    READER ½ DOC Real Life è BERKINGMAD Real LifeThere is writing so exceptional so intricately crafted that it demands reverence The intimate prose of Brandon Taylor’s exuisite debut novel Real Life offers exactly that kind of writing He writes so powerfully about so many things the perils of graduate education blackness in a predominantly white setting loneliness desire trauma need Wallace the man at the center of this novel is written with such nuance and tenderness and complexity He is closed unto himself but wanting to open to others even though the people around him may not be fully up to the task And there is a sharp undercurrent of the erotic throughout The way Taylor writes about bodies in the physical world is one of the highlights in a novel full of highlights Truly this is stunning work from a writer who wields his craft in absolutely unfor

    READER ½ DOC Real Life è BERKINGMAD Real LifeThough it pains me to write it this book and I just did not fit well together much at all I appreciate some of what it portrays the struggles of Wallace a gay black biochemistry graduate student living in the Midwest Brandon Taylor does an excellent job of showing the anger and then learned helplessness Wallace experiences due to overt and subtle racism throughout the book Wallace’s sadness – from his trauma with his family from the racism he encounters from feeling invisible and isolated in his small town – cuts deep and feels real Though also a major frustration of min

    READER ½ DOC Real Life è BERKINGMAD Real LifeBrandon Taylor’s Real Life is indisputably one of the best novels of our generation and I say this because it is true Do you know how wonderful it feels to be represented as a gay black man — and by one of our own? Next to living it is precisely the most euphoric feeling in the world and so it is with immense joy that I could be one of this book’s earliest champions Because when it comes to realizing the anxieties an

    READER ½ DOC Real Life è BERKINGMAD Real LifeNow shortlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize Better to imagine his friends happy than to see their unhappiness up close And unhappy they certainly would be – that has been the lesson this weekend hasn’t it? The misery of other people the persistence of unhappiness is perhaps all that connects them Only the prospect of greater unhappiness keeps them within the circumscribed world of graduate school I read this book due to its longlisting for the 2020 Booker Prize – and it is probably the book on the longlist that has given me the most pause for reflection at this stageOver 30 years ago I went to University – something that was completely new to me and to any of my working class family and friends I stayed for a fourth year and was expected to stay for a PhD if only to keep my brilliant brother company but I simply could not understand academia or the idea of being paid fo
