A modern classic, Housekeeping (published in 1980, about 200 pages) is the story of Ruth and her younger sister, Lucille, who grow up haphazardly, under the care of a succession of relatives. The sisters’ struggle toward adulthood beautifully illuminates the price of loss and survival, and the dangerous and deep undertow of transience. (description excerpted from Goodreads)
The book is on The Guardian’s 2015 list by Robert McCrum of the 100 Greatest Novels Written in English.
