De små ting af Paul Harding

  1. 10
    Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky af David Connerley Nahm (HeathMochaFrost)
    HeathMochaFrost: I just finished Ancient Oceans, and the writing kept reminding me of Tinkers. The characters, location, situations, all of these are different, but many readers who enjoyed the writing style of Tinkers might like this one as well. It's from a small press so it's harder to find, but it's certainly worth it.… (mere)

    Evening af Susan Minot (novelcommentary)
    novelcommentary: Both begin with a dying protagonist who clings to a memory of the past. In Minot's book, it has to do with an affair that may have been her true love.

Depressingly profound and/but a chore to get through. Not as bad as Ethan Frome but close. ( )

Decent story but a bit confusing at times.
And then it just ends. ( )

A while ago I decided to read books which have recently won important literary awards, hoping it'd introduce me to some interesting contemporary authors. So far they've all been awful.

This book in particular felt very pretentious - like its main purpose was to have as much literary merit as possible. There's no real plot, the narrative is confusing and all over the place, the characters are boring and the writing is as flowery as they come. Tinkers has been praised for its "poetic" prose and unconvential writing style, and while I understand some might find Harding's writing intellectual, it mostly comes across as an attempt to impress the reader. Were the long-winded descriptions of nature necessary? What did the excerpts from a (fictional?) Horologist book add to the story, besides interrupting the flow of the book? Why was there such little punctuation?

This book requires a lot of concentration, despite its density, and I was hoping it'd be worth the effort, but it wasn't. Unless you're looking for a book to put you to sleep, this isn't worth reading. ( )

"There are few perfect debut American novels. Walter Percy's The Moviegoer and Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird come to mind. So does Marilynne Robinson's Housekeeping. To this list ought to be added Paul Harding's devastating first book, Tinkers, the story of a dying man drifting back in time to his hardscrabble New England childhood, growing up the son of his clock-making father. Harding has written a masterpiece around the truism that all of us, even surrounded by family, die alone."
 
The occasional overwriting, the looping narrative, and the almost defiant lack of plot made this a hard book to sell to publishers. An array of editors at major houses rejected the novel, no doubt afraid it would never sell. It apparently sat for several years in the writer's desk. Then an obscure house, the Bellevue Literary Press, published it to such little fanfare that the New York Times (like most papers) ignored it completely. Then, miracle of miracles, it won the Pulitzer.

Among the many triumphs of this novel, Harding enables a reader to look at the world differently, without the things that normally encumber experience. Tinkers is a considerable achievement.
tilføjet af _eskarina | RedigerThe Telegraph, Peter Scott (Aug 18, 2010)
 
Its prose is complex, sometimes convoluted, but at its best suffused with brilliantly realised imagery and a reminder of how rich the written language can still be.
 
"In Paul Harding's stunning first novel, we find what readers, writers and reviewers live for: a new way of seeing, in a story told as a series of ruminative images, like a fanned card deck."
