The Parisian or Al Barisi Free download Ë 105 Nd a newly tumultuous Paris He discovers that everything is fragile love turns to loss friends become enemies and everyone is looking for a place to belongIsabella Hammad delicately unpicks the tangled politics and personal tragedies of a turbulent era – the Pales. Now as I expected longlisted for the 2020 Desmond Elliott Prize for debut fiction Midhat was only half listening because he was thinking about the way his own charade might be told after he was dead when he no longer held the reins on his memories and they galloped off into the motley thoughts and imaginations of others Unlike Midhat we know the answer to this uestion His great grandaughter Isabella bought up on family stories of her great grandfather Midhat who returned to the Palestinian town of Nablus after a period studying in France during World War I affected a Parisien style of dress the most recurrent of which featured a mysterious French woman has written this lengthy novel to tell his love story and alongside and through it a sprawling multi character 23 year history of the Palestinian independence movements up to the mid 1930sThe book s style seems to owe much to a 19th Century tradition this is a novel which other than for a brief flurry towards the end when we are thrust into the middle of guerilla warfare between the Palestinian freedom fighters and the British Mandate army takes place primarily in an interior and in at many crucial junctures epistolary rather than physical space It is also a novel of exile exile which is both physical and mental Midhat himself is always on the fringes of the independence movement and his brief love affair in Montpellier while over almost as soon as it begins haunts uite literally the rest of his life Another main point of view character a French priest is also an outsider observing the people of Palestine for reasons which become increasingly blurred in his own mind and realising much too late that even those with who he thinks he identifies a group of nuns who man a local hospital are far deliberately and directly involved in the struggle than he realisesOne of the impressive aspects of the novel is its rejection of two of the exposition modes of storytelling commonly adopted by historical novels a third party narrator or artificial dialogue and while a third the letter is adopted it is used sparingly and for conveying feelings between characters with the sparing historical details included being natural and unforced Instead historical context is supplied by an easily cross referenced timeline in the appendixWhat is perhaps less impressive is the author s grasp of either character or point of view writing unfortunately I felt that the sense of being on another side of a barrier of feeling that my own mental processes were real than the world is which I was immersed and that I was somehow excluded from the day to day reality of those around me applied not just to Midhat and the Priest but to my own experience as a reader This sense was not helped by the liberal use of Arabic and French through the dialogue a device I always find artificial as well as unhelpful when characters are speaking exclusively in a language but their translated speech is peppered with original languageDespite its flaws this is an astonishingly ambitious debut novel even astonishing for the age of its author a book surely destined to feature on prize lists such as the Desmond Elliot Betty Trask or Dylan Thomas Prize if not even less exclusive better known prizes
