing work, novelist Hauser (Family of Origin) brilliantly parses the myths that shaped her understanding of love. She glides into the nonfiction realm on the wings of the book’s title essay, which originally ran in the Paris Review in 2019, wherein an ornithological expedition helped Hauser to identify her own needs after a called-off engagement and years of self-abnegation. In the sparkling meditations that rise from it, Hauser gently unravels the “barometer” of happiness that gave her epiphanic moment its power. In “Blood,” she juxtaposes the innocent makings of a 1990s middle school crush with a romantic relationship in 2008 that went a year too long thanks to Barack Obama, who “raised our expectations of what redemptive things were possible.” “Nights We Didn’t” reflects on the growing pains of Hauser’s queerness that “made me dangerous,” while another poignant essay reconciles her desire for motherhood with that of “sexual abandon.” While readers may root for a cathartic ending of self-actualization, Hauser shrewdly argues that, in real life, most years are spent painfully relearning the same lessons. “If you are feeling unsatisfied that I am not tying these threads together for you,” she writes, “ask yourself: Who told you these things went together?” It all adds up to a thrillingly original deconstruction of desire and its many configurations.

    Starred review from December 1, 2022

    Hauser (Family of Origin) enchants with a gorgeous short essay memoir about love in many forms. Hauser builds off her viral success of the titular story of canceled wedding plans turned bird-watching expedition. Each narrative is so rich with detail and emotional honesty that listeners will surely be enchanted by Hauser's take on life's many messes. Ever the English teacher, Hauser uses literary and cultural texts as a talisman for her personal relationships. Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story explores self-actualization, the book Rebecca becomes an examination of her current lover's relationship with his ex-wife, Shirley Jones's old house becomes a meditation on her sister's new motherhood, and John Belushi's death is a connection to her late grandmother. Hauser is as charming as she is sensitive, so each story requires listeners to take care and not overdose on emotional rawness. Hauser delivers her sharp sentences delicately with brushes of sardonic wit. The audio is edited without many pauses, so each chapter flows into the other at an uninterrupted pace. VERDICT Nothing short of a marvel, Hauser's writing, combined with stellar narration, creates an exceptional audio experience.--Lizzie Nolan
