review The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher

The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher summary ↠ 8 A brilliant – and rather transgressive – collection of short stories from the double Man Booker Prize winning author of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the BodiesIncluding a new story The School of EnglishHilary Mantel is one of Britain’s most accomplished and acclaimed writers In these ten bracingly subversive tales all her gift. In those days the doorbell didn t ring often and if it did I would draw back into the body of the house Only at a persistent ring would I creep over the carpets and make my way to the front door with its spy hole We were big on bolts and shutters deadlocks and mortises safety chains and windows that were high and barred Through the spy hole I saw a distraught man in a crumpled silver grey suit thirties Asian He had dropped back from the door and was looking about him at the closed and locked door opposite and up the dusty marble stairs He patted his pockets took out a balled up handkerchief and rubbed it across his face He looked so fraught that his sweat could have been tears I opened the doorA dark combination of delicious gloomy short stories by Hilary Mantel All stories feature women in the main role and these are not happy stories Every story immediately plunges into a rather disturbing gloomy sad or weird uncertain situation unclear how it is going to end Easy to read most stories fascinating Really enjoyed this one The stories were already published separately over the years first one from 1993 most stories in The Guardian and The London Review of Books For those who like a disturbing bewildering read of short stories recommended First story Sorry to Disturb features a woman in an apartment in Saudi Arabia her husband stationed there for work She takes medicine clearly is not really well and somewhat depressed and one day there s a distraught man in a crumpled silver grey suit Thirties Asian ringing the doorbell And it is the start of a stalking story I read Mantel lived in Saudi Arabia also so undoubtedly her experiences sound through in this story Loved this collection of stories

The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher summary ↠ 8 S of characterisation and observation are fully engaged summoning forth the horrors so often concealed behind everyday façades Childhood cruelty is played out behind the bushes in ‘Comma’; nurses clash in ‘Harley Street’ over something than professional differences; and in the title story staying in for the plumber tu. If you re into stuff like this you can read the full reviewReality behind the surface Literature The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher by Hilary MantelThis is my first Mantel I ve been postponing reading the first two volumes of the Cromwell trilogy waiting for the third volume to come out predictably in 2016 One does not tackle a twice awarded writer with the Man Booker Prize without having everything in one big bundle to make a proper assessmentNevertheless here goes my first take on Hilary Mantel for what it s worth One of my favourite things in life is reading that truly astounding book at the right juncture in time ie a book that mysteriously echoes and enriches my current thoughts I think this was one of those imperfectperfect books There is a peculiar comfort in reading a book whose structures and operations mimic what I think literature should be all about One of the things I like the most about literature is to read it and later on write about it Literature for me is all about a set of interlocking conventions a system and how we can read this so called system into something meaningfulYou can find the rest of this review elsewhere

The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher summary ↠ 8 Rns into an ambiguous and potentially deadly waiting gameWhether set in a claustrophobic Saudi Arabian flat or on a precarious mountain road in Greece these stories share an insight into the darkest recesses of the spirit Displaying all of Mantel’s unmistakable style and wit they reveal a great writer at the peak of her powe. This started out as a 4 or perhaps even 5 star book but dwindled down to three stars in the endI love Hilary Mantel s writing I found her rather confusing in Wolf Hall even though the power of narrative could not be denied by the time I read Bring Up the Bodies I had got attuned to her peculiar way of writing and was enjoying the style Mantel uses the English language in surprising ways and her sentences sometimes move in mysterious ways though always grammatically correct Similes and idioms jump out of the pages when least expected and surprise and sometimes startle you This collection is also no exceptionThese stories are for the most part dark and dismal and attempt to portray the seething underbelly of modern society It lifts up the polished stone of our civilised world and reveals the worms and bugs crawling beneath It may put one off if one prefers pleasanter literary fare however being the twisted freak that I am thematically these were right up my street What let me down was mainly the sameness It could all be the same story humanity is a mess Yes we know it now let s move onThe title story was easily the weakest for me I am no fan of Margaret Thatcher and I feel I d not have been too disappointed if the event had really happened at the time as a leftist I was pro IRA and anti England in the early eighties during my college days I guess I was expecting the story to debate heavy political and philosophical issues but it skirted all of them and ended up as a damp suib of alternative historyThere are two stories which are autobiographical I felt Sorry to Disturb and How Shall I Know You Both were powerful in showing the author s paranoia and sickness possible hypochondriasis I felt along with her as I am also afflicted by the same demons In the first story Mantel gives a factually if not politically correct portrait of Saudi society as far as the expat is concerned the subtle racism and misogyny I know I worked there for a year In the second story her anxiety at being trapped in a dismal hotel in an unfamiliar city reminded me of the time when I had to stay a night in lonely lodge in Dehra Dun in North India with only a housekeeper cum cook cum general dogsbody for company with dogs howling through the night in the vast grounds However I think this story is laced with a bit of class contempt which jarsOf the remaining stories I enjoyed Comma and Winter Break and though not enjoyable reading The Heart Fails Without Warning was also powerful The newly added story The School of English is a worthy attempt to touch on the plight of foreign domestic workers in affluent countries though I felt that it was not very effective
