The Mars Room

The Mars Room characters º 7 Er youth and her young son Jackson Inside is a new reality thousands of women hustling for the bare essentials needed to survive; the bluffing and pageantry and casual acts of violence by guards and prisoners alike; and the deadpan absurdities of institutional living which Kushner evokes with great humor and precisionStunning and unsentimental The Mars Room demonstrates new levels of mastery and depth in Kushner’s work It is audacious and tragic propulsive and yet beautifully refined As James Wood said in The New Yorke. When a friend asked me whether I liked the book I was reading I told her It s refreshing A novel about women in prison I was dead serious It was only after my friend was losing it laughing so hard that I realized how weird my comment was Laughing now too I tried to defend myself I just get tired of straight old life there s so much regular out there Can I help it if I like to read about down and outers The truth is the dark is sometimes my light I prefer rain to sun for instance A friend once read that that was a sign of mental illness Really lolYes this book was refreshing with its grit and spit edge and energy It s mostly the story about Romy who s serving a life sentence for murder It s impossible not to feel sorry for her She had a bum lawyer and a crazy long sentence and she has a 7 year old kid who she most likely will never see againOh what a rich book Everyone is so vivid and real and nothing is sugar coated The prisoners are smart whacked desperate resigned sorry tough What stood out to me was the intense camaraderie and eually intense solitudeKushner humanizes the prisoners without going overboard There are no Tony Sopranos no big time killers who we are manipulated into feeling sorry for We see how the prisoners precarious life on the outside where they were barely surviving in the underbelly of society served as a catalyst and a preview of their doomed futures Something that stuck in my mind was how adaptable the prisoners were They learned how to survive They created a tribe a microcosm of society with its own rules and routines Lots of bartering for precious goods One thing I love is the way Kushner shows us how two opposite conditions a sense of isolation and a sense of community co existed Even though this is in no way a message book I couldn t help but think about the injustices done to prisoners For example there are two transgender characters and their situation is ten times worse than others It was horrifyingOne funny thing While I was reading I realized that the tone and content reminded me a lot of The Largesse of the Sea Maiden by Denis Johnson a book I read recently and liked Turns out the author mentions Denis Johnson and his book Jesus Son his most famous book which I haven t yet read a few times in the book Pretty weird huh In fact a teacher at the prison gives Romy Jesus Son and after reading it she said I was paranoid he thought I was a no good ex junkie like the characters in the stories He said he gave it to me because it was excellent That it was one of his favorite books So it sounds like Kushner was maybe emulating one of her own favorite writers and wanted readers to check him out too And funny a complaint I had with The Largesse of the Sea Maiden applies to The Mars Room too The rich engrossing stories of far out characters somewhat interfere with the plot Both books read like a series of powerful vignettes I both liked and disliked this I loved hearing about the down and outers but I also wanted the plot to move along Sometimes the story would get disjointed because of the segues Plus there were new characters introduced late in the game Even though most of them were just passing through it often slowed me down Man I wish I weren t so picky but once I see a teensy little problem I can t un see it Two other minor complaints There was a point of view problem a couple of times which is always jolting Also there are a few yes just a few pages that seemed lecture y a side trip about rich vs poor and another about DostoevskyBut these complaints are all minor because the language is so damn rich the characters so vivid You really feel like you are sitting there with them the writer is amazingly good with prison details and the story sounds so authentic Kushner takes us into a world that most of us can t imagine she helps us imagine itReaders from San Francisco will love this book because Kushner paints a vivid picture of the city including street names district names etc It turns out that Kushner grew up in San Francisco and lived a life on the edge too In some ways she identified with her main character Romy although they were from different classesCheck out this great article on Kushner and the making of the book you must check out this particularly fantastic article in The New Yorker which talks about Kushner s unusual life and how it affected her writing The article also shows us that Kushner did her homework she got to know prisoners This makes the story that much authentichttpswwwnewyorkercommagazine20I am now officially fascinated by Kushner I must read her earlier novels I must And believe me I d sign up for her memoir in a San Francisco minute Hope someday she writes one The Latte Factor is a new reality thousands of women hustling for the bare essentials needed to survive; the bluffing and pageantry and casual acts of violence by guards and prisoners alike; and the deadpan absurdities of Yes Master The Bad Genie Series Book 2 institutional living which Kushner evokes with great humor and precisionStunning and unsentimental The Mars Room demonstrates new levels of mastery and depth The Legacies in Kushner’s work It Tikvah Means Hope is audacious and tragic propulsive and yet beautifully refined As James Wood said A Season with the Witch The Magic and Mayhem of Halloween in Salem Massachusetts in The New Yorke. When a friend asked me whether I liked the book I was reading I told her It s refreshing A novel about women The Forever War in prison I was dead serious It was only after my friend was losing Miss Julia Takes Over Miss Julia #2 it laughing so hard that I realized how weird my comment was Laughing now too I tried to defend myself I just get tired of straight old life there s so much regular out there Can I help Another Dawn it Cracking the Show if I like to read about down and outers The truth The First Mountain Man is the dark Home Wrecker is sometimes my light I prefer rain to sun for The Source instance A friend once read that that was a sign of mental The Christmas Candle illness Really lolYes this book was refreshing with 奔馬 its grit and spit edge and energy It s mostly the story about Romy who s serving a life sentence for murder It s The Wolves of Willoughby Chase impossible not to feel sorry for her She had a bum lawyer and a crazy long sentence and she has a 7 year old kid who she most likely will never see againOh what a rich book Everyone The Complete Handbook Of Novel Writing is so vivid and real and nothing Cruel Intentions Rydeville High Elite #1 is sugar coated The prisoners are smart whacked desperate resigned sorry tough What stood out to me was the The Last Juror intense camaraderie and eually Free Fall intense solitudeKushner humanizes the prisoners without going overboard There are no Tony Sopranos no big time killers who we are manipulated Все страхи мира Том 1 into feeling sorry for We see how the prisoners precarious life on the outside where they were barely surviving Computer Coding Made Easy in the underbelly of society served as a catalyst and a preview of their doomed futures Something that stuck The Third Man in my mind was how adaptable the prisoners were They learned how to survive They created a tribe a microcosm of society with Snowflakes and Wishes its own rules and routines Lots of bartering for precious goods One thing I love 2010 Odyssey Two is the way Kushner shows us how two opposite conditions a sense of Vampires in the Lemon Grove isolation and a sense of community co existed Even though this Tales of Pirx the Pilot is Training His Human Zandian Masters #3 in no way a message book I couldn t help but think about the How to Build a House injustices done to prisoners For example there are two transgender characters and their situation A Bear Named Trouble is ten times worse than others It was horrifyingOne funny thing While I was reading I realized that the tone and content reminded me a lot of The Largesse of the Sea Maiden by Denis Johnson a book I read recently and liked Turns out the author mentions Denis Johnson and his book Jesus Son his most famous book which I haven t yet read a few times Brethren in the book Pretty weird huh In fact a teacher at the prison gives Romy Jesus Son and after reading Royal Escape it to me because Here Lies Our Sovereign Lord it was excellent That Flash Flood Code Red #1 it was one of his favorite books So Complete Novels The Heart Is a Lonely HunterReflections in a Golden EyeThe Ballad of the Sad CafeThe Member of the WeddingClock Without Hands it sounds like Kushner was maybe emulating one of her own favorite writers and wanted readers to check him out too And funny a complaint I had with The Largesse of the Sea Maiden applies to The Mars Room too The rich engrossing stories of far out characters somewhat Fir introduced late Demons of Chitrakut Ramayana #3 in the game Even though most of them were just passing through Culture and Psyche Psychoanalysis and India it often slowed me down Man I wish I weren t so picky but once I see a teensy little problem I can t un see The Soldier’s Curse Monsarrat #1 it Two other minor complaints There was a point of view problem a couple of times which A Tale of Two Kitties A Magical Cats Mystery #9 is always jolting Also there are a few yes just a few pages that seemed lecture y a side trip about rich vs poor and another about DostoevskyBut these complaints are all minor because the language City is so damn rich the characters so vivid You really feel like you are sitting there with them the writer Fire and Blood is amazingly good with prison details and the story sounds so authentic Kushner takes us Slam Book Fever Sweet Valley High #48 into a world that most of us can t The Fire Starters imagine she helps us The Fire Starters imagine The Kingdom itReaders from San Francisco will love this book because Kushner paints a vivid picture of the city The War of the Ember Guardians of Ga'Hoole #15 including street names district names etc It turns out that Kushner grew up ヴァンパイア騎士 2 in San Francisco and lived a life on the edge too In some ways she Im Your Girl identified with her main character Romy although they were from different classesCheck out this great article on Kushner and the making of the book you must check out this particularly fantastic article Dark Sparkler in The New Yorker which talks about Kushner s unusual life and how Roughing It it affected her writing The article also shows us that Kushner did her homework she got to know prisoners This makes the story that much authentichttpswwwnewyorkercommagazine20I am now officially fascinated by Kushner I must read her earlier novels I must And believe me I d sign up for her memoir A Preacher's Passion in a San Francisco minute Hope someday she writes one
