    Aphorism laden novels have a tendency to catch my eye and make me want to read them, but they don t always deliver the goods It s the melancholy part of me that usually sees them and gets very excited over seeing pages that just have a line like, WHAT DOES GOD SMELL LIKE or BEING IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES DOESN T CHANGE US WE EAT WITH OUR MOUTHS NO MATTER WHAT COUNTRY WE ARE IN Maybe these aren t the most profound statements ever made, but something about an book that is willing to just put something like that on a page, by itself, makes me want to read it and I never think of the wastefulness of doing something like this, it s all about the presentation, fuck the pragmatics What kind of child wonders what God smells like, or finds solace in the fact that no matter what country her and her family find themselves in they still eat with their mouths We re dead a lot longer than we re alive that s why we need a whole lot good luck when we re dead people.The narrator is a young girl whose mother and stepfather escaped from the poverty and oppression of Romania to the West They are a circus family Her mother hangs from her hair and does tricks The stepfather is a clown There is little happiness in their refugee gypsy like existence What does rich mean Someday I want to spend a lot of money to buy a Chinese servant who will always stay awake so I don t have any bad dreams He ll be named Chin Chan and look out for me, and I won t be afraid any And everybody will be surprised.The family dreams of a better life, but they are incapable of getting anywhere close to achieving it The stepfather beats on the family and has an incestuous relationship with his genetic daughter, and possibly with the narrator, but this is never made explicit but it s possible from the childlike perceptions that things aren t as they should be between her and her stepdad The writing captures a childlike perspective well, a childhood forged in poverty and a lack of education, with travelling and a borderline outlaw sort of existence It mixes the elements of the orthodox religion of her mother s family with the the fairy tales she hears and tries to make sense of the world with a perspective that doesn t always know or maybe just doesn t want know the difference between the fantastical and the real As a thread running through the story is the story her family would tell her about the child who was cooking in the polenta, and her constant attempts to figure out why the child would end up in the polenta, was it the child s guilt that led her there The parents Was it an accident, or something horrific that had to be done to the child because the child is the type that deserves to die As the novel goes on she re interrupts the story again and again, and as the story progresses new details are added and she takes delight in making her older sister add gruesome details to what happens to the child once it is cooking in the polenta I m not doing a great job selling this book to you, am I So much about this book could have failed, and it toed the line between being a success and a gimmicky novel is this the right word, gimmicky It could have been precocious, and it could have wallowed in the muck of incest and abuse, but even when the narrator says something like, No man has touched me where it counts I think about nothing else I want to be raped by two men at the same time , there is nothing shocking about the statement In the twisted world the girl has grown up in she is twelve maybe thirteen at the time and her mother has gotten her employed to dance naked in some kind of circus show, and has glued on pubic hair to make her appear older , it s just another element of the sadness of her life than an edgy thing Again what child thinks of things like this What leads a child to think like this The book is at least semi autobiographical The author was part of a circus family that escaped from Romania and eventually found refuge in Switzerland The author also ended up killing herself at the age of forty even though on the surface she was enjoying considerable success in the theater and won a prestigious prize for this novel Exactly how much of the book is autobiographical I have no idea, but according to the essay at the end of the book the basic outline of the narrators life is the same as the novelist s I d pictured happiness differently.

    At times this read like an erasure of parts of Maidenhair a refugee related tale set across many foreign countries but ultimately in Switzerland told from a child s POV even when she s no longer really a child in super spare language resembling poetry, with occasional pages with only one line in ALL CAPS, and without the literary bloviation intentional disorientation that did me in when I failed the aforementioned Maidenhair Found this one enjoyable, quick, surprisingly humorous especially when dealing with the standby events of books like this lechery, cruelties, old country traditions like bleeding out chickens in the bathtubs of hotels and affecting the image of the mother hanging from the circus big top by her hair, its precariousness and anxiety, accelerated the text s heartbeats per minute, thanks to the expectation of something awful There s also a welcome explanatory essay at the end by the translator that includes a lot of bio info Was worried at first that it might feel false, overly whimsical, like one of those cute, quirky, psychosexually violent indie films, but then once I became aware of how the story synched with the author s story she too performed in the circus as a Romanian refugee and ultimately killed herself in 2002 , reality kicked in and the cuteness became armor, the humor reinforced with steel Worth it for the precision of the language, the perfectly phrased lines suggestive of so much , usually set off at the end of a page all of which is made interesting by bits directly addressing language literacy and identity self and nationality Another in the ever lengthening list of crazy European novels narrated by kids exposed to cruelties and brutalities, whose innocence is warped by experience but ultimately retained in an up with people way that complicates the notion that humanity just sorta sucks definitely worth a look, even for those like me who prefer not to encounter underage narrators.

    Strongly autobiographical, this little novel is narrated by a child born into a family of Romanian circus performers, who flee communist Romania in the 1960s and travel through Europe and Africa in hopes of a brighter future They live the life of refugees, of strangers struggling to adapt to a foreign world, whose everyday existence is consumed by uncertainty and fear the parents fear of being sent back home, the father s fear of the tightrope as the girl says, he can only maintain his equilibrium while drunk , the family s concern that someone will copy their artistic number and push them out of their jobs The most poignant sense of fear, which discreetly permeates even the most hopeful passages, comes, however, from the girl and her half sister who worry that their mother might die during her dangerous act of hanging by her hair from the trapeze Dorm p n spre pr nz, ca s scurtez frica de dinaintea num rului ei, pentru c dac m scol devreme, mai dureaz mult p n ncepe reprezentatia I sleep late in the morning to shorten my fear, because if I get up early, the fear will last until her performance begins The constant anxiety forces them to find comfort in the ghastly story of the child cooking in the polenta, a story repeated in different and, as life advances and becomes darker, progressively grotesque versions throughout the book I apologize in advance for the clumsy translation it s not my strong suit n timp ce mama at rn de p r sus, n cupola circului, sora mea mi poveste te POVESTEA COPILULUI CARE FIERBE IN M M LIG , ca s m lini teasc.C nd mi nchipui cum fierbe copilul n m m lig i ce r u doare, nu m mai g ndesc tot timpul c mama ar putea s cad de acolo, de sus, spune ea.Dar nu ajuta la nimic Eu trebuie s m g ndesc mereu la moartea mamei, ca s nu m ia prin surprindere V d cum i d foc la p r cu f cliile aprinse, cum cade r z nd la p m nt Iar c nd m aplec spre ea, fa a ei se descompune i se preface n cenu.Nu strig.Mi am aruncat gura While mother hangs by her hair, under the big top, my sister tells me THE STORY OF THE CHILD COOKING IN THE POLENTA, to soothe me.When I imagine the child cooking in the polenta and how bad it must hurt, I stop thinking all the time that mother could fall from up there, she says.But it s not helping I always need to think about mother s death lest it take me by surprise I watch her as she sets her hair on fire with lit torches, as she falls to the ground, laughing And when I lean towards her, her face crumbles and turns into ashes.I don t scream I ve thrown my mouth away The experimental, quirky style makes for an emotional journey through surreal thoughts which half work, half alienate , puerile ideas some endearing, some cringeworthy , long lists of items, pages with space than words, sudden outbursts of feelings into capital lettered sentences The prose almost leaps into poetry and seems as uncertain and unconventional as the author s life In an interview, Aglaja Veteranyi compared the time spent with her family with a play by Eug ne Ionesco, an impression that transpires somewhat in her book In case anyone s interested, there s a movie based on her life.

    Tragica, negru umoristica, suprarealista Un vartej, apoi un labirint Acolo, contorsionism imaginar, dansul logicii cu nonsensul in ceaunul cu mamaliga O scriere trasata cu stiloul vulnerabilitatii si fragilitatii umane insisi Imbiba in trairi.
