Wickett's Remedy

Wickett's Remedy

by Myla Goldberg

 

Judy Stanton: I saw Myla Goldberg at the Jewish Book Festival first when she was a young, new author talking about Bee Season. She was dressed in striped knee-high socks, funny glasses, and her hair had a mind of its own. So, I went back to hear her talk about Wickett's Remedy. I just got around to reading it, and the quirky format reflects her style. I have to admit that I didn't read many of the little sidebars because I found them a little distracting. But I did enjoy the book. Her characters are well developed and endearing. I was not familiar with the influenza epidemic of the early 1900s and found that fascinating. She evidently did excellent research which made the book more realistic. She had two stories running congruously, about the epidemic & Wickett's remedy, and while the intertwining was obvious, they never converged in the way I expected.
