    ePUB TheJump Artist PDF ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk thejump pdf, artist download, TheJump Artist PDFHaving just finished Austin Ratner's THE JUMP ARTIST I could give in to the temptation to add another rating to its ratings and avoid the challenge of reviewing it But the work is important enough to be reviewed This takes me to the overwhelming question And how should I begin? THE JUMP ARTIST is a book that does not have to be studied to be appreciated yet it is a book that ought to be studied I read it I have not studied it So how should I presume to review it? Borrowing pieces of TS Eliot's Prufrock seems not altogether inappropriate since Ratner's use of quotations as epigraphs to chapters may call t

    ePUB TheJump Artist PDF ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk thejump pdf, artist download, TheJump Artist PDFAustin Ratner's novel is the fictionalized story of the real life Philippe Halsman a Latvian Jew accused of killing his father on a hike in the Austrian Alps in 1928 his two trials and his eventual freedom and escape to the US as war begins helped by the efforts of Varian Fry and Albert Einstein He went on to have a storied career photographing the world's biggest celebrities Einstein Churchill Salvador Dali Marilyn Monroe but the book suggests the trauma inflicted by both the circumstances of his father's death and being unjustly accused of it never left himHalsman while not an entirely likable character is a very sympathetic one Any adolescent who has ever written something nasty about his parent in diaries or letters will be haunted by the way Halsman's innocent but ungrac

    ePUB TheJump Artist PDF ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk thejump pdf, artist download, TheJump Artist PDFCompelling idea executed in an original and thoughtful way Some beautiful writing to boot I recommend this for anyone who likes DeLillo or Nabokov for starters Also anyone who likes books thoughts photography Freud the Dreyfus affair A River Runs Through It Oh hell just get yourself a copyHe thought he saw a flower in her hair but then saw it was just an empty glove in the hand of the woman sitting behind her Philipp watched the motes of dust sliding into the small patch of sunlight up by the window like fireflies igniting then diving back into the extinguishing gloom Maybe he would be free soon He would buy Ruth an ice cream at the Brandenburg GateIt was as though an odor of childhood had escaped through some rent in time from some bright winter afternoon in Riga with apple pie steam curling upward from the waxed table 'I like that you knit' he said He liked schoolm

    ePUB TheJump Artist PDF ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk thejump pdf, artist download, TheJump Artist PDFI found this book to be difficult to put down It was suspenseful heart wrenching and thought provoking I really became attached to Philippe and thought he was a very well developed character I appreciate the author's use of symbolism and imagery He has crafted an excellent read based around an actual eventI would have loved to have heard of his sister's story what an amazing persistent force but recognize that this was Philipe's and his father's tale I think I will be thinking about Philip for sometime and the injustice that marked his entire life and in reality shaped who he becameI won this title from Goodreads and I am g

    ePUB TheJump Artist PDF ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk thejump pdf, artist download, TheJump Artist PDFThe Jump Artist has so much promise that it pains me to give it less than 5 stars In the opening author’s note Austin Ratner quotes Andre Gide “Fiction is history that might have taken place and history is fiction which has taken place” Using that definition The Jump Artist is based on history Philipp Halsmann a 22 year old Jewish Latvian young man joins his father for a hike in the Tyrolean Alps His father temporarily wanders off and is murdered Despite woefully lacking evide

    ePUB TheJump Artist PDF ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk thejump pdf, artist download, TheJump Artist PDFI had known of Philippe Halsman as a photographer but knew nothing of his personal life until I read The Jump Artist a novel based on research into his life Still the book does not claim to be a biography and the author has fleshed out the basic facts with his interpretation of Halsman's thoughts and deeds Halsman was accused of murdering his father while they were hiking together in the Tyrolean Alps and spent time in prison He was Jewish and lived in a very dangerous time and place during the rise of Hitler the victim of anti Semitism quite obvious in his trials Philippe had a conflicted relationship with his father as many young men do After the murder of his father he became depressed and self destructive and he pushed away all the people who loved him The book is well written with some beautiful language There are interesting quotes at the beginning of each chapter and foreign language phrases that are not always translated For me some of the sentences didn

    ePUB TheJump Artist PDF ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk thejump pdf, artist download, TheJump Artist PDFThis is an amazing book each chapter starts with a quote that pertains to the chapter a quote from many different sources the first one is absolutely exquisite These quotes show how smart this author really is and how much work he's done on the book masterful just that aspect of the book The writing is wonderful the descriptions of a young man unfairly accused of loss of solitude of strength and of weakness is this a historical fiction? Is this a psychological study is this I don't know what this is but I can say it's one of the best books I've read in a long long time I think every chapter or two could be the basis of a book club discussion it's very very rich in so many ways
