REVIEW Satin Island 107 REVIEW Satin Island Arachutist's death with which U is obsessed Add to that his longstanding obsession with South Pacific cargo cults and his developing inexplicable interest in oil spills As he begins to wonder if the Great Report might remain a shapeless oozing plasma his senses are startled awake by a dream of an apocalyptic cityscape In  Satin Island Tom McCarthy captures as only he can the way we experience our world our efforts to find meaning or just to stay awake and discern the narratives we think of as our lives. I give this book one star as a desperate cry for attention which I figure is okay since the book s blurb describes SI as an unnerving novel that promises to give us the first and last word on the world and suggests that in this book McCarthy captures as only he can the way we experience our world Take that entire rest of the worldOf course the blurb is in part a joke because the book s main character U is meant to write a report that is about everything that will name the world we live in for a rich business tycoon And my one star is in part a joke because it might also be a five star book How is this possible you ask Well I have two readings of this book In the first one star this is just another self indulgent piece of flatulence only yet cliched than the self indulgent flatulence that preceded it I had repeated flashbacks to the 90s here we have an anthropologist who apparently got his PhD without ever reading anything other than Levi Strauss compare a biologist who still believes in genetic determinism we have a lot of stuff about masks and performativity he uotes Deleuze and Badiou as if they were fresh meat he doesn t uote but uses concepts from Lacan the novel draws false analogies between constructedness and fictiveness IT BRINGS UP AND MISUES SCHRODINGER S POOR ABUSED CAT at this point my notes consist of the all caps exclamation REALLY DUDE it uotes sous les paves la plage like 90s theory it mistakes easily dissolved fallacies to produce apparent paradoxes if a skydiver dies because the cords to his parachute were cut when was he murdered Incipit pages of guff it acts as if writing was an act of oppression against the material world words pollute us just like oil pollutes oceans it frets about the way media and the internet have changed everything please ignore actually existing suffering and injustice it somehow manages to imply that Mallarme was a totalitarian it is a paeon in praise of trash and excrescence It does all this in what appears to be our new normal form juxtapositions of random images that are meant to produce meaning You may have experienced this as modernism But now for some reason it s freighted with all kinds of revolutionary freshness McCarthy s images fyi are Staten Island anthropology material culture oil spills the dead parachutist media images of crowds the Mallaremean book sex with a woman called Madison Leibniz pomo theory corporate speak Vanuatu the Shroud of Turin the internet and cancer It ends of course in New York Thank you Teju Cole Ben Lerner et al Now note sex with a woman called Madison because this where the book might get interesting though no reviewers have picked up on this The above list of cliches might have been produced by a random literary novelist who didn t bother to read anything and thinks he s being original But introducing a woman who for three uarters of the novel does literally nothing other than be inseminated is simply not done any and McCarthy knows this True at the end of the book Madison confronts U with the fairly trite observation that ideas aren t as important as you know actual suffering It is impossible to believe that McCarthy would willingly write a book so cliche ridden as to include the girl who s up for anything sexually and doesn t bother to you know talk or anything And this leads me to think that the book s best scene is also the key to unlocking its secret U imagines giving a speech at a conference where someone accuses him of aestheticizing of pollution U shouts down this dissenter and it s uite funny But imagine for a second a writer so brave so reckless that he would actually write a spot on parody of almost all of his time s most tiresome literary tropes That he would do so with almost no sign whatsoever that he intended the book to be taken as a parody except for this lone dissenting voice and the curious absence of one particular literary trope viz the excellent insistence that female characters be something other than sex toys Why I wonder did McCarthy miss this one even as he produced so much uncertainty media fluff internetism and definitively boring theoretical goop Could it be that McCarthy intentionally wrote a terrible novel including a reckless act of immorality ie objectifying the only woman in the novel as a sign that he knew it was a terrible novel Could it be that this is the best worst book ever written a marvelous literary polemic taking aim at everything horrible in high brow literary writing including the now our hero comes into contact with other people and doesn t have to think about them any conclusion I hope so because otherwise this is just an even worse version of what everyone else is doing The School in the Forest is obsessed Add to that his longstanding obsession with South Pacific cargo cults and his developing Woodstock inexplicable This Bright River interest MINECRAFT ADVENTURES in oil spills As he begins to wonder MINECRAFT ADVENTURES if the
