ELibro / PDF (Beatlebone) Autor Kevin Barry
I absolutely loved City of Bohane with its tensions character and humour illuminated by beautiful The Marine's E-Mail Order Bride prose andoetic but true speech rhythmsWith Beatlebone it s as if the author thinks we ll love his writing style so much that we don t really need anything else It didn t work for me Yes there is beautiful Dervishes and Islam in Bosnia: Sufi Dimensions to the Formation of Bosnian Muslim Society prose andoetic but true speech but it wasn t enough I ve seen this book described as a comedy but it didn t make me laugh started on audio switched over to rint it didn t helpAt first blush this was merely irritating in the way that Adele is irritating when singing about when we were young when She Is Twenty Freaking Five Most Of is twenty freaking five Most of time I can forget that she is a hyperbolically successful child and focus on her vocals and turns of hrase But when every station of the radio A New Kind of Public: Community, Solidarity, and Political Economy in New Deal Cinema, 1935-1948 plays her songs every 30 minutes and she must remind us that she is SO OLD and can NEVER REGAIN SO MUCH in every new single I start wanting someone to slap her And the way exhausted world weary haunted John Lennon reads here he should be wellast his rime until one realizes he s thirty seven and I can t help it the eye rolls are happening And yes depression is real and IMPORTANT
bl The year 1978 was not a creatively rewarding one for John Lennon yes THAT John The year 1978 was not a creatively rewarding one for John Lennon yes THAT John He spent most of his time in America laying househusband and nursemaid to his young son Sean After undergoing Hexe primal scream therapy with Arthur Janov he viewed himself as unburdenedyet he was also creatively blockedThis is the John Lennon we meet in Kevin Barry s audacious and often brilliant new novel Beatlebone At the start of the novel he has escaped from the heart of New York City to the west coast of Ireland where he owns yes really a tiny island that the locals have dubbed Beatle Island But anyone who expects a straight narrative about a complex and troubled musician has another thing in store The true theme of Beatlebone is the heavy costs and rewards of creativity This fictional John says What it s about It s about what you ve got tout yourself through to make anything worthwhile It s about going to the dark Eumenes of Cardia: A Greek Among Macedonians places and using what you find there Kevin Barry is like a magician channeling John Lennon displaying him as a searchingrofane and lost soul who must get to his own island literally and figuratively He must virtually enclose himself in a cave of dead bones where he has all the words and all of its noise and all of its sual. John Lennon compró una isla en Irlanda Ésta es la historia del fascinante viaje ue hizo diez años después The Battle of Borodino: Napoleon Against Kutuzov para encontrar la islaero sobre todo Religion in the Ancient Greek City para encontrarse a sí mismo Huyendo de larensa Lennon intenta calmar el espíritu y superar así los fantasmas ue lo ersiguen y le.
REVIEW BeatlebonePrietor is alive with with tics and nervy flutters as if there are small desperate birds trapped beneath the skin And this craggy frontier that is famed for its feral beauty becomes the uneasy backdrop to an unravelling mind Imagine the near erpetual assault of rain on a cracked windowpane down at the shivery end of that dripping boreen a country laneway or a little road dank and sodden between the whitethorn and the haw laces usually La Partera: Story of a Midwife possessed in the Irish mythos by savage melancholy with the veggieatch and the hedgerow wine and the rising damp and the nitty children and the freaky dogs cowering in the yard as the wind shudders their skinny flanks and the vast hysterical skies never light for long never dark for long Around two thirds of the way through Beatlebone takes an abrupt change of direction Barry begins to describe his own visit to Clew Bay while researching the story It s a risky manoeuvre uite jarring at first But I became intrigued by it as Lennon and Barry s journeys begin to coalesce and it really extends the impact of the novel I suppose this interjection is one of the reasons that the book won the Goldsmiths Prize which rewards experimental fictionIt s a brave story to write Little is really known about John Lennon at this time in his life and details of his Irish visits are thin on the ground But Barry takes us on a utterly convincing journey inside this icon s head and we begin to understand the loneliness and misery that fame

L He must look closely to see the tiny details order to capture the larger scope Throughout this book there are wisps echoes really of words that Beatles fans will associate with some of John s and other musicians songs but they are so beautifully intertwined with the narrative that lose attention for one second and you ll miss themThe book was a solid 5 star but here is where it rose to 6 stars Kevin Barry interjects his own search for creativity in the narrative As the novel temporarily shifts from fiction to memoir the author writes what s left to us is mediated and it can only be built up again in gimcrack reconstructions with scenic fa ade but if we can get the voices right the fiction may hold for a while at least When he surrenders the spotlight to John it s impossible not to view him in a whole different light understanding the Zheng Guogu pains that the author has taken to get it right This is an amazing book that will make myersonal Top Ten list Having said that it s not for everyone certainly not for those who are sueamish about rofuse rofanity nor those who are not willing to journey on a kind of magical mystery tour And oh yes the number 9 Frںuhzeit Des Ostslaventums playsrominently including the division into 9 chapters Read it and be awed People go strange out here John You wouldn t be the first and you wouldn t be the last This wild free wheeling tale imagines a visit by John Lennon to Dorinish island Forbidden Knowledge pictured above off the west coast of Ireland in 1978 Haunted by his own demonsarticularly the Whose Life Is It Anyway?: Living through your 20s on your own terms premature death of his mother Julia he intends to spend three days by himself and scream his fucking lungs out Things don t go exactly tolan For one thing John can t remember which one of the 365 islands in the bay belongs to him And the ack of hungry reporters on his tail are not helping With the assistance of local fixer Cornelius O Grady he might just reach his destination but it will involve a few diversions and disguises along the wayKevin Barry does a terrific job of depicting Lennon s fragile state overwhelmed with despair and
