review The Brooklyn Follies 100 Hkene ottaa häntä vastuulleen semminkin kun tyttö ei suostu puhua pukahtamaan sanaakaan He yrittävät tytön muiden sukulaisten hoiviin mutta matkasta sukeutuukin odottamattomien sattumusten taival Ja sillä aikaa Harry järjestää heille kaikkien aikojen yllätyksenNathanin ympärille kertyy vähitellen monilukuinen rakastava perhe Sen sijaan että hänestä olisi tullut hiljainen kaupunkierakko hän on elämässä kiinni tiukemmin kuin koskaan enn. I d like to give this book 45 stars but goodreadscom fails to strive for precision I really really really enjoyed this book The voice and tone of it is so warm and an inviting I loved every character in the book not so much for their personalities but rather that Auster portrays each one with so much sensitivity and kindness There is no judgement or scorn in his approach to these people despite their follies There isn t much of a story here Really for me the story occurs on the last page when the events of the book are placed in a context larger than the book itself It makes everything one just read seem less important and important at the same time Lately I have been wondering how I should approach life I mean should one take life seriously or should we just coast do what s good in the moment And if I take life seriously does that cover investing in human beings or does it just mean being an adult being responsible learning to stand alone I don t know what the answer is but this book made me think about it It would seem that Auster falls on the side of investing in human beings and not taking life too seriously I feel as if he is asking us to put a strong value on retreat giving in the victory in flat out survival Every character in the novel is raising some kind of white flag The characters are dashed ephemeral hopes dissolved into concrete daily grinds and the beauty Auster is trying to portray for us is the gentle pleasure of being ok with defeat It is almost as if he wants us to revel in surrender He shows us that there are rich intimate spaces and deeper connections perhaps in a world that is constructed around commiseration than the one we are used to the one in which we lie about our aspirations hide our failures and strive to make something of ourselves I wonder how plausible this world is it does sound and feel very rich and comfortingEveryone fails and when those around us fail we somehow tend to love them The old adage that flaws and imperfections are what make each person uniue and beautiful in his or her own ways is reflected wonderfully in this book Somehow Auster is asking us to skip that whole part in between failure and others loving us where we feel shame embarrassment and pain in the face of our missteps We have so much to learn from our wrong turns and so much to take in during each fall that we might as well get over ourselves and open up to the world and people around us There is a place that is referred to often in the book called the hotel existence a place where one can escape the bullshit and miserable aspects of the world we live in a place where one can retreat to a life less entangled in the morass of the planet The people in the book never get there in a physical sense but it becomes clear to me that Auster means to say that the hotel existence is bullshit in and of itself There is no true escape from the bullshit Life is fucked It just is There isn t escape there is only the white flag It was an awesome book
