Mid read yesterday I realized why personal essays are so hit or miss for me they re innately me and them with very little room in the middle for complexity To write so completely in your voice from your perspective with your opinions kind of erases the complexities of everyone else around you It has too Your family your friends your lovers your enemies are all just characters in your life distant if still alive while you re the only one who is really real There are ways to get around this for sure You can interview or investigate You can radically empathize But when you re writing entirely from memory weaving together childhood experience sexual experience dreams and experiences with art as Trisha Low does here you can t help but write only about yourself Your memories are you and everyone else is just a part of youThat can be frustrating to read I don t know how much I care about just you just as I don t know how much you should care about just me To fully involve yourself in a singular story can be exhausting and I found Socialist Realism to be often exhausting It s still very much worth a read but I didn t find myself leaving the book essay feeling or learning anything newAnd that might be because Low also isn t necessarily learning or feeling or even growing Many of the passages frustratingly reminded me of myself as a writer she often makes a point before backtracking on the point before finally landing on a sort of I don t know and I can t know and I shouldn t pretend but isn t utopia worth it anyway She s smart and is constantly going back and forth before never truly landing on anythingAnd that s ok That s how the world works It s contradictory Marx talks a lot about this and I thought she might ve uoted him but alas another time and never ending and however truthful this may be it doesn t stop it from being any less frustratingI thought the strongest parts of the work were the moments of artistic analysis especially when it came to pop culture There s an especially strong passage about Jurassic Park and another on a WW2 film I found especially touching and one on One Direction that I won t even get into that I found myself laughing extremely hard at not sure if that was the point Low is perceptive when it comes to popular artHer recollection of personal experiences were mostly nice touches even if they were too broad I didn t really like and often skipped over the passages that recounted her dreams I found them too faux Freudian and often contradictory to the ways dreams actually work They seemed sort of like passages from an introductory fiction writing courseAnyways the writing was good and some parts were really perceptive and emotional but the parts didn t really add up to the whole Thematically it was kind of vague Enjoyed the One Direction scene though

My Review for the Chicago Review of Books It s no wonder as Wendy Brown points out that suffering has always been the barometer of authenticity and authenticity has in turn become proof of identity Your bleeding wound is the evidence that allows you to name yourself part of a group shared wounds have historically been the impetus for political solidarity Movements are brotherhoods of suffering that gather numbers and grow forming the bonds that are the basis of our politics our shared homes But for Brown this increased focus on the shared wound also yields the compulsive policing of membership in any given identity group It can become an unnecessary distraction It can prevent us from focusing our energies against the process of the wounding It stops us from detecting and addressing the structural and historical elements that harmed us in the first placeI think Brown is right when she points out how suffering as the basis of identity can curtail the possibilities for intersectional politicsIt means we may end up forming movements that are exclusionary to those who cannot sufficiently prove themselves part of our identity group often this comes at the expense of building a true coalition with significant numbers Svetlana Boym may warn us against letting emotional bonding outweigh our critical thinking but what if this moment of emotional bonding is exactly what we need for collective activism a platform from which critical thinking will be come relevant across difference After all when push comes to shove one of my leftist friends of color reminds me we might have in common with the white kid standing next to us masked up and holding an M18 smoke bomb than the Asian cop in riot gear or the Mexican border patrol agentBut the power in belonging in professing sameness is still sometimes the only power afforded to the oppressed and disenfranchised So I itch my wound
