summary å eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Peter Carey

free download His Illegal Self review His Illegal Self Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB When the boy was almost eight a woman stepped out of the elevator into the apartment on East Sixty second Street and he recognized her straightaway No one had told him to expect it That was pretty typical of growing up with Grandma Selkirk No one would dream of saying Here is your mother returned to you His Illegal Self is the story of Che raised in isolated privilege by his New York grandmother he is the precocious. Worthy of another Booker prizeNoFascinating with some literary meritYesCarey tells this tale mainly from two characters perspectives a boysongrandson Che or Jay and a motherkidnapperrevolutionary Dial or Anna Confused Try reading the novel The prose isn t necessarily dense but it often demands rereading phrases or sentences in order to interpret what exactly is happening in the novel Carey never uses uotation marks which surprisingly isn t the cause of the confusion He instead layers metaphors or deliberately gums up a sentence in order to obtain what I imagine he feels is a sense of art or what he believes embellishes his plot What is the plot In the Vietnam Era an eight year old boy being raised by his very rich grandmother lives on Park Avenue is delivered to andor kidnapped by a friend of the boy s mothera former employee of the grandmother s so that the boy may visit with his felonious underground biological mother The boy never actually reaches his intended destination however and spends most of the book in a socialist commune in Australia What happens beyond those facts is rather trivial and incidentalThroughout my reading of the book I kept waiting for the ah ha moment when I would realize why this author was twice awarded the Booker prize it never came I appreciated some of his sentences and the way that he handled a few pacing details ie years from now he would remember or when he was a baby he used to you get the point Initially I enjoyed being confused and felt that the sentence structure added to the suspense of the novel however two hundred pages into the book it felt like Carey was only filling in empty spaces between the action seuences of the plot and trying to meet some page uota which was very annoying I suspect his editor no longer line edits his too famous manuscripts I don t mean to be disrespectful but Peter Carey you should have a discussion with Joan Didion about her most recent work you both have a lot in common Next time please have a little consideration for the integrity of your work and don t fall back on your previous success Your readers will be oh so grateful
