relationship with a man or woman depending on which genitals they like the shape of that is not sexual or romantic Reno fails despite the fact that she never actually hits on anyone And speaking of the Bechdel test the female characters are all either Reno bitches or skanks and if Kushner s first name was Robert he d be rightly consigned to hell by angry women readers I m not sure that Kushner herself will escape itThen there s the cliched intellectual sentiments that the poor Italian proles are welcoming and genuinely live out their political beliefs by giving Reno food for instance the value of ideas and politics in this book often boils down to whether they turn their holders into the kind of person who gives HOT young women whatever they want whereas the New York artists are too cold and detached Yes the poor are wonderful whereas the rich are unbearable That is precisely the effect of poverty on people it opens their hearts makes them generous inclines them to accept outsidersThe book s X motif is tiresome beginning with the description of a photo in which a gun barrel is one long half of the letter X in other words there is no X there at all it s just a diagonal Other examples Reno and Sandro s first date is him fingering her and then him saving a drowning man and these two events crossed to form an X and the X pinned us together Reno skis an X into a frozen pond and photographs it a man encourages characters to watch a porn movie that s Trippel X Just in case you didn t notice it s like sex and violence and art and stuff And like growing up and coming to a crossroads about this stuff And making your mark like knowing your place in the world and stuff Now reboot because there are some truly fantastic wonderful things about this book Kushner takes on the difficult task of writing a serious book about camp people The clash between the authenticity of futurismbikesspeedrevolution and the fakeness of artfulnessartirony is well drawn and not simplified there are good characters who are sincere Gianni and good characters who are ironic Ronnie A couple of examples of this opposition playing itself out Sandro chooses love suggesting that he isn t really living it whereas Reno doesn t experience love as a choice and reuires sincerity from her friendslovers Sandro plays with guns and treats them like art whereas the Autonomists use them as tools to defend themselves from fascists You get the point This is a serious timely issue that Kushner treats with great sensitivity and great intelligence There are terrific minor characters too particularly Chesil Jones notable American novelist who is pretty much embodied Mansplaining and utterly hilarious The aforementioned Ronnie who tells endless nonsense tales about himself in order to tell us the truth rather than to hide it is wonderful and very moving And so I came to the end of the book Stream of consciousness Verbless sentences and pompous Words posing as thought Individuality None Rhythm Negatively absent How much longer Time lines of one man stand only so much Revelation Sad post coital emptiness I will read everything that Kushner publishes from here out in the desperate hope that she develops into the real thing I would have felt the same way after reading say Joyce s Portrait of the Artist in 1916 another ridiculously self important Bildungsroman the ending of which When the soul of a man is born in this country there are nets flung at it to hold it back from flight You talk to me of nationality language religion I shall try to fly by those nets I ve come to read ironically just to save myself the pain of rolling my eyes too hard although when younger I found it a call to arms So I choose to read all that silliness about open absences and blah blah blah as Kushner showing us that Reno hasn t changed at all and is still just a twit whereas she Kushner has great things ahead of her Addendum I just read a review in which Kushner described one of the aims of the book to have her narrator perceived by the men and even women in the story as nothing other than a pretty little piece of tail but have the reader see her depths clearly That s a pretty great

There isn t much plot in this novel but it is a hell of storyBildungsroman of a young woman known as just Reno an art studies graduate in 1977 who dared to race her Moto Valera motorcycle at high speed velocities to create land art Land art was a traceless art created from leaving an almost invisible line in the road from surging speeds at over 110 mph Racing was drawing in time Literally and figurativelyThis era generated a seminal movement in New York where artistic expression in the subversive sect was animate inflamed ephemeral breathing a mix of temporal and performance art and the avant gardepunk scene This was also an age of conceptual art which grew out of minimalism and stressed the artist s concept rather than the object itself Time was the concept of Reno s art something to be acted upon You have time Meaning don t use it but pass through time in patience waiting for something to come Prepare for its arrival Don t rush to meet it Be a conduitI felt this to be true Some people might consider this passivity but I did not I considered it living The novel narrated by Reno is all about her observation and experiences as she comes of age in a revolutionary time She lives in a shabby run down hole in the wall in New York blank and empty as my new life with its layers upon layers of white paint like a plaster death mask over the two rooms giving them an ancient urban feeling As she gets caught up with the underground movement in the East Village called Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers and later with the Red Brigades of Rome Reno is herself a conduit for the people she meets and gets involved with such as her older rebellious boyfriend Sandro Valera son of the Fascist friendly mogul of Valera motorbikes Reno came to New York by way of Nevada eager to demonstrate her art through photography and motorbikes She s shopping for experience Sometime after a particularly moving one night stand and attempting to navigate her life and bridge her isolation and loneliness she meets sculptor Sandro Valera and his friends a group of radicals and artists who offer her exposure to working class insurrection in this mecca of individual points longings all merging into one great light pulsing mesh and you simply found your pulse your place Reno was looking for a sense of identity and she wanted enchantment Enchantment means to want something and also to know somewhere inside yourself not an obvious place that you aren t going to get it The bridge between life and art and Reno s invigorating speed of 148 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats where she went with her new friends to make land art demonstrates the crossover between gestures and reality and a liberating energy that was an acute case of the present tense Nothing mattered but the milliseconds of life at that speed On the one hand Reno seeks self sovereignty but on the other hand she inhabits a male dominated and often misogynistic landscape where men exploit women for artistic and political gain When she visits Sandro s family in Italy she is subjected to derision by Sandro s misanthropic brother and his sneering mother In another scene a male photographer asks women to punch themselves in the face until they are battered and then pose for him Reno narrates this with an unemotional but subtle raillery noting the incongruity of women on a pretense of independence She acutely observes that certain acts even as they are real are also merely gestures And in Rome the uestion of feminine mystiue versus male dominance is addressed by a Red Brigade revolutionary radio broadcaster when he states to women that Men connect you to the world but not with your own self Are women meant to speed past just a blur as Reno speculates And the I think about that line the paradox it evokesArtists dreamers terrorists comrades iconoclasts all populate this novel replete with iconic images and fallen debris in a swirl of electrical momentum New York and Rome aren t just scenic backdrops they come alive as provocateurs firebrand cities with flame throwing agitatorsKushner is a heavyweight writer a dense volatile and sensuous portraitist of the iconographic and the obscure Arch and decisive moments throughout the novel heighten the ominous tension that rumbles below the surface and the reader wholly inhabits the spaces of Reno s consciousness and those of the people she meets All you can do is involve yourself totally in your own life your own momentAnd when we feel pessimism crouching on our shoulder like a stinking vulturewe banish it we smother it with optimism We want and our want kills doom That is how we ll take the future and occupy it like an empty warehouse It s an act of love pure love It isn t prophecy It s hope Myers Briggs Typology vs
