The opening of this book was a complete surprise to me as a moderately seasoned TM reader – it felt just like the start of an action movie some kind of spy thriller only infused with poetic beauty Something of this atmosphere persisted; perhaps because of Valerian the white millionaire who somehow wears an arch villain halo even when he’s being likeable I also found the dialogue sparky and often humorous the tone freuently lightSo is it a light book Noooooo of course not From the turbulent animistic gorgeous description of the island itself suffering under its colonisation the rivers and trees crying out and mourning and re making themselves stormily something deep treacherous elemental is going on If books give us help if they do than distract then they have to touch wounds dredge up the hidden speak the silencedThe disarray my soul is in now after reading this is a sublime disarray Thoughts emotions collide with force shove each other further apart making space lowering density so that I float into a state of euphoric agitation an overactive susceptibility to connection My eyes brush others on the commute with an electric jolt I hear my own heart in the hailstormEach person in this story commands love and contempt from me calls out humility and self awareness in turn Awareness of my whiteness cis woman ness ignorance and misuses of knowledge misuses of feeling This statement about beauty that rings so true comes in the context of despair At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough You don't need to photograph paint or even remember it It is enough No record of it needs to be kept and you don't need someone to share it with or tell it to When that happens — that letting go — you let go because you can my first thought was that’s why I stopped taking photographs Through the cameraWorld’s flat Circumnavigateyour experience but then I thought this insight is not meant to be an eternal truth – it is a truth of horror and mourning And I had my own secondary insight truths belong to times and states Even dreams are true while they last And do we not live in dreams and they change shape when the light changes at evening or when somebody makes you laughTaking the view of one character then another all of whom are real and alive as if TM had no choice but to write down what they did had to do after she had conjured them so marvellously into being the narration weaves a fabric so exuisite and magical that the arbitrary becomes necessary TM can remake the sacred out of dry dust and its history of painI hated myself for hating the young educated black woman Jadine I liked Son who values his South USian extended family but with deep reservations I cheered him on at times but he has many flaws even in his good parts When he thinks about the women of his hometown building things being strong and capable and thus impossible to position as inferior to men his ascription of value is ableist His passion makes him cut himself off at the root from self knowledge and the nourishment of loveThe white woman character Margaret was somewhat neglected as a child because her family assumed that having beauty she would not need character She is stereotypically afraid of Son the young beautiful black man and TM shows how the vulnerability of her racial and gendered identity is turned into a weapon against him I felt for her even though she is irritating and emotionally disturbedIn Paris Jadine stares at an African woman whose eyelashes we are told have been burned away by the power of her gaze The woman buys three eggs and aims spit at Jadine from well out of range a gesture of hatred She and her eggs reappear in a nightmare vision Jadine has in which all the other women she knows show her their breasts Both the scene of the African woman and the nightmare linger for me enigmatic searing I cannot sort them out But lately I have noticed that I can go back into old experiences and get new things out of them Someday I will figure out these scenes and find my sympathy for JadineThose carrying the frightening weight of beauty; Son Jadine and Margaret are compelling characters but the book has others – Sydney the dignified butler Ondine the expert cook both a little self righteous and snobby; Gideon the ‘yard man’ and Therese the washerwoman and helper poor folks undereducated gossip hungry generous and kind Importantly they connect to the land the land seized from the natives the land where slaves were brought the land that sustained those captives who never surrendered
