My first John Burnside book He is an extremely talented writer and write novels poems and memoirs This book had an interesting story and some beautifully crafted poetic sentences It was a little repetitive in places but I think this effect mirrored the way memory works going over and over an incident or event The effect it had on this reader is not really knowing what happened and what was memory and creative memory The book is about the power of stories and storytelling and myth and folklore and how these can inform a troubled mind The last couple of pages are beautiful and packed with truth Here is an example I just need to know where everything is and then when I am sure to make a little space for the mystery There are several ideas in this novel merit discussion Perhaps as the light falls with a dram in hand and the company of a few good friends

A Summer of Drowning is John Burnside s eighth novel Although it sounded interesting to me I initially decided to skip it because the previous Burnside novels I d read I was less than taken with Then I read an article in which Burnside stated that he himself was less than thrilled with his own early novels and that he recognized their mistakes Okay I decided maybe it was time I gave John Burnside another chance A Summer of Drowning is set on the small Arctic island of Kval ya a place of snow and sullen light by winter and bird calls and wind sifted murmurs by summer It s narrated in retrospect by Liv the teenaged daughter of Angelika Rossdale a celebrated landscape painter from OsloLiv and Angelika live together in a grey sunlit house above the meadows and Angelika who is famously reclusive and who didn t need other people rarely emerges from her studio unless it s for dinner or Saturday morning coffee or to garden Her painting she says is her life and her removal from the world she insists is deliberate To turn away from the busy world is interesting up to a pointbut to refuse oneself is exemplary To become nothing to remove yourself from the frame that is the highest form of art Initially one believes Angelika but as the reader gets deeper into the book he or she has to wonder if Angelika has indeed removed herself from the frame or if she s only paying lip service to this idealLiv however who has no choice in being removed from the frame who has no vocation not much ambition and on that remote northern island none of the interests that preoccupy most girls her age Almost by default Liv has become a watcher one of God s spies I simply look out she says over the meadows over the water and I pay attention The one person on Kval ya Liv pays attention to is Kyrre Opdahl Angelika and Liv s elderly neighbor Kyrre lives on the island with his boxes of beautiful junk and tells Liv Norse folktales the old stories one revolving around the huldra a forest creature who lures both men and boys to their death When two of her classmates Mats and Harald Sigfridsson drown within days of each other Liv begins to wonder if another classmate Maia a dark eyed mocking girl with a loose tomboy walk who had always been an outsider could be the huldra Maia was after all seen with both boys shortly before they drowned and both boys drowned on clear still nights As Liv puts it The meadows were uiet the sky was clear and the water was stillThere was no reason for any of them to die Another person Liv watches is Englishman Martin Crosbie around thirtysensitive or delicatea worried spirit Crosbie has rented Kyrre s boathouse for the entire summer and to Liv he s an odd man telling little seemingly insignificant lies and going about always distracted as if drunk Liv describes him as elsewhere in another world or another time In addition Crosbie seems to be watching Liv as much as Liv is watching him Crosbie as Liv will learn has his secrets secrets she was not meant to discoverIt s not a spoiler to tell you that before this extraordinary summer is over Kyrre Maia and Martin Crosbie will disappear as well Despite the fact that I said it s not a spoiler I can hear the groans now Since Liv is telling the story in retrospect from vantage point of ten years the reader learns about the disappearances in the first seven pages And knowing about them doesn t spoil the story tension but adds to it instead We begin to feel claustrophobic trapped on the island just as Liv is trapped And like Liv we begin to sense the impending horror of that summer the summer when the light was that still silvery white gloaming that makes everything spectralghost birds hanging on the air In between observing those around her Liv as can be seen from the above is a keen observer of the natural world She tells the reader about a new sweetness of grasses and wildflowers and mountain water gathering in the meadows and pockets of darkness on garden walls From its opening pages A Summer of Drowning is a hypnotic book written in beautiful hypnotic prose I wasn t surprised at that Burnside is also a talented poet a Whitbread winner and his prose as well has been praised for its crystalline clarity and poetic cadence This is very evident in this lyrically written book Listen to Liv and she imagines Maia Maia floating in the Sound somewhere downshore and a stolen boat drifting on the tide miles away empty barely moving on water that to all appearances was as still and unbroken as the surface of an empty mirrorEven those who don t know much about poetry and I am certainly no poet myself though I do love reading poetry will notice the long vowels and the repeated consonant sounds The beauty of Burnside s prose actually adds to the feeling of menace and impending doom present everywhere in this book This is a book about the shadowland between waking and dreams between reality and myth and Burnside s limpid prose is perfect for showcasing that place of mysteryNaturally A Summer of Drowning is a very atmospheric book but what exactly that atmosphere might be is difficult to pin down At times this is a gorgeous book filled with all the strange light and wild beauty of the remote North At other times it s sinister as just about everyone watches everyone else and everyone it seems has something to hide And there are dips into the supernatural but dips only This isn t a book about the supernatural and when it comes to that subject Burnside writes with an extraordinarily light touch The book is definitely not gimmickly As one reads on past the first third or so one comes to realize that this is also a book about delusion and self delusion and about the untrustworthiness of believing what we see with our own eyes Once the reader realizes that the central subject of the book isn t the mystery of what happened to Mats and Harald and Kyrre and Maia and even Martin Crosbie but Liv herself a note of hysteria or perhaps paranoia has crept into the narrative and the book s title becomes highly symbolicAnd about that title It s a summer of drowning not the summer of drowning Was there than one Is this something that happens with any degree of regularity on Kval ya Is there something something important that Liv is holding back For Liv herself tells us that there are two kinds of seeing One is about finding what we have always been told is there while the other is about going out alone in the world like a boy going out into the fields or along the shore a boy who finds that something creeps in at the edge of his vision Liv is a well drawn character but some readers I think will find it difficult to identify with her She s not your average girl or what you might think of as your average girl And she s not nearly as serious as one might think with all the disappearing and drowning going on around her At an art gallery showing she says It was immediately obvious it was one of those exhibitions that seek to inform and at the same time provoke serious thinking about what art is all about and I couldn t be bothered with that All of the characters are a bit mysterious but in this book that doesn t euate to sketchily drawn These characters serve this novel best by not revealing everything about themselves by not letting us get to know them better than they know themselvesSo did I think the book was perfect Almost but not uite I think it s weighed down and a book like this should feel weightless by a subplot involving Liv s travel writer father in England a man she s never seen We realize that Liv is finally being given a chance to define herself to frame her own life in a way her mother never offered her But the subplot though beautifully written and interesting at least at first lacks any emotional payoff and Liv fails to obtain the answers she seeksIn the end A Summer of Drowning might be one of those books that raises uestions than it answers It is deliberately ambiguous and this ambiguity is disturbing and haunting This is a book that grabs hold of a reader and won t let go weeks months maybe years after the last page has been turned I just loved it455Recommended To readers of literary fiction who don t reuire every loose end to be tied upNote I know some readers who believe the cover of this book while attractive is far too dark I agree and I want to point out that the actual cover is far darker than the photo depicts The book itself is dark but prospective readers must be able to see the scene depicted on the cover to be enticed to pick the book up and page through it I hope publishers take Julian Barnes words to heart about cover art and that readers will see a surge in uality cover art in the years to come
