"Between life and death, dreaming and waking, at the train stop beyond the end of the world is the city of Palimpsest. To get there is a miracle, a mystery, a gift, and a curse -- a voyage permitted only to those who've always believed there's another world than the one that meets the eye. Those fated to make the passage are marked forever by a map of that wondrous city tattooed on their flesh after a single orgasmic night." To this erotic and fantastic kingdom come Oleg, a New York locksmith; a beekeper, November; Ludovico, a binder of rare books; and a Japanese woman named Sei, each of whom has lost something important in their lives. -- Publisher info.… (mere)

    The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making af Catherynne M. Valente (Jannes)
    Jannes: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland was first concieved in Palimpsest as one of the protaginists' favourite book. Then it sort got a life of it's own, so to speak. Palimpsest is probably not for children, though.

There is too many levels of this book to talk about that it's difficult to do without any kind of reference. Which this book did give too many. I'm talking gibberish.

There is a very beautiful and very methaphorical language in use. I really love it. I love talking like this. It give something of an edge where you can say many thing without anyone understaqnding anything and by doing so you can make meaning of any word to your liking. Am I talking gibberish again?

The only little downside of this painting is that it is by nature very rythmic and quickly turns easily predictable. Really. It is very much like picture - first you don't understand anything, then you recongnise some lines, form a patterns, refference them with your memories and imagination, and then... you see something that is completely alien yet somehow close and yours. And here I think it's is better so stop talking about it. ( )

I found this book really confusing and didn't really get on with it at any point. I've always thought the title was fascinating, but the book just didn't work for me. ( )

Wat een worsteling was dat. Ik vind het werkelijk zonde dat een zo creatief verhaal zo slecht wordt neergezet. Totaal vervelende karakters, totaal verknipt plot en zo jammer van de soms pareltjes van zinnen die erin zitten. Ik kan dit boek werkelijk iedereen afraden. Het lijkt net of de schrijfster complete hoofdstukken heeft weggelaten en ik kan me gewoon niet genoeg in de wereld inleven omdat ik er gewoon te weinig van zie, ruik en hoor. En daarom begrijp ik de redenen van de personages ook niet, die daardoor weer des te minder interessant zijn.Niet dat het niet ingenieus in elkaar zit, maar dit boek is te druk bezig met uniek en creatief te zijn, terwijl het onderweg de leesbaarheid uit het oog verliest.

DNF - I read half and couldn't get into the story arc. The writing is beautiful and emotive. It's almost poetry vs. a novel. ( )

This is one of those books that will subtly but inevitably change your imagination forever. Poetically beautiful, stark and awesome in all the uses of that word. ( )

You need a passport to enter the improbable city Palimpsest and its magical mindscapes: a map of the city tattooed in black ink somewhere on your body. But to receive the mark, first you must have sex with someone who already bears one. ... Too obsessive and self-involved to hold universal appeal, with characters resembling visitors from somebody else's recurring dreamscape.

Look how the floor of heaven

Is thick inlaid with patines of bright gold:

There's not the smallest orb which thou behold'st

But in his motion like an angel sings

Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubins;

Such harmony is in immortal souls;

But, whilst this muddy vesture of decay

Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it.



--William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
