At the age of 25 Lucy Irvine answered an ad for a yearlong spot as a wife on a desert island She and her partner Gerald Kingsland who was twice her age were to play at being survivors they would build shelters fish and forage for food and hopefully make the use of some seeds be completely on their own Once you accept that they re both rather batshit crazy it s an enthralling read Perhaps a bit reminiscent of Legacy of LunaThere are two main things to consider the survival aspect and their complex relationship but those two factors have a relationship of their own Initially survival is a serious worry They have provisions but only enough for a month or so as the goal is to be reliant on the island One felt that permanently hungry as we were if the sight of a peculiar fish actually put us off there must be something sinister about it 33 There s freshwater but not much of it from the beginning it has to be carefully rationed and as the seasons change that rationing gets and strict They lose drastic amounts of weight Irvine talks of being so malnourished that part of her rectum fell out repeatedly I suppose because there wasn t the muscle to hold everything in place And they constantly suffered from sores and the like as coral made the seawater poisonous and turned small cuts into raw festering woundsBut the story takes a turn when locals from nearby islands start dropping in The locals don t really understand what Irvine and Kingsland are doing who can blame them and seeing the state the castaways are in start bringing provisions of rice flour beans They drop off extra materials to help Irvine and Kingsland build a shelter and in fact assist in building that shelter When they learn that Kingsland knows engines they bring over engines for him to repair perhaps inevitably they invite Kingsland and then both Kingsland and Irvine on excursions off the island The direction of the year changes irrevocablyThis is perhaps where things get most interesting in terms of the relationship Although Irvine says very little about her life before or after the island it is clear from the get go that it is the island not Kingsland that interests her They are married but only because the Australian government wouldn t approve their plan otherwise and Kingsland is far interested in a physical relationship than Irvine is He is also it seems far less interested in day to day practicalities Irvine wants to build a shelter and stockpile wood for the monsoon season and plan ahead but Kingsland is interested in the immediate More critically while Irvine mourns the loss of their isolated life when the locals start coming by Kingsland thrives on being back with others working on things other than water and foodKingsland wrote his own memoir of the experience I haven t read it and am not likely to as it s not readily available locally and anyway I m not sure I d want to but I d imagine that he paints a very different picture of their time and their roles and so on Irvine is mostly affectionate when she talks about him and generally not offended by his crassness butbut There s this pervading sense that she s always trying to please him feeling guilty because she doesn t want to sleep with him and he definitely believes she should feel guilty for that or plan to stay with him after the year is out ditto It was clear from the start that I was not going to get away lightly with having committed the sin of falling in love with the idea of an island and not with G 36 She talks of the uncomfortable situation of him having fallen in love with her while she fell in love with the island but than that it feels like she fell in love with the island and he fell in love with the idea of being in love with her They re never ideal partners but that s made and obvious as time goes on But if a woman will not share her body with a man how can she expect him to share her infatuation with a few grains of sand and a lot of sea and sky 71 72I find Kingsland or G as Irvine refers to him to be at best a terrible boor You don t fuck and what s the good of a c that doesn t fuck 193 It s not that I m asking you to be grateful Lu When someone says that you know that that is precisely what they are asking you to be 221 Later I was to discover how profound an effect being called a c for a year had on my feelings of worth as a woman Because it was all I could really be to G in the end I felt that it was all I really was 262 Again I only have Irvine s perspective here but my overall impression is that it was in many ways an incredible year but that Irvine would have been much happier with a different partnerIt s a complicated story for a multitude of reasons Hard to imagine Irvine manages to pack in an incredible amount of detail though and a longing for the hot sunny island she ultimately left behind It s a love story but not a conventional one Vom Klassenkampf zur Volksgemeinschaft Sozialpolitik im Dritten Reich
