FREE READ ´ The Lazarus Project REVIEW The Lazarus Project Ca e fascinat de poveste şi cu ajutorul unei burse începe să lucreze la Proiectul Lazarus În ideea de a reface traseul personajului său de la Chişinău la Chicago Brik călătoreşte în Ucraina Moldova şi Bosnia Herţegovina călătorie cu puternice accente autobiografice în urma căreia îşi reevaluează propriul statut de imigrant With The Lazarus Project Aleksander Hemon establishes himself as a completely ignorable voice on the literary scene a product of hype over substance a lazy writer coasting on the unbelievable luck of winning a MacArthur grant also known as a genius grant Hemon might be a genius but he s definitely a bad writerThe story certainly has possibilities It simultaneously tells the story of a Jewish immigrant Lazarus murdered by a police chief in 1908 Chicago and subseuently made out to be an anarchist who was planning to assassinate the chief and a Bosnian born writer Brik living in Chicago who sets out to write a book about it Hemon happens to be a Bosnian born writer living in Chicago And the book s narrator Brik happens to have won a grant that allows him to undertake the Lazarus project It s obviously thinly veiled autobiography my guess is Hemon got tired of doing research on the real events surrounding Lazarus murder and decided to write a novel about a writer researching Lazarus murder But what really undercuts the book is that Hemon doesn t even bother to flesh out the character that s clearly based on himself There is no indication of why Brik is interested in Lazarus story He even mentions that the book once written will have no real impact on the world So why is he bothering Brik nevertheless runs into a childhood friend from Sarajevo Rora and the two go on a trip to Eastern Europe to research Lazarus origins coming to America after suffering a pogrom an anti Jewish riot in Kishinev then part of the Russian Empire Brik and Rora s trip is a look at how a writer and his photographer friend waste grant money than it is an insight into early 20th Century Russia There are vague connections made between Brik and Lazarus but they amount to nothing Rora a veteran of the war in Sarajevo during the mid 90s tells stories of his experiences And Brik deals with his dislocation as an immigrant leaving his home country before the war and marrying an American woman who may never truly understand him and vice versa All of this is littered haphazardly throughout the novel Never mind context background or even some kind of focal point for the narrative Where is this all going Who are these people We don t find out Brik is such a detached narrator he witnesses and partakes in some shocking acts of violence and then moves on as if they re nothing we can t even infer much either We just have to assume what this novel is about The New York Times book review which of course heaped great praise on The Lazarus Project tried to make the connection between Lazarus being railroaded as an anarchist and post 911 America Weak That s as lazy and half baked as an analogy as the book itself The 911 attacks or aftermath are never even mentioned in the novel and there s nothing about the narrator that would suggest he s interested in making such grand connections Again it s not at all clear why he cares about this Lazarus project There s nothing in the text to suggest why it s meaningful to him or anyone else though it certainly could have been I say the following not to be dramatic and with no malice intended but Hemon is a worthless hack and this book should not have been published I didn t hate it There were flashes of there being something there but not enough Not enough to be published Simple as that If I was an editor or a friend or a member of

point late in the novel Brik writes that Bosnia is home where my heart is Home is where the heart is That s what gets you a MacArthur grant these days Blatant sappy meaningless cliche This book like

The Lazarus Project

FREE READ ´ The Lazarus Project REVIEW The Lazarus Project Cu Proiectul Lazarus Hemon ne oferă un roman ce îmbină o atmosfera apăsătoare cu povestirea detaliată a unor stări când umorale când pline de umor Romanul este construit în jurul unui eveniment istoric ambiguu în dimineaţa zilei de 2 martie 1908 Lazarus Averbuch un tânăr evreu supravieţuior al pogromului din Chişinău se prezi It s hot as hell at the moment and I just got home after finishing this book while riding on the bus A dull eyed fat kid at the back of the bus kept tapping on his seat with drumsticks while his eually dull eyed fat though not eually fat girlfriend stared into space beside him The incessant arhythmic patter of the drumsticks drove me mad I wanted to break them over that kid s head That was in fact the least of what I wanted to do All of this has nothing to do with The Lazarus Project of course but it may say something about my present state of mind I began The Lazarus Project at the start of the year after reading Love and Obstacles also by Hemon I had previously read Hemon s The uestion of Bruno Both Love and Bruno are collections of short pieces Both contain marvelous writing I would even say at times the writing is brilliant except that I often felt a sense of detachment from it I m sure I was intended to feel a sense of detachment There s no uestioning Hemon s skill He s a very careful writer and he famously chooses words that most writers wouldn t This is usually attributed to the fact that English isn t his native language He s a keen observer and his work is filled with telling detail the objects in a room and the way they re arranged for instance Much of his work also deliberately fuses bits taken from Hemon s life or what the well informed reader knows of his life with protagonists who may or may not be Hemon s alter egos Meta is the term we use of late To be meta is to be clever I suppose and Hemon is without a doubt clever It s hard if not impossible to read him glibly This has all worked to a greater or lesser degree in the two story collections I ve read but The Lazarus Project Hemon s first published novel didn t work for me There are stories within stories within stories often involving characters we barely know or don t know at all except through the eyes of the characters telling the stories within stories within stories This is I m sure the point Life works that way I can hear a grad school type or perhaps Hemon himself telling me Literature works that way and what are stories anyway What s fact What s fiction What s history And so on uestions like these are for me at this stage a pain in the ass They re sophomoric unless the writer can find a way to enjoyably play with them but Hemon s honorable but overly cautious sense of craft of style all but precludes that kind of play Reading this book was like being lost in a hall of mirrors like opening a box that frustratingly contains another and so on My similes are trite aren t they I m displaying my lack of sophistication And you know what I don t give a fuck It s hot as hell and I can still hear that fat kid tapping on his seat with drumsticks all the way home from workI didn t and don t hate The Lazarus Project Undeniably there s value in it There are many wonderful bits But it s my prejudice that a good novel has to have breeziness for want of a better term interspersed with density and this one doesn t Of course the problem with a great many novels is that there s too much breeziness but too much density can be a problem too It s not a problem with short fiction density is the raison d etre of short fiction but with a novel I need or anyway want to breathe every once in a while Yes I ll climb another hill Sarge and I ll do it gladly if you let me take off this backpack and rest for a few minutes No Got to keep going Got to climb another hill Well okay I knew when I signed up for the army this is what I was in for but that doesn t mean I like it I think Hemon should stick with story collections but I m so burned out on him at the moment that I don t know that I ll ever get around to reading Nowhere Man his third collection It s his second chronologically So that s what I think but I m not going to rate this book or any other with stars I never did believe in rating works of art with stars or with thumbs up or thumbs down or any of the rest of that shit I did it reflexively in the past because I gathered that it was Goodreads protocol but I think it s reductive So thereI m going to take a bath I m going to take an aspirin I m
