    Paradis af Toni Morrison (tangentialine)
    tangentialine: I love how the structure is similar, but also how in both books there is attention to some key characters and a focus on racial tension and the heritage of the past. And the language is breathtakingly gorgeous in both books.

This story is an interplay of generations in interconnecting circles, presented in a kaleidoscope fashion of conflicting cultures and individual perceptions — those of prejudices, zealots, scoundrels, weirdness, well-meaning, and naïveté — with truths waiting in the wings to come out. Along the way are insights into the deceptiveness of human subjectivity, both uplifting and woeful. Altogether, the reading experience is paradoxical escapism into the reality of the conflicted human condition.

Maybe I'm sensitive to the human condition context, but I found Louise Erdrich's writing herein oddly compelling. ( )

En 1911, un terrible crimen cambia la vida de varias familias residentes en Pluto (Dakota del Norte) y sus alrededores, una ciudad de población blanca en la frontera oeste de una reserva de indios chippewa. Los años pasan y los descendientes de los asesinos y de las victimas se mezclan, casándose. Las nuevas generaciones con cruce de sangre crecen ignorando el pasado, pero poco a poco descubren que sus pasiones, destinos y secretos están irrevocablemente marcados por una historia de violencia e injusticia.

I didn't love this one as much as some of her other stuff, but it was good. I feel like if I had been able to read it in one or two sittings, it would have really dazzled me, but because of how its various threads through history are sort of braided together, I found myself losing nuance/details between reading sessions, so at times it felt disjointed, though I think it actually probably isn't disjointed. This is the second book in a row I've read of Erdrich's in which there's sort of a gotcha or surprise at the end, and I don't think I love that trend, though it wasn't so terrible. It's more of a 3 or 3.5 for me, really, but I think that's partially because I read it in a few fits and starts, and it's actually a better book than how I received it. The prose is really great as always with Erdrich in my experience so far. ( )

An interesting saga with a slow start that picks up steam towards the end. ( )

It took a while to understand the back-and-forth of time of the book, but loved how it all came together in the end. ( )

Writing in prose that combines the magical sleight of hand of Gabriel García Márquez with the earthy, American rhythms of Faulkner, Ms. Erdrich traces the connections between these characters and their many friends and relatives with sympathy, humor and the unsentimental ardor of a writer who sees that the tragedy and comedy in her people’s lives are ineluctably commingled. Whereas some of her recent novels, like “Four Souls” (2004), have suffered from predictability and contrivance, her storytelling here is supple and assured, easily navigating the wavering line between a recognizable, psychological world and the more arcane world of legend and fable. . . .

Nothing that happens, nothing, is not connected here by blood.
But of course the entire reservation is rife with conflicting passions. We can't seem to keep our hands off one another, it is true, and every attempt to foil our lusts through laws and religious dictus seems bound instead to excite transgression.
What men call adventures usually consist of the stoical endurance of appalling daily misery.
What doesn't happen in the heat of things? Someone has seized the moment to act on their own biases. That's it. Or history. Sometimes it is history.
I wrote down as much of Mooshum's story as I could remember, and then the relatives of everyone I knew--parents, grandparents, way on back in time. I traced the blood history of the murders through my classmates and friends until I could draw out elaborate spider webs of lines and intersecting circles. I drew in pencil. There were a few people, one of them being Corwin Peace, whose chart was so complicated that I erased parts of it until I wore right through the paper. Still, I could not erase the questions underneath, and Mooshum was no help.
