All That Man Is

SUMMARY ´ All That Man Is Ous and inarticulate shocking and despicable; vital pitiable hilarious and full of heartfelt longing And as the years chase them down the stakes become bewilderingly high in this piercing portrayal of 21st century manhood. Having finished reading this year s Man Booker shortlist I decided to go back to the one that eluded me last year I recall that at the time much of the debate was about whether such a disconnected set of stories should be regarded as a novel and having read it now I am not entirely convinced It does have some thematic unity each of the nine parts focuses on a different man in a different part of Europe struggling with a crisis of confidence and they do get progressively older as the book goes on but apart from that the stories have nothing in commonFor me the later stories were interesting Szalay is clearly a versatile writer and creates some memorable situations and the stories are funny at times but he doesn t spare his characters much sympathy I hope the title was intended to be ironic otherwise Szalay has a very bleak view of his fellow manAn interesting read possibly worthy of its shortlist place but I didn t see it deserving than that

SUMMARY ´ All That Man Is Tel – to understand just what it means to be alive here and now Tracing an arc from the spring of youth to the winter of old age All That Man Is brings these separate lives together to show us men as they are – ludicr. I found this to be an entirely uneven read the individual short stories not seeming to connect enough to be considered a novel I would rather Szalay had reversed the order the youthful protagonists of the first offering were irritatingly dull and I m sure it negatively affected my enthusiasm for the rest of the work As the stages of life progressed the people became interesting is that the point maybe I m not sure but I never felt like I discovered anything profound about human behaviour Some writers manage to develop character well within the limited framework of the short story but many of these had little depth and the often stilted conversation did not offer enough to balance it I think the author has talent that comes through but the form chosen here does not play to it I want to read a real novel by him and I intend to look at his previous writing Thank to David Szalay Random House UKVintage and Netgalley for this copy in exchange for an honest review
