    (KINDLE) Londonstani by Gautam Malkani This debut novel by financial journalist Malkani is well worth reading and deserves much respect for its brilliant recreation of a particular form of urban patois Set in Hounslow in West London adjacent to Heathrow Airport it revolves around four South Asian teenagers who style themselves as hard rudeboys Or rather three rudeboys and one new hanger on who narrates the tale The story or less concern the antics of the foursome as they crui

Londonstani Summary Ø PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Summary Londonstani Londonistan to debiut który stał się sensacją Targów Książki we Frankfurcie w 2005 roku W Wielkiej Brytanii powieść ukazała się wiosną 2006 roku i błyskawicznie stała się bestsellerem Prawa do przekładu nabyły wydawnictwa z kilkunastu krajów Mieszkający w Londynie dziewiętnastoletni Jas bohater powieści i jednocześnie jej narrator przyłącza się do gangu rówieśników Hadrjita Raviego i Amita którzy przemoc uważają za manifestację odrębności Najbrutalniejszy jest sikh Hardjit konfliktowy przywódca grupy Pogardza tymi kt?. Hmmm Just finished the book and I m pretty sure I don t like the ending but I m not 100% sure Is it a lazy trick or is it an intriguing way to challenge authenticity I mean I thought the whole middle class rudebwoy desi male angst thing was semi interesting althought I get tired of the insecure male identity leads to misogynistic expression of guarded love or affection for woman or bitch vein of writing because frankly I m a woman and I get it and I think it s stupid I mean constipated male emotions not the writingFrom watching his interviews I know that one of the themes of the book is to challenge authenticity and perception That s obvious considering the amount of time these big house living beemer driving versace wearing desi rudeboys spend posin their masculinity and shit and glinting their communal tensions and uoting Ice Cube and 50 Cent an area that could be talked about and talking about sex But I feel that the ending was so strange because then so much of the story becomes a proxy for white shame and a discussion of white identity And then the narrative elides the very impact that a white body would have on the authenticity of narratives of the brown characters in the first place I mean would Jason really be ushered into Arun s family beatdown Which makes it seem that his whiteness doesn t matter OR does his marginality give him access Then his whiteness does matter That is if it s whiteness we re talking about But who really knows Which then kind of makes his point about authenticity relevant in that the obsessing reader might end up wondering what the race of the narrator is so that we can readjust all the associations that we made with signifiers throughout the book In any case there are interesting uestions to ask about what Jason as a narrative observer to this particular desi community would be privy to accepted into allowed to see And if he d really get itThe other uestion is even if we are uestioning these so called signifiers or are inferring meaning into shit that isn t really in the text what does it prove Does it prove that as readers we re all dumb and racist Or does it mean that there s a value to those signifiers in the first place depending on who s reading it that lose meaning when the entire narrative is pulled out from under you Shady innit BTW unlike other reviewers I loved the language in the book cause I actually had to read the first chapters out loud and alone in Madonna s fake brit accent to get it at first It takes you away from dominant cultural modes of middle class language and writing even if it is grounded in middle class desi boys posin and it changes your experience as a reader I think the debates on the net over the language of the book are really telling of the biases of reading audiences and how readers think stories should be represented And there were some fuckin brilliant scenes with desi families and pots being thrown and moms goin crazy and dad s being passive and children feeling unheard and all feeling unappreciated that I think he hit dead on Loved reading his dialogue Damn because of that ending now I gotta to read this whole book all over again
