    About family problems, cheating, adolescent sons defiantly changing, about incommunicability, even incompatibility, racism related mournfulness, difficulties in finding one s place in the constantly changing world, about all this and other Caryl Phillips writes in this novel, with special reference to Caribbean backgrouns and their impact on the lives and mentalities of his characters.

    Definitely a challenging readbut a great book A book about three generations of black men who live in the UK One of the black men, Keith Gordan, a middle aged man going through a midlife crisis Yes, he may be a little annoying, irratating at times but that is to be expected from an individual who doesn t really understand himself and therefore is at odds with his environment He tries to connect to his mixed race son, he can t he tries to connect to his ex wife, the Polish girl and his fathe Definitely a challenging readbut a great book A book about three generations of black men who live in the UK One of the black men, Keith Gordan, a middle aged man going through a midlife crisis Yes, he may be a little annoying, irratating at times but that is to be expected from an individual who doesn t really understand himself and therefore is at odds with his environment He tries to connect to his mixed race son, he can t he tries to connect to his ex wife, the Polish girl and his father but he can t You are even annoyed at him for having an affair with a member of his staff because as a Manager, he really should know better But he doesn t This is a book about isolation and given the ending a long monologue in patois by his father just before he passes away that even though it is not possible to seek and gain an identity, you can still exist not knowing yourself I think that is what the author is saying Please let me know what you think of the ending

  3. Terry Perrel says:

    A quiet yet powerful portrait of a man s undoing during his middle years and his lost of identity as husband and father I think Caryl Phillips, a native of St Kitts and a resident of London, is one of the finest writers of this century.

    I liked it I immediately trusted Phillips s sentences, diving into them completely the way I did as a kid when I read at night, under the covers, with a flashlight The novel is about how a somewhat recently divorced middle aged man navigates his relationship with his son and father And about what it means to be Black in London as a teenager, a professional, and an old man.What seems to be most unique, stylistically, is Phillips s sense of time The piece flows back and forth between the pr I liked it I immediately trusted Phillips s sentences, diving into them completely the way I did as a kid when I read at night, under the covers, with a flashlight The novel is about how a somewhat recently divorced middle aged man navigates his relationship with his son and father And about what it means to be Black in London as a teenager, a professional, and an old man.What seems to be most unique, stylistically, is Phillips s sense of time The piece flows back and forth between the present, the recent past, and the past, without any sort of formal demarcation As a result, Phillips effectively represents the mind of his protagonist, and, consequently, heightens the level of intimacy This is the first book I ve read from Phillips, but I ll certainly be reading

    Really 2.5 stars rounded up I found his way of skipping between past and present gimmicky He was on the bus remembering the conversation he hadhe was home remembering what happened at the station Also I could barely make it through the last part of the book, even though it was really important, because the stream of consciousness went on and on and onI ve never read this author before so maybe I d like his other work better, though I m not excited to try.

  6. Jennifer Wiget says:

    took me a bit of time to get into this as the style if writing is very detailed and long sentences but once i got into it i found the story flows very nicely it talks about a lot of important things like belonging somewhere, changing and having to let go, family and obviously racial issues all in all i found the whole story just a bit too mellow

  7. Gary says:

    Different book for me in that it chronicles experiences that are some what different than mine because I grew up in the States Wasn t crazy about the ending.

  8. NancyKay says:

    Readable novel describing what it s like to be a man, an ex husband, an adult son, a father of an adolescent, and a West Indian in London Clunky prose, and clunky shifts back and forth from a present story told in present tense to flashbacks, and lots of passages where a character is speaking in the kind of smooth detailed narration that has never come out of a person s mouth But while these infelicities did get in a way for me a bit, I was engaged all the way through in the main character s s Readable novel describing what it s like to be a man, an ex husband, an adult son, a father of an adolescent, and a West Indian in London Clunky prose, and clunky shifts back and forth from a present story told in present tense to flashbacks, and lots of passages where a character is speaking in the kind of smooth detailed narration that has never come out of a person s mouth But while these infelicities did get in a way for me a bit, I was engaged all the way through in the main character s struggles often ineffectual and counter productive as they were to stay upright while big parts of his life fall away Keith is a man who makes a lot of mistakes and miscalculations they cost him his marriage and his job but as a tour of his inner life, and how it connects up to his immigrant parents past and his bi racial son s future, the novel succeeds

    Haven t read any other books by this author, so I can t compare them, but I have a feeling this can t be among his best The central character is having a mid life crisis but does that explain all his actions He behaves very strangely for a social worker used to bureaucracy doesn t get a lawyer to protect his interests at work, immediately starts stalking that Polish girl, is somewhat ambivalent towards his sonall in all I as not very engaged because I stopped believing in it all His Haven t read any other books by this author, so I can t compare them, but I have a feeling this can t be among his best The central character is having a mid life crisis but does that explain all his actions He behaves very strangely for a social worker used to bureaucracy doesn t get a lawyer to protect his interests at work, immediately starts stalking that Polish girl, is somewhat ambivalent towards his sonall in all I as not very engaged because I stopped believing in it all His father s deathbed narrative is interesting but implausible as an actual speech And the ending Well, I suppose it had to end somewhere, and why not where the generations start repeating themselves

  10. Andrea says:

    Did not like it There was this sense of detachment that I felt throughout the entire book Keith felt detached from his life, and the way it was narrated made me feel equally detached from him It wasa listing of what Keith was doing moment by moment, but without any real emotion or motivation attached to it None of it mattered, really I didn t care about any of his problems, and I barely cared about any of the people in his life as well The flashbacks were awkwardly placed and abrupt, Did not like it There was this sense of detachment that I felt throughout the entire book Keith felt detached from his life, and the way it was narrated made me feel equally detached from him It wasa listing of what Keith was doing moment by moment, but without any real emotion or motivation attached to it None of it mattered, really I didn t care about any of his problems, and I barely cared about any of the people in his life as well The flashbacks were awkwardly placed and abrupt, and only maybe a quarter of it was interesting The author seemed to have a hard time writing convincing women Sometimes they were catty in a very stereotypical angry wife girlfriend way, which was out of character with the way they were presented for the entire first half of the book
