It s good to see that Dara can work outside of overtly experimental forms, but I hope that he or she heads back to somethinginnovative next time.
My friend Karen introduced me to Goodreads I still don t fully know Goodreads, only that I really love it I just click and click and read interesting takes on all sorts of books I ve read and never will read and constantly impressed by the huge brains and senses of humor that live here So I m big time grateful for the Goodreads intro by Karen And before Goodreads, Karen introduced me to Evan Dara s first novel, THE LOST SCRAPBOOK It s hard to imagine anybody is reading this review who hasn t already read or is at least aware of TLS I asked her to send me a great book and she mailed me that Jesus I started and stopped the first twenty pages a few times It was tweaking me and I wasn t snagged Randomly, a few weeks later, I picked it up again and from page one it began to kill me And then I just kept reading until I was finished It was the right time in my life and all that, but even beyond all the me stuff, THE LOST SCRAPBOOK, page after page, produced sentences and stories and structures that delighted, absorbed and destroyed me It opened me up And ultimately it moved me immensely It changed the way I understand community , and, like all great writing, I couldn t believe the writing was so effortless and brilliant After SCRAPBOOK Dara wrote another masterpiece even it s shortcomings, for me, can t touch the way it flames called THE EASY CHAIN And now he brings us Flee I simply don t know how to put in words what makes me love this g uy s writing And I ve hung around Goodreads enough to know that there will be at least 4 other reviews of this book within a year, each of which will find great ways of describing technically what Dara does with language that I find so awe inspiring I can say this Dara s writing is electrically visceral Like when I read David Foster Wallace, I devour each sentence and can t wait for the next And no matter how smart they are being with their vocabulary, their need to be smart never for me exceeds the tone they set for the telling I get annoyed easily when reading smart books by writers who can use science metaphors to talk about anything and everything But with DFW and Evan Dara, even when I know they are desperate to impress me, I also can feel see how they are unyielding in carrying the characters forward Every inch of each syllable gives a shit about who these people are and what they are experiencing Dara makes up words at an ee cummings pace if my Goodreading skills improve, i bet i can revisit this review and give examples eventually Okay but like I said, others can much better explain what I love about his writing on that level What I want to say about his stories and Flee is a great example is how much Dara cares That is what kills me To be perfectly honest, I don t know the degree to which THE LOST SCRAPBOOK is functioning in my reading of Flee I read Flee and from the beginning can see how much the town and the people mattered to Dara, but it s hard to know how much this comes from everything he reveals in his two other books I guess I ll find out because Flee is an easier book to hand off, in terms of introducing people to Dara It s shorter, he scareful with his risks, which I don t think comes out of fear but, rather, out of a clean understanding of what this slimmer book needs to accomplish Anyway, I ll be interested if readers who start with Flee experience it as caring as I do Because Flee is also cold and unflinching Dara evokes the picture of a town running away from itself and he only gives us little gusts of warmth along the way But there is something in those warm gusts that makes all the difference for me.
Some of it is that I feelhuman when I m reading Dara There is so much loss and sadness in his writing I don t understand how it also give me actual hope Maybe because he s not hiding At all That could be it I feelhuman but that means feelingsadness and joy He doesn t hide from all of the possibilities of who we are.
He doesn t hide He s a brilliant writer And he s found a new way for me, at least to voice something that s essential Flee is like each of his books in the way he tells the story through a scattering of randomesque voices Most of the talking is done in first person by people whom he doesn t name And you begin in the middle of their comments and they are very quickly interrupted by other strangers Sometimes the interrupter continues the story from her perspective and often they quickly jut it in a new direction This is Dara s way of giving a large and disparate and complex group of people a voice One voice All three of his books do it And I ve never experienced it before as a reader It s like you are walking down a street full of divergent groups of people excitedly talking about the same thing You catch wisps of conversation and slowly build a picture of who this place is And that s uniquely Dara, I think places are whos In Flee the town is is called Anderberg but is clearly Burlington, VT It is such a common cliche to say that in a movie or a book the setting is a main character Dara isn t interested in the setting as main character cliche because he obviously believes very deeply that locations places communities are active and actual presences Andthe only constant theme in all three books is that meaning only happens via a complicated placement of opposites He makes this theme fun and exciting and dramatic but his images are constantly those of the way a meaning is inherently composed of the way in which it is also intrinsically meaningful as its supposed opposite Again, in the future, I ll include some of his phenomenal sentences that do this so breezily I think that like any other writer who is doing something very unconventional, it mostly comes down to extremely arbitrary factors as to how much the writing transfixes you If somebody is not excited by Evan Dara, I certainly don t think it is because they are missing something No way That s part of what I find so gripping why does Flee never let go of ME Why do I suddenly cry and laugh reading sentences that aren t obviously sad or funny There is something about me in this guy s writing and vica versa Needless to say, I couldn t be happier that Evan Dara refuses to be known But, equally, I wish his books were Since the writer chose a masculine first name, I ll just stay with he as I refer to h er in this review.
I click on finished but am I Is anyone ever finished w a book like this, like did I even start Further cacophonous jump cut schizoid dialogo humph jibber jabber and like, where does that leave you but a small burg in Vermont where the gettin seems good but why, why and how to, but no, no two ways about it just glean the hip bits, carry water chop wood ED you re anything but limp biscuit specially when it cums to Laura Linney and fair trade dreams Your stories are your stories but are they And then you leave off.
I ve been very much enjoying my review slump of recent reading But I want to duck back into it just for a moment to declaim the greatness of Evan Dara There s really just one other contemporary author I compare him with, Jeff Bursey Both authors do that kind of political fiction which, to my best understanding, is mostly pressed to the side by family stuff Franzen et al and or individualist first person pov stuff But here, in Dara and Bursey, we get a political fiction of a community television does it with SoA and Deadwood and The Wire And in both, quite coincidentally, but with form following content, we get a thoroughly orally oriented language, a technic grounded in Gaddis But maybe too, this community oriented politics, even as it s perhaps so uncommon in today s north american fiction, traces back to pre WWII american fictions, those perhaps of Lewis s Main Street and the like Incidentally, I go to India for something similar, Rao s Kanthapura But whatever the aboutness here, do not miss Dara he s doing a fiction kind of thing that we needof Criminally under read.
06AUG13 First reading in progress So far so good The melange of voices and the skill with which Dara deploys them is very Lost Scrapbook Unlike its two predecessors, Flee is relatively short 239 pages and has chapters They re numbered not with integers but with five digit figures that appear to be a countdown of sorts sequential censuses of a dying town Like what Detroit s numbers might look like in a decade or two if things don t turn around I posted some notes and miscellany and will continue to do so as the read progresses.
09AUG13 Done and WHEW So many questions Went right back and re read several early chapters that mentioned characters who were figurants then but became muchlater on.
Definitelyto come here and on my own page.

a That Crafty Kid From Rutland Day pp16 17 Another treat from the mind of Evan Dara that seemed to come out of nowhere Aurora Dara appears to do zero PR for his books beyond an email blast to previous customers , Flee finds the author in breezy, digestible form While it doesn t reach the peaks of The Lost Scrapbook or The Easy Chain, I can t help but highly recommend it Anyone familiar with Dara s style will find much to love here the chorus of many, many voices that diligently work through accretion to create the hilarious or sad depictions of the everyday that typify his works, the breakneck speed of his prose, the sheer readability of the text My preference goes to TLS and TEC simply because in those books Dara is able to cut loose by virtue of what he sets out to achieve Flee, with its constrained length and relatively narrow narrative conceit, feels a bit stifled to me comparatively I m not sure Dara necessarily NEEDS to write tomes, but at least so far he has impressed me most when he allows himself to stretch out.
Dystopia fiction is adored but played out We know its landmarks and trajectories We ride the well worn ruts of its trails.
While not dystopian fiction per se, Flee parallels the genre and ups the ante by making it refreshing, compelling, and once again disquieting Flee revolves around the unexplained collapse of a community, Anderberg, Vermont The inertia that holds it and its peoples lives together has been suspended Little things once taken for granted the touchstones of the everyday wither, whether stable schools, predictable stores, and neighbors, acquaintances, and friends, etc One calls a coworker only to get no answer they fled One goes to a store to find it closed owner fled employees followed One tries to go to class school s shut down City hall becomes a hollow fortress In short, characters learn that they have no reason to expect the predictable parameters of their pasts to continue in their presents and futures Anderberg becomes a zombie town complete with lonely holdouts and zombies the shims.
By bringing the scope to this quotidian level, Dara makes a new, chilling dystopia For the residents who remain while other flee, it s like they re watching their solipsistic visions of the world rapidly decompose, implode All that remains are the shadows of memories, and the dissonance and doubt Existential questions underscore it all, like, what constitutes a community What constitutes an identity How does someone derive purpose The voices Dara summons from this world add dimension and gravity We feel their engagement and panic, their denial, conspiracy theories, acceptance, and attempts at progress forward vs surrender to stagnation.
Progress forward appears to be a moral of the story While systems are robust in the grand scheme of things they adjust to equilibrium eventually they do not guarantee the protection of the individual in a crisis or its wake All one can do is Flee or stand firm If one stands firm, he can only continue forward by accepting everything in gratitude and without attachment hence the penultimate chapter where Marcus goes part Messiah, part I am Legend.
As a bit of trivia exhibition, note that Dara begins each chapter with a population count If every chapter is treated the same i.
, no compensation is made for their heterogeneous time periods , Anderberg s population looks like the following All of the above might sound a bit glowing, but a number of things do not work well in Flee Sometimes the literary device ness of characters is too transparent e.
, Ian, JFK, et al The Marcus chapter, though pleasant and interesting, ultimately falls short It feels half fleshed out I wonder if Dara realized that the cost of making it whole was prohibitive The town itself never felt like a community Granted, we start at the beginning of the exodus, but by not establishing the stakes, I didn t really feel the characters senses of loss Well, I did, but only after suspending my disbelief Sometimes language and plot points were rough.
These demerits didn t earn Flee its three star rating It earns its rating because it lacks that sort of ineffable x factor that makes a book feel agonizingly alive Ultimately, my standards arecapricious and inscrutable than I otherwise pretend.
And for a bit of Dara speculation, I wouldn t be surprised if he had some sort of background in economics my training and occupation not an advanced degree or anything, but perhaps an undergraduate minor He casually yet sensibly employs its concepts, e.
, pareto efficiency, supply and demand, regression analysis, etc Compare this to the likes of, say, DFW, who despite his attempts to portray the contrary, only had a basic understanding of economics see, e.
, his not infrequent invoking of elasticity Dara does not come across as a tourist to this world.
But enough The spiral swells TheI say, theI see I havetosay If I do not go now, I will be submerged in useless meanings, I will never be able to outrun the wordsOther people will probably say smart things about this book This is Evan Dara s third novel, he wrote two others that fluctuate between being available and then commanding fairly steep prices in the used book world They are all available right now from www.
com, you may want to get your hands on them Dara is possibly the epitome of the cult novelist People in the know generally love him, like really really love him, but he s generally completely unknown to most people How do I know about him Because of Karen who discovered his first novel before I met her, and then when the first novel was going out of print she forced me to buy one of the remaining copies we had of the book in the store When she forced me to buy the book I thought she was a little off her rocker The book looked kind of interesting, but it also looked like a self published nightmare If you are around books enough you might know what I mean, certain self published books just scream self published.
William vollmann s name was on the cover though, he had chosen the novel for the National Fiction Competition That helped with selling me on the book but I was still a little eh about the whole thing But I do trust Karen, maybe not so much Vollmann, who I really have no barometer of knowing what his recommendations are like and by this point I d been burned bored bythan one DFW blurbed book, so But I bought it, read it and wrote a review for it that is shorter than I think the opening paragraph of this review That was back in the day when I wasn t reviewing for anyone at all on goodreads, I was just saying things to myself and I guess to Karen Not like these stellar performances I put on now to entertain and delight the masses So continuing on my trend this summer, I have once again read a new book by an author I really like, while still having not read the author s previous novel that I have owned and could have read for years but just haven t Compared to Dara s other novels this is a short one It s 239 pages, and it s about a small city dying The city is called Anderburg, it s in Vermont and has many streets and parks in common with the not fictional city of Burlington I haven t been in Burlington in let s say 15 years, so I don t know what it s like there these days, but the dying city of the book didn t feel like the fairly vibrant city of the 90 s The mass Fleeing of the residents didn t feel quite right to me either The Vermont I knew were people who seemed to just want to build a wall around their state and be totally self sufficient, the people who said fuck you to the federal government and their money when the government tried to tell them to lower their speed limits and get rid of some of the damn boulders all along their highways The city did feel like it s sister city across Lake Champlain, the depressing home of my alma mater, Plattsburgh, NY Which also shares some of the street names, is sometimes referred to as P burgh, like the city in the novel is called A burg and which is a city that could conceivably completely die if the college ever went belly up In my six on and off years of living in Plattsburgh I lived in a city of bleak depression economically, not to be confused with my state of mind at times Right before I started attending the school the Air Force base had been decommissioned Soon after I started attending the school the relative value of the US Dollar lost it s strength to the Canadian Dollar delivering a one two punch to two of the three major economic forces in town, the military people and the Canadians who would come to the malls to get good deals because of the voodoo of currency rates What was left when I was there were a couple of malls, tons of liquor stores and a downtown stricken with a blight of empty store front, unoccupancy or else bars that opened at night Plattsburgh also had the phenomena noted in this book Obscene traffic Traffic that got worse as jobs decreased and there seemed to really be no where to go Where all these people were going I have no idea, but they were going, orlike mostly sitting traffic I don t think that Dara means for the novel to be Plattsburgh, but it does feel an awful lot like Plattsburgh, it feels like something that could conceivably happen there, that s if the school shut down which is one of the high points of the book, the fairly absurd and very DFW like manner that the the school shuts down and precipitates the majority of the town packing up and leaving for better places The book is written mainly in a chorus of voices of the people in Anderburg Sometimes they are snippets of conversations, sometimes they are just staccato shots of standalone dialogue followed by other voices of everyday life saying the sorts of things that people say to one another Sometimes the book does break into atraditional narrative, mostly following two characters and their idealistic attempts to make their city a better place At a surface level the book reads like aaccessible version of JR by Gaddis, onlyaccessible though because it s fairly obvious that you don t generally need to know who is saying what in this book, you aren t trying to piece together a story from unattributed dialogue, here the story just unfolds through the voices, and the characters who matter you are quite aware that you are now watching and listening to them The book is kind of depressing, it s about a town dying A home for forty something thousand people shriveling up, become unable to support and sustain the people who relied on it for their existence It s the worst case scenario of towns eaten up by big stores, downtowns that couldn t compete with the internet, with dehumanized logics dictating company policies and then calling it the will of the marketplace It hits home, living in a basically dead town for much of the 90 s, seeing my hometown turned into a superficial facade of prosperity and overtaken by big stores, by policies in the company I work for devaluing employees and debasing quality in the name of words that don t even make any sense It s an articulate portrait of a lot things that depress the shit out of me if I think about It s pretty fucking great He stands, brushes crumbs from his pants, pulls a fist of things from his pockets From this jumble he pulls four dollars and forty cents quarter, dime, nickel and places same on the table He turns to leave But then he hitches, turns back, looks down takes the fort cents up again levering each coin one by one before pivoting, again, to go He starts to walk away, slopes his head, stops, turns back to the table, puts the dime and nickel once again down.
The quarter remains within his fist, pinched between second and third fingers Outside, he puts the coin back into his left front pocket, walks away.
I love that there is such a person in the world as Evan Dara or at least someone pretending to be Evan Dara for the sake of challenging what we believe to be literature I love the ideas in Flee, at least the ones I could pick up, better than the execution, which is somewhat different from The Lost Scrapbook, in which the execution was absolutely mesmerizing But then again, why bother having an actual opinion of an Evan Dara novel after reading it only once Until or perhaps upon the event of such a re read, I would be embarrassed to have given this less than perfect adoration Meanwhile, what is the population of your town are you paying attention
