Esther Allen, tr. QUIPOem. Two books in one (Wesleyan Poetry) its many merits or maybe precisely because of them Even though I myself have been mostly livingn a bubble of educated The Color of Water intelligent liberally minded andnternationally conscious populace I am well aware that Mayan Strawberries its Bill Gates (Up Close) indeed a bubble and not how people generally are I sometimes catch glimpses of the life outside the bubble andt Mistaken Mistress is very similar to the lifen Vittula and Bunny: A Novel its surroundings Such glimpses rattle me slightly forcing me to withdraw backnto my bubble where life s not perfect either just familiar to my sensibilities In reality though t The Great Smog of India is eually possible to be unhappy bothnside and outside the bubble It s just that nside the bubble we have a better vocabulary and practice to talk about our unhappinessIt s rather curious that a book that The Sex of the Angels, the Saints in their Heaven: A Breviary is pretty funny has put men such a gloomy mood It Tryst with Prosperity is also curious thatntellectually I acknowledge that this Popular Hits is really good literature but I still did not enjoy the process of readingt Lots of food for thought though as long as the thinking s done nside the bubble I distinctly remember starting this book I was on a plane home from Japan finally from our sudden month n the UK They had just turned the lights out after meals and drinks so that people could sleep It was about 12am at night Japanese time so 1am Aussie time I was already feeling self conscious as my light was on but Lexx and my brother were on either side of me Lexx had taken a sleeping tablet and my brother still hadn t got the hang of
on planes And I was trying not to piss myself laughing at this bookThis book sn t really a book of short stories but The Creative Habit it kind ofs It s probably better described as a collection of vignettes of the author s childhood How many of them are true God knows He probably doesn t know entirely himself This The Rest of the Story is whats the most gripping part of this book It tells stories of his childhood growing up on the far northern border of Sweden and Finland above the Arctic Circle where they speak their own language which sn t uiet Swedish but not uite Finnish and considered a bastard kind of area by both Finland and Sweden With all this n the background he tells you these stories as absolute truths that just sort of get carried away on a child s magination until they are fantastical n nature and far too big to be true But you can Lords of Life: A History of the Kings of Thailand imagine little Mikael swearing black and blue that s exactly what happenedThis element diminishes slightly as he gets older and the fantastic almost magical realism of the book settles backnto a measured reality But was t s replaced by The Tears of Eros is a humour and a heartbreaking assessment of the reality of the town that only teenagers can really giveThat s the thing that sucks youn really It s the brutal honesty of this book Whether t s him telling you a story at 5 or 15 or 25 You believe his complete sincerity In a world that undervalues honestly so much this s a very rare giftFor reviews visit Popular Music from Vittula Simon Spatz: From Holocaust to Halifax, A Story of Survival and Success is anngenious blend of memoir folklore magical realism and talented story telling Who knew growing up A Life in Two Worlds in the Arctic Circle would be so enchanting I thoughtt would be too frigid to do anything but shiver But Niemi forms a beautiful landscape where men half a step away from Vikings raise kids who listen to The Beatles The modern age uite literally steam rolls The Hitler Kiss: A Memoir of the Czech Resistance into an edge of the world village where citizens are treading the waters.

Growing upn a small town The Accidental Cowboy (Angel Crossing, Arizona, in the northernmost corner of Sweden can be hard for a boy and. Between the religi Mattis a regular teen Abby and the Bachelor Cop in 60s Pajala upn the extreme north of Sweden where they think of themselves as Finns and speak Finnish by preference These are guys who know how to hold their liuor laugh at temperatures that go down to forty below zero handle a gun an axe or a snowmobile build a house butcher a reindeer and treat women the way they really want to be treated Though Eye to Eye it s true Matti has also discovered rock n roll Maybe that makes him knapsu gay but he doesn t care A real Finn can take care of himselff anyone s dumb enough to call him knapsuHe also turns out to be a natural writer his voice s sort of like Huck Finn crossed with a Viking saga Out of consideration to the guys further south he s been kind enough to write to the guys further south he s been kind enough to write book n Swedish which at least s a half respectable language I understand that there s an English translation too though I m not sure I can recommend t Here s what Matti thinks of English Engelska detta spr k med alldeles f r svagt tuggmotst nd f r h rda finska k ftar s sladdrigt att bara flickor kunde f femmor Herzrivalen i det denna snigelaktiga rotv

gobbledegook Alaskan Nights invented by muddy southerners who ve never needed to fight never been frozen or hungry a language for lazy vegetarians who fart on their sofas so completely lackingn texture that you feel your tongue sliding around n your mouth like a "cut off foreskinUnfortunately we can t all be Finns Girls the uickest way to Pajala s fly to "off foreskinUnfortunately we can t all be Finns Girls the uickest way to Pajala s fly to via Stockholm then take the bus north But don t get your hopes upConsulting the Swedish wikipedia page about this book I m pleased to see that t s been translated nto both the dialect of Finnish spoken here and standard Finnish together with some other languages It also correctly describes the book as a skr na roughly bragging or lying as an art form masuerading as an autobiography I m afraid to say that some other reviewers have called t magical realist They are so knapsu that they probably enjoy the taste of wine This one has Always Look Twice it all Humanity humour up the wazoonsight high emotional stakes great use of language All For You: Halfway There / Buckhorn Ever After / The One You Want / One Perfect Night it must be amazingn the Swedish but oh wellmagic and morals Anyone who grew up Any Man Of Mine in ansolated place will relate to this Spoiler alert Annalee And The Lawman if you already know you re going to read this book stop nowseriously why ruintok here goesthe scene where Niila s abusive father gets his ass kicked then while convalescing finds heaven while walking the landscape The Apollonides Mistress Scandal in the cracks of the ceiling was one of the mostbelievable portrayals of a religious experience that I have readn a long time Ever So beautiful And the rest of the chapter s amazing as well It s almost biblical n Anything For His Son it s archetypal weight To me this chapters the beating heart of the book Not funny like the rest but the lynchpin the keystone of a magnificent humble novel Best Finnish book everWell OK I haven t read any othersBut this Anticipation is what Imagine my childhood may have been like f my father had never left FinlandSome of the most endearing scenes and stories I have ever read Too god damned cute to put down Nothing life changing n here but It Shouldn T Be shouldn t be The narrator n this self deprecating Swedish coming of age story does a great job at capturing a child s view of things Author Mikael Niemi keeps the reader guessing at time as to the reliability of the narrator as he winds his way through the story of the friendship of two boys their families and eventually their band The story reminded me of A Christmas Story with ts wry depiction of working class families n a snowy climate The chapter n which two families engage Annie and the Outlaw in a drinking contest followed by a sauna contests one of the all time great depictions of stubbornness and stoicism The story bogged down for me when the boys reach puberty Call me a stereotypical female but there are only so many times I can maintain an ANNIE AND THE PRINCE interestn reading about boys discovering their sexuality In fact I think one reading of John Updike twenty years ago had me pretty much set for life The Single Dad's Redemption in this regard The average teenager s sexual thoughts and actions to say nothing of those belonging to the adult male really just aren t thatnteresting Even so Niemi ends the book with a final sentence of such beauty that t perfectly caps the uneven preceding chapter.
