    Paperback ð Jernigan ePUB í jernigan mobile, Jernigan MOBIGates's Jernigan might be one of the most relate able yet horrible characters ever He's a jackass and doesn't know any other way to beWhen you're brought up by weak people and fraternize with weak people you tend to have an inclination to be weak yourself unless you do something about it Peter Jernigan's not trying to find himself he knows himself He's a terrible father husband and irresponsible as hell He does what he feels like without thinking about others feelings and drinks than Anthony Bourdain while filming in Tbilisi As horrible as he is he is unfortunately relate able to many people in this world because some ARE Jernigan at their fullest or share some of the qualities that he exhibits on a daily basisThis is a pretty dark book but Gates writes Jernigan so well that his outward personality takes the forefront when most of us would crawl into a ball and say bye to the world for a very long timeIf you like Bukowski's Henry Chinask

    Paperback ð Jernigan ePUB í jernigan mobile, Jernigan MOBISome books you're just relieved to finish Thank Odin Zeus the Buddha whomever for putting me across the finish line Books like this are notoriously difficult to rate so I'll leave the stars behind some mostly cloudySee the old dilemma is this What if you hate the protagonist? I mean can't stand the guy? Does that sway your view of the book? Should it? I know you can argue that the book is BRILLIANT because the author is causing you to loathe his main character but what if it has nothing to do with the writing? Chicken meet egg and all thatJernigan is a dr

    Paperback ð Jernigan ePUB í jernigan mobile, Jernigan MOBIUltimately this novel is a pretty fast read and fairly entertaining But it has a lot of bad writing and a number of poor decisions by its author David GatesDefine bad writing? Sure It's when the narrator's insecurity leads him to be needlessly intrusive Here are some examples of bad writing in Jernigan I mean at least I'd found out that this was a neighb

    Paperback ð Jernigan ePUB í jernigan mobile, Jernigan MOBIJernigan 1991 by David Gates is mesmerisingI cannot really explain how one of the most misanthropic troubled bitter drunks imaginable with few if any redeeming features results in such a brilliant and compelling bookPeter Jernigan's life is spiralling out of control His wife's gone he's lost his job and he's a stranger to his teenage son and his only relief is to drink himself stupid All the reader can do is look on in horror as Jernigan shares his sorry tale with customary erudition caustic wit half formed thoughts and perverse logic in a relentless narrative It shouldn’t work and yet it does After a slowish initial 30 pages I was gripped and in thrall through to the bitter endI read this for my book group and am delighted it was chosen I doubt I would have come across it any other wayJernigan has been compared to Stoner and there are para

    Paperback ð Jernigan ePUB í jernigan mobile, Jernigan MOBIMasie Cochran Associate Editor Tin House Books Recently at the urging of Nanci McCloskey I began reading David Gates’ Jernigan She tossed the book to me while packing for a business trip I skimmed the jacket copy my eyes widening “Geez Nanc this is super dark and they kind of give it away in the description” What startled me was something like this “chainsaw that he turns with disastrous consequences on his wife his teenaged son his dangerously vulnerable mistress—and not least of all on himself”About forty pages in I started wondering how Gates was going to pull it off The novel was quiet thoughtful and dark but not shred your loved ones to pieces dark I flipped the book over and read carefully “Peter Jernigan who views the world with ferocious intelligence grim rapture and a chainsaw wit that he turns with disastrous consequences on his wife his teenaged son his dangerously vulnerable mistress—and not least of all on himself This

    Paperback ð Jernigan ePUB í jernigan mobile, Jernigan MOBIThis is one of those novels that establishes its greatness from page 1 and you spend the rest of the novel desperately hoping it can maintain that greatness In the most part it really does Originally released in the early 90's and soon to be reissued you'll hear lots of reaching for Stoner comparisons I haven't read Stoner I dunno the 90's seems just about distant enough now to make this novel FEEL that otherness of another era no mobile phonesthe walkman maybe Jernigan's time has finally come There is humour and despair here Jernigan is a narrator with all the alcoholic traits he thinks he's funnier than he is you find it hard to pity him he's kind of a dick but you do admire his pursuit of the buzz of his own personal incandescence It is a brilliantly played out drama of how easy it is to slip off the edges you read it questioning your own reality those things I've stopped looking

    Paperback ð Jernigan ePUB í jernigan mobile, Jernigan MOBIIf you took John Updike and Richard Ford and gave them each a serious drinking problem then they would've probably come up with this bleak portrait of an American Father on the edge At times shocking and touching it nevertheless keeps you reading due to Gate's keen prose and razor sharp eye for detail After finishing it you'll see why
