  1. MJ Nicholls MJ Nicholls says:

    McEwen’s premier prose effort is the sort of freewheeling merrily unhinged performance that reminds one of the wondrous possibilities of the comic novel for chronic digression deviation and snubbing of the norm After sustaining a head wound on a frozen Walden Pond violinist and administrator Fisher staggers around Boston setting his office on fire fleeing from his part time girlfriend and hitting the bars with barfly philosopher Frank of Oregon who prefers to be addressed by his full title Mixing dialogue internal monologue and McEwen’s frenetic narration into one soup unburdened by speech marks lends the novel a European flavour Beckett is the author’s hero and creates a strange exultant tone of concussed lunacy


  2. Jamie Jamie says:

    Ha ha the crazy coincidence of reading this one right on top of Dubin’s Lives Even with the bleak northeast Walden and Thoreau in common I’m scared to even lay the two books side by side like they could somehow come alive and beat the crap out of each otherI haven’t read a book this zany and insane since Heller left Pianosa— not that it’s the same perfectly orchestrated riotous insanity as Catch 22 but I loved it and how could you not the disaffected overanxious and all too sincere Fisher unwittingly and then also willfully stirring up riots from the flapping bloody bandage on his head?My soft spot intact apparently for an ill fated certifiable antihero with uestionably massive head trauma and a doomed violin By the way I stumbled across this book trying to dig up McEwen’s essay “Cary Grant’s Suit” an old favorite essay from an old lost copy of Granta Not a fitting trade but a fair and enjoyable one


  3. Dan Dan says:

    Fisher seems to live in a perpetual nervous breakdown You can take his absurdities in reason and action as real understanding him as a self destructive neurotic perhaps trying to heal himself perhaps not Or you can take the absurdities as exaggerations that are not literally true but reflect both his feelings and his effort to purge the clutter in his life just as we can enjoy the singing in opera and take it as a reflection of feelings without believing that the story is about people who always communicate by singing to each other and reptitively at that Either way the book is funny A sense of the comedy is always uppermost because unlike James Wilcox’s “Modern Baptists” this book gives us Fisher’s miserable craziness his reactions to the foolishness and flaws in himself and in the outer world without inviting us to feel Fisher’s really intimate yearnings We are in his mind a very high percentage of the time but what we find there are his rages and complaints not the hard hurt that generates these feelings In other words McEwen doesn't allow you empathy that will dampen the comedyMcEwen moves Fisher through Boston and its environs starting with Walden Pond and moving on to Newbury Street Boston the Harvard Club a low drinking establishment in Cambridge uincy Market and Faneuil Hall and Not all in a single day to be sure but in three or four These erratic movements take Fisher through uite a few different social classes too including a rich friend who speaks in aristocratic accents a series of bums represented by Frank of Oregon a law studentgirl friend a daddy’s girl from the yachting set who says things like “oh goody” and has an perfectly decorated apartment and Rachel the commune girl Fisher’s nutty behavior seems to attract women If you substitute “sex” for “love” the message seems to be like Carson McCullers’ – sex can overcome all the differences between and on behalf of those who’ve been maimed in mind or body So what if Fisher’s crazy as a bedbug and rather destructive too? The women attracted to Fisher unsurprisingly have harmless sexual needs of a specialized order one involving what I imagine must be a standard fantasy involving doctors and patients the other perhaps a less common one Fisher’s actual sexual acts with three women are not described pornographically or in terms of body parts but with attention to detail in the play acting and in Fisher’s feelings Funny of course because this book is all about funny but some people may think some of the scenes there are not many manage a modicum of eroticism too although in general I tend to think it is an eitheror thing–either the humor dominates or the eroticism Part of the book’s humor lies in the absurdities of Fisher’s behavior part in the behavior of others and part in the absurdities McEwen satirizes – everything from artsy French movies to the politically correct food in a kind of commune not to mention several Establishments In a way the cast of characters seems unusual This is definitely not in the pattern of one sane man surrounded by comic nuts; nor is it the pattern of one comic nut surrounded by ordinary people Most of the people here are a little nuts not just Fisher You might even wish for a straight ordinary person to contrast with Fisher from time to time The one underlying thing that makes all of the humor work is McEwen’s language He writes funny sentences of course like other comic writers full of unexpected ways of seeing things and witty expressions of the insight But He really likes words and what can be done with them and I think he plays with little secret or at least obscure layers or messages The book’s name “Fisher’s Hornpipe” could be read to mean only “Fisher’s Dance” the main character’s dance through Boston and life? But hornpipe is not only a type of dance; “Fisher’s Hornpipe” is the name of a specific hornpipe tune I think McEwen enjoys getting layers of meaning and enhancing ambiguities Lots of allusions not just puns but allusions to all kinds of things Fisher’s encounter with Thoreau himself might be funny even to people who never heard of Thoreau but funnier to those who have Late in the book McEwen runs a riff on the famous lines about Christopher Robin’s teddy bear which begins this way “Here is Edward Bear coming downstairs now bump bump bump on the back of his head”AA Milne's Winnie The Pooh Chapter IMcEwen’s riff “Balluno dragged Fisher up the steps Bump Thump Bump up the narrow stairs BumpbumpbumpbumpbumpbumpbumpbumpBump Bumpbumpbumpbumpbumpbump Into the sitting room” P 240 I think McEwen likes the sounds words make and he makes up some; and as this example maybe shows I think he likes the very appearance of words on the page which can prompt a different kind of laugh I also suspect that he likes making obscure maybe almost secret allusions that carry little messages to the reader about themes of the book I’ll mention a couple of possibilities in a momentThe book opens with a uotation from good old cranky self righteous Thoreau he threw out some belongings because they reuired dusting when he hadn’t even managed to dust the furniture of his mind Sure enough Fisher literally and repeatedly throws away real furniture and metaphorical furniture relationships with individuals and with the larger community Walden’s in his head In a way the book though funny is also a layered tale about simplification of Fisher’s chaotic inner life Thoreau’s admonition was to “simplify simplify” a line which Mr T you yourself could have simplified by 50% if you’d truly favored simplicity Simplification by dumping furniture and friends doesn’t seem to get Fisher anywhere as he goes from place to place but at the end we might think that maybe someday it will and that his craziness has been after all a purge and simplification One justification for saying so is that McEwen seems to point to changes in Fisher toward the end of the book Fisher hears uartets by Haydn and Mozart However lively those uartets there is order in them not chaos And in one of McEwen's half hidden hints that remind us of the theme both are in 44 time Musicians call that simple time though McEwen doesn’t say so I don't read music but as best I can make out the tune called Fisher's Hornpipe is also in 44 or simple time Lots of cryptic clues here Not only does all this suggest that Fisher has managed to simplify his life a little in obedience to Mr T’s repetitious imperative but the uartets are played by ghosts which is to say by beings OK non beings then whose bodies those dying animals have been discarded like other useless furniture More simplification thenAnd finally McEwen lets us see glimpses of order and simplification in a stylized Navajo rug that somehow characterizes Fisher’s new thinking So maybe the beatitude of order and simplicity is in store for Fisher after all Happily for readers though we are not burdened with Fisher’s prospective peace; if he is actually working to discard the chaos along with his other furniture we get to enjoy his chaos in the processAs much as I liked and admired this humorous novel I thought it sagged in places We are in Fisher’s mind a high percentage of the time and sometimes his anger general neuroticism social criticism and self involvement just are not enough I got bored reading over and over how Fisher and a companion had a drink and then to steal McEwen’s style anotheranotheranotheranotherandAnother Will you like it enough to want to read it? My advice is to read the first four pages standing first on one foot and then the other in the aisle of some ancient second hand book store If you are grinning when you’ve finished four pages buy the damned thing In fact if you are lucky enough to find it in a second hand bookstore or a thrift shop I say buy the thing whether you grin or not Or if you can afford the fines for late returns my friends there’s always the library

    ok yeah this type of cartoonish but literary uasi picaresue complete w don martin sound effects is extreeeeeemely my jam so if anyone has recs besides confederacy obvi kindly hmu i can testify from personal experience that writing slapstick is harder than it seems so so to my man todd here for wringing every drop of hilarity from eg getting stuck in a loom a catastrophic french press mishap c all that being said there's no earthly justification for the last page of this thing which beyond doing no justice to the preceding ones is exactly the kind of bland pretense lampooned in the rest of the novel part of me is like if only he'd stuck the landing but most of me is extremely pleased

  10. Julie Moronuki Julie Moronuki says:

    This has been my favorite book for a long time now and I periodically re read it and it makes me double over with laughter every time I used to dislike the ending but the I've thought about it over the years the I've come to think it's a very fitting ending after all
