You know in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind they ve invented this brilliant device for erasing specific memories and the whole plot revolves around people who meet each other after they ve had their memories of each other already erased so they re meet and re love and it s all poignant and kind of whoah and oops I kind of gave the plot away well you should have seen it by now come on it s years old Anyway I d love that particular invention to be true true true so that I could hustle down to the memory doctor s office and after having ALL of my romantic entanglements DELETED from my brain obviously that would be the very first thing to do then I d present the doctor with a list of books to delete and The Crimson Petal and the White would be right there in that little list and it would of course be just so that I could have the pure unsullied delectable pleasure of reading it for the first time againThis is such a corking good page turner like if some giant Dickens and The uincunx and The Worm in the Bud great book about the Victorian sexual underworld and some other stuff were shoved in the blender and then written up by a guy who really knows what he s doingNow the ENDING of this huge novel was criticised greatly as being NOT AN ENDING at all but merely a dribbling away So please note that there is a book called THE APPLE which is short stories accounting for the rest of all the characters lives and that s great and essential tooI envy you people who have not read thisAnd I d also ask for my memory of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind to be deleted too that would just be a little bit of post modern humour to share with the memory doctor Oh and the memory of writing this review

Watch your step Keep your wits about you you will need them This city I am bringing you to is vast and intricate and you have not been here before You may imagine from other stories you ve read that you know it well but those stories flattered you welcoming you as a friend treating you as if you belonged The truth is that you are an alien from another time and place altogetherThus does Faber begin his beguiling spell of a novel the Crimson Petal and the White He sets the bar rather arrogantly high with such an introduction intriguing the reader drawing us in with words that manage to be both the sharp slap of a glove across the face as well as the whispered words of a mysteriously dangerous lover whose face we can never uite seeThis is the late Victorian London that Faber gives us This London this England belongs to no one author s inspiration It is the dirty industrial exploitative mess of Sinclair s The Jungle it the deeply urgent hypocritical stridently moral mess of Thomas Hardy s desperately dark imagination it is the woman repressed to barely breathing in the the attic of the Brontes imagination it is a nearly unbearably complex Dickens character that 900 pages are not sufficient to describe Faber gives direct or indirect homage to all the teeming screaming whispering and of course most interestingly involutarily silent voices of the era No one could hope to capture it all of course but Faber does his very best It is for this sort of novel that I wish the word awe could be reserved forFaber gives us various guides on our journey characters connected somehow in the teeming mass tenously momentarily or perhaps intimately showing the reader many different perspectives on the era as characters have sometimes vastly different experiences based on one degree of birth 10 shillings in their pocket an address three streets better than someone else s or the lack of a few pieces of vital basic life information He manages to give us the deeply urgent feelings of the era on a range of topics from progress and modernization to a deeply religious perspective on romantic love to consumerism to the deep schism between sexual and spiritual love Different characters views on these subjects were everything from repulsive to ignorant to poignant to infuriating covered in grime tears and rage And yet I found myself deeply touched by the unlikeliest of small minded miserable characters It was as if I saw their hands flailing in the darkness behind a door and I kept wanting to kick that door in to take their hands and lead them out and I couldn t do a thing about itFaber brings out the realities of every day life that seem to never surface in novels of the era He coats his city in filth from the very first not scrupling to show us a child covered in piss or a whore cleaning herself after a rank smelling customer has left her He speaks of decaying teeth in the mouths of beauties carriage collison deaths in routine morning traffic and the realities of burial in a city where catching disease from corpses was a very real risk in the streets And yet this is not a treatise on the difficulties of early modern life alone Faber just means to point out that these things existed alongside the big ideas dreams and spiritual yearnings of the era Even married ladies who had no idea what sex was or where babies came from had chamber pots that smelled and needed to be emptied in the morning He is right to yank us from our polite disregard of such facts in the typical journey into this era just as ladies of the time should have been yankedHe is not without poetry or a sparkling sly humor in descriptions of this roiling mess either That is one of the greatly surprising aspects of the tale Out of a dramatic vignette of hustle bustle London life there are observations like this morally its an odd period both for the observed and the observer fashion has engineered the reappearance of the body while morality still insists upon perfect ignorance of it The bodice hugs tight to the bosom and the belly the front of the skirt clings to the pelvis and hangs straight down so that a slight wind is enough to reveal the presence of legs Yet no righteous man must dare to think of the flesh and no righteous woman must be aware of having it If an exuberant barbarian from a savage fringe of the Empire were to stray into St James Park now and compliment one of these ladies on the delicious looking contours of her flesh the response would most likely be neither delight nor disdain but an instant loss of consciousnessHis characters are surprising too They often seem ridiculous overly dramatic silly enough to dismiss at first sight The author himself seems to feel the need to beg his audience to pay attention to follow along specimens that we can only roll our eyes at for just a little bit longer Sugar our main protagonist goes through a social mobility and through many changes not at all common for a woman of the era Her slow transition and revelation as her economic and social class change the needs and focuses of her thoughts as she changes again and again what she wants out of life It is amazing to watch her transformation from chapter to chapter how her voice and thoughts change Our main male character William Rackham is introduced as a silly self important twit with vainglorious artistic aspirations and an aversion to any sort of responsibility Even when he takes hold of his fate he does not really rise in uality in the slightest Some might say he even decreases Yet I came to understand him He has all the flaws of men of the era and some not even as badly as most His struggles to cope with so much he doesn t understand his delusions become pitiful even painful by the end His relationship with his wife ends up being particularly powerful Poor Agnes Rackham is enough to inspire anyone feminist or not into a rage at what women were meant to be and what they could not be The struggles of Emmeline Fox and Henry Rackham brought tears of rage to my eyes it goes on and on Faber gets us so involved with people that perhaps we would dismiss from an author less talented I could go on and on here about all the issues of feminism raised through the female characters the perceptions of them through the eyes of men the classism relative morality but I do believe I would run out of characters allowed in this review before I d barely begunAs to the ending spoilers perhaps Though I don t plan to give much specific away I liked it It was abrupt and shocking rather but after 900 pages of this epic I somehow think it appropriate At least from a modern novelist I could almost believe that he stopped it there out of sheer fatigue with his narrative but I don t think that s entirely it His interweaving of his storylines over and over again into the complex web that they became was far too delicately done for that to be the case We re meant to see the sort of ending that reality gives us if indeed there ever really is an ending Is thereIt is time to let me go is a fittingly sensitive yet cruel parting from a story that has embodied that contradictionPS okay now stop reading if you don t want to see a sort of spoiler I think they go to America Martine If the heavy handed hints at the end were to be believed Archery: The Art of Repetition of self involved perfume magnate William

review The Crimson Petal and the White characters Ô eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Michel Faber Michel Faber ↠ 8 download Attracts preening socialites drunken journalists untrustworthy servants vile guttersnipes and whores of all kinds. The Crimson Petal and the White is the 2002 novel by Michel Faber a resplendent eight hundred fifty page saga that chronicles the rise of an exceptionally clever London prostitute known as Sugar in 1874 her fall from grace the following year and how she impacts a multitude of characters along the way That story isn t at all complex and given the political machinations that existed in high and low society of Victorian England the secrets between powerful men and their cunning mistresses as well as the intricate revenge schemes at times employed the story itself proceeds in a very undramatic manner It s not what Faber tells but how he tells it that makes the book a great oneAddressing the reader directly as a cabman or street vendor might a potential fare or customer the story begins on Church Lane in the neighborhood of St Giles which Faber describes as at the very bottom the lowest of the low A prostitute named Caroline a widow making her way alone on the streets for five years now is introduced having to improvise everything from birth control to meals to heat during a cold winter There are innumerable ways to die in London but for those able to rise above begging also opportunities as Faber indicates as he passes us from Caroline to an old friend named Sugar she bumps into inside a stationary shop on Greek StreetHaving lifted herself up from Church Lane to Silver Street described as a hop skip and jump from the widest richest grandest thoroughfare in London and into a tightly managed bawdy house known as Mrs Castaway s Sugar is a poised and well dressed nineteen year old prostitute steadily in demand due to her ability to do two things Caroline cannot carry on a conversation with any man and to never have to say no to one both with a childlike innocence that customers seem to find desirable Unknown to Caroline Sugar is writing a novel a sordid halfpenny tale of one prostitute s bloody revenge against the male sex Following Sugar to Regent Street where the future of London promises to be airy regular and clean we re passed over to William Rackham heir to Rackham Perfumeries William has traveled to Billington Joy with his wife s unscrupulous maid Clara on a mission to procure himself a fashionable hat and his wife dress making material William is something of a ne er do well fop whose collegiate ambition to become an essayist and author has been subverted by his father who needs a son to properly assume control of the perfume company while his aloof first born son Henry shows no aptitude for business choosing instead to devote himself to GodLiving on an allowance from his father William has inherited a home in Notting Hill going to pot with fewer servants and fine accoutrements such as a coachman as William dithers taking over the family empire His once elegant and witty wife Agnes has secluded herself from society and from her husband whom she rarely even takes meals with relapsing into spells or diatribes that the family physician Doctor Curlew suggests demands treatment in an asylum William drowns his demons with two degenerate college friends Bodley and Atwell who take William drinking or whoring But not even the services of a set of nubile twins delivers William from his malaise An apparent disappointment to all who observe him William diverts himself with More Sprees in London Hints for Men about Town with advice for greenhorns The bachelor s guidebook of debauchery includes sections on Trotters street girls and Prime Rump which includes bottle service well out of William s price range however a review under Mid Loin For Moderate Spenders catches his attention Following directions William heads to The Fireside Inn a pub located near Silver Street where he seeks out Sugar who the guidebook promises is especially accomplished in the Art of Conversation and is assuredly a fit companion for any True GentlemanFaber s description of Sugar as William lays eyes on her for the first time is indicative of the novel s mesmerizing prose and the author s ability to convincingly jump into the skin of different characters At that moment The Fireside s door swings open and in walks a solitary woman A whiff of fresh air comes in with her as well as the sound of wild weather outside cut off in mid howl by the sealing of the door like a cry stifled under a hand The pall of cigar smoke parts momentarily then mingles with the smell of rainThe woman is all in black no dark green Green darkened by the downpour Her shoulders are drenched the fabric of her bodice clinging tight to her prominent collar bones and her thin arms are sheathed in dappled chlorella A sprinkling of unabsorbed water still glistens on her simple bonnet and on the filmy grey veil that hangs from it Her abundant hair not flame red just now but black and orange like neglected coal embers is all disordered and loose curls of it are drippingOffering the name George W Hunt William is immediately taken with Sugar who can uote Shakespeare but importantly knows how to listen As she allows William to talk she makes him feel charming fluent and intelligent again He escorts Sugar back to her homely room at Mrs Castaway s where he not only falls asleep before any sexual transaction can occur but drunkenly wets himself Sugar passes the night at her writing desk working on her novel From such auspicious beginnings William becomes obsessed by Sugar and seeks to reach terms with Mrs Castaway that will make her his exclusively To his surprise Sugar agrees with the arrangementIn order to properly keep a woman like Sugar William dedicates himself to Rackham Perfumeries and improves his fortunes dramatically He relocates Sugar from the brothel on Silver Street she shares with her employer and mother Mrs Castaway to an apartment outside the city in Priory Close with French doors and a bathtub Sugar grows isolated in the suburbs and begins to advise William in the world of business helping him maintain his empire while he teaches her about the perfume industry Sugar shrewdly takes an interest in William s domestic life Agnes whose tumorous condition remains undiagnosed by medicine continues her spiral into madness while William s brother Henry combats desires for Doctor Curlew s daughter Emmeline Fox a reformer who volunteers for the Rescue Society an organization trying to steer prostitutes away from sin and into honest work Sugar discovers at the same time the reader does that William and Agnes have a five year old daughter named Sophie who s reached the age when she needs schooling Seeking to solidify William s total dependence on her Sugar offers herself for the job of the lonely child s governessDespite publishing only three novels Michel Faber announced in 2014 that he would stop writing novels following the death of his wife and companion of twenty six years While this would be a tragedy then at the very least with The Crimson Petal and the White the title is from the Tennyson poem Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal which opensNow sleeps the crimson petal now the white the author left it all on the floor Few facets of London society in the 1870s remain unlit by Faber s glorious writing style his natural sounding dialogue and characters struggling to existIf this novel had been written by virtually any other other author or at any other period of time I probably would ve abandoned it At 838 pages the story really doesn t get started until Sugar moves in to the Rackham residence on page 497 Each time Faber transitions away from her side of the story with its exciting duplicity and vulnerability in order to dwell on the existential funk of William s depressed brother Henry or the angelic plights of Mrs Fox who like Agnes falls ill with what s initially diagnosed as consumption I considered that maybe the book didn t have to be so damn long And yet I kept reading Opening the book up to almost any page and it s hard not to Church Lane back entrance of Paradise fankyerverymuch Having delivered a well dressed lady to this repugnant uarter of the Old City the cabman utters a snort of sarcasm his like minded horse dumps as a parting gesture of disdain a mound of hot turd on the cobbles Resisting the temptation to tick him off Sugar keeps her mouth shut and pays the fare then tiptoes towards Mrs Leek s house with the hems of her skirts lifted What a morass of filth this street is the fresh fall of horseshit is the least of its hazards Did it always stink like this or has she been living too long in a place where nothing smells but rose bushes and Rackham toiletriesThe deplorable living conditions in the city s poor uarters with their brigades of beggars and puddles of piss and vomit on the cobblestones not to mention the total absence of birth control and women s suffrage are woven into the book in a skillful way Victorian London is only the background and Faber keeps his research from charging into the foreground creeping up on occasion to tap the characters on the shoulders rather shockingly then retreating Rather than become an info dump the focus is on the characters always Faber uses Victorian era patois sparingly and each of his characters seem to express themselves both uniuely and honestly with intelligence passion and wit The Crimson Petal and the White like Faber s other novels Under the Skin and The Book of Strange New Things subverted my expectations in the way that it refuses to barrel through conventions of any genre in this case the subterfuge and revenge of a thriller William Rackham his wife Agnes or her maidservant might ve been villains in another book creatures of plot devising ways to rule Sugar or maybe ruin her but over 838 pages the picture that emerges of these characters is complex than that There were ualities of each character I was able to identify with which in addition to the marvelous writing helped me surf my way through to an unforgettable ending
