Berlioz and the Romantic Century gHave you ever read one of those run on sentences those sentences that keepoing on and on and on the end of it is not to be seen you are nowhere close to it and yet you are still engaged in what they are supposed to convey Building Ideas: An Architectural Guide to the University of Chicago giving you still to read to ponder to wonder about and such is this story with only seven chapters consisting of one sentence each and in which the first ones there is this brooding and steaming sensuality between an older man and a young woman who spent the night together but when the morning fog blankets theround there is this change in the man s demeanor triggered by something so trivial that he erupts in a sudden outburst of anger which he then turns towards the woman who cannot but return with provoking and snide remarks of her own making this an intense chapter with so much tension that it can only end in an explosive climax such is this book that made it to the Man Booker International Prize Nominee for Longlist 2016 written in the 70 s by the reclusive Brazilian Raduan Nassar and now finally translated into English after almost forty years a job well done by Stefan Tobler a book that made headlines and was turned into a movie with themes of differences in social class and Canadian Art, Volume 1 (A-F): Canadian Art: Volume I (A-F) gender so the rest of the world can finally love it or hate it there is no middleround here stylistically so different from what you re used to read that you have to read it twice the second time paying attention as the run on sentences were uite distracting the first time around making you lose track of your place in the story so you appreciate it so much now as this style enforces the passion and rage between the two lovers which leaves you breathless in the endinhales and breathes outExtraA word from the translatorBook review in the Guardian Read this for our May Short Story Month Marathon a personal challenge during which Alex and I will be oing through our short story collection in this last week of May I m adding a little twist to it by reading books by authors I haven t read from before 45 You don t find erotica on Booker Prize lists at least not since the 1970s But there s no other word to describe the opening chapters of this tiny book Which incidentally was Written In The 1970s In in the 1970s in This seems to be another of those occasions when I agree with critics not only the Booker International judges also Nick Lezard in the *guardian than with the rest of the eneral * than with the rest of the eneral a few of whom have panned this on UK since taking up Lezard recommendation Blame it on similar educational class background that used to want to be a critic myself whatever But I thought no doubt partly conditioned by other recent reat reading experiences featuring vast run on sentences that these 60 pages featuring one of those relationships that to the best of my knowledge only happens in films and consists entirely of amazing sex and blazing rows were really rather stunning The story is a very physical experience I started trying to read it on the computer sitting at a table in a rigid plastic chair couldn t Bulletproof Feathers get into it and it was obvious why Moving to a comfortable location it became immersive the words seeped into the body there was stretching out of limbs wriggling of toes The sensuality of the first chapters carries over into The Explosion the elouently vicious row packed with subtle innuendosiving the whole story the feeling of the hottest summer days off sun and sweat clinging to the skin and few obligations when everything seems tinged with potential sexuality It makes the most unlikely things sound sexy tropical algebra heated as its origins blood sand Yet if the argument is read in isolation its intellectual and verbal dexterity instead appears paramount Having been reading Elena Ferrante s Neapolitan Novels recently I was struck by a parallel the following could have as easily been said by Lila in book two as by Nassar s male narrator you shitty intellectual it never occurred to you that everything you say and everything you vomit up is all stuff that you ve heard from other people that you haven t done any of the stuff you talk about Actually actually what a sup.

R that two people who just had sex might provoke many kind of reactions including anger and the book uses this fact Prose is beautiful but overall effect not so much Incredibly well written steamy violent with class struggle elements erotic novella I m sorry but I couldn t suck the toes of a Carson Pirie Scott: Louis Sullivan and the Chicago Department Store guy who doesn t use full stops After finishing this slip of a thing I Googled some reviews and was amazed to find a couple of criticsetting sweaty palmed about the whole thing Nicholas Lezard appears to have had a whale of a time incredibly sexy he says I remained utterly unstirred It never occurred to me that I was supposed to feel any other wayStylistically it shares a ood deal with Jose Saramago The looping sentences take up entire chapters and lend it a uality of breathlessness It also shares Saramago s obsession with Fernando Pessoa whose The Book of Disuiet I didn T GET ALONG WITH AT ALL THE STORY CONCERNS get along with at all The story concerns supremely arrogant narrator and a younger journalist having sex and then engaging in a slanging match It s about shifting power relationships I suppose with each party deliberately Provoking The Other Insight Wise the other Insight wise is nothing enlightening The long argument is pretentious I am boring myself writing about it published in english concurrently with ancient tillage raduan nassar s a cup of rage um copo de c lera is the slimmer vehement of the two barely some five dozen pages long the brazilian author s 1978 book is the venomous tale of two lovers who devolve into verbal brutality and malice following an intimate evening together composed of six short chapters and one long one the explosion a cup of rage is essentially seven sentences long a stylistic choice which surely heightens the tension described as erotic in both publisher copy and several favorable reviews a cup of rage is anything but there s nothing sexy about an abusive encounter though the narrative does offer a hearty dose of schadenfreude the ferocity of this story is countered tempered by nassar s command of language but it s not enough to carry it through the cruelty endured and enforced by both characters doesn t seem to serve an end save for allowing the reader a voyeuristic limpse into disharmony and dysfunction a cup of rage is the fascinating and significant of the twin translations but neither fulfilled the promise of superlatives bestowed nassar undoubtedly is an interesting Chameleon Hours gifted writer and having both of his works now available in english translation is its own reward but neither a cup of rage nor ancient tillage warrant words like masterpiece oreniusshould you need vitriol in your readerly life be sure to check out castellanos moya s revulsion thomas bernhard in san salvador or the titular austrian master himself but i didn t really want to smack her you think i m into hitting you do you idiot and seeing in this perhaps a step backwards a weakness or who knows what and making her own associations she sparked back metallic and her scornful laugh cut me ha ha hah you ueer was the sharp and her scornful laugh cut me ha ha hah you ueer was the sharp the piranha Chicago Architecture (Architecture Urbanism) gave me trying to castrate me with a single swipe of her knife obviously yet like the carnival trannie the thick hairs of her ideologyave her away she who trumpeted her protest against torture while at the same time being a shameless torturer in daily life just like the people made in her image there in football stadiums just like the Chicago Neighborhoods and Suburbs: A Historical Guide government the oppressor that she fought tirelessly i only know that s what stopped us in our tracks the circus caught fire a mask lay on theround in the ring my architecture collapsed in flames including its iron structure and burning myself i said whore it was an explosion in my mouth and my hand flying another explosion in her face and the Citrus: A History good smack in the face wasn t part of the ritual i now intentionally used the palm of my hand together with the repressive weapons in her arsenal yes i dive her both an outburst and a beating so i said whore again and again my hand flew out and i saw her rosy skin stain red and her whole face be covered suddenly by a swarm of ants translated from the portuguese by stefan tobler and other stories publisher. Ce written by one of Brazil’s most highly regarded modernists explores alienation arrogance machismo meltdown the desire to dominate and the wish to be dominat. Ercilous word to prove their point I agree but fuck that I enjoy it Nassar s story also occasionally has ambushes of humour Or I thought so anyway in PARTICULAR WHEN A SCENE OF FRUSTRATION when a scene of frustration a farming problem presumably mundane in Brazil but exotic here intrudes suddenly into the almost hermetic sensory world of the lovers and the housekeeper who has been waiting on them Both are experiences of nature which should unite them yet one appears sublime the other ridiculous Then there s the most ornithologically specific insult I ve ever heard you piece of short billed pipit shit I daresay short billed pipits are common in Brazil and probably have a one word name there but regardless it raised the wonderfully comical spectre of how twitchers might diss one another Yes there are also a handful of un PC insults used that some readers may mind but there is a certain euality between the characters here which I didn t necessarily expect from a nearly 40 year old book by a South American male writer Compared for instance with some of the notorious Maruez plots Sexually the man is as much object as subject at least as much Building the South Side: Urban Space and Civic Culture in Chicago, 1890-1919 gazed upon asazing I noticed how during the erotic chapters my provisional rating changed depending on whether I imagined the most attractive men I d ever slept with or someone almost but not uite as Cite Right: A Quick Guide to Citation Styles--MLA, APA, Chicago, the Sciences, Professions, and More good looking or the author s photo no thanks too old for me but the writing alone was still tooood to rate below 40 And during the row whilst there are nits to pick if that s what you Classic Rough News get off on each belittles the other and verballyives as Class and Conformity: A Study in Values - With a Reassessment (Midway Reprint) good as theyet view spoilerFollowing the row a second chapter named The Arrival narrated by her he narrated the first Arrival promises her side of the story in the same seuence Her account of her arrival at his house is surprisingly different And then the book ends I can see ways that feminist critics might use this critically But as far as I was concerned it was tantalising and so very suited to the sensory mood of the book and the fully mirrored story whether man or woman had one first would have been too pat less stylish than this abrupt unconclusion hide spoiler I wasn t aware books came with teeth Readers beware But all this discursive aggression was verging exhaustively on the monotonousthe narrator tells us at one point and really that sums up this book uite a remarkable achievement to make a 45 page novel tedious but Nassar and his translator Tobler manage it Nicholas Lezard *in the Guardian made the obvious comparison to the master of the rant Thomas Bernhard Guardian Having read * the Guardian made the obvious comparison to the master of the rant Thomas Bernhard Guardian Having read Bernhard novels Nassar is no Bernhard to the master of the rant Thomas Bernhard Guardian Having read 18 Bernhard novels Nassar is no Bernhard a thesaurus and when that fails as it freuently does throwing in swear words doesn t make ood literature If there is a comparison at all it s to Kirsy McColl and Shane McGowan in the Fairytale of New York but at least that had a Common People: The History of An English Family great tuneNow I will admit that perhaps one needs to be in a certain mood and of a certain mindset to properly appreciate this Bloggers and Goodreads reviews whose views I respect and whose taste I often share love it So for a favourable take read the Guardian piece this from Goodreads and this from the translator which describes the novel well An older chauvinist farmer tells of the furious argument that engulfs him and his younger urban feministirlfriend after she spends the night on his farm Neither character comes out of it well Nassar Citizens and Paupers: Relief, Rights, and Race, from the Freedmen's Bureau to Workfare gives us the painfullibness of the middle class woman s liberal posturing as well as an egotistical male whose mouth runs away from him into bombast and ravings and whose violence is triggered by something no bigger than leaf cutter antsHe also notes that only on a second read or as an editor or translator do you see the intricate patterns and repetitions that combine to produce this crushing emotional onslaught but despite the 45 page length I m afraid life is too short for me to read this twice Hated this book I only conquest and community:the afterlife of warrior saint ghazi miyan gave it 2 stars because the author can write Otherwise this is a pretentious bunch of drivel in my opinion 7 chapters 7 full stops Intimacy and sudden emotional vulnerability to each othe. H other Amid vitriolic insults and scorching cruelty their sexual adventure turns into a savage powerame between two warring egos This intense erotic masterpie. .
