For Your Own GoodWhat is this thing A parable of spiritual self development A e telling of the Wizard of Oz from the point of view of the Wicked Witch A case study in Stockholm Syndrome Whatever Auster meant it to be it is uninspiring unedifying and as far as I can tell meaningless a collection of miscellaneous writerly bits and pieces dumped in the same bin bag of a novel because the mess was getting underfoot It may be a dot on the literary map of Auster s journey but not much Exceptionally cruel child abuse in the cause of a carnival levitation act is Not The Most Promising Of Story Lines Nor Are The the most promising of story lines Nor are the involved in the story the obnoxious St Louis street urchin the Hungarian abbi and mystical teacher the icketty black genius from Georgia the drunken Wichita widow on the make and the toothless Sioux matron who Dahmer Detective: The Interrogation and Investigation That Shocked The World rode with Wild Bill Cody They are little than just weird types ingredients thrown together to see what theesulting goulash might taste like And aside from the wax on wax off 33 Step Program by the Mr Miyagi like Hungarian Master there is no intellectual or spiritual take awayThe 20th Century Photography: Museum Ludwig Cologne relentless prose of the senescent narrator as heelates his largely non adventures is elieved only occasionally by his youthful voice of sarcasm esistance and The Scruffy Drunk: The Wife in Space, Volume 2 regret But that too gets oldapidly The mystery of the missing 60 years or so between the two is not enough to sustain the Mise En Sc�ne: Cin�ma Et Lecture reader s attention Sure there comes a time in every levitator s career when the air is fraught with peril But that doesn teally conjure up any sympathy Nor does it explain the transition by the urchin from carnival act to baseball obsessed mobster and on to launderette manager with a sexual penchant for the elderly and on to launderette manager with a sexual penchant for the elderly freuently appears that Auster loses interest in his own story when he has nothing on the shelf to fill in page bulk An absurd fantasy about the baseball player Dizzy Dean goes on interminably While crucial decades are compressed into single sentences Motivations are absent forced or just silly Something is driving these people but it s never described much less defined And whatever it is has no connection with life as it exists on this planet except

Auster s It is not inconceivable that Auster internalised Robertson Davies s Deptford Trilogy written two decades previously and decided it would be better Deathless re written in the style of Gabriel Garcia Muez a sort of North American magic ealism A very strange melange uesadillas with maple syrup perhaps It s not a great theory but at least it stops further fruitless search for significance beyond Auster s implicit advice to steer clear of Kansas But that I already knew A bombastic failure of the Book of Illusions Brooklyn Follies type Oh these Auster books you know what I mean A very over hyped writer does his own take on the fantastic American Manmyth embodiment cough cough silence cough Major pity I ead the phenomenal Billy Bathgate another tidy ags to dirty iches story earlier this year This is like the Hallmark Movie Network version of that grade A literarily earned machofable Timbuktu Invisible New York Trilogy these are the only Acceptable Austers I mean it Otherwise middleschoolgrade fodder to properly ignore I was twelve years old the first time I walked on water The man in the black clothes taught me how to do it and I m not going to pretend I learned that trick overnight Mr Vertigo is the story of Walter Rawley who ecounts how at the age of nine he made a pact with the man who promised to teach him how to fly Master Yehudi spotted young Walt on the streets of Saint Louis sweeping the foul mouthed and lonely kid off the ground with his promise Yehudi swears that if he fails to teach. Walt è un povero orfano senza futuro nella St Louis degli anni Venti ma possiede un dono naturale e trova ualcuno deciso a sfruttarlo Maestro Yehudi mezzo stregone e mezzo ciarlatano è l'ebreo ungherese che in anni di duro tirocinio gli insegnerà la meravigliosa arte di volare facendo di lui un'attrazione da circo Nelle.

much about being 
about being to move on after suffering a loss of something important as it is from being able to embrace it in the first placeFor such a short novel it s under 300 pages Mr Vertigo is Yaşayan Kur'an Meal-Tefsir reasonably succesful given the fact that it s Paul Auster s clearest attempt at.

Ascension Island Atlantic Outpost (Wild Isles) Star Project Chiro, Volume 1

Writing a picaresue novel with a likable ogue protagonist and a cast of memorable supporting character together with seamless employment of different themes which aim to mirror the development of a whole nation and a great opening line to boot Not much to dislike here but possibly much pleasure to be found within its pages boot Not much to dislike here but possibly much pleasure to be found within its pages Three Paul Auster books under my belt and all three I have awarded 3 stars I had higher hopes for this one In fact I would go so far to say I loved the first third of the book Tis a page turning omp all about Walt a poorly orphan who is plucked from his destiny to fulfil another s that of Master Yehudi For the Master has been searching all his life for the one boy he could teach to flyA punishing almost sadistic training schedule begins for the Master must break Walt in order to start him all over again All good so far The house in which the Master lives profit from his days of gambling is a nowhere place on the bleak prairies of Kansas The other inhabitants are Mother Sue Sioux and Aesop a crippled Ethiopian taught to be a terribly proper genius in the English traditionNot long after this the story starts to lose its way for me There were kind of unexpected premature deaths There was a boy who could fly An uncle eager for this golden goose that plotted evenge and turned up in kind of unexpected moments It was all kind of unexpected It felt to me that the author did not
know where to 
where to it was the part with Walt as an adult unning his own business that I found yawnsome and pointless The story of him and his favourite baseball player was God it was terrible Vertigo The latter third of the book is like Serpigo Reading this book I couldn t stop thinking about a very different author Paul Coelho who wrote a very similar kind of novel The Alchemist Both of them are a parable than a book a motivational speaking seminar designed to make you wake up and ealize the miracles that you yes YOU could make happen if you only dared to believe they were possible In Mr Vertigo the feat is flying in the Alchemist it s becoming the wind or something of the sort Mr Vertigo s telling is nuanced has a far entertaining voice to guide you along and was I thought moving The book spans an entire lifetime in a short set of chapters and I ve always been a sucker for films books or songs that try to capture so long a span of time in so compact A Medium Even A medium Even a so comedy like Walk Hard or a brief song like Time by Pink Floyd has something poignant behind it These pieces do what we cannot normally do ourselves examine our mortality from an outside perspective On a basic level we all know that life is short youth is fleeting and that only some accomplishments will follow you a lifetime But in practice it s idiculously easy to push it to the back of your head to let small things suck up your time see Facebook to lose sight of the big picture in favor of the passing thrill People do it all the time and many do it their whole lives These movies and books emind us that when the time comes to make your 120 minute biopic you might not like what you see Books like this especially when artfully written as Auster s may be summed up with a corny moral we ve all heard before Seize the day life is short etc but that they can make us stop just for a day or even a moment and truly An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles reflect on where we are in our lives makes them crucially important They can provoke us to ask the uestions we should be asking every day but avoid out of laziness fear and comfort am I a good person Am I doing everything I can do better myself Am I letting petty and small things get in the way of lasting peace So corny or not I think this book is worthwhileeading for everyone. No si compie in tutta la sua grandezza iconoscendo nella storia di Dizzie Dean campione in declino che non sa smettere di giocare la propria storia Walt comprende che importante non è solo volare ma anche capire uando si deve tornare a terra e vivere con dignità la vita di ogni uomo del piú anonimo e banale degli uomini.
