James Wood has had an enviable career learning how to appreciate books and then reading and writing about them for a living Durham Cathedral School Eton College Cambridge Uni Chief Literary Critic of the Guardian Senior Editor at the New Republic in Washington DC currently staff writer at the New Yorker and he is only 47 But he basically always writes about himself and the academicjournalistic world he lives in If only I could take my experience banging and bending two motion selectors for Post Office Telecommunications where I spent the best years of my life to the bankIn this his only novel so far his protagonist is Thomas Bunting unsuccessful academic and pathetic loser a reverse of Wood s own career Bunting has wasted seven years trying to finish his unspecified PhD dissertation and is now further time wasting putting together a so called Book Against God BAG a bit like Casaubon in Middlemarch He has also managed to marry a concert pianist called Jane who is providing their income The problem with this book is that it is a load of middle class chitter chatter where what conflict there is exists as a clash arguments and ideals rather than action Bunting would not survive long in the real world putting bills behind the mantle clock does not stop creditors coming after you Who would borrow 1000 from a loan shark to repay 5424 over two years Nothing comes of this as it might do it is just left dangling at the end He gets by on the dole but there has been no dole for many years but Job Seekers Allowance You only get this for 6 months you must have 12 months National Insurance contributions and must have been made redundant You get nothing if you leave a job voluntarily people like James Wood have never known this world Bunting has left his packerporter job at Harrods but can also fall back on his rich art dealer Uncle Karl in Chelsea One way or another his impossible lifestyle is maintained Why a concert pianist would want to marry such a loser is one uestion and didn t he have some inkling that she would be practising in the flat But he has ualms about having children which he avoids by non ejaculating in unprotected sex and he is supposed to be an educated man In reality Jane would get pregnant anyway and have to stop work for a while thus intensifying the need for work This would put Bunting in a real fix and lead to some action but all we get are little snits and meaningful conversations all the time flaunting his erudition It is well written as you would expect but unconvincing although I don t think he intended it to be Incidentally the poem he uotes My soul there is a country Far beyond the stars is Peace by Henry Vaughan 1621 1695
