I have just finished reading Bowl of Cherries, the debut novel from nonagenarian, Oscar nominee, and Mr Magoo co creator Millard Kaufman.Kaufman is a precocious writer, unabashedly using phrases like wee beasties, and this particular tale is indeed cut from the same cloth as Catcher in the Rye In fact, given all the secrecy and reclusive nature surrounding J.D Salinger, I m going to go ahead and spin the rumor mill Millard Kaufman IS J.D Salinger.Millard also displays a mighty vocabulary I have just finished reading Bowl of Cherries, the debut novel from nonagenarian, Oscar nominee, and Mr Magoo co creator Millard Kaufman
I wanted to like this book a LOTthan I did How you can not get behind a 1st novel written by an author is his NINETIES Unfortunately, it is what it ismeaning that it s a first novel, and it shows It shows in the tenuous structure, linked only because it s all happening to the protagonist, and it shows in the manner of how the author gives equal import to every event, regardless if that event has any import to the story, and it shows in the irritating over use of language, as literat I wanted to like this book a LOTthan I did How you can not get behind a 1st novel written by an author is his NINETIES Unfortunately, it is what it ismeaning that it s a first novel, and it shows It shows in the tenuous structure, linked only because it s all happening to the protagonist, and it shows in the manner of how the author gives equal import to every event, regardless if that event has any import to the story, and it shows in the irritating over use of language, as literate words as a method of validating literacy is the clearest way to showcase a bout of amateur writing And Kaufman s use of flashbacks to establish why the lead character is in jail, in a backwards country, sentenced to a
i read this because this is the author s first work the author is in his 90 s bully for him and, truly, the publisher is to be commended for a great book design sometimes you can judge a book by its cover.slightly strange book by oddly hypnotic i couldn t stop reading it honestly, it was just a compelling read i can t even say specifically whether it was the plot or the characters that drove my interest it just kind of happened i suppose i needed to see how it was going to end.definit i read this because this is the author s first work the author is in his 90 s bully for him and, truly, the publisher is to be commended for a great book design sometimes you can judge a book by its cover.slightly strange book by oddly hypnotic i couldn t stop reading it honestly, it was just a compelling read i can t even say specifically whether it was the plot or the characters that drove my interest it
A birdie that lives inside me said to check this book out, written by quite an old man who has lived a full life I enjoyed 30% of the book, the remaining 70% reminded me why I hate gifted children, pick fights with them I always said I will continue to say unless they are in an Iraqi jail I
Don t even ask how I m reading this already Suffice it to say that, once in a while, amazing things do happen in my life When this book comes out, grab it It is so imaginatively written and intricately conceived Super, super fun and cool. i liked the part of this book where i was having trouble sleeping and i read it and i fell asleep. I read this book at the same time that I was re reading Cat s Cradle, by the sorely missed Mr Vonnegut It was actually a very bizarre experience, because the books have some fairly severe similarities in plot.1 Both narrators are scholars that are rather unimpressed with their work.2 Within the first few pages of the both books, each scholar narrator writes a letter requesting information on fictional historic characters.3 Both scholar narrators end up taking jobs highly out of their genera I read this book at the same time that I was re reading Cat s Cradle, by the sorely missed Mr Vonnegut It was actually a very bizarre experience, because the books have some fairly severe similar
I liked this book quite a bit It s very impressive for a 90 year old first time novelist At times I feel like Kaufman has a difficult time speaking in the language of youth in today s culture Judd, the protagonist, doesn t exactly talk like Juno In fact, were it not for the inclusion of the war in Iraq and a scene with a bumbling misspoken president, I would think this book could be 30 years old But, in the long run, Kaufman makes the young characters work by sticking to this same timelessn I liked this book quite a bit It s very impressive for a 90 year old first time novelist At times I feel like Kaufman has a difficult time speaking in the language of youth in today s culture Judd, the protagonist, doesn t exactly talk like Juno In fact, were it not for the inclusion of the war in Iraq and a scene with a bumbling misspoken president, I would think this book could be 30 years ol
