    A Singular Man PDF EPUB ´ A SingularKindle - singular book, A Singular epub, A Singular Man PDFThis is another book that had a profound influence on me when I was youngerJust out of interest I recently went back and read it againIt is easy to read this book as just about the content malarky high jinks sex and wealth But there is a poetic melancholia that runs underneath everything in this book I think it was the first book that resonated within me as in someone had given a name to something that I had felt at the core of me ever since I can rememberI feel a bit different these days not much though that I’ve had years to get used to it Reading it really took me back to my earlier selfThere are 2 other books by him that you could almost put in a trilogy The others areThe Beastly Beatitudes of Balthazar BA Fairy Tale of new York

    A Singular Man PDF EPUB ´ A SingularKindle - singular book, A Singular epub, A Singular Man PDFI was on the fence about including Donleavy's second novel on my 1963 reading list I guess it was seeing somewhere on the web that his first novel The Ginger Man was Hunter S Thompson's favorite book that decided me I know that does not make much sense being the raging feminist that I am but I am also a bit of an intellectual anarchist plus I don't hate men So I read A Singular Man and it was good maybe almost amazing George Smith is another character like Sebastion Dangerfeld in The Ginger Man who just can't fit in with society's expectations in terms of what makes a good man Is that the basis of my attraction to J P Donleavy Could be The misfit euationGeorge is an orphan a failed husband and father a stupendously successful business man and lonely as hell He has enemies in the business world and truthfully he is a pussy grabber I know I knowThe writing style is a bit odd Part stream of consciousness part William BurroughsHenry Miller cut up smut But it works As I followed G
