I have a dirty little confession I am drawn to flawed and nlikeable protagonists especially women They absolutely fascinate meAnna Benz is one of those women From the deceptively simple and innocuous book title and cover comes a complicated tale of a deeply nhappy woman who is a curious mix of apathy and passion passivity and impulsiveness self destructiveness and self preservation She alternates between startling insightful observations about herself and her situation and an incredible denseness To some degree we are all a mass I m pretty sure that I didn t like this I m giving it a note of English Doctor, Italian Bride uncertainty mostly because it is possible that maybe I also did It depends on whether it s about what I think it s about I hope I m wrong so many people liked this Let s find out shall weSo if I m right this is the story of Anna the housewife She lives in Zurich with her banker husband and three children She is natively American but followed her husband when he returned home after he told her I think I want to marry you You seem like you would make a good wife to me She s been there seven years and is only now beginning to speak the language on her husband s insistenceAnd you know what happens next from a plot perspective is pretty much what you d expect from the tale of a bored housewife Particularly when she is in Europe and you can assign the word ennui or existential to how she feels It s a slightly exaggerated version of it sure but the life or death importance that it assigns to marriage and especially the heteronormative male breadwinner white and privileged kind felt very traditional There s really nothing new that s said about it here it even comes off as slightly dated The tone the stakes the flickering lights and especially the ending reminded me of nothing so much as The Awakening written in 1899 Except that book was beautifully simple and sincere and this book said all the same things but with a Freudian presentation on top that Kate Chopin wouldn t have known aboutBut it can t possibly be about this right guys I decided pretty early that that couldn t possibly be what this book was about We couldn t be being asked to consider the same tired plot as if it were new with the same sort of stakes it would have had a century ago simply because it was in a different place and different timePerhaps then it was aboutsing this familiar plot to explore a different sort of psyche in this situation The book starts off in a fairly linear fashion but very Lullaby for Two uickly delves into the sort of elided time fuckery for which Virginia Woolf is famous a stream of consciousness where memories dance with present time which dances with distant memories which in turn push you back into the present And you know what I really did like this aspect of it I appreciated the way that memory bounced off of memory taking you back a few days then a few years then back to the present then into an imagined future then painfully back into the present again I liked how the author arranged the memories so that we got psychological and plot reveals pretty much all throughout the second part of the book I think that with a caveat that I will get to in a minute this was the strongest aspect of a book There were definitely some moments I felt like I was really living the anxieties and depressions and sad little memories of this sad little womanBut of course as I ve already mentioned Virginia Woolf has done this so much better oh my goodness read Mrs Dalloway now if you don t know what I mean and at a time when it made sense to reckon with this particular category of woman And of course this wasn t done nearly so well The constant interruptions of the therapist to tells her interpretation of the deeper meaning of the story symbolically in profound therapist talk and analogy got really Once a Thief (The Network unbearable reallyickly It was like having a really pretentious humorless peanut gallery World s worst MST3K with one the main character jumping off the screen to participate The woman literally brings her dreams to dissect It was so tiredSo maybe the point was for s to see a different kind of housewife I stuck with this theory for a pretty long time.

Olding it nder water Mistresses until it became slack bloodless a chore to read The reader is suffocated with Anna s constant self analysis We never get a break from it She s either fucking someone else or thinking about fucking someone else or feeling VERY sorry for herself that she s fucking someone else lamenting it but doing it anyways And in between these naval gazing scenes we re peppered with obnoxiously pithy vignettes with her therapist Dr Messerli who says ridiculous deep things like It doesn t matter whether you believe in ghosts The ghosts believe in you Grief that finds no relief in tears makes other organs weepHUHThen we get to hear Anna feel nauseatingly sorry for herself in sentences like these She was lonely and remote Anna was lonely and remote everywhere she wentLove s a sentence Anna thought A death sentenceNo one talks like this No one waxes this poetical with their shrink or constantly discusses the idea of love as a metaphor for fire with their lover It s all an artifice I m pretty sure even the flowers on the cover of the book are fake Lovely silk flowers that smell like nothingOver and over the author bashess on the head POOR POOR ANNA Poor Anna Except I didn t feel sorry or even interested in her I didn t get her like I did Rabbit Angstrom a philandering pig Updike created who is human and real Anna by contrast is a construct She is a creation on which to pile beautiful sentences and a few hot sex scenes I felt the author s hand everywhere I went I was never involved in the story I was simply a witness to a show off Look at this line And that Isn t this meaningful The depressive narrative goes nowhere Made of Honor until 34 in when it becomes even MORE depressing and instead of caring I just started counting the pages til I could write this review and move along with my life And now I think I will Next It s thrilling isn t itYes Anna thought Adultery s a blastIt wasn tntil page 292 of this 320 page book that I realized that this was view spoilera retelling of Anna Karenina hide spoiler Love is a fire But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house you can never tell Joan CrawfordThe last sentence of this book is still ringing in my head I cannot tell you what a delight and challenge it was to read It s no surprise that Essbaum is first a poet second a novelist This book was gripping extremely sensual raw and biting and incredibly sad That being said it s probably one of the best books I ve read in a long timeOutwardly Anna seems like a perfect American expat wife in Switzerland She loves her husband three children and being a homemaker or hausfrau Inwardly Anna has many many secrets Essbaum ingeniously weaves Anna s psychoanalysis sessions with her psychiatrist her German language classes and her daily excursions to enter Anna s mind and inner world Both her mental clarity and lack of conscience are enough to make you shutter but still want to reach out to her and save her I love this woman in admitting as much are there parts of her that all women can relate to I think so Note how she relates the feelings associated with the ending of a relationship Fire is beautifully cruel That fusion occurs only at a specific heat That blood in fact can boil That the dissolution of an affair is an entropic reaction and the disorder it tends toward is flammable That a heart will burn And burn and burn and burn That an ordinary flame s hottest point cannot always be seen Here s another of Anna s contemplations that is so simple and yet profound Anna loved and didn t love sex Anna needed and didn t need it Her relationship with sex was a convoluted partnership that rose from both her passivity and an nassailable desire to be distracted And wanted She wanted to be wanted As a film buff a lot of the elements presented in this book reminded me of revamped versions of a couple of my favorite classic films both French Belle de Jour and Diary of a Chambermaid In the end you learn so much about the protagonist through their actions but know so little about who they truly are They hold the audience and reader at a careful distance and we re left to our own haunting conclusions by the en.
