Author Kevin Barry crossbreeds the mythlegend of John Lennon with the man he was in this fable like surreal story of one Beatle s odyssey Lennon bought an island in Western Ireland almost a decade before also known as Beatle Island He d only been once Now it s 1978 and he s in the midst of his dry years He hasn t produced new material since the 1974 Walls and Bridges he s busy baking bread and being a househusband giving all his attention to Yoko and their toddler son Sean He s even gone macrobioticNow John wants a pilgrimage to his island to spend three days in solitude and see if the artist juice flows to find his mojo again His experience in Primal Scream therapy has given him something to work with while out there His driver Cornelius O Grady is uite the eccentric character He helps to ward off the press and navigate to the tiny island in Clew Bay called Dorinish pronounced Dornish but the circumnavigation leads to surprising detours in this no surprise 9 chapter masterpiece A magical mystery tourIf you re expecting a Beatle mania bio or story then you may be disappointed Barry s prose has than a touch of magical realism and in 8 of the 9 chapters he comes at the story from a slanted angle Yes we are inside Lennon s head but the lexicon and dialect as well as the astonishing prose play with ambiguity and create a hypnagogic atmosphere I had to pay attention and eventually the dialogue and exposition construct a moving painterly portrait of John Lennon the man as it captures the myth Chapter six is kind of an alternate chapter wherein Barry writes an essay like account of his own personal odyssey to Dorinish It acts as glue for the rest of the book and serves to answer some of the uestions that may be rolling around in the reader s head It is also in its realism what turns this book from a truly excellent book to a tour de force While John Lennon appropriately remains at some distance myth like Kevin Barry s essay is almost confessional and it draws you into his heartIf you are not knowledgeable about John Lennon it won t keep you from enjoying this masterly work of literature The upside of being ignorant of Lennon history is you won t have expectations of it being a Beatle book It may heighten the enjoyment however to know a few things Lennon was born and raised in Liverpool mostly by his Aunt Mimi as his troubled mother Julia the song Julia is an homage to her suandered her life and compelled the state to remove John from her His father left them when John was very young He carries an eternal melancholy regarding his youth and the author freuently furnished the story with the musician s unresolved pain about his pastLennon has a certain feminine side to him Yoko wore the pants so to speak and handled all his business affairs He also had an obsession with numbers particularly the number 9 John and Yoko lived at the tony Dakota apartments in NYC where he was also shot and killed at age forty on December 8 1980 It s still sad to recall that his album Double Fantasy his first in five years was released just a few short weeks before his murderOn this fabled journey Cornelius is eually a main character His shapeshifting nature is a fitting counterpoint to John s distress As Lennon wears his driver s dead father s silver blue suit for much of the time the narrative dabbles with fantastical hallucinogenic visuals that add dimension to Lennon s loss and grief There s a lot of alcohol and in the local pub Cornelius introduces John as his half deaf cousin Kenney They drink they sing and at one point John almost has it out with a local The novel is peppered with LennonBeatle lyrics as well as Beach Boys Peter Frampton and other songs of the timesMy second favorite chapter was a detour to the now closed occult ish Amethyst hotel a place that is like a twisted perverted Valhalla run by an Odin like character Joe Director What happens there is captivating and brings out Lennon s fractious belligerent nature when he is expected to take part in ranting and screaming with a young couple that are staying there It is also a heartbreaking interlude where mourning and memories infringe on John s thoughts Later there s an episode of a Plato like cave that brings Lennon to dark spiritual thoughts Deathhauntedness The fear that it s all going to end and the measuring out of the time that is left or might beand the stewing in the past and the sense of every time being maybe the last time and everything is charged and everything glows and the night terrors that come in a soak of sweat and the sentiment and the fear and the poison and the pain At turns turbulent laconic elliptical ancient psychotropic and sad I was not the same when I exited these mystical mythical pages There have been other animals among these rocks before He can feel them here still In the sand deeply buried their chalk white and brittle bones ElkboneWolfboneSealbone Beatlebone

Read & Download Beatlebone Ý PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Gualmente extraordinarios Con un dominio sublime del lenguaje y de los personajes Barry nos muestra al Lennon más auténtico el de humor cambiante y el ánimo atribulado y nos sumerge en la exploración del pasado propio los orígenes lo ue hemos hecho y lo ue hemos dejado por hacer. started on audio switched over to print it didn t helpAt first blush this was merely irritating in the way that Adele is irritating when singing about when we were young when she is twenty freaking five Most of the time I can forget that she is a hyperbolically successful child and focus on her vocals and turns of phrase But when every station of the radio plays her songs every 30 minutes and she must remind us that she is SO OLD and can NEVER REGAIN SO MUCH in every new single I start wanting someone to slap her And the way exhausted world weary haunted John Lennon reads here he should be well past his prime until one realizes he s thirty seven and I can t help it the eye rolls are happening And yes depression is real and IMPORTANT blah blah blah manic depressiveness as well which he appears at times to exhibit but really in the end what I m truly left with is a great big man child who can t keep his shite together and can t stay with his steadfast wife and his beautiful heart rending children because he ll go mad with the happiness of it the normalcy of it or some such soul crushing thing And this is supposed to be deep and fascinating and illuminating and what not because the man was an artistic genius Don t get me wrong I love the Beatles I think their work was truly groundbreaking and changed the course of music and rhythm and taking risks etc etc etc I don t think we could have a Thom Yorke today without a Paul McCartney and John Lennon back in the day But I m also a fan of grown ass men I can read unlikeable main characters or flawed characters or whatnot I m down with that I just read The Nest and against all expectations loved it despite yet another set of privileged white NYC ers being faced with a threat to their trust fund The difference is this those characters are flawed with purpose and they have true conseuences to their missteps and sometimes they learn Or at least the flaws are OMG to the reader and we read them as cautionary tales Here the flaws and the narcissistic journey to find himself and find his voicearthistorytruthtranscendencewhatever the eff he came out here to get away from the crowds and his wife and the baby baby no name not even my baby or anything else remotely connected here it is treated as sacred and imbued with holiness and otherworldliness and it seems this is only the case because it s JOHN LENNON GENIUS And I m just not buying it It s the same reason I don t read John Irving any he always has to have one or male always male main characters that the reader is subjected to in depth detail of their complete assholery for no other reason than to show what tormented but obviously genius artists they are I don t understand why that s lauded by critics so thoroughly and it just irked the hell out of me hereNow despite that it s still a begrudgingly good rating because the writing is fairly amazing even if it makes for difficult reading This is challenging stuff this Odd Couple road trip that never seems to progress anywhere between the stream of consciousness the dreamlike fugue state scenes 70 s primal scream sessions the conversations that are sometimes out loud sometimes internal sometimes might not actually be occurring but is as a rule never in uotation marks and even the sudden drop of the fourth wall when the author begins to speak directly to the reader about his experiences researching the book definitely my favorite part there is a lot to digest The dialogue is full of uirk and IrishLiverpoolian humor He read once that the hare augurs darkly in the Irish mythology From what he can remember there is fuck all that augurs brightly in the Irish mythologyandThe examined life turns out to be a pain in the stonesAnd finally there is a wonderful vein of the supernatural of time unhinged and familial history always at hand that feels true in the West Ireland Barry describes But I m still irked

People go strange out here John You wouldn t be the first and you wouldn t be the last This wild free wheeling tale imagines a visit by John Lennon to Dorinish island pictured above off the west coast of Ireland in 1978 Haunted by his own demons particularly the premature death of his mother Julia he intends to spend three days by himself and scream his fucking lungs out Things don t go exactly to plan For one thing John can t remember which one of the 365 islands in the bay belongs to him And the pack of hungry reporters on his tail are not helping With the assistance of local fixer Cornelius O Grady he might just reach his destination but it will involve a few diversions and disguises along the wayKevin Barry does a terrific job of depicting Lennon s fragile state overwhelmed with despair and self loathing But there is also a lightness to the story and his famous wit is delightfully represented The big hearted wise Cornelius is a wonderful creation and delivers a lot of the best lines he acts as a kind of sounding boardspirit guide for John Eccentric characters of this untamed Mayo outpost come and go throughout their adventure the face of a shady hotel proprietor is alive with with tics and nervy flutters as if there are small desperate birds trapped beneath the skin And this craggy frontier that is famed for its feral beauty becomes the uneasy backdrop to an unravelling mind Imagine the near perpetual assault of rain on a cracked windowpane down at the shivery end of that dripping boreen a country laneway or a little road dank and sodden between the whitethorn and the haw places usually possessed in the Irish mythos by savage melancholy with the veggie patch and the hedgerow wine and the rising damp and the nitty children and the freaky dogs cowering in the yard as the wind shudders their skinny flanks and the vast hysterical skies never light for long never dark for long Around two thirds of the way through Beatlebone takes an abrupt change of direction Barry begins to describe his own visit to Clew Bay while researching the story It s a risky manoeuvre uite jarring at first But I became intrigued by it as Lennon and Barry s journeys begin to coalesce and it really extends the impact of the novel I suppose this interjection is one of the reasons that the book won the Goldsmiths Prize which rewards experimental fictionIt s a brave story to write Little is really known about John Lennon at this time in his life and details of his Irish visits are thin on the ground But Barry takes us on a utterly convincing journey inside this icon s head and we begin to understand the loneliness and misery that fame has brought him I must admit that I found the prose a little overwrought at times and there were parts of the novel that didn t work for me such as a showy stream of consciousness passage towards the end But this strange trip eual parts tragic and comic is worth the effort It is a gloriously inventive tale a surreal and profound work of genius
