Ben, In the World: The Sequel to the Fifth Child - Taschenbuch

[SR: 159828], Paperback, [EAN: 9780060934651], Harper Perennial, Harper Perennial, Book, [PU: Harper Perennial], 2001-07-24, Harper Perennial, Pub Date: 2001-07-24 Pages: 178 Language: English Publisher:. HarperCollins US In this stunningly original collection. AM Homes writes with terrifying compassion about the things that matter most Homess distinctive narrative illuminates our dreams and desires. our memories and losses . and demonstrates how extraordinary the ordinary can be. With uncanny emotional accuracy. wit. and empathy. Homes takes us places we recognize but would rather not go alone., In a 1957 short story, "The Eye of God in Paradise," Doris Lessing brought to life a disturbed and disturbing child, a "desperate, wild, suffering little creature" who bit anyone who approached him. This child haunted not only the story's protagonist but the author. She first revived him in a powerful 1988 novel, The Fifth Child, pondering this strange offspring of an otherwise idyllic middle-class family. Who, or what, was Ben? Beast, goblin, throwback, alien, or a "normal healthy fine baby"? Lessing wrestled with these questions without ever quite managing to answer them. She takes them up again, however, in Ben, in the World. Now 18, but looking 35, Ben is estranged from his family, forced to find his way in a basically hostile world. His yeti-like appearance invariably evokes fear or amusement. And his other habits (including an appetite for raw meat) hardly allow him to blend into the crowd: He would catch and eat little animals, or a bird.... Or he stood by the cow with his arm around her neck, nuzzling his face into her; and the warmth that came into him from her, and the hot sweet blasts of her breath on his arms and legs when she turned her head to sniff at him meant the safety of kindness. Or he stood leaning on a fence post staring up at the night sky, and on clear nights he sang a little grunting song to the stars, or he danced around, lifting his feet and stamping. After three fictional encounters, Lessing knows Ben well. She constantly intervenes to direct the reader's response to him, to the people who surround him, and to his (sometimes unlikely) experiences in Europe and South America. His misery and alienation remain the focus of the novel. Yet they are offset by the odd individuals who offer Ben their friendship--and finally, by his wayward quest to find people like himself. --Vicky Lebeau, 933410, Canadian, 1051190, African Canadian, 1051214, Asian Canadian, 1051242, Classics, 1051298, Collections & Readers, 1051300, Drama, 1051322, French Canadian, 1051366, History & Criticism, 1051368, Native Literature, 1051378, Poetry, 1051422, Short Stories, 1051424, Women Writers, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 2056047011, Literary, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books

Ben, in the World: The Sequel to the Fifth Child At eighteen, Ben is in the world, but not of it. He is too large, too awkward, too inhumanly made. Now estranged from his family, he must find his own path in life. From London and the south of France to Brazil and the mountains of the Andes. Ben is tossed about in a tumultuous search for his people, a reason for his being. How the world receives him, and, he fares in it will horrify and captivate until the novel´s dramatic finale.
