Hinges AUTHOR Grace Dane Mazur

Grace Dane Mazur uses the idea of the hinge to illuminate real and metaphysical thresholds in fiction poetry myth and ordinary life From ancient narratives of Gilgamesh Odysseus Parmenides and Orpheus to modern w. This is the most noticeably conversational book I can recall having read I am reminded of Yiyun Li s Dear Friend From My Life I Write to You in Your Life which despite its so promising title left me feeling bereft Mazur s book is the opposite and I found myself answering aloud some of the uestions she poses in the text In the best sense this was like a conversation with an admired very well read somewhat over the top and all over the place friend Mazur is obviously extremely erudite and curious she appears to delve deeply into her widely ranging interestsThough this book could have done with a good round of copy editing for commas and occasional syntactical awkwardnesses these remain primarily in the first couple of dozen pages The work is the playful result of the musings of an imaginative and thoughtful person fully in command of language mythology and lots of other things that may seem unconnected but that will draw in and delight the open reader Coincidentally it was very useful to pick this up after Max Frisch s Homo Faber because it got me thinking further about the mythological implications in that work I would have missed uite a lot without this lucky choice to read Mazur just afterwardsIn short an insightful accessible sometimes pleasantly random book like an intriguing intellectual scent that one can t help but follow I didn t agree with all of Mazur s assertions but I really like the way she thinks This book went on my to re read list which only contains 6 books before I had even finished it
