    The WallcreeperA curious book punctuated by three deaths The first a miscarriage Zink is blessed with a real gift for writing she’s obviously intelligent and widely read We learn something of birds especially the wallcreeper; something of rivers and their need to be free; and certainly a great deal about the sexual thoughts desires and s of a young American woman away from home in Berne and Berlin with sojourns into Macedonia and Albania It would seem our cup runneth over as far as the reader’s experience goes But does it?It was noticeable that in spite of her gifts the life changing events at the beginning and end of the book were passed over uickly Little insight was shared The miscarriage was particularly glib – she hits her head in a car accident and the concussion is described while the miscarriage is simply stated to have taken place Was this meant to be meaningful? When we come to the very matter of fact death at the end it seems we are again faced with deciding for ourselves what it means for the central character for the book as a whole as a comment on the human condition If the book had had depth I would have enjoyed puzzling out some of the possible meaningsWhat was the book about? A young woman’s life and adventures with asides on the conservation of the natural world? Does even a talented writer have to devote large parts of their book to sexual themes to be noticed these days? Or maybe that’s what life has come to be about for a significant section of the Western population? Sex sells as we all know Because of the way humans and their social institutions are set up sexual information is highly charged If a book teaches us about wallcreepers and includes detailed sexual encounters it’s the latter we are likely subconsciously at least to remember As advertisers well know It’s a dangerous game if one has a valid point to make about the world we live in And may soon all die inWith a bit living Zink may well be a literary force to be reckoned with

    I hated The Wallcreeper in a proportion eual to my love of Mislaid It is for Mislaid alone that I give the books five stars It's so understatedly funny and moves so uickly I finished it feeling really happy about the complexities and infinite possibilities of the world The narrator in The Wallcreeper felt distant; even parts of the story felt hard to hold on to I intensely disliked her and thus I found it hard to be sympathetic So in the sense that she elicited strong feelings the book was successful But I'd happily trade the week I spent reading The Wallcreeper to have started and finished Mislaid earlier

    There is so much hype about this author but I think she deserves all of it These books are bonkers but in a good way and they are both books about women which feel as if they have been written for women

  4. Mia George Mia George says:

    There is a potent lack of understanding of discrimination in Mislaid which misses the mark significantly Wallcreeper lacks organization character development symbols metaphor It doesn't even seem connected to itself in certain places
