About The Book
Did she say, at the beginning, that it rained every day? She was wrong. She misspoke. She didn’t mean it…. No. It did not rain every day. But it rained for a hundred days, that year, which was enough — more than enough, even.
In elliptical prose by turn haunting and crystalline, Carellin Brooks’ One Hundred Days of Rain enumerates an unnamed narrator’s encounters with that most quotidian of subjects: rain.
In the wake of her recent disastrous breakup, the narrator must rebuild a life from the bottom up. Whether riding the bus with her small child, searching for an apartment to rent, or merely calculating out the cost of meagre lunches, the world forever intrudes. The narrator’s compulsive cataloguing of rain’s vicissitudes forms a kind of quiet meditation: an acknowledgement of the ongoing weight of sadness, the texture of it, and its composition — not only emotional weight, but also the persistent presence of all the things a person deals with when she’s rebuilding a life.
