Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

One of our country's most acclaimed and beloved entertainers, Steve Martin has written a novella that is unexpectedly perceptive about relationships and life. Martin is profoundly wise when it comes to the inner workings of the human heart.

Mirabelle is the "shopgirl" of the title, a young woman, beautiful in a wallflowerish kind of way, who works behind the glove counter at Neiman Marcus "selling things that nobody buys anymore . . ."

Slightly lost, slightly off-kilter, very shy, Mirabelle charms because of all that she is not: not glamorous, not aggressive, not self-aggrandizing. Still there is something about her that is irresistible.

Mirabelle captures the attention of Ray Porter, a wealthy businessman almost twice her age. As they tentatively embark on a relationship, they both struggle to decipher the language of love--with consequences that are both comic and heartbreaking. Filled with the kind of witty, discerning observations that have brought Steve Martin critical success, Shopgirl is a work of disarming tenderness.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Crude sexual descriptions did me in 22 septembre 2015
Par JustaGuy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I love Steve Martin and was sure this would be a delightful little read. I don't consume any pornography so I am likely far more sensitive about crude, explicit descriptions of sexual activity than others. I finally had to abandon the book because of these descriptions even though I wanted to go on see what he did with the characters. I would never have guessed that Steve Martin would produce this kind of material.

I had to abandon "House of Cards" on Netflix after 3 or 4 episodes because of the creepy, dirty sex. So, yeah, I'm that guy and I'm sure this invalidates whatever I may say here for a lot of people.

If you like this book you will love the movie too ..because it is more delicately focused on the heart than the ruminations of the mind.
This book is so lovely.
It is such an insightful observation of the openness of youth and the unconsciousness of self protection that can only, through heartbreak, make one capable of experiencing empathy.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I laughed, I cried (and I'm being serious...) 21 janvier 2001
Par Chel Micheline - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book was one of the rare few that manages to both digust me and delight me at the same time. This is not a light book by any means. I was expecting it to be, so I sort of got knocked out by it. I alternated between hating the main character (Mirabelle),wishing she'd get herself together and completely sympathizing with her (and her deep depression) in a way I haven't been able to with any other character in any other book.
Martin is a great writer, and manages to blend humor with the serious subject of loneliness. He never gives Mirabelle too much credit, but he never dismisses her, either. He writes with a remarkable amount of tenderness. The characters that filled this book (only three, besides Mirabelle) were neither celebrated or ridiculed, instead just came into their own, on their own terms. It's very rare that characters in a book can step out of the pages and breathe, but Martin makes that happen.
I'm not sure what else to write, because I don't want to spoil the book. I would highly recommend it. It's a quick read, and it's not exactly a joyous one, but you will find it hard to put down this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great movie, had to get the book 9 mai 2013
Par nancy w - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Loved the movie, so I got the book to learn more about the characters. There seemed to be more to Ray Porter than the movie could portray
Ray Porter in the movie was a wealthy man who selfishly controlled relationships with women because it suited him. The book revealed a socially inept Ray Porter whose Type A side so dominated his touchy feely side, that he was clueless when it came to women. He was kind and made women feel special by spending a lot of money on them. Yet he was convinced that they understood he was practicing for the woman he would marry but had not yet met.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Shopgirl - No Markdowns Here 17 octobre 2000
Par M. McCoy - Publié sur Amazon.com

As one who honors the creative and ranks it right up there with courage and character, I have to say Steve Martin is at the head of the class. To get there he has traveled what most would consider a reverse route, from the ridiculous to the sublime.
I saw him first in the Seventies when he was still working 100 person rooms. I honestly think that he extended my first marriage several years, simply by his being, as my then wife put it, the first man "I've seen who's crazier than you." (I was honored then and am humbled now.) From the arrow through his head to the "I've got happy feet" routine, he could easily be said to have honed the ridiculous its keenest edge.
Now comes "Shopgirl", a sublime novella that reads like a poem, written in the present tense, with pluperfect timing and a natural rhythm that understands both the prism of the mind and the darkness that invades its gloomiest depths.
Without naming names and explicating plot twists, (It is a novella, of course, and even a little explicating goes a long way towards replicating, and then what's the use of buying the book.) there are few people of insight who will not identify some with one or more the characters, to the point even of wondering how Martin could have possibly known that about them.
Buy this book, but do yourself a favor. Don't speed through it. Savor it. Read each word and feel each meaning, for this work is as much about writing as it is about disaster and triumph. It must have been an exquisite pain the Martin endured to write something this sublime and this revealing.
Most great comics are also great tragedians, Charlie Chaplin, Jackie Gleason, Red Skelton, for example. Martin's depth is telling. What hath he wrought (or is it writ)? He may think I'm way off base, but imagine Olive Oyl meets Sylvia Plath and the Frog/Prince. You can't? Then buy this book.
I'd be surprised if you didn't think it fit like a glove.
