Jane Lowy's literary novel Wobbly Barstool is a Victorian-era tale of friendship and love, whose protagonists display anachronistically progressive mind-sets in a Dickensian milieu of drama and playfulness. It challenges traditional concepts of morality while ultimately asserting the intrinsic value of marital, familial, and platonic bonds. It may appeal to readers interested in such classic writers as Charles Dickens, Anthony Trollope, or Jane Austen. Good-natured Wobbly, a young man residing in a Victorian English village, loves Prunella, a London socialite whom he meets during her visit with Wobbly's cousin, Marigold. Marigold adores brilliant, articulate Tobias, Wobbly's adopted brother, discovered and befriended by Wobbly when they are boys, the orphaned Tobias having survived for two years wandering a nearby wood with a pack of dogs. As a warm and complex relationship develops among the four, Wobbly and Marigold find themselves in the painful position of imagining that their dearest friends are their rivals, a mutual fascination of sorts existing between Prunella and Tobias who, unknown to any of them, are siblings, Prunella having been forced from her parents at age two by her ruthless, manipulative aunt. Over the next four years, while Marigold waits for Tobias, Wobbly pursues Prunella with gentle persistence as she struggles between her strong sense of filial duty and her growing acceptance and love of Wobbly, whom her adoptive mother adamantly rejects. The course of their lives is, all the while, overseen and subtly influenced by the mysterious solicitor Beggintrade, for reasons of his own. Wobbly Barstool is meant to offer readers a fun, life-affirming story with memorable characters that they can delight in and love.

Out of the blue, a telephone call from an artist friend of thirty years ago and half a continent away! As i always do to enthusiasm, I said yes. I would love to read his wife's book, was sure I could review it here and there although I am not yet well connected in Canada as I was in New York.

A few weeks later a package arrived in Toronto from Houston, TX. From the first peek inside, I was regaled with delight. The , traditional binding of forest green , the gold filament details all reminded me instantly and my youthful excitement at opening a new Dickens or Jane Austen in the public library. Our class would march down once a week from Corinth Elementary in north Mississippi and my mother had made clear to the local libarians that "her girls" could pick from any book in the house. I think I was in the fifth grade when I hit A Tale of Two Cities.

Right now, however, I am pulling Wobbly Barstool from it's next of brighter green tissue and bubble pack. I knew David Lowy as a consumate pen and ink artist a generation ago but iI see he is very much present in this work by his wife, whom I have never met.

I saved the volume for a special quiet time in bed last summer. One doesn't find new Dickens or Austen's often and they are to be hoarded for exactly when one is in the mood. From the first page, I was enchanted: a new literary voice, an old morality re-ensioned and told through the antics of characters with names that made me laugh out loud. (My favorites were "Few and Farbetween." Love triangles abound (as in life), family values on display are the real ones I recognize from childhood--not some sociopolitical bombast. Page turning actions on par with Henry James' The Turn of the Screw.

If you pick it up, you will not put it down. It's a good read for every member of the family, even those too young to read it for themselves. Well educated adults will grieve that so much of the trash coming out of New York has gobbled up the young minds of our adolescents. But visionaries will get to work! Get the book into their public libraries, their kids' school libraries, their church and synagogue libraries. For as the hero of the book puts it, " The whole world has gone mad....then we must return it to sanity." Ms. Lowy even tells us how: by the good ship, Determination.

Wobbly Barstool Wobbly Barstool is not a rickety piece of pub furniture. Wobbly Barstool is an innocent, yet far from simple, young fellow growing up on a 19th century English farm, who spends a number of years faithfully pursuing his love at first sight, the reluctant socialite from London, Prunella Baddonschilde. Wobbly strives to broaden his worldliness, but for this ingenuous young man with rural roots, seeking his true love's hand is of course severely hampered by the young woman's social-climbing mother, who would sooner die than see her daughter marry anyone less than a peer of the realm. (A large cast of other characters also navigate the wending paths of life's vicissitudes.)
Jane Lowy, in her first book, has written a charming, carefully and cleverly crafted, lighthearted yet powerful Victorian-era literary novel that will both entertain and deeply move its audience. Through her characters she touts the benefits of an amiable, simple life, appreciative of nature, strong friendships, and family connections based on love rather than social ambition. She urges us to work toward a world of cooperation among people and animals, and even gently promotes vegetarianism.
In a story filled with puzzling mysteries, loyalty, persistence, even danger, Wobbly Barstool gives us a good, old-fashioned life-affirming story, unlike much of the lurid prose passing for literature these days.

What a gem of a read! This book was a gift, I love the classic style hardback, and it sits on a coffee table to be admired.

However, when visitors start browsing through, they beg me to lend it to them. I refuse, they have to purchase their own. Why? Because it is a book I enjoy, a story I found myself absorbed within, and pick it up to read various snippets on regular occasions.

The Victorian era comes alive in a way which allows us in the 21st century to gain a perspective which may surprise many readers who think they have that era pegged in this witty and endearing story of a vulnerable but somehow abiding character.
Wobbly Barstool is a charming story about a remarkable family filled with wonderful characters. The tale is optimistic and exciting, thrilling up 'til the end. There are many positive messages and themes, too. Read this book!
