    READ Os Cus de Judas [E–pub New] (Os Cus de Judas) By António Lobo Antunes Antonio Lobo Antunes’ The Land at the End of the World may well be the best war novel written by a leftist psychiatrist of the Freudian school I suppose that sounds a bit snarky or narrow but it’s not meant to be a criticism but a snapshot of what to expect The unnamed narrator like Antunes was a medic during Portugal’s war in Angola He is haunted by his experience and his memories nine years later are constantly circling ba

It borders so close to that upper most standard of excellence teases at it steps across the line and then takes a step back Ultimately the struggle between stars doesn't matter I guess though I labour over it a decent amount while reading a book It is how you explain those stars that matter and it is those words that I struggle to place into nearly sensible sentences over and over

What I dislike most about this book is that I dislike it I closed the cover with an alarmingly low empathy level and for reasons that may appear petty and pedantic The vague non spoiler sketch a semi autobiographical young Portuguese doctor goes off to war in Angola and comes home to find that he cannot shrug off the horrors and simply continue prosaic modern lifeThis is material that should move me But it doesn t And here s why I couldn t stomach the non stop gratuitous and sometimes totally inane similes and metaphors There are certain horrific descriptions of the war and of alienation that were potent But then a dogpile of metaphors would emerge like a teeming mass of ants like a mass avian migration whose flapping vitality wouldand I would either start to fall asleep or look ahead for the chapter break I just couldn t get immersed I m sorry This is supposed to be a masterpiece but I don t see it I admit that I haven t fought in a war So maybe that s it But I don t know because I ve read other books about war that have torn me to shreds And I don t think it s the Englishing either because some of the figurative comparisons were uite good But it was a veritable hot dog eating contest And not in a good way I would support my claims with some excerpts but I don t have the stomach for it25 stars rounding up so I don t get shanked

In her translator s introduction Margaret Jull Costa notes that this works original Portuguese title was Os cus de Judas which roughly translated pretty much means Judas s Assholes Costa didn t go with this translation I can t imagine her publishers would have been thrilled with it and I think that it s sort of a shame The Land at the End of the World suggests something fantastical or whimsical Lobo Antunes s book isn t either of these things It s nasty and cruel dirty and sexualized Judas s Assholes would have been much fitting I m still bouncing back and forth on what rating I d like to give this book I am very glad I read it I also have very ambivalent feelings about it I thought I d read it in a few days but it took me weeks largely thanks to the fact that it was immensely difficult for me to read than a few pages in a sitting There were parts that drew me in and that were beautiful others parts were upsetting and repulsive There were parts I genuinely hated but I think I was supposed to hate them So it s hard for me to assign a rating 3 stars in a lot of ways is a bit of a coward s choice on my part Let s start with the writing and Antunes s style since it encapsulates a lot about how I feel towards this work as a whole It can be breathtaking and beautiful There are similes and metaphors absolutely everywhere all over the pages like Antunes is frantically reaching around in a wild jazz solo or modern dance in order to desperately convey his point It s busy and overwhelming at points but it s fascinating his writing is filled with banana trees with large fringed leaves like the wings of decaying archangels bats flying in stumbling spirals like torn umbrellas in the wind and thunderstorms advanced in dark billows towards the barracks rolling in the enormous pianos of the clouds down the stairways of the air It s beautiful and surprising just like good writing and good poetry should be I read a review that described this as a prose poem and I think that s apt For me though sometimes Antunes got a bit too self indulgent with his metaphors one that particularly stuck with me and made me roll my eyes was about El Greco greyounds that joined in melancholy coitus and fixed us with the painfully imploring eyes of dying nuns For every metaphor that s surprising and beautiful there is usually one that trends towards the over the top Individual mileage on this may vary of course And while some of the language seemed overwrought to me I still sort of admire it to a certain extent I feel like Antunes metaphor izes with wild abandon throughout the whole book Some of them land and some of them don t but there s something to be said for the style and bravery of just going for it I also really admired Antunes s depiction of his nameless narrator s experience in war The novel is framed around the narrator monologuing to a woman in a bar flashing back and forth between his childhood his time as a medical in the Portuguese colonial war in Angola and his time settling back in or not to society in Lisbon The way the story flits around gives the narrative the ability to recreate a sense of instability lack of purpose and the scattershot uality of traumatic memories All that said the main reason that I can t bring myself to give it than 3 stars is that it s really hard to read this book as a woman I think a lot of this is intentional But it s still rather brutal Every woman who appears is silent and ruthlessly sexualized Women are either raped objectified or function solely as objects of sexual solace for the narrator It s absolutely exhausting and upsetting I think that Antunes was attempting to make a point here that war is dehumanizing to those who participate in it and that they then dehumanize in turn but we are so inextricably trapped in the narrators head that it just plays like an emotional horror show It made it a difficult work to emotionally navigate and I found myself despite all the horrors he d faced losing sympathy for the narrator At one point he view spoileressentially rapes a girl for looking younger and innocent than he d originally thought hide spoiler

The Portuguese VietnamWhile the USA was engaged during the 1960 s and 70 s in its insane war in Vietnam Portugal was digging proportionately even deeper graves in its African colony of Angola one and one half million men went to Africa from a population of ten million almost 80000 died on all sides Somewhat lower tech than the American effort the Portuguese troops went out not by jet plane but by ship This was hardly a morale building experience they travelled in the same cargo holds that carried the coffins which would bring many of them home Lobo Antunes was a doctor conscripted to help reduce the number of coffins neededMilitary discipline doesn t mitigate the emotional immaturity frustration and fear of young soldiers it condenses extreme emotions for periodic explosive release The explosions as we know may continue for a life time Alcohol and prescription drug abuse seem to be popular longer term dysfunctions but the immediate effect of putting lethal weapons in the hands of half cooked troubled adults is a casual unpredictable inhumanity and the occasional massacre and of course a chronic inability to talk coherently about the experience even if that s all they do talk about It s called post traumatic stress disorderLobo Antunes s voice it can hardly be called a protagonist since it doesn t even have a name has PTSD He can t shut up about what he s gone through except to comment on what he s going through at the moment as a conseuence Guilt alternates with the effects of military irrationality is it the guerrillas who are murdering us or is it Lisbon or is it the Americans the Russians the Chinese or the whole fucking lot of them determined to screw us good and proper in the name of certain interests that escape me now Is there anyone who can explain this absurdity He understandably avoids mention of the secret police the PIDE which had power than the army and was dangerous than the enemyThey return unfit for normal life as they always do because war makes everything relationships possessions personal history cheap disposable and temporary The young soldiers shipwreck victims are shunted into islands of despair military hospitals of a uality and capability of the 19th century However for the Portuguese returning from Angola as undoubtedly for those Americans returning from Vietnam those French from Algeria those Dutch from Indonesia and those Russians from Afghanistan among so many others it is the malign indifference of one s fellow citizens that is the final crushing blow The shock of loss is far profound than the relief of safety We spent twenty seven months together in the asshole of the world twenty seven months of anguish and death in the sands of Eastern Angolawe ate the same homesickness the same shit the same fear and yet it took us just five minutes to say goodbye a handshake a pat on the back a vague embrace and then bent under the weight of our baggage we were gone out through the main gate and off into the civilian whirlwind of the cityWould that young men realise that this is inevitable and refuse the commands of the old men who hide it from them Only then might the old men stop
