    MOBI babyandbeyondshow.co.uk Ð Outline PDF/EPUB à outline book, Outline MOBIDamn you Rachel Cusk This book was absolutely infuriating As I was reading it I kept telling myself that I hated it And so I burned through it in a a little than 24 hours It bears little resemblance to any other novel I've ever read The characters seem vague and unformed but they come through with periodic startling observations about life and human

    MOBI babyandbeyondshow.co.uk Ð Outline PDF/EPUB à outline book, Outline MOBIIn Outline a writer named Faye perhaps not unlike Rachel Cusk herself travels to Athens for a few days to lead a writing workshop Along the way she engages in conversations with several people her seatmate on the plane other teachers and students in the workshop friends she meets up with friends those friends have brought along et cetera Sometimes Faye listens to these people without comment sometimes she challenges them sometimes she reveals something about herself That's all The novel is a collection of conversationsIn the wrong hands this could be a disastrous idea for a book but in the hands of a good writer what could be interesting? In fact I wouldn't mind seeing other good writers tackle this same idea using their own experiences and travels This book would be very different if written by say Nick Hornby or Margaret Atwood In this particular case I felt like I became the narrator It was me on the plane on the boat having conversatio

    MOBI babyandbeyondshow.co.uk Ð Outline PDF/EPUB à outline book, Outline MOBIWhile I'm reading a book I'm often aware that my perception of time gets a little warped because story time can run much faster than the time it takes to read it This imbalance can leave me a bit disoriented when I lay the book down and adjust to the fact that it's still the same day as when I began reading though years may have gone by for the characters among whom I've spent the last hour or two While reading this book on the other hand real time passed much faster than story time And story time moved so very slowly that my reading pace slowed down too; I'd freuently realise that I'd been on the same page for a long time that I was in a sort of suspended mode not reading hardly thinking uite numbed The image of a Salvador Dali painting came to mind several times while in that suspended mode the one wh

    MOBI babyandbeyondshow.co.uk Ð Outline PDF/EPUB à outline book, Outline MOBIStaggeringly uniue in its simplicity Essentially a series of interactions over a week long trip to Greece where the lead is teaching a writing class the characters are so rich yet so contained and the lead's character was at once the most interesting and the most invisible I dug through the the text for information about her frustrated and thrilled that her interlocutors even a random stranger from an airplane knew about her life's story than we did But by the end I somehow felt that I knew her I could predict how she would respond Realness is an overused idea but the character began to feel truly human I especially loved the writing classroom scenes which were so stripped out of things that I associate with great literature and yet were so much than a stage play A series of interwoven microfictions perhapsCusk's p

    MOBI babyandbeyondshow.co.uk Ð Outline PDF/EPUB à outline book, Outline MOBIAlthough I've read this in English I thought that the title for the Spanish translation suited the novel better then the original Contraluz that translates literally as 'backlighting' but whose meaning is something like 'against the light' fitted better this novel in which an English woman who travels to Athens to teach writing to Greek pupils leaves behind a shaded world to face her life and herself against the Aegean sunThis novel is loaded with material Gender is prominent women women and children women and men women and marriage women and a profession And with gender comes identity And with identity representation And with representation writing For even if the novel a couple of times uestions the need for structures what strings everything together is the phenomenon of story telling The narrator's role is that of an amanuensis who registers all the conversations she has during her writing trip the man on the plane the man on the boa
