Men in Space



Men in Space Set in a Central Europe rapidly fragmenting after the fall of communism, Men in Space follows a cast of dissolute Bohemians, political refugees, football referees, deaf police agents, assassins, and stranded astronauts as they chase a stolen icon painting from Sofia to Prague and beyond The icon s melancholy orbit is reflected in the various characters ellipses and near misses as they career vertiginously through all kinds of space physical, political, emotional, and metaphysical What emerges is a vision of humanity adrift in history, and a world in a state of disintegration.

    This is really good, especially for a first novel McCarthy exerts a whole lot of control over both his characters and his prose, which isn t always a great thing, but works well here One of the main characters spends a portion of the book forging a painting, and at one point McCarthy lists all the things he needs in order to do it whiting powder, rabbit skin glue, methylated spirits, cotton wool, ketone resin crystals, white spirit, beeswax, jelly, wire wool, sandpaper, carbon paper, purified This is really good, especially for a first novel McCarthy exerts a whole lot of control over both his characters and his prose, which isn t always a great thing, but works well here One of the main characters spends a portion of the book forging a painting, and at one point McCarthy lists all the things he needs in order to do it whiting powder, rabbit skin glue, methylated spirits, cotton wool, ketone resin crystals, white spirit, beeswax, jelly, wire wool, sandpaper, carbon paper, purified water, garlic, and so on The amount of detail that went into writing it reminded me of The Recognitions, until I realized that it wasn t that that reminded me of it it was the entir...

    The Lit major in me wants to give McCarthy s MEN IN SPACE five stars for its detailed symbolism, its highly intricate analogies, and its artistic complexity The lover of stories in me, however, wants to give it two stars for its almost aggressively dense plotting, its alienating cartography, and its oh so palpable disdain for anything even approaching entertainment Let s call it an even 3.5 and round up.This is the third McCarthy book I ve read As aovert puzzle novel, ASIN 0307388212 The Lit major in me wants to give McCarthy s MEN IN SPACE five stars for its detailed symbolism, its highly intricate analogies, and its artistic complexity The lover of stories in me, however, wants to give it two stars for its almost aggressively dense plotting, its alienating cartography, and its oh so palpable disdain for anything even approaching entertainment Let s call it an even 3.5 and round up.This is the third McCarthy book I ve read As aovert puzzle novel, ASIN 0307388212 C exhausted me, and although its opaqueness kept me at a distance, its overall shape and weft was obviously the work of genius Evenaccessible, ASIN 0307278352 Remainder did get repetitive and tiresome, but the writing flowed so quickly and with such sumptuous detail that every other page seemed to give me a second and third and so on wind This novel about failed transcendence, about isolation and human detritus, and about the existential inevitability of ignorance or just misunderstanding seemed, however, to bela...

    I loved Tom McCarthy s Remainder, and his Tintin and the Secret of Literature, so I was looking forward to this, and wasn t disappointed It s an often disjointed story set in Prague, featuring British and American expats, a rather self conscious group of Czech artists and literal Bohemians, and local and Bulgarian gangsters A stolen icon forms the focus for this disparate group of people So far so thriller ish, from my description here, but Tom McCarthy raises his work above genre he shows I loved Tom McCarthy s Remainder, and his Tintin and the Secret of Literature, so I was looking forward to this, and wasn t disappointed It s an often disjointed story set in Prague, featuring British and American expats, a rather self conscious group of Czech artists and literal Bohemians, and local and Bulgarian gangsters A stolen icon forms the focus for this disparate group of people So far so thriller ish, from my description here, but Tom McCarthy raises his work above genre he shows that all characters don t have to interract for events to impact on them Some characters seem to peter out, but they are still there in the background, going obliviously about their lives, or, you have to assume, seeing them fall to pieces, or c...
