Summary í Moses Ascending 104 Turvy irreverent seuence of events The account of his attempts to cope with situations. Brilliantly evocative of the time and superbly written Within the stylish writing and lyrical prose there s a bitterness that lingers long after the story ends I m not sure if it s a bitterness of disillusionment the ones that will bring you down the most are your own people the same people who are as prejudiced against peoples of other colours as white man is prejudiced against black or a bitterness of the author Either way in a strange way it doesn t detract from the story call it what you will it certainly adds another flavour to the storylineIt s a story of the rise and fall of Moses a man not unaware of the struggle of black people against the establishment in the 1970s but a man who having worked slaved all his life now wants some peace and uiet Though I m not sure his fall is as much of a fall as some would argue I really enjoyed the nuanced and above all realistic attitudes that prevailed at the timeSome parts jar some characterisations don t succeed totally but all in all a thoroughly enjoyable read
