Reading Fleur Jaeggy for the first time after a couple of mediocre litfic novels was like having a glass of ice cold water thrown in my face on a hot day Invigorating refreshing and something of a relief if not exactly what you would describe as pleasantJaeggy writes in staccato sentences and writes of the indistinctly strange Her prose is the kind that forces you to sit up straight and pay attention A single paragraph can contain so much that you will needwant to read it five times before moving on to the next This is partly because details sometimes seem to be mentioned randomly or related in the wrong order but read again and it will become clear every word is placed deliberately With unnerving precisionThis collection reads like a classic a book that could just have easily been written in the 19th century as today Something about it put me in mind of Arthur Koestler s Darkness at Noon though I couldn t uite tell you what Some of Jaeggy s premises such as that of the sinister The Aviary a ueasy story which culminates in a young man imprisoning his wife in a birdcage reminded me of The Doll s Alphabet by Camilla GrudovaIn the second story Negde I highlighted a sentence because I loved it but now I come to look at it again I realise it s also a perfect description of the book itself There is calm a vague stealthy disuietude some void I can t stop thinking about that phrase some void How perfect is that You need to be prepared to grapple with some void in order to read Jaeggy You will navigate eerie stasis and sense horror lurking between the lines For me this was a thrilling experience Certainly an author I will be returning to Favourite stories I Am the Brother of XX The Last of the Line Agnes The Aviary Tropics Names Favourite lines and passagesAnd now there is the nightmare the one and only nightmare of living I Am the Brother of XX I am twenty five I have done what was according to my sister important But when I was eight I was a poet and a writer And no one had told me that it was important to write Since then I have only done things that were important according to my sister studying graduating succeeding in life In the street I look at people passing by while I should be going to talk to someone about a job I tell myself that every one of them perhaps is succeeding in life I Am the Brother of XX Winter the real season of the year As in Saint Petersburg The wide river lay white and frozen like a continent s tongue lapsed into silence So he wrote An arcane hypoborean breeze on the branches of trees Iosif can t help living in watery places He is like a sailor He plays with the lunatic wind star that pushes him towards the river He liked the blue uniforms of navy officers and their coats with double rows of gold buttons Like avenues at night their lights receding Negde Caspar is seized by nostalgia Nostalgia for the children in the portrait The food repels him he throws it to the dogs He fills a glass with port It is night The Last of the Line There is a stillness in the room a sound from afar almost a primary sound that wants to be listened to as silence The Last of the Line I bought little orchid plants They came from Holland From South America I had seen them in the Mediterranean Growing in the damp White with purple eyelets Rosy pale an evil expression Acidulous Yellow They last a long time Not much earth Not much nourishment They reawaken in the dark at night Avid for company When they wilt they become small skulls in tuxedos Tiny night birds They look at me I look at them Agnes The vegetation reeked of an eerie maleficent calm a brutal calm Agnes The girl saw her thoughts on the window panes like insects swollen with blood on the walls of a room The Heir She smiled sweetly It is not clear to whom But from one window insects flew The Visitor What names do nameless things have And what are they And if they had a name would that alone make them recognisable Osmosis The flush of spring the scent was nauseating tainted and too strong The solemn and glorious instant just before dissolution In a field he saw flowers with small purple wounds The Perfect Choice I was always struck by her ineluctable delicacy of spirit if one might call it that in her way of approaching others especially friends As though she knew with the precision of a mathematician all the nuances that might hurt or wound The Salt Water House Memories are not properly a past The Salt Water House TinyLetter Twitter Instagram Tumblr
