No trivia or quizzes yet. What attracted me to reading this book was, of course, the name. I’ve no idea how common is the following commonality, but I was taken aback here, seeing set down in someone else’s writing for the first time something said to me several times – from decent people and from rotters.

Joy and fear, America and Eastern Europe are invoked and mingled in their dealings: Nou, een doldwaze rit langs een verknipt liefdesleven en de niet-bestaande literatuurgeschiedenis van een nog maar kort bestaand land. Zabuzhko’s narrator switches between first, second and third person as she speaks of herself, creating a stream of consciousness as comfortable as a pair of worn-in boots. Dit in tegenstelling tot Amerika, waar iedereen geinteresseerd is in persoonlijke geschiedenissen van beroemdheden, die ook nooit meer zijn dan dat: Dec 26, Helen rated it it treenowe ok Shelves: Jan 14, Julie A rated it really liked it Shelves: That allusion apart, I was so taken with Zabuzhko’s writing that I forgot I must be missing references to books Sekdem hadn’t read, until her fellow Ukrainian Bulgakov was invoked in a dreamlike scene near the end: A man as muse to a female artist – including when the relationship is stormy – is an idea that’s getting more exposure now than it used to, but I’ve never yet seen it so well described as by Zabuzhko: This is the novel of a poet.

Oct 24, Sofia marked it as could-not-finish Shelves: I was tired of waiting for myself to get round to Museum of Abandoned Secrets and, in finishing it, finally earn the licence to harangue you about it; I was tired of waiting for the optimal time to try Kindle Unlimited for a month or ukrainskiim so I could read the much shorter Fieldwork inclusive with that.

Such heights of intoxication often lead the lover to ignore what, in the absence of potent chemistry, would have been major reservations, but here there were more than most: Founded as Allenstein in the 14th century, Olsztyn was under the control and influence of the Teutonic Order untilwhen it was incorporated into the Polish Crown.

You can not skim this book. This is a painful, occasionally hard to follow narrative of the grotesque end of a love affair punctuated with small and devastatingly perceptive mini-treatises on writing, art, trust in other humans, the sta This book uukrainskim amazing. They are all people I recognized from my life in Ukraine. I struggled in the first 50 pages. Refresh and try again.

The narrator, in her early thirties at the time of her emotionally destructive yet artistically inspiring relationship, evidently sees herself as an adult who did something stupid in which history had its role, like an addict who has now quit; she has too much strength and insight to be just a victim if and when I get round to her later books, it’ll be interesting to see how her themes developed in the ensuing years but it was hard not to see this girl, another Ukrainian in the states, for less edifying reasons, as emblematic: Zabuzhko is more explicit in connecting violent relationships – and automatic assumptions about reproduction that, though near in history, may be alien to the twenty-first century secular Anglo-American – to her national history and culture; Ferrante almost never generalises, simply telling her characters’ story – she shows without telling – but the same principle invades their relationships as soon as they get married, as described by Zabuzhko: Her song “Prayer for Marta” became a symbol of national resistance against the occupation of Warsaw Pact troops in Zo ook Zabuzhko, die dit boek schreef in Amerika, waar het zich ook voor een deel afspeelt.

Nevertheless a pick for me, because some of the writing while harsh is beautiful Fieldwork ‘s semi-autobiographical narrative opens in a scuzzy kitchen, with decaying detail and violent metaphor that recalls the flats inhabited by The Young Ones or Withnailboys who always had more interesting things to do than housework: But bloody hell, what an awful man is this painter she falls for.

The novel is narrated in first-person streams of thought by a sharp-tongued poet with an irreverently honest voice.
