Humoristisch en creatief, maar het lezen zal wel even voortduren. 302 blz. dacht ik even tussendoor te doen..

Het is amusant, maar tussen gein van heden en verleden hoor je de ernst. Sjetl. Je komt steeds meer te weten. schrijnend met mooie momenten, relativering, banaliteiten, mazzel, wijsheden. Wat is leven anders?

It's amusing, but between gein (banter) of past and present you hear the seriousness. Sjetl. You find out more and more. poignant with beautiful moments, perspectives, banalities, mazzel, wisdom. What else is life?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2ShZG2vdT8 : (my extraction)
Zoektocht van drie dagen is als poging autobiografisch, zelf niks gevonden. . ontwerp/ draft. Geschreven in 10 weken in Praag, een paar jaar een edible versie geschaafd. 'my experiences took the form of a book'. 'I never had the idea that it was a story i had to tell'. - it was an activity I had to do, like the beaver had to use his teeth to keep them short'. In hoge concentratie, in heel alles opnemend bewustzijn, alles was belangrijk. ( creatief heb ik heel soms gehad, overal gedachten over, wat je maar ziet. zich toe gezet) . Dit is i.p.v. vertellen aan vrienden.
Commitment to the vulnerable.
Twee perspectieven, er is geen definitieve versie, waarheid. Ieder ziet anders. Je kunt ook dingen op verschillende manieren beschrijven. Dat wat er letterlijk gebeurt en wat dat teweeg brengt in jezelf, 2e is dit boek. Retelling, more than reference story.
Titel:- op het jaarfeest , everybody is proclaiming his existance by love then, in Trachimbrod verlicht als Dublin op St. Patricks day.
- Illumination: uncovering Obscure -> 'Clear , in a way that happens but the clarity is not what we thought it was.
Dedication: Simply and Impossibly': simpel, jouw levensverhaal geven. His genetic code equivalent of this creative version. Impossible omdat woorden daar toch tekort schieten. 'I will never get there' (dat wat je voor ogen staat met kunst bereiken, lukt niet, altijd er dichterbij proberen te komen). Impossble: omdat deel van familie aan wie hij het wil geven niet meer leeft; als dankbaarheid van ene generatie aan de ander.
Lezers herkennen zich in het verhaal, in hoofdpersonages. Beller, 35-jarige afro-america,n ook: de wereld is voor J Safran Foer kleiner geworden.
Jonathan Safran Foer begins as hero and Alex as looser, in the end omgekeerd. Nothing is fixed. Ook Jew gentile niet. Mensen/ plaatsen veranderen ook van naam. en dan wat blurbers.
