A one-time literary novelist of some respectability, now brought low by the double insult of obscurity and crippling debt, Robert G. Mehlman is a man in need of money and recognition, fast. But Mehlman's publisher is only interested in his long overdue novel, since the people don't want short stories, and his portfolio was liquidated months ago. So, it is to culinary writing that he turns. A practiced decadent, a habitual spendthrift, and a serial womanizer, he has, ostensibly, all the right qualities. But the path to fame is never a smooth one. Phantom Pain is the bitterly funny but unpublished manuscript of Mehlman's autobiography. In it, he tells the parallel stories of his decaying marriage and his puzzling affair with a woman he meets by chance and who accompanies him on the road. York City to Atlantic City where they gamble away most of Mehlman's remaining funds and then North, to Albany, where he finds unlikely salvation and the inspiration for his book, Polish-Jewish Cuisine in 69 Recipes. Framed by Mehlman's son's account of his famous father, this novel-within-a-novel is a darkly hilarious tale of a writer's fall and his subsequent rise. Phantom Pain has all the characteristic mixture of slapstick and stark despair that has made Arnon Grunberg one of the most interesting, certainly the funniest, and arguably the best Dutch writer working today.… (mais)

Robert G. Mehlman, Mitte Dreißig, steht zwischen drei Frauen und vor dem Bankrott. Galgenhumor ist seine letzte Überlebenschance. Auch dann, wenn er statt Gefühlen nur noch einen Phantomschmerz empfindet...

Deutsche Version dürfte relativ nah am Original übersetzt sein, und wenn das irgendwie bestätigt werden kann, dann kann ich getrost behaupten ich habe den Schreibstil gemocht. Inzwischen beschränke mich auf die Übersetzung, sie ist gut gelungen.

Das Leben des Autors wird von seinem Sohn durch seine Erzählung erzählt. Sein Leben ist verwirrt, also menschlich, der Autor leidensfähig und relativ aufmerksam, sensibel und charmant egozentrisch zugleich und scheinbar attraktiv, zumindest für Frauen. An Frauen mach er sein Leben fest, hangelt sich durch, und träumt von einem überzeugend gelungenem Meisterwerk. Der Welt gegenüber ist er unkonventionell halbverschlossen und gleichzeitig gierig nach Aufmerksamkeit - ein Autor halt. Arnon Grünberg gelingt es gut (vermutlich, s.o.) die Sprache des Autors einzigartig zu machen, und der Leser kann die Atmosphäre, die Ideen und die Dialoge ganz gut aufnehmen und genießen.

Mein Lieblingszitat aus dem Buch: "Wenn man Glück nicht erwarten darf, muß man sich wenigstens daran erinnern." ( )

How fair is it to judge a book according to how memorable it is?

Here is a book I read last year, and forgot to review at the time. Since then I have entirely forgotten it. Even the back cover fails to remind me. It has vanished from my memory, and to revive it I would have to start reading the book again. And even then, how far would I have to read before I remembered? A page? Ten pages? Half the book? And what kind of memory would I retrieve? A cloudy thought about how I felt when I finished the book? Some particular scene, an insignificant detail or phrase? What comprises an adequate memory of a book?

I don't read a lot of fiction by some people's standards; I try to read a book a week. That means this book is now buried by at least fifty, and possibly hundreds, of books I have read since then. I will never remember it, and -- the painful truth of the marketplace -- now I judge the book because it has failed to stay in my memory.

The editor of "Poetry" once told me he reads 60,000 poems a year. In my job, I see about that many images (paintings, visual artworks). By comparison I only read 50 or so novels every year. There isn't that much competition, and a good novel really should be able to stay in my mind, even faintly. This one did not. ( )
