A couple of weeks ago Not and I were sitting in the Hôtel des Bergues the posh five star hotel round the corner where our friend Sheridan had kindly invited us for afternoon tea as a birthday present She also gave me an advance copy of this book It's just like that scene in the last volume of Min kamp I said Have you noticed that everyone here is a character in a novel It turned out that the fifth member of the party a Canadian who was on a brief visit to Geneva was another hardcore Knausgård fan We spent some time swapping theories was it appropriate to call Knausgård the Norwegian Proust how much of the story was actually true did it matter With that starting point it was impossible to read Wish You Were Here without freuently making mental comparisons with Knausgård It's easy to see why he's become the most talked about novelist of our time Knausgård than anyone even than Proust is focused on what it means to be a writer Once novels about being a novelist were dry and abstract but since the rise of the internet we've all become novelists We're all blogging Goodreading Instagramming and Facebooking turning our lives into text and trying to reassure ourselves that this is a worthwhile activity Most of the time it clearly isn't The average post is lazy and boring dishing out obviously untrue nonsense about our perfect relationships and cute cats But every now and then we come across a genius like Knausgård who tells it like it is how he's disloyal bad and plain crazy doing things he knows perfectly well he shouldn't because one day he'll be able to convert them into art or perhaps just because he's that kind of person You can see why millions of people love Knausgård and a good many hate him He says all the things you're unwilling to say out loud even to yourself; he makes some readers feel they're not alone and others wish they were Sheridan isn't as good as Knausgård and I think it's unlikely that she'll ever be compared to Hitler or sued by a close relative in a high profile case that will transfix a whole country for several months But hey this is her first novel and I think she's made a pretty good start I felt genuinely shocked and disuieted several times and laughed at uite a few passages in between What can you ask for I can't wait for the next one

Review Wish You Were Here

Wish You Were HereBle adventurer Reeling from the devastating collapse of her marriage to the man she thought was the love of her life after a late night enjoying smashing all her china a little too much Sheridan Jobbins decides she needs to do something drastic to save her sanity Her solution is to buy a hot red car and drive across America Hopelessly unprepared and heartbroken she sets out. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed Wish You Were Here by Sheridan Jobbins Ok I'm telling you I enjoyed it a lot The book was written as an anniversay present to her now husband Scott a man I fell a little bit in love with as I read their story As far as presents go I'd have to say I've never heard of a better one and as far as third dates go this one takes the cakeWhen we meet Sheridan she's trying to get over the shock of her failed marriage They'd been best of friends and remained friends after the marriage broke down but whereas he moved on Sheridan was unable to She seemed unwilling and unable to put the relationship behind her She tries and sometimes feels she's succeeded but other times she's overcome by anger and overwhelming grief So she decides to run away putting her life on hold and heading off to America for a coast to coast adventure Personally I'm not much into driving holidays but I so wished I was there Without having to pack a thing her writing activated all my senses and took me on her journey of discovery Through her words I explored the American landscape enjoyed encounters with the locals I tagged along as she re discovered herself and lived vicariously as she moved beyond her grief and towards new love I laughed out loud at her uirky so very Aussie sense of humour and agonised on her behalf when she occasionally flipped out when words were used like weapons in a seeming attempt to sabotage this new relationship or when her temper flared out of control I loved her honesty about these and so many other aspects of her life I couldn't help smiling at this passage describing her sometimes erratic behaviour How reassuring to find something that was bedrock stable while I ping ponged from Nutsville to Love and back several times a dayThere's so much to commend in this book and it covers so much territory both literally and figuratively It's touching it's funny it encourages adventure inspires action and has a gorgeous romance to cap it all off Next time I travel I simply must have a mnemonic recording of my own it was a stroke of genius I loved it and pretty much everything about this book A really enjoyable read Happy anniversay Scott and Sheridan May your life continue to be filled with love Many thanks to Hachette Australia and NetGalley for the opportunity of reading this book in exchange for an honest review It was a real pleasure
