    Kindle Kevin Davey ¸ ¸ Playing Possum PDF ñ playing epub, possum epub, Playing Possum PDFEPUBWhen this book was shortlisted for the Goldsmith's Prize back in September very few people had heard of the book the author or the publisher Since then it has also been longlisted for the Republic of Consciousness Prize and has gained a reputation as one of the best experimental novels of the year It is playful surreal poetic and richly allusive and I suspect that I would have gained even from it if I had a greater familiarity with TS EliotThe book centres on an American poet Thomas Stern who shares many of Eliot's characteristics and might be seen as an alter ego constructed from clues in the poems who kills his wife and flees heading

    Kindle Kevin Davey ¸ ¸ Playing Possum PDF ñ playing epub, possum epub, Playing Possum PDFEPUBPlaying Possum should be a book that makes me feel small and ignorant It’s only after I finished the novel that I discovered that it’s main character an American poet who murders his wife is actually a version of TS Eliot I’m simply not well read enough to have joined those dots For one up until 10 minutes ago I had no idea what the T and S stood for now I know There are other literary references ranging from Christie to Joyce Ulysses was published in 1922 and so was The Waste Land by TS Eliot The year is so important for the fiction that was published – and the reaction to that fiction such as Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway 1925 that earlier this year Bill Goldstein wrote a whole book about it The World Broke In TwoAlthough I didn’t pick these nods and winks some obvious than others I still really enjoyed Playing Possum With its fluid sense of time merging 1922 with 2012 as if to imply that the thin
