    Paperback✓ Young Adam ePUB ç young book, adam download, Young Adam KindleThis tale of a drifter who has packed in his writing career and who chooses to spend his time faffing about doing manual labour on a barge in Clydebank and seducing his boss’s dowdy wife somehow connected subcutaneously—not because I have at once time accidentally murdered my pregnant ex girlfriend by pushing her into the Clyde or because I have seduced my boss’s wife while working on a barge after packing in my writing career—not that because books about writers who are fuckups tend to connect with me on some deeper level who would have thought and because this is the sort of novel that romanticises the life of being a writer drifter figure a

    Paperback✓ Young Adam ePUB ç young book, adam download, Young Adam KindleI rarely seem to pick up Scottish books so I was pleased to finally get around to reading Young Adam The book is probably Trocchi's most well known and I imagine it was very scandalous at the time it was published 1954 but for the most part I didn't really understand the hypeThe book follows the narrator Jack a drifter who is working for Leslie the skipper of a barge on the canal linking Glasgow and Edinburgh One day they find the corpse of a young woman floating

    Paperback✓ Young Adam ePUB ç young book, adam download, Young Adam KindleI bought this book because it is listed as one of the 50 Books For Men After I finished the book last Thursday I did not feel any regret buying and reading this It is bereft of any emotion that reminded me of Albert Camus' The Stranger except for its absurdism and James Cain's The Postman Always Rings Twice for the plot a man hired by a couple seduces the wife to be his lover Oh well you can say the it is also the plot of many other novels including D H Lawrence's classic book Lady Chatterley's Lover but that one is wordy being the old school literary type of English novels This o

    Paperback✓ Young Adam ePUB ç young book, adam download, Young Adam KindleThe introduction to this 2008 is by Stewart Home who is probably very well known and respected but I didn't like it He wants to place the novel as a 'protopostmodernist' exemplar and says those

    Paperback✓ Young Adam ePUB ç young book, adam download, Young Adam KindleRead this a long long time ago and a sentence still keeps haunting me just the gist of it not the exact words I recently found it putting my books on shelves in my new apartment and am reading it again to find that one line The book was made into a breathtaking film with Ewan McGregor and Tilda Swinton in which there is a full frontal of McGregor naked that was just as haunting and startling as that sentence Trocchi's writing is gorgeous poetic sad sexy It obviously stays with you Here the narrator who is working on a barge going down a Scottish canal falls for the skipper's wife I'll say no Just reread and found that sentence which was actually a long passage Just as good and compelling on second read It's a tight compact beautifully structured and written novella More people need to know about Trocchi I believe he died of a heroin overdose A great loss

    Paperback✓ Young Adam ePUB ç young book, adam download, Young Adam KindleTrocchi's drifter is one of a long line of literary drifters; amoralist facing moral dilemma Unlike Camus' Stranger Trocchi's drifter commits a crime of which he goes unpunished and so we are deprived of the judgement of society but are treated to the self judgement of a man supposedly set adrift from the rules of humanity A simple direct prose and candid tone of voice belies a rich textu

    Paperback✓ Young Adam ePUB ç young book, adam download, Young Adam KindleA brilliantly crafted novel with a creeping sense of dread from the first page to the last It took until almost half way through the book for me to realise just how unreliable a narrator Joe was so cleverly were little pieces of previously missed information added in A great short story with many themes and aspects to keep me thinking for a long while yet

    Paperback✓ Young Adam ePUB ç young book, adam download, Young Adam KindleThis could have been a higher rating as I liked the twist but I couldn't get past the objectifying and dehumanising way the narrator spoke about and treated women This is pretty hypocritical from me considering the last book I read was Tropic of Cancer but allow me my opinion
