The Fixer characters Õ 107 Le grand roman de Bernard Malamud prix Pulitzer et National Book Award Succès dès sa parution américaine en 1966 ce texte est un récit édifiant évouant. Displacement activity is when you do stuff to avoid doing other stuff so like instead of reviewing The Fixer I have been playing scrabble with daughter we agree that ex is an allowable word and switching the tv aimlessly on to find a drama in which they are just about to cut off John Paul Getty s ear to prove to the father they have got the kid I did not care to see that and then I lectured the two cats on the importance of not chasing each other around the house at ridiculous times of the night but they were sullen and would not look me in the eye and then I read all the other reviews of The Fixer and found to my complete lack of surprise they re 99% 4 or 5 stars Hmmm The damn thing won the Pulizer and the National Book Award in 1967 at the very moment the fab four were singing that there s nowhere you can be that isn t where you re meant to be great God almighty is that really what John Lennon really sings Yes it is So try telling that blissed out truth to Yakov Bok the poor goon who gets accused of the Jewish ritual murder of a 12 year old boy and spends 3 years in increasingly miserable prison cells awaiting trial It s okay Yakov according to John Lennon that s where you re meant to be so just go with the antisemitic flowEverybody thinks this book is very profound all about the human condition and the philosophy of Spinoza and the racist state and so forth but I thought it was like being the clapper in a bell that would never stop ringing Bongggggg bonggggggg bonnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggg people are very cruel bong bongggggg the Russians really hated the Jews back then bonggggggg you can t escape your fate bonnnnnnnngggggg nobody will save you in the end bongbongbong Let s do a random core sample of this book As the day wore on he groaned often tore his hair with both fists and knocked his head repeatedly against the wall P91Manacled his legs chained nervously exhausted his body in flight though he tried with ten fingers to hold on to his mind he stood with five armed guards at his back P138The leg chains were too short for Yakov to climb the steep steps so he was seized under the arms by two of the gendarmes and dragged and pushed up P172All day th fixer walked in his cell sometimes he ran five steps three five three breaking the circuit to hurl himself against the wall or smash his fists against the metal door P232At five in the morning the day began and never ended In the early evening dark he was already lying on his mattress trying to sleep Sometimes he tried all night P274They re trying to unhinge me thought the fixer and then they ll say I went mad because I committed the crime P319He was chained to the wall again Things went badly P375So you see what I m saying what we have here is nothing but the unjust cruel sadistic sufferings of wretched Jakov the nobody for 350 pages with a few pages of uncontrolled rantings from the prison warden about how the Jews make matzos for Passover from the blood of Christian children thrown in to give the reader a break Now and again a defence attorney appears to dangle some distant fruitless hope in front of the half dead Jakov and he grasps at this faint possibility with a painful naivete The defence attorney usually commits suicide or is mysteriously drowned within a few pages Yes most of this sorry tale is based on the real case of Mendel Beilis a falsely accused Jew who remarkably was acuitted by the Christians on the jury when he finally got tried But he wasn t a free thinking non religious guy like Jakov That part is made up The wrongly accused man boy we have a lot of those in our fiction There s a listopia devoted to themhttpswwwgoodreadscomshelfshowwhich omits some of the famous off the top of my head how about Atonement The Trial The Count of Monte Cristo Caleb Williams Les Miserables well he pinched a loaf To Kill a Mockingbird Alias Grace The Green Mile Darkness at Noon and Hitchcock liked them too see The Wrong Man and Frenzy In these tales we always get the story from the poor innocent s point of view We never get to be with the perpetrators So we readers always get to feel totally righteousJonathan Safran Foer in his introduction says this is pre eminently a novel to galvanise the reader into political action When I finished reading this novel I felt castigated and inspired Grumbling about the state of the world suddenly wasn t enough And excusing myself from political activity felt wrongHe is much robust than me When I finished this novel I was thinking wow if you find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time there is really not one thing you can do about it I was actually de galvanised I was enervated The only glint of light in the whole novel was a reflection off the polished boot that was stamping down on Jakov s head It was all much too much For a much better novel about the grinding misery of prison One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by SolzhenitsynFor a novel which makes the antisemitism of The Fixer seem like a stroll in the park on a pleasant Sunday morning should you really want such a thing see The Painted Bird by Jerzy Kosinski

The Fixer characters Õ 107 Une erreur judiciaire en Russie dans la lignée de l'affaire Dreyfus Bernard Malamud nous montre les origines du mal avant le début des pogroms et l'avènemen. A huge disappointment as I d briefly christened Malamud My Favorite Author after having recently read The Assistant and several short stories The Angel Levine This is the book that won Malamud the Nobel and I had to wonder why It s ideological heavy handed a hammer on your skull bald faced allegory and miserable to read pages and pages of suffering I know there s a grand point here and it has something to do with the philosophy of Spinoza which I haven t read God s betrayal of the Jews after WWII the reordering of one s worldview after Evil has shown its face and won the attempt to locate spirituality and morality in a world without God the slow glimmer of revelation that Jewishness is not in the end really Chosenness in any sense that can improve your life I love these themes but they come across better for me in a treatment of an old Jew in New York finding God in Harlem a Jewish family trusting an untrustworthy Italian goy an encounter between spiritually and morally flawed characters from colliding cultures who will each find redemption in ways that will surprise you Malamud s other works like Flannery O Connor s embody both apostasy and a deeply religious and redemptive view of the world they are about a spirituality that needs no God I love that I know these themes are in this tome as well but I still don t get it Can anyone explain to me why The Fixer is considered Malamud s greatest work
