    (1004 AUTHOR Ben Lerner) PDF ↠ Ben Lerner The story is very aware of itself It's the kind of story that looks in the mirror all day rearranging its artfully disheveled bangs I've called it a story twice but it's really of an exercise Kind of like spending an hour on a stationary bike Afterwards you feel like you've accomplished something but you're still in the same exact place

A book to come back to It is certainly not for everyone and I ll recommend it gingerly than many books that I ve liked less I ll try to go into why here1004 a great reference has something of Wallace in how it takes pleasure in its own form something of Sebald in its meandering something of Vonnegut oddly enough in its looping something of Roth in its pseudo memoirishness It is than anything else a great New York novel and I felt envy while reading it It does surpass LEAVING THE ATOCHA STATION which is an excellent book in its own right He copies the best trick of STATION to great effect here the most exciting memorable classically dramatic parts of the book are stories that the narrator is told or tells there is one with his father that I particularly loved This provides steady splashes of tension the one thing the main action of the book lacks in There are anxiety provoking things going on but you never really worry You marvel at the form the intelligence of the plotThere are problems that are problems for me Too many octopuses octopi too much interpolation of poetry I believe that Lerner is a good poet but I know that he is a great prose writer And the book drags when the poetry comes in two art history sections when one would suffice the one on destroyed art is fabulous the one on Judd is meh why do so many writers struggle when they turn to art Knausgaard does too a sluggish start The book really picks up in the beginning of Chapter Two when the structure became apparent and some of the excesses of Chapter One turned brilliantThere are problems that aren t problems for me The classics really Nothing happens a privileged white dude complains a lot meta fiction for the sake of meta fiction I anticipate backlash I ve already heard backlash But there s too much gorgeous writing and uniue thought here to tune out
