    Hardcover ✓ First Person PDF Ì first free, person free, First Person MOBIRichard Flanagan has written a smart comic and intelligent satirical fable for our era set in Australia To some extent it is a blend of fact and fiction that draws on the author's well known experience of ghost writing a memoir for a con man in the 1990s Flanagan mocks and incisively skewers the publishing industry Kif Kehlmann is an unpublished Tasmanian writer in dire financial straits His wife Suzy is expecting twins and they already have a child He finds himself in Melbourne having a 10 000 contract to ghost write the memoir of the notorious con man and fraudster Siegfried Heidl Ziggy within six weeks The two men find themselves dependent on each other with their fates intertwined Heidl proves to be the slipperiest of customers disinclined to offer any personal information throwing out the odd bones that prove to be n

    Hardcover ✓ First Person PDF Ì first free, person free, First Person MOBIOne of those books you can easily expect to appear on a literary prize list beautiful prose many pages spent pondering the thoughts and beliefs of the main character and a lot going on that I did not understandNot understanding parts of it is I am sure my problem not the author's Richard Flanagan's writing is flawless and frequently very beautiful His characters are deep and cleverly written but also very unpleasant with very little to redeem any of them I debated long and hard how to rate this book and decided to go down the middle with three stars It is without doubt a very good book but one I could not personally enjoy

    Hardcover ✓ First Person PDF Ì first free, person free, First Person MOBII received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I loved the premise for this a penniless writer is promised 10000 to ghost write the memoirs of a notorious criminal in six weeks Part thriller part literary introspective study and autobiography what follows was an interesting story but ultimately it just didn't work for me I think the main issue I found was the writing itself There's no denying it's well written but at times I struggled with the slow p

    Hardcover ✓ First Person PDF Ì first free, person free, First Person MOBIAn intriguing hybrid of satire and counterfactual autobiography that turns out to be both dark and surprisingly profound while remaining something of a page turnerThe central character Kif Kehlmann is like the young Flanagan a Tasmanian writer struggling to fund his first novel with casual work and support a young family He is offered a job as a ghost writer for a notorious con man Siegfried Heidl a lightly fictionalised caricature of John Friedrich whose autobiography was ghosted by the young Flanagan Heidl is a pathological liar and Kehlmann gradually finds himself inhabited by his personality without making much progress on a coherent story The first part of the story builds to a melodramatic climax view spoilerin which Heidl

    Hardcover ✓ First Person PDF Ì first free, person free, First Person MOBIThis is a beautifully written book My copy is dog eared countless times at pages where the prose took my breath away At the same time I found it quite a bleak harrowing read The descent into madness The poverty The loss of love It is a painful parable for the age of Trump and reality TV

    Hardcover ✓ First Person PDF Ì first free, person free, First Person MOBIRichard Flanagan was the 2014 winner of the Booker Prize for The Narrow Road to the Deep North a book inspired by his own father’s harrowing experiences but one on which I had mixed views concerned at characters that seem to barely rise above cliché and a topic that really did nothing that hasn’t already been done in the “Bridge over the River Kwai but impressed with the writing style and its thoughtful examination of topics such as goodevil self belief and delusion and the stories people tell themselves the contrast between one’s public image and private image the impossibility of really knowing anotherFlanagan’s Wikipedia entry states Flanagan wrote four non fiction works before moving to fiction one of these was an autobiography of 'Australia's greatest con man' John Friedrich which Flanagan ghost wrote in six weeks to make money to write his first

    Hardcover ✓ First Person PDF Ì first free, person free, First Person MOBI “It’s a very strange time where fictions are presented to us as realities where reality seems fictional and it seems to me there’s no better way to write about that than to write a story about what lies are what fiction is and to use the form of the novel to do it”This is how Richard Flanagan himself sums up what his new novel is about I might add that apart from being an allegory on the age of post truth First Person is also a book about the nature of evil and how we get drawn to it Flanagan's protagonist Kif Kehlmann is an aspiring writer living in a downtrodden neighborhood in Tasmania and trying to make ends meet as an unskilled worker He is already the father of young Bo and his wife is now pregnant with twins which puts additional financial pressure on him When Kehlmann is offered to ghostwrite the aut
