Coventry Essays characters Ö 7 Rachel Cusk redrew the boundaries of fiction with the Outline Trilogy three literary masterpieces The Washington Post whose narrator Faye perceives the world with a glinting unsparing intelligence while remaining opaue to the reader Lauded for the precision of her prose and the uality of her insight Cusk is a writer of uncommon brilliance Now in Coventry she. As time progresses I think that Rachel Cusk may in all possibility be remembered as one of the truly important authors of our time She takes the wide expanse of modern life in all its boisterous and random absurdity and then seems to effortlessly contain it rationally and logically within her own uniue cadre of cool objective and slow moving linear proseShe is a revelation True refreshment for our rational spirits in chaotic timesHer genius brings a sense of great astonishment and partiality to my own critical sensibility WhyBecause she will take a microcosm an ordinary slice of life encounter with larger than life people and situations and turn it into a gradual easeful meeting of minds going from other lives that in reality seem almost too in your face in their oddly haphazard aleatorism and jarring conflicts to a calmly accepting personal dissection of what is after all just another dayThe narrator is neither nonplussed nor exhausted in these encounters but treats every incident that enters into her narrative with ever ready impartiality It s miraculousYou know our own LIVES could be just like Ms Cusk s fictional onesThe adverse circumstances intermittent but repeatedly sustained of our own lives needn t immediately send us into a nosedive Yet we all have our breaking pointsThe crosses of our lives are so often a constant companion and themselves a buildup to anger or sudden mood swings I know I m like that For years I tried to bear the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune as well as I could but failed miserably at the taskSmoking seemed to help and so at one point did alcohol Yet my hypertension relentlessly racheted upward resulting in health problemsAfter workplace burnout which I pray you will skirt easily if your health is threatened due to stress I returned to my roots earlier abandoned in my crazy uest for the good things of life My roots were in my belief in an unchanging higher realityAnd that same belief can produce a controlled take it all in stride balance as in a great writer like Rachel CuskFor just because life is constantly changing why must we be as wellWell to stand resolutely astride a volcano seems no mean featSo we have to start REALLY SMALL and move slowly into Life s MacrocosmAnd do it without grinding our gears keeping calm carrying onAs Cusk shows rationality and easeful unstressed consideration of reality are possible and within our reach
