    Richard Flanagan has written a smart, comic and intelligent satirical fable for our era, set in Australia To some extent it is a blend of fact and fiction that draws on the author s well known experience of ghost writing a memoir for a con man in the 1990s Flanagan mocks and incisively skewers the publishing industry Kif Kehlmann is an unpublished Tasmanian writer in dire financial straits His wife, Suzy, is expecting twins and they alread

    One of those books you can easily expect to appear on a literary prize list beautiful prose, many pages spent pondering the thoughts and beliefs of the main character and a lot going on that I did not understand Not understanding parts of it is, I am sure, my problem not the author s Richard Flanagan s writing is flawless and frequently very beautiful His characters are deep and cleverly written but also very unpleasant with very little to redeem

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I loved the premise for this a penniless writer is promised 10,000 to ghost write the memoirs of a notorious criminal in six weeks Part thriller, part literary introspective study and autobiography, what follows was an interesting story but ultimately it just didn t work for me I think the main issue I found was the writing itself There s no denying it s well written, but at times I struggled

    This is a beautifully written book My copy is dog eared countless times at pages where the prose took my breath away At the same time, I found it quite a bleak, harrowing read The descent into madness The poverty The loss of love It is a painful parable for the age of Trump and reality TV.

    It s a very strange time where fictions are presented to us as realities, where reality seems fictional, and it seems to me there s no better way to write about that than to write a story about what lies are, what fiction is, and to use the form of the novel to do it This is how Richard Flanagan himself sums up what his new novel is about I might add that apart from being an allegory on the age of post truth, First Person is also a book about the nature of evil, and how

    Richard Flanagan was the 2014 winner of the Booker Prize for The Narrow Road to the Deep North, a book inspired by his own father s harrowing experiences, but one on which I had mixed views, concerned at characters that seem to barely rise above clichand a topic that really did nothing that hasn t already been done in the Bridge over the River Kwai but impressed with the writing style and its thoughtful examination of topics such as good evil self belief and delusion and the sto

    If you ve never read a Richard Flanagan book, you might be inclined to think First Person is some kind of thriller, based on the blurb alone It isn t, rather it is very literary by which I mean it consists mainly of a lot of introspection by the main character, Kif Kehlmann, who is himself a Flanagan proxy The story of real life con man John Friedman, fictionalised here as Ziggy Heidl, is truly astonishing and a different writer might have made of it a madcap Fargo style black comedy In

    I always seem to read this author as apart of a bookclub Exquisite writing, perfectly plotted and asks the questions about what is fiction and what is fact A little slow in some places but should be apart of most Australian fiction awards.

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.Seriously good writing, but a little like wading through treacle at times.Well This was an interesting and highly unusual book Not quite sure it was my cup of tea but it was fascinating nonetheless.The story follows Kif a struggling writer from Tasmania, with a family to support who has somehow found himself...

    Australian men do man things The men are so manly with their man problems Occasionally there is an incidental woman who is hugely pregnant like a whale, or has an evilly lipsticked mouth, or who likes to take selfies But what of the MEN How will they manage to create REAL ART when also struggling with all the pressures of being men It s so hard One day they will die, they will cease to be there is even an actual dead parrot in this novel if you want to make the obvious joke Haha just kid Australian men do man
