If you only read one book this year about a diminutive gimp who enjoys disemboweling women make it this one It will at least save you the bother of having to find another one And there s certainly no book uite like Blaise Cendrars Moravagine a tonally irregular provocative artifact of the 1920s French avant garde But don t be scared off by the phrase French avant garde and its omens of obfuscation and aesthetic prickliness Moravagine is without ualification a very readable book Its style is mostly conventional with a strong narrative momentum but its substance suggests an author whose powers of concentration or fortitude were limited The novel starts out apparently as a discourse on madness and disease delivered by an iconoclastic young psychiatrist who decides to release the criminally aberrant Moravagine from his confinement and accompany him on various escapades including a stint in Russian terrorism a uest for mythic treasure in the American Southwest a delirious ride down the and an apprenticeship with a drunken inventor There s not much cohesion or balance to be found here and to search for a point to all this is certainly to invite accusations of being a spoilsport but all in all Moravagine was enjoyable enough for a book about a diminutive gimp who enjoys disemboweling women And Blaise Cendrars has the rare good sense to know when enough is enough

R gold prospector and pilot He also enjoys a busy sideline in rape and murder At last the two friends return to Europe just in time for World War I when the whole world was doing a MoravagineThis new edition of Cendrars's underground classic is the first in English to include the author's afterword How I Wrote Moravagine. Courageous absurdity Audacious luster Uneuivocal bloodlust Dragging existentialism across the muddied battlefields at the heart of man s inextinguishable conflagration this book bestows the chattering of the primal inescapably intertwined with the human spirit Nihilism rants from the gutters of humanity speaking that inexcusable uncomfortable unapologetic truth The mirror reflects a monstrosity but what else was there to view but man devouring its own flesh shitting out ideals only to fertilize the destruction that lay ravaged heaping with steaming germination Yes they rebuilt the milieu but with raw inconsolable exteriors Blood barely drying This book unveils the animosity that harkens from our core as if the duality dominated our path of discovery Cendrars is almost a victim Moravagine is almost a hero The reader is most assuredly an accomplice The story begs the uestion what is at the very base of man The traveling of the two characters makes for great conflict The adventures introduce many eccentric characters His descriptive style generates energy He invites you into the madness as an accomplice or as a hostage you are not sure whether to have fun or fear for your life This book seems like it is meant for heathens perhaps this is why I enjoy it so much Certain halves of man irreconcilable Cendrars writes as if he is if to suffocate the reader in madness the reader becomes a sadomasochist in the process torturing the reader with its suppression of oxygen almost on the point of death until he releases your submerged head finally allows you to breathe oh the air is so sweet when escaping from such a dreary womb The tale has extreme contours wild unforeseen twists of tone plot The variety is uite pleasing puts on full display the author s flexibility diverse tastes There is mention of the Idiot but what of the devil the butcher the mystic the subversive the baron the lecher the committed The endless sides to the psyche of Moravagine make him an extraordinary character The contrast between the two main characters only adds to the robust flavor of this recalling This exotic flower singed by the bomb sullied by the whore s lipstick impaled by the sounds of political nonsense It pushes wisdom deep into the nether regions of your mind like a lobotomy incision Compels you to leave your comfort to venture into the very pulse of a supreme virility A potency exists exclaims wails with fright sheer bliss The psychotic cackle of someone truly free from societies boundaries from law from conscience from judgment by god beast or man truly resonates A freedom that extinguishes itself with a fury It brings to mind what society found vulgar then what is found vulgar now what is deemed obscene It s an aborted fetus sprinkled with glitter Indeed whimsical carnage bedazzled with the jewels of elegant words A diamond covered in shit The book is littered with amazing uotes insight I especially appreciated reading about his hardships in writing finalizing the book It makes me feel less guilty about my hardships in the same manner The combination of all of this made it a very enjoyable read for me Cheers to the mad

    Moravagine is one huge masturbatory celebration Cendrars’ personal exorcism into born again apogee I think Cendrars woke up one morning and he decided he’d had enough of dichotomy duality and double structure With one fell swoop of the literary sword he cut himself in two separating out the unacceptable face
