Book description

Masterful storytelling, challenging our perceptions of convention.After reading a literary disaster (The WallCreeper by Nell Zink) I was over-the-top relieved to be introduced to a true storyteller in reading The Kindness of Women by J.G. Ballard. As I understand, this is the sequel to Empire of the Sun, which I did not read. Id usually read the first one beforehand, but in this case, I was too eager to read Kindness to bother. This book is so rich. Ballard leaves nothing bare, painting and building every detail until its a rich impasto of color and sound. His writing is superb, the easy prose of a storyteller at home in his words.We begin with the protagonist as a young boy in Shanghai, living in colonial bliss with his parents and Russian immigrant Nanny, Olga. The boy, James, is fascinated by war, but the undercurrent we immediately begin to feel is his fascination with the women in his life. This fascination is not, however, one-dimensional. There are layers upon layers of intrigue. When James gets his wish and war breaks out, he is separated from his parents and placed into a Japanese internment camp. He meets, Peggy, the first of many women he meets throughout his life that gives him a dose of the kindness of women.When the war is over, he moves back to England and is lost for a time, searching for who he is and what he wants to be. But Shanghai has a hold on him, and the war, and he cant ever let that go, even as he settles in a small town in the countryside with his wife and three children.When tragedy strikes James on a vacation to Spain, he is left to care for his three children alone. One of the most poignant and beautiful scenes in the book occurs upon his return home, when in his despair and grief, a woman whom no one could suspect, comes to his aid using her body and love for him to salve his emptiness and feelings of loss.And this is the main theme of the story, these women who parade in and out of Jamess life, women who give him a piece of himself he didnt know he had lost so long ago in China. As he moves through the information age of television in the sixties and seventies, through strange dabblings with hallucinogenic drugs, his perceptions of reality get tested again and again, but the love he has for the various women in his life ground him, bring him back to the comfort of home and the juxtaposition of his wandering soul versus his craving for a provincial life.The end of the book brings him full circle, to where hed began his adventures in China, and I was also brought full circle as he speaks of the women he has known; I was given a glimpse into his reverence for the female mind, body, soul that left me with a sense of reverence for the intricacies and variations in human relationships--how utterly complex and nuanced they are, how incredibly fragile yet resilient our existence is.Beautifully written, soulful and rich, this story takes convention and stretches our ideas of morality and causes them to groan with pleasure at the expansion. Im eager to discover more of J.G. Ballard.
