Outline Author Rachel Cusk Free read ¿ 2 A woman writer goes to Athens in the height of summer to teach a writing course Though her own circumstances remain indistinct she becomes the audience to a chain of narratives as the people she meets tell her one after another the stories of their livesBeginning with the neighbouring passenger on the flight out and his tales of fast boa. Reading Outline is like spying on an author in the process of auditioning characters for a future novel In other words it is indeed an outline an outline for a work that it still shadowy in the writer s mind Cusk interviews her potential characters and lets them tell her emotionally pivotal stories about themselves She makes no other dramatic demands of them They become like a Greek chorus of voices without a play A writer unnamed until the penultimate chapter travels to Athens to host a writing workshop Each chapter either recounts a conversation with someone she meets or a group discussion with her writing class If Cusk has an agenda a unifying theme to these conversations it is the shredding of romantic illusion Its principal agents sexual attraction and parenthood are both mercilessly called to account Cusk it becomes clear had had enough of illusion The narrator bitter herself extols the virtues of passivity as a philosophy of life And by extension it s as if Cusk is bored with creating the illusions necessary to write novels She s like the magician who can no longer be bothered to go through the charade of masking the tricks She s a writer letting us know how bored she is with the theatre of constructing novels However boredom is never going to be the best mainspring inspiration for the creation of a novel There wasn t enough contrast in the tone or thrust of the voices for me There was a sense everyone was hired to conform to a preconceived and adamant argument And as such there was no sense of discovery in the novel Beneath the surface of this novel is a current of unresolved bitterness belonging you sense to the author herself One of the novel s central premises is that every relationship is doomed to fail to become little than a distorting outline or as one character puts it there s a disgust that exists indelibly between men and women and that you are always trying to purge with what you call frankness Frankly that s a melodramatic statement to me a distortion of perspective caused by unresolved bitterness And this bitterness left in its pure state prevents any possibility of evolution Thus the novel ends as it begins with little sense of a meaningful journey with little resolution In short it s a novel that s much easier to admire than to love It s very well written with some truly brilliant observations it s intelligent it holds its focus It s also a novel that arouses the suspicion now and again that there might be a conceit involved the presence of the emperor s new clothes factor I enjoyed reading it at the same time I have a feeling I ll remember nothing about it six months from now
