The Line of BeautyT de közben ironikusan szemléli nemcsak a világot de önmagát is Ahogyan Susan Sontag írja A camp a világ következetesen esztétikai érzékelése Ebben testesül meg a stílus diadala a tartalom fölött az esztétikáé a morál fölött az iróniáé a tragédia fölött Ettől kap felejthetetlen keserédes színezetet a nyolcvanas évek brit arisztokráciájának és politikai életének leírása valamint a finom lélektani érzékenységgel bemutatott homoszexuális szubkultúra amely azokban az években kényszerült először szembenézni az AIDS fenyegetésével A regény négy éven át követi a magas körökbe fokozatosan beilleszkedő ám egy kicsit mindig kilógó Nick sorsát a szerelem és a csillogás ámult felfedezésétől világa összeomlásáigA szépség vonala igazi kultuszkönyv a kortár

    Read reader Ý The Line of Beauty ☆´ Alan Hollinghurst The Line of BeautyI started this last night heading home after one of the most dreadful evenings in recent memorySo lately my life does seem like a pot of thick scalding acrid coffee; I read books in the hope that they'll help me choke it down But for some reason everything I pick up lately's been unsatisfying like skim milk or soy It might take the edge off but not nicely and with some of this stuff I think I might be better off drinking the coffee black That Martin Amis is like some synthetic creamer with an artificial flavor that's kind of alluringly disgusting I keep drinking this shit because I have to But it doesn't taste goodAnyway riding back home half drunk from a novelistically bad party I opened The Line of Beauty and started to read I'd put this on my to read list ages ago after pillaging a beloved professor's revie

    Read reader Ý The Line of Beauty ☆´ Alan Hollinghurst The Line of BeautyIt makes me angry that I don't know much about US history modern US history British history Fuggedaboutit I wish I knew about the Thatcher administration since the novel is coupled with those years as efficiently as THE HUMAN STAIN goes hand in hand with the Lewinski scandal One must know how much pathos is ingrained in these particular events from not too long agosince it adds the reuisite magic to elevate them these modern classicsIt's about gay sex drugs the 1980's financial power The politics do take second stage with grace What's not to love Insanely sexy and exuisitely old fashioned it has the clout of Henry James too it's somewhat difficult to read but that's why it's all the exuisite THE LINE OF BEAUTY has all the best of what American Bret Easton Ellis has to offer in the world of risue lit plus a distinguished intelligent language of its own a master's effortlessness with prose form I must say that politics aside the story is BRIDESHEAD REVISITED
