    This book took me by surprise I really wasn t expecting much of it, how wrong I was It is a love story, well than one love story actually It is also based on, wound around the philosophy of Foucault, which is not always an easy read, but there is a simplicity and directness here and complex ideas are expressed beautifully simply There are touches of Nietzsche, Freud and I think Sartre In fact reading it took me back to when I was 19 and read Nausea there was a similar feel especially in the dream sequence at the end The unnamed narrator is studying the work of novelist Paul Michel who Dunckner neatly slots in the late 60s and 70s effectively post Sartre and who is gay The narrator falls in love with another student he meets in the library and she pushes him in his study of Michel This love story is a pale reflection of what comes later He discovers that Michel is now incarcerated in an institution and is mentally unwell.Briefly, the narrator goes to France and finds Michel The Paul Michel character is a strong one who initially appears predatory, but as time goes o...

    The love between a writer and a reader is never celebrated It can never be proved to exist, says the fictitious French author celebrated in this dodgy novel Well, since the internet, that s NOT TRUE ANY MORE We rhapsodise our love for our authors till the cows come home here on GR And way after the cows are all tucked up in bed Two good things about this novel Practically paralysed by incipient grottiness I could hardly move all day today except to keep turning the pages so finished it in one day which I like to do It is very readable You don t need to know anything about Foucault, who was one of those terrifying French thinkers like Lyotard and Lacan They really used to think a lot in France We don t do that here in the UK Several bad things about this novel I don t like unnamed narrators Come on, Patricia Duncker, is it asking too much to think up a name Or does the not naming somehow confer a mysterious significance on your 22 year old student If so I did not get that.I don t like unnamed narrators who hav...

    Even then, I saw the darkness I see now But it was like a shadow in the corner of my eye, a sudden movement as a lizard vanishes behind the shutters But in the last years I have felt the darkness, gaining ground, widening like a stain across the day And I have watched the darkness coming with complete serenity The door stands always open, to let the darkness in Out of this knowledge too, I will make my writing And I have nothing to fear Patricia Duncker, Hallucinating FoucaultI loved Hallucinating Foucault I love the title, the content, the language, everything about it I really enjoy novels that are enriched with literary and classic references This one also had a lot of mystery so it made my reading experience even enjoyable The book tells the story of a young, unnamed English student doing his dissertation on the novels of an enigmatic gay French novelist, Paul Michel Michel is a strange man who controversially believes that people choose their sexuality He revels in being unconventional.Michel is obsessed with Foucault, who he stated as his only influence There are rumours that Michel has become mad and has been locked up in a French mental asylum Pushed by his girlfriend, the Germanist, who is herself very enigmatic and str...

    4.5 5 But you musn t have romantic ideas about them Murderers are ordinary people. This is another book which, had I read it a mere two to four years earlier, I would have unequivocally adored As the Foucault of the Hallucinating Foucault intimidated me too much to pick it up till now, my less than loving rating stands I do not regret it, as there is no guarantee that an earlier reading would have resulted in as great an understanding While it s true that I still have no real experience with actually reading Foucault in the cohesive entirety of one of his works, enough bits and pieces of Discipline and Punish and The Order of Things have reached me for general comprehension purposes And of course, Foucault is very French in his academia, so reading enough Sartre and de Beauvoir and Camus and the rest as I did will give you an idea of what you re getting into.Despite my desire to become an English professor, I will never be comfortable with closeting myself into the bell jar of theory and perdition that th...

    The captivating title ladles servings of disappointment and hope in uneven swathes A philosophical fiction, a novel of academia, a book on the creative mind, story of a writer Any one of these would prove necessary for me to read immediately It was a book of all of these but first it was a, novel Its parts sprung from the story, shoots and growth At times a 2 star rating at times touching a spiraling 5 I saw where it meant to arrive Then, in advance I placed my money down on the table with a wry smile, on the numbered choice of the author s craft of teasing with the obvious and predictable then switching to a beguiling direction The casino card dealer turned over his card I placed my hand down hard between his and my chips I gave the cocksure upward nod of the head, intimidating or revealing the need for further chiropractic work He said, You lost Count your cards, I laughed You do the counting I smiled looking down at my queen and ten Offered him the same He grinned glancing at his ace and king while shoveling my chips from me What Duncker had slipped the narrative off a third way, then She never notifying me, no phone calls, collect or otherwise, e mails, telegrams, no police at my door ...

    I wish I had read Foucault I am sure that I would have got out of this rich, pungent morsel of a book if I understood about the inspiration I feel sure that master of mindfulness Jean Michel is a Foucauldian hero, living at risk, fiercly political, passionate yet detached to the point of psychopathy, producing classical, harmonious, mysteriously civilized art And that the nameless Germanist writing love letters to Schiller is a Foucauldian feminist But I am jumping to conclusions in both casesI found the narrator oddly watery and cipherous He responds, he initiates, he exhibits courage, passions, tastes But he seems somehow flat, bodiless, without character, beside every other member of the cast, who dance onto the novel s stage in vivid colour and make themselves felt, sometimes painfully, in my psyche Stopping short of aggression, this vivaciousness drives the story the world would slump to a bland halt without these Nietzschean personalities mercilessly driving it round.I wonder why Duncker lavishes so much attention on her description of certain habitations here, because this is a work that doesn t waste words.The little glass animals crowding the surfaces in the room where the narrator lodges, and the labyrinthine, redolent spaces of the psychiatric hospital are meant to affect me and they do, hook...

    I am a straight guy, and this is a gay love story Towards the end, however, I felt like I m tearing up, Nicholas Sparksed, and ready to vote this dialogue as the greatest one in a gay love themed novel of all time If you love someone you know where they are and what has happened to them And you put yourself at risk to save them if...

    A very well drawn, perfectly paced novel I am reminded of Gid s Fruits of the Earth I am sure Drucker meant to refer to this Characters and event are believable, though I am still not sure why this is a criterion of quality for me, even when it comes to outrageous or modernist writing, eg, Gravity s Rainbow, Ulysses Who in the first can truly believe that a titanic adenoid might menace a city, and in the latter that Polyphemus is once slain albeit symbolically in early twentieth century Dublin Perhaps it is therefore only weight of an author s commitment to some kind of truth then, that I respond to A truth that is, if parsed, synonymous with both love for subject, and a need to make this subject heard Duncker s novel is thus an exploration of what happens when a writer finds an ideal reader The event of when a writer finds a perfect listener For, to read is one thing To hear and be bewitched by allure, another Thus rather than Barthes famous pronouncement on death of the author, we instead get a kind of birthing The unnamed post grad in the book embarks on a quixotic journey to meet the insane subject of his research and in so doing to scrunch the book into Procrustean bed of tropes he undergoes an internal change, he loves where once we are led to believe it seems he might not be disposed to do so A type of living is birthed in him only to collapse in the last few almost tragic pages So too is this a book about books It is a book about love for books that lead...

    While not a huge fan of the ending which I found to be slightly overwrought, the rest of the book blew me out of the water, and these days, it takes a LOT for that to happen The unnamed narrator in this story is working on his doctorate at Cambridge, studying the life of French author Paul Michel, the wild boy of his generation Along with his works, the narrator worked to build an image of his subject, a man who was, as he says beautiful And he was homosexual, a fact that he insisted on bringing up in all interviews he d ever given In one of these interviews, when asked which other writer had influenced him the most, Michel had immediately answered Foucault There were, as we are told, several uncanny links, between Paul Michel and Michel Foucault, including the fact that they were both preoccupied with marginal, muted voices, and both were captivated by the grotesque, the bizarre, the demonic Both also also explored similar themes death, sexuality, crime, madness 31 While their styles were different, at the core of the works of both men Foucault s philosophy and Paul Michel s fiction stood the revolutionary project of thinking differently All of t...
