    EBOOK Karoo AUTHOR Steve Tesich With this book you will hear or read rather the phrase lost classic or shamefully under read Both are 100% accurate The book is so funny that you don't realize how deep you get into the life of Saul Karoo and by the time you do its too late The pathos and emotion are so true and odd that the book is going to resonate with you long after you read it Saul Karoo is a mixture in all the best ways of John Self from Martin Amis' Mone

    EBOOK Karoo AUTHOR Steve Tesich Free download ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ì Steve Tesich characters Karoo AUTHOR Steve Tesich A fascinating disturbing book about a script re writer who appears to be bent on self destruction Tesich paints a picture of a deeply flawed man who drives away those who are close to himhis friends his wife and his adopted son He is rarely a likeable man although there are times when he evokes sympathy He had me rooting for him but knowing the outcome would in all probability be less than positive

    Steve Tesich ì 9 Free read EBOOK Karoo AUTHOR Steve Tesich Probably one of the best examples of a book that I should have given up on rather than sticking with as in reading it I've talked myself into the fact that I'm in a reading slump Fawned over by three guests on a radio show and by an in person book club member that I was talking to I thought that I would get through this novel in days three weeks later I finally finished and the greatest emotion I feel is relief Hopeful

    EBOOK Karoo AUTHOR Steve Tesich Very well written Tesich introduces you to the central character who is an interesting mix of successful mainstream and bohemian Without spoiling the plot your attitude changes towards this character as a drama at a distance unfolds And yes as it happens you're right at the heart of it Well investing in early scene setting to get to know the central character

Karoo AUTHOR Steve Tesich Free read Ì 109 Ler an unknown actress whom he has spotted in a small scene In fact Karoo becomes convinced that she is the mother of his adopted son Billy and he becomes determined to track her downKaroo finds Leila in Venice Beach where she's one of thousands of Hollywood hopefuls working as a waitress and haunted by the memory of the baby she gave up for adoption Karoo falls in love with her and in the grip of his newfound devotion uses every cheap screenwriter's trick to change Houseman's poignant masterpiece into an outrageous comedy that will make Leila a star And he plans to unite the long lost mother and child at the film's premiere But Billy not knowing that. Saul Karoo is despite his lack of talent a successful script doctor He destroys movies he knows to be masterpieces He destroys personal relationships He is vain cowardly capricious and monumentally selfish He s stubborn when there s no reason to be and appallingly weak willed when there s every reason to hold the line Given a choice between the rational and the irrational he usually chooses the latter and then spends several pages justifying his perverse behaviour to himself He is a man with every advantage that is nonetheless intent on self destructionIn the face of these many flaws we re supposed to be carried away by Saul s wit But I wasn t Sure Tesich strings words together well and we find anecdotes and uirky observations in good proportion But if I m to laugh at a character as he makes mountains out of molehills I need to identify with the annoyance he feels towards those molehills I didn t By page 150 I still hadn t found in Saul a single redeeming feature If he really was furiously funny I might well forgive him his many flaws but despite all the gush on my edition s back cover his jokes just aren t that great

Karoo AUTHOR Steve Tesich Free read Ì 109 Leila is his mother also falls for her and she for him The triangle ends in an auto accident with Karoo driving in which Billy and Leila are killed and the recut film becomes a huge success Devastated by the personal disaster he has helped to create Karoo winds up being hired by Cromwell to transform a journalistic expose of his own tragic machinations into a screenplaySteve Tesich has grounded his story in the highly recognizable world of New York in the late eighties a milieu of unscrupulous West Coast producers dry cleaning divorce and fantasies of escape Karoo is a haunting highly human deliciously realistic novel of decline fall and rejuvenation. This novel desperately needed to have an editor hack away at least half of it It needs an editor like the great script doctor Karoo to save it from itselfIs it shallow of me to expect a novel to be entertaining With just about every page I read I looked ahead to the many many pages I still had to read to finish this thing Part 1Imagine that instead of an agoraphobic little creep Marcel Proust had been a chain smoking pant shitting lecherous drunk and you will start to get Karoo and its author Steve Tesich The first one hundred pages of exposition and introduction were way too much for my tastes and I think the story would benefit immensely with at least 150 fewer pages If you cut out just the parts about Karoo smoking I d have my 150 page edit I get it he smokes a lot Part 2 I agonized over the unthinkable act I was prepared to commit in order to have a happy ending for Leila and Billy Billy and Leila would have figured out long ago that something was up All she had to do was ask his age and his birthday to throw up a red flag And so I can t help but wonder as we continue our discussion that if Cromwell is evil as I know that he is if he is the most evil man I know as I know him to be what then does that make me Part 3 I speed read the last 100 pages or so I couldn t wait to be done with it The end part about Ulysses is just terrible and stupid

Karoo AUTHOR Steve Tesich Free read Ì 109 Saul Karoo is a memorable creation He is a successful Hollywood script doctor a fixer of flawed films He is fifty overweight a heavy drinker and chain smoker He is at an age when things break down but he has no health insurance His separation from his wife Dinah has become another form of marriage His relationship with his son Billy a college student is one of pure avoidance He cannot free himself from the grip of the powerful producer Jay Cromwell who wants him to recut the last great film of the legendary director Arthur Houseman and make it commercial After seeing the film Karoo considers refusing the job But he soon becomes obsessed with Leila Mil. It s a pity A pity that Steve Tesich didn t live longer didn t write novels Instead he spent his time writing screenplays or fixing up the screenplays that other people had written poorly Movies that whatever their worth lack the majesty of a novel A novel like KarooThe same thing happened to John Fante After publishing three little books three time capsules of forever genius books that were little because like a grain of sand dropped into a sea they made no splash he went to Hollywood a place where they pay you to write or not to write or to rewrite or to renotwrite A good job for a family man A bad job for an artist for a forever makerTsk tsk That s all I can say Karoo is nearly perfect I should have five Karoos ten Karoos to read But I don t thanks to Hollywood and it s easy lucre Nearly perfect If I may taunt Tesich s ghost with my opinions and a list of minor grieviencesThe last chapter The last ten pages of the book What you see is the apex the money shot the big reveal before the fade to black Cut it End with the words And so he beganAnd though there are many many many brilliant lines and one liners and turns of phrases occasionally there are the lazy throways Lines like couldn t believe her eyes and waited impatiently and she has the audience in the palm of her hand These just sully the picture like soot on a window pane Lose them The first chapter Lose that one too Tear it out and tear it up Make it disappear It is a tad intimidating and from my vantage point it is pointless unlike the rest of the novel which is as full of points as is one of Seurat s circus scenes Somebody search this man s desk if his desk is still intact Maybe he left something cooking in there Maybe it s finally ready to eat If not s the pity
