REVIEW Great House DOWNLOAD º Great House Nicole Krauss Ç 1 DOWNLOAD Alla scrivani dove l'importante non è la trama ma l'oggetto in apparenza inanimato in realtà custode di memorie dolori lutti e desideri A unire uesti frammenti la scrivania dei diciannove cassetti e le emozioni estrem. A common criticism of this book is that it s like four short stories than a novel It s true the four narratives with a little tinkering could stand alone as brilliant inspired stories There s a suspicion too that Nicole Krauss has difficulties writing novels Only two in ten years in stark contrast to someone like Murakami who knocks them out with what s becoming almost a facile and self harming ease The stories are connected by a mysterious writing desk reminiscent of Edmund de Waal s The Hare with Amber Eyes when it s a collection of Japanese netsuke that are used to follow bloodlines Though the desk vanishes for great stretches of the narrative it haunts the lives of every character in these pages Initially the desk is another victim of the Nazis It vanishes from the home of a Jewish family in Germany At the heart of the book is an antiues dealer who restores furniture looted by the Nazis to their Jewish owners So the desk becomes a symbol of both home and heritage and in Great House we see how it affects the lives of a truly fabulous cast of characters The characters are so vividly engaging that we miss them when they are gone which is probably my only misgiving about this book It s difficult to keep the bigger picture in mind because of the overwhelming sweep and luminosity of each new page It s a bit like falling in love when the new lover utterly eclipses all who have come before But it has to be said that there s brilliant writing in this book than any I ve read this year so on the whole a massive thumbs up from me And just wish Nicole Krauss was prolific دیدار فرهی و فتوحات آخرالزمانی just wish Nicole Krauss was prolific

REVIEW Great House

REVIEW Great House DOWNLOAD º Great House Nicole Krauss Ç 1 DOWNLOAD Atura di Pinochet Un giorno a venticinue anni di distanza dall'accaduto una ragazza forse la figlia del poeta rivendica la scrivania Da ui parte una miriade di racconti che si intreccinao tra loro e che ruotano intorno. I m a genre guy than a literature reader but I ve been trying to branch out lately I m glad I did because I ve read some amazing things that I probably wouldn t have tried otherwise However it only takes one book like this send me running back to the mystery or sci fi section for comfort It wasn t bad but it s just working so damn hard to be an important book that it really isn t much fun to read And maybe all books shouldn t be fun but they really shouldn t feel like this much work eitherThe book begins in the early 1970s in New York with a writer named Nadia losing all her furniture due to a break up with a boyfriend A mutual friend steers Nadia to Daniel Varsky a young Chilean poet who is getting ready to leave New York and has an apartment full of furniture he wants to loan out until he returns The most impressive item is a large desk Nadia takes the furniture and later hears that Daniel was tortured and killed in Chile during Pinochet s brutal rule of the countryYears pass and the one constant in Nadia s life is the desk However when a young woman claiming to be Daniel s daughter from a fling he had in Israel shows up Nadia immediately relinuishes the desk to her but soon regrets itSeveral other stories are told in parallel to Nadia s An Israeli man mourning the death of his wife pours his heart out in a story to the son he never understood The husband of a British writer discovers a shocking secret about his wife after her death and a young woman reflects on her love for a man who had an odd relationship with his sister and their father who is trying to recreate the study of his childhood home that was lost in the Holocaust Eventually the links between all of the stories emergeKrauss is one of those writers who impresses me technically but leaves me a bit cold despite writing something that was obviously going for the heart A big part of my problem is that that four of the characters are almost exactly the same Nadia the British writer the young woman in love and the Israeli son are introverted types who live their lives mainly through books and words to the point of ignoring everything else I especially found Nadia tiresome because this is a woman with every advantage who deliberately chooses her writing career over relationships yet whines about her own nature constantly It s hard to feel too sympathetic for someone who cut themselves off of their own free will and yet who is so fragile that the loss of a desk will plunge them into a depressive bout of writer s blockThe plot comes together in a nice web of cause and effect but overall this book felt like getting stuck in a conversation with someone who obviously wants to be doing something else but then proceeds to tell you about everything they ve talked about with their psychiatrist

REVIEW Great House DOWNLOAD º Great House Nicole Krauss Ç 1 DOWNLOAD Un giorno di inverno del 1972 un giovane poeta cileno lascia i suoi mobili tra cui una massiccia scrivania con diciannove cassetti a una scrittrice newyorchese Lui tornerà in Cile dove sparirà nelle carceri della ditt. So I say again writing a book of short stories fitting them together Tetris like and calling it a novel DOES NOT MAKE YOUR BOOK A NOVEL Also telling your publisher to put a novel on the cover after the title DOES NOT MAKE YOUR BOOK A NOVEL If you write a collection of short stories IT IS OK TO CALL IT A COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES Because you are Nicole Krauss especially because you will probably STILL BE NOMINATED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD EDIT But YOU WON T WIN thankfully Lord of Misrule will winThis is a very well written book throughout meaning sentence by sentence Nicole Krauss can string words together effortlessly can create haunting and memorable imagery through evocative metaphors you d never dream of But all those sentences didn t add up to much of anything for me It definitely feels like the form is what interests her but the Big Idea interconnected stories that are all related to the perhaps malovelent presence of an imposing desk its many tiny drawers standing in for the melodramatic seekrits and secret pains of its many owners obscures the charactersIt sounds interesting but it isn t It s monotonous and confusing Puzzling out the structure is a pain in the neck because the stories each with a different narrator all sound the same whether the speaker is a middle aged American woman or an elderly male Hungarian Jew Everyone mopes about the WEIGHT OF MEMORY this was probably explained to me on the jacket copy because I honestly had a hard enough time concentrating on the plot which is symbolized by furniture and also by how they constantly talk about their horrible memories I don t have to like the characters but not a one of them had much of a spark which made reading about them distasteful AND dullI can t say I m surprised this was nominated for the National Book Award but I am disappointed because I think if it wins a lot of extra people are going to read it and a lot of them aren t going to like it And I read a lot of other books this year books that weren t nominated that I think would benefit from the extra attention and might also be a lot less likely to alienate readers For all of the depth of talent on display in the prose this is an oddly lifeless book and I don t see it connecting with most readers even serious readersIn conclusion I would not recommend Great House A Collection of Stories and I certainly don t recommend Great House A Novel
