    Download [The Doubleman] ï Christopher J. Koch There is no uestion that Christopher Koch is a great Australian writer and that his words flow across the page s with great elouence and the surety of a master of his craftThe Doubleman which was awarded the Miles Franklin prize in 1985 is surely a fine example the author's talent and yet I found it ultimately to be not uite satisfyingIt didn't uite measure up to his later 1995 Miles Franklin award winner Highways To a War set in the killin

doubt that author cared for pedants like me though I had never heard of magic mushroom cookies ither Maybe someone can tell me different on that In the French Daguerreotypes end annjoyable read very good writer and look forward to reading by him but not a book worthy of the Miles Franklin Award in my view En Espa a se public con l t tulo de El doble Me dio a conocer la Lejana Tasmania Su Capital Tasmania su capital y despu s Australia El tema de la m sica folk me ntusiasm Koch starts his story out in Hobart Tasmania a part of the world I know nothing about but hope to visit someday Three young Tasmanians come of age in this story with lives woven together like leaves on Palm Sunday starting out from St Augustine s boy s school Women of all ages figure big in the plot Reminds me of The Hungry Wolves of Van Diemen s Land in some ways with its atmospheric depictions of old Tasmania and dreamlike faerieland scenes I m not very familiar with Sydney but the later chapters set there are also full of atmosphere with the erie prescence of the doubleman finding his way back to the protagonist after many years of abscence The descriptions of the music are great makes me wish the band actually xisted and recorded these songs This is a well written and well structured novel dealing with Tasmania occultism and the lectric folk scene of the 60s Its fictional band The Rhymers are like a cross between Fairport Convention The Seekers and the Manson Family The characters are very vivid and you get a strong sense of what they look and talk likeThe weak point of the book is the rather sinister Darcy Burr who is clearly modelled on Koch s perception of Charles Manson one of his disciples is even called Pipsueakan obvious reference to Lynette Sueaky Fromme But it is never clear what Burr called Pipsueakan obvious reference to Lynette Sueaky Fromme But it is never clear what Burr real motives are Is he interested in piercing the veil of the sensory world like his master Clive Broderick Or is he merely desperate for the shallow pleasures of celebrity to the point where he will water his music down to please record company xecsAside from that ambiguity a great read highly recommende. As the group stood on the threshold of international stardom the darker side of nchantment started to assert its presence In a miasma of sexual jealousy magic mushrooms and apocalyptic mysticism the fragile collaboration that had shaped their music began to fall apa.

An interesting Australian novel This is the first novel I have read of this writer and I was truly impressed I found his descriptions of the folk music scene of the time really good It took me back to that time and took me back to that ra I hung out in that scene at that time so the setting resonated There is no uestion that Christopher Koch is a great Australian "Writer And That His Words Flow Across The Page S "and that his words flow across the page s great louence and the surety of a master of his craftThe Doubleman which was awarded the Miles Franklin prize in 1985 is surely a FINE EXAMPLE THE AUTHOR S TALENT AND YET I example the author s talent and yet I it ultimately to be not uite satisfyingIt didn t uite measure up to his later 1995 Miles Franklin award winner Highways To a War set in the killing fields of Vietnam and Cambodia which had me riveted from first to lastThe Doubleman contains lements of Koch s own life his upbringing in the post war streets of Hobart Tasmania and his career as a radio producer with Australia s national broadcasterThe novel begins with great promise introducing the narrator Richard Miller then a young boy overcoming the Grand Illusion: The Third Reich, the Paris Exposition, and the Cultural Seduction of France effects of a bout of polio which left him with a limp We soon meet on the cold and gloomy streets thenigmatic and mysterious Clive Broderick whose pivotal role in the novel is dealt with all to briefly We also uickly get to know Brian Brady Richard s cousin and the manipulative occasionally manic Darcy BurrBroderick teaches Brady and Burr to play guitar inculcating in them a desire to make their living from playing musicAs a young man Richard Miller leaves Tasmania first seeking work first in Melbourne and then in Sydney where the opportunities are greater He gains mployment as a producer of radio and television programs meets his future wife Katrin a post war refugee from Estonia and becomes re acuainted with Brady wife Katrin a post war refugee from Estonia and becomes re acuainted with Brady Burr from his youth who are now part of a reasonably successful bandAnd so is created Thomas and the Rymers featuring Brady Burr and Katrin produced by Richard and playing a new brand of lectric folk and fairy musicSwift success is inevitably followed by disintegration as ambition the influence of drugs and the othe. In the sleazy coffee bars of bohemian Sydney the Rymers were born For a generation they offered access to a world of illusion and Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild enthralment Marrying the ancestralnergies of immigrant ballads to the faeryworld of the European occult this lectric folk group seemed. ,
R baggage that comes with success and commercial realities take a harmful toll on all concernedKoch has managed to incorporate a number of themes into this intelligent novel including the music of the 1960s lements of the occult post war European migration to Australia and the coming of age tale of a young man guided by a beautiful but lonely older woman Deidre the trophy wife of a rich manDespite the coherence and intelligence and the inclusion
#of many brilliant #
many brilliant of writing the plot just didn t fully Electromyography for Experimentalists engage my attention all the way throughAfter a very promising start the middle section drifted a little and thending lacked coherence and satisfactionI had Forgetful of Their Sex: Female Sanctity and Society, ca. 500-1100 expected Broderick to play a much larger role in the narrative but he was relegated to a background influence he could have been such an interesting characterNotwithstanding my criticisms this is still a really good novel and definitely worth taking the time to read Winner of the Miles Franklin in 1985 and certainly an interesting choice The writing isxcellent and the story is fine but the presentation just feels too forced It now has a certain feel that it may have been of its time Richard Miller a polio ridden child of WW2 takes his nuiring mind and his actors needs to the bright lights of Melbourne and then Sydney and drags himself enuiring mind and his actors needs to the bright lights of Melbourne and then Sydney and drags himself the culturally changing world of the 1960 s The reader is constantly ngaged in the Doubleman thoughts of a couple of characters with Richard for me at least being the most important His thinking seems to lead from one direction to the other with a final burst of religious idealism that makes for a thoughtful Runaway Wedding ending though one that leaves the reader to decide what is happening The author is seemingly aware or been a fan of the acoustic andlectric folk upheavals of the 60 s and also aware of the influence of occultist Aleister Crowley For me this lay heavily on the story late and as much as I Wicked Loving Lies enjoyed the book it just seemed a slightly ham fisted attempt to make the underground scene in Sydney something it was not One historicalrror is that the band that is central to the story is an La heredera del mar electric folk band and their time is 19. Tombody the uesting religious spirit of a decade They had the nigmatic voice of an East European refugee the instrumental skills of a vagrant country singer the inspired arrangements of a self ducated Tasmanian mystic The universe was double They couldn't fail But. ,
