    (KINDLE) Jernigan By David Gates summary Jernigan If you took John Updike and Richard Ford and gave them each a serious drinking problem then they would've probably come up with this bleak portrait of an American Father on the edge At times shocking and touching it nevertheless keeps you reading due to Gate's keen prose and razor sharp eye for detail After finishing it you'll see why it was shortlisted for the Pulitzer

    (KINDLE) Jernigan By David Gates review ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ö David Gates summary Jernigan like being buttonholed by a slobbery drunk who pisses his pants is self obsessed who treats everyone with disdain and cynicism including especially those he sleeps with and those closest to him Might not sound great but I enjoyed every word Peter Jernigan is kind of fun in a terribly un PC way

summary Jernigan

free read Jernigan í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Articular descenso a los infiernos a la vez ue ofrece una desternillante disección del egoísmo la indiferencia y la crueldad ue se hallan en el fondo de cada uno de nosotros Jernigan publicada en 1991 y finalista del Premio Pulitzer es la primera y más aclamada novela de David Gates y su protagonista se ha convertido en uno de los antihéroes clásicos de la literatura norteamericana reciente. Masie Cochran Associate Editor Tin House Books Recently at the urging of Nanci McCloskey I began reading David Gates Jernigan She tossed the book to me while packing for a business trip I skimmed the jacket copy my eyes widening Geez Nanc this is super dark and they kind of give it away in the description What startled me was something like this chainsaw that he turns with disastrous conseuences on his wife his teenaged son his dangerously vulnerable mistress and not least of all on himself About forty pages in I started wondering how Gates was going to pull it off The novel was uiet thoughtful and dark but not shred your loved ones to pieces dark I flipped the book over and read carefully Peter Jernigan who views the world with ferocious intelligence grim rapture and a chainsaw wit that he turns with disastrous conseuences on his wife his teenaged son his dangerously vulnerable mistress and not least of all on himself This novel is a bravura performance a funny scary mesmerizing study of a man walking off the edge with his eyes wide open wisecracking all the way Jernigan is all of these things Chainsaw or not it is one of the best books I ve read in a long time

Ultimately this novel is a pretty fast read and fairly entertaining But it has a lot of bad writing and a number of poor decisions by its author David GatesDefine bad writing Sure It s when the narrator s insecurity leads him to be needlessly intrusive Here are some examples of bad writing in Jernigan I mean at least I d found out that this was a neighborhood where blacks weren t moving in however you were supposed to feel about that Uh oh no cultural diversity Though in fact all I d really found out was that this was a neighborhood where people didn t want blacks moving in However you were supposed to feel about that Uh oh be coming after me next page 86See a secure narrator would either write the first part of these thoughts and allow the reader to decide what they meant or he d leave them out altogether Instead we get Jernigan feinting at racial commentary just in time to lecture us about how we should feel about such commentary It s petty and safe rebellion and it s uite contrary to what Gates seems to want us to think he s up to with this novelHere s some bad writing He picked up his slice and blew at the molten cheese creeping over the point Good I said You want the rest of it Looks like you got outside of yours pretty fast He shook his head no I took another bite It either was or wasn t good page 93First of all the nature of pizza hasn t a thing to do with this story Since the story has but 237 pages in it one would assume there was no good reason to give two or three of those pages to something as irrelevant as pizzaBut of course there s a reason It s to show the reader how clever the author is When one reads about molten cheese he can t help but think I wonder how long Gates carried that little nugget around in his writing journalAnd then there s the it either was or wasn t good line If this is to show indecision on the narrator s part it s unnecessary After all by this point in the book the narrator has already overwhelmed readers with his indecisiveness No this line is one clever bit of intrusion on the author s part one place of refuge for the insecure writer Even the folks who claimed to hate my novel had to admit I m talentedAll that written Jernigan will appeal to a certain group of readers Those who are desperate to see Frederick Exley s achievement in impostors may even think they ve found Exley in Gates s first novel Unfortunately they have not
