Publishers Carb the fuck up modern classics

In this tour de force of imagination Ron Currie asks why literal veracity means to us than deeper truths creating yet again a genre bending novel that will at once dazzle move and provoke The protagonist of Ron Currie Jr’s new novel has a problem­—or rather several of them He’s a writer whose latest book was destroyed in a fire He’s mourning the death of his father and has been in love with the same woman since grade school a woman whose beauty and allure is matched only by her talent for eluding him Worst of all he’s not even his own man but rather an amalgam of fact and fiction from Ron Currie’s own life When Currie the character exiles himself to a small Caribbean island to write a new book about the woman he loves he eventually decides to fake his death which turns out to be the best career move he’s ever made But fame and fortune come with a price and Currie learns that in a time of twenty four hour news cycles reality TV and celebrity Twitter feeds the one thing the world will not forgive is having been told a deeply satisfying lie What kind of distinction could or should be drawn between Currie the author and Currie the character?  Or between the book you hold in your hands and the novel embedded in it? Whatever the answers Currie an inventive writer always eager to test the boundaries of storytelling in provocative ways has essential things to impart along the way about heartbreak reality grief deceit human frailty and blinding love

    if you like your love stories unconventional and ultimately sad ach don't wave that spoiler finger at me that is a page 19 spoiler then this is probably a good match for you it is about the frailty of human romantic love the power of the written word the difficulties that truth faces in our works of fiction how to leave someone for their own good what the living have to witness in the slow death of another and the possibilities of the singularityi know right?this is my first ron currie but now i know i am going to backtrack and get on his earlier works his writing is that perfect blend of storytelling and delightful meta humor that those gregs and mfsos like so much and it's got that mainline to tragedy that reads my mail so everyone winsat its root this is indeed a love story but this story shifts between the past and the present the death of the ron currie named writer narrator's father ray kurzweil's predictions about the machiiiiiinesand the blurry boundaries of truth the love bits are the operatic all consuming violent bedroom kinds of love two people who cannot live without each other but who most often find themselves apart and the painful but necessary realities of this kind of explosive love the selfless giving everything up for anotherand the aftermath not a finding of self in the absence of the love object but a conscious negation of self up to and including an attempt at the ultimate negationis that vague enough? because i want you people to read this so i don't want to broadcast its secrets and its journey but i also don't want to be so vague that you will just goggle eye meit's sad and lovely and you might be surprised by the reversals of what is sad and what is lovelythat's all you get for nowbide your timecome to my blog
