hit ‘n miss, September 26, 2002
By Jay Stevens (Missoula, MT) – See all my reviews

Erk! What a difficult review to write! So uneven, so blurry and ephemeral in plot and character, but containing a scene or two of exquisite beauty and skilled craftsmanship… What do you say?
“This book was a work of genius.” The early scenes of Paris as imagined by a boy listening to stories his grandmother weaves – think of the depth and complexity of creating point of view, setting, and character that this scene entails. And Makine pulls it off. Paris feels…unreal, like a child’s fantasy. Makine plunges into this fantastic Paris as if it is the story. As a result the reader’s images, too, become tangled and unsure, and the reader, too, becomes entranced by Parisian fairy tales.

“…overwritten, vague, and pretentious.” Yup. The book features your typical first-year college writing class protagonist. You know the type. Emotionally blocked. Self-obsessed. Absolutely passive. Self-pitying. A bookish nerd, dissed by the cool kids in school because he’s too sensitive. The kind of character that should be drop-kicked.

“…an homage to Russian and France…” Y-e-e-s. And no. Anything to do with the grandmother is gold. Her descriptions of France as imagined through her grandson, the story of her travel through Russian during the Civil War, seeing her walk along the train tracks by her house on the Russian steppe. Yes. Otherwise…no. We learn nothing new about Russia here, most of the platitudes written by our simpering protagonist are romanticized, overblown, and images of the country. And those of us who have been to Paris cannot fully succumb to the images of France, especially with the image of a lonely artist clicking away on his typewriter, wearing winter coat in his unheated Paris apartment. It’s like your typical year-abroad story at this point.

Perhaps what ruined the book the most for me was the expectation placed upon it by word of mouth and critical acclaim. It isn’t what it was said to be. (Lots of passive and contractions, there.) Lower your expectations.

Try something else, April 2, 2002
By pnotley@hotmail.com (Edmonton, Alberta Canada) – See all my reviews

A surprisingly large number of critics have compared this novel to Proust (though my copy has a reviewer compare it to “Doctor Zhivago). This can’t help Makine’s reputation, since it is very obvious that Makine is not in Proust’s class. One is reminded of Sartre’s comment that while Valery was a bourgeois, most bourgeois are not remotely like Valery. If Proust was a dandy, he was also infinitely more than that. He is also an intelligent and acute observer, a man of considerable wit and one of the finest writers of love in the last century. Makine is not really any of these.
The Independent claimed that “We inhabit [he hero’s] mind more intensely than any boy’s mind since Marcel’s in the Rembrance of Things Past.” Clearly false in my opinion, and not simply because of the counterexamples of Call it Sleep, See Under Love, or The Time of the Hero or The Street of Crocodiles. Much of the book consists of the protagonist’s obsessions with the stories related by his French grandmother about the idealized France of her youth at the beginning of the century. The only aspect of his childhood that is particularly well conveyed is the solipsistic intensity that he holds on to these memories. Other aspects of the child-like mind–the particularly acute observation, the intensity of new feelings, the special nature one attaches to certain objects or certain relationships–these are not well conveyed.

Ok, so he’s not Proust. Surely there are other virtues? But Dreams of My Russian Summers shows other problems. For a start, the main focus of the novel isn’t the memories of the protagonist’s (who is nicknamed once as Frantsuz), but those of his grandmother. The other relationships in his life are all curiously underplayed. There is a certain lack of reaction to the death of his two parents, a sister wanders out of the narrative never to be seen again, there are brief mentions of sexual interests as a teenager, but there is no systematic discussion of the Frantsuz’s love or sexuality. Except for one relationship has with a fellow adolescent Frantsuz has gone through life without any deep emotional connections except to his maternal grandmother. The contrast with Marcel or Proust is rather striking. Moreover, when Frantsuz finally emigrates to his idealized Paris, there is surprisingly little discussion on what he actually thinks about it.

Much of the book deals with his grandmother’s life, and it contains the natural horrors of 20th century Russia. There is the agony of the second world war, there are a couple of specific Stalinist atrocities (Beria’s raping of young women, the deportation of the dismembered from the streets of post-war Russia), naturally Frantsuz’s grandfather suffers under the Purges, and his grandmother is the victim of a partiucularly unpleasant crime. But there is something missing in this, something original. A contrast with W.G. Sebald’s Austerlitz is rather striking and to Makine’s detriment, since Sebald uses a special style and has the real sense of memory and description that Makine only thinks he has.

There is a certain tendency to use commonplaces about the essence of Russia: “an endless expanse yawning between this German city and Russia, asleep under the snows.” (207) “Russia, like a bear after a long winter, was awaking within me. A pitiless, beautiful, absurd, unique Russia. A Russia pitted against the rest of the world by it somber destiny.” (142) “Russia has no limits, neither in goodness nor in evil.” (146) “…this immensity that stretches from the Black Sea to Mongolia, and which is known as the `steppe’…” These are not particularly thoughtful or original comments. (And there is a tendency to refer to Russia alone. What about the other fourteen Soviet republics?) We get typical touches about long suffering women and about Russian alcoholism. We get sententious pseudo-Proustian touches (“Time, endowed with a grinding irony, and which, by reason of its tricks and inconsistencies, is forever reminding us of its indifferent power.”) There is a mildly amusing joke about how Frantsuz is unable to get his French books published in France, so he claims that his next French book is actually a translation from Russian. The final twist in the plot is extremely unconvincing, it raises all sorts of questions (such as why did Frantsuz’s relatives act the way they did?), is morally pointless and morally underdeveloped, and seems only to offer a retrospective vindication to Frantsuz’s conduct towards his family. Stalin and Brezhnev did almost infinite damage to Russian literature; but they can’t be blamed for all of Makine’s faults, and empty praise of him will not cure the suffering they caused.

I hope you get some ideas from here

Anyone have some theme ideas for formal parties (the type that would require linens to look fancy)?

Question by Zach: Anyone have some theme ideas for formal parties (the type that would require linens to look fancy)?
I have a project for work that I need to get done by Friday.Basically I need to write over 20 product descriptions on chair covers for a linen company. Each one needs to be unique, and we’re going for “themed” ideas to make it easier.
I’ve already got stuff like “Party on the beach” or “Comparing to King Arthur’s royal court parties”, I also have a French Sidewalk cafe theme for one or two of the cafe chair covers.

Anyone have some more? I need like 15 or 20.
Thank you much!
