    Paperback æ Utz PDF/EPUB Ø Utz PDFLiving Within the LieHow can one best deal with the reality of power particllarly power which is obviously arbitrary and tasteless as well as unjust This is an especially relevant issue during the regime of Trump and his vulgarising influence in world affairs Utz is wonderful comedic farce about how to deal with power at a personal as well as a political level not by confronting it but by treating it with utter disdainThe eponymous Utz is a Czech survivor of two world wars and a subseuent communist regime What sustains him is an aesthetic specifically his appreciation for Meissen porcelain “Wars pogroms and revo

    Paperback æ Utz PDF/EPUB Ø Utz PDFI am among other things a dealer of 19th century porcelain and some of them Meissen so this book was unusually close to my everyday life Chatwin's passages on the pleasure and insanity of collecting particularly the intense negotiation scene were some of my favorites though I don't know how well they'd translate to the collective youBut The book's treatment of Czechoslovakia is fascinating Utz himself is a pleasure of a character the book is light and funny and there's a seuence in homage to Magic Mountain that was a huge pleasure A touch OVER plotted I do

    Paperback æ Utz PDF/EPUB Ø Utz PDFI've never read anything by Bruce Chatwin before but judging from his biography he was an interesting fellow Born in 1940 he was employed by Sotheby's to work at their art department and uickly became their expert on antiue and impressionist pieces known for his ability to discern forgeries; he eventually became the director He was later hired by The Sunday Times and published articles for the magazine while traveling across the world and visiting its remote corners; he published a travel book In Patagonia and several novels Utz is the last of them published in 1988 one year before the author's death from AIDSThe eponymous Utz is Kaspar Utz a man of forgettable face but unforgettable passion for porcelain figurines Utz devoted his life to collecting his porc

    Paperback æ Utz PDF/EPUB Ø Utz PDFChatwin's sentences are as chiseled little jewels in museum cases He's part of that wonderful tradition of chilly literary craftsmanship that counts Borges Sebald and Nabokov among its membersUtz is the first of Chatwin's fiction works I've read and it bears much in common with his travel writing To be like ultra lame I would make the comparison between his prose and the Meissen porcelain he writes about but I'm not Instead I'll say that it is brilliantly deceptively simple He just says things with as straight a face as you can imagine And the effects stay with you for a long time after especially on that lonely train ride home especially on that return to an empty apartment
