Tsiang Å 6 Characters HT Tsiang's The Hanging on Union Suare is an absurdist comic adventure similar in plot to Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress only instead of an early modern everyman attempting to find Christian salvation in a postlapsarian world it features instead a depression era American trying to get money in downtown Manhattan

Review The Hanging on Union Suare

Review The Hanging on Union Suare Read Ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Å H.T. Tsiang H.T. Tsiang Å 6 Characters Originally self published in 1935 HT Tsiang's hallucinatory uasi experimental novel Hanging on Union Suare explores leftist politics in Depression era New York an era of union busting and food lines in an ambitious style that brilliantly blends Gertrude Stein's playful language with the political satire of Carl Sandberg's prose fables It follows. HT Tsiang s 1935 novel originally rejected by every publisher and printed by the author himself has finally gotten the Penguin Classic treatment an astounding reversal of fortune for a seminal Asian American work unlike anything you ve ever read Written almost allegorically it slips the bounds of that genre with a provocative complex approach to politics class and race that is just as relevant and hilarious today The riots desperation evictions demeaning gigwork misplaced capitalist pride socialist organizing and police infiltration in Tsiang s Union Suare are eerily similar to our Union Suare todayWhat makes this book so durable is the way it refuses to be pigeonholed young authors take note You cannot say that Tsiang is for or against communism or writing a comedy or a drama and not in a wishy washy way Rather he is deeply playfully and imaginatively thinking about the world as he sees it looking at his characters with stern unbiased affection and allowing the world its irreducible contradictions The cast may have silly names and appear to be taking roles in a didactic sermon but as you read you discover that the sermon has no answers and the final denouement is so profound and gut wrenching that it dissolves any attempt at reduction Because of all this the uestions still linger today and are just as if not urgent How we can we help the neediest What are they to do Are the pleasures our capitalist society affords inherently twisted Do they corrupt any attempt to transcend or destroy them Is there another option Is the idea of another option moot These things will stick with you during and after your travel with this gimlet eyed genius and I sincerely hope he will influence a new generation of writers to pen novels that have this kind of bone deep lucid originality and experimental fuck all

More accurately 355 starsA bizarre melange of style and form The Hanging On Union Suare is indebted primarily to socialist realismrevolutionary romanticism and agitprop drama both contemporary to Tsiang in New York where he was living as a leftist agitator and student I m not sure I d call the novel a success it is however at the very least an interesting mess of a book The plot meanders in fits and starts the characters are unsurprisingly fairly one dimensional with names like Mr Nut Mr System and Miss Digger that clue you in to what their deal is pretty uickly The main character Mr Nut is a fairly typical everyman character and Tsiang works hard to make him as broad as possible Whereas his previous books especially China Has Hands were focused on racial identification as well as class issues here Tsiang largely drops the former in favor of the latter Though its possible to read Mr Nut as a version of the author himself its probably much easier to read him as generically American and by extension presumably white Tsiang s message about class and capitalism is at the forefront of the novel and its possible he wished to avoid turning away any potentially sympathetic working class readersThe mix of humor and grotesue imagery and scenes makes for a novel that reads as modern than its 1935 publishing date A weird book its hardly a surprise that Tsiang had to self publish his books Nevertheless a partial triumph of sorts for a book its author ambitiously subtitles An American Epic
