Read full description of the books:
After finding out about this novel, that it is a collage of 40,000 fragments of text found in women’s magazines from the early 60s, I had to get a copy, just to goggle at it.
Reading it was quite secondary. But I did try that too. And I could have guessed that it was like being forcefed Battenburg cake
and chocolate cream rolls
and elephants’ feet
morning noon and night and all my teeth fell out and I put on 2 stone, I had to quit, I was quite ill.
This book is really like one of those Oulipo books where they write a novel without the letter e in it or like one of those lunatic performance art pieces from the 1980s
One Year Performance 1980–1981 (Time Clock Piece) by Tehching Hsieh
For one year, from April 11, 1980 through April 11, 1981, Hsieh punched a time clock every hour on the hour. Each time he punched the clock, he took a single picture of himself, which together yield a 6 minute movie. He shaved his head before the piece, so his growing hair reflects the passage of time. Documentation of this piece was exhibited at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2009, using film, punch cards and photographs.
Because when you think about it, Graham Rawle didn’t need to actually cut out and photograph all the 40,000 bits from his piles of magazines, he could have just written a novel in the style of this kind of vapid buy-more-shit-for-your-beautiful-kitchen adspeak and saved himself a world of pain. But that would have been too easy! And it would have just been a parody, not a lunatic performance art piece.
But I see that’s a minority opinion, most readers love this. I believe that when you get further than I did you find there’s an actual story and a fairly tough one at that embedded in all this confectionary. So I’m going to try again at some other time when I’ve recovered from the diabetes and eaten a couple of vegetables.
