review A Month in the Country

A Month in the Country review Ø 5 'That night for the first time during many months I slept like the dead and next morning awoke very early'One summer just after the Great War Tom Birkin a demobbed soldier arrives in the village of Oxgodby He has been invited to unco. I am a seasonal reader often craving books with sizzling settings in the summer months and snowy locales in the winter Last week I saw a review for J L Carr s Man Booker winning A Month in the Country and was intrigued enough by the title to read it for myself Using stunning prose combined with well developed characters Carr s novella is perfect for a leisurely summer morning Tom Birkin had survived the Great War yet returned alienated from civilian life While in present times his feelings can be ascribed to survivor s guilt or post traumatic stress disorder in 1920 Birkin did not have an outlet for his feelings His wife Vinny had left him for another man leaving the door open for his return Disillusioned with life as a temporarily single man in London Birkin accepts a job in a small northern hamlet of Oxgodby to unearth a painting and artist from the 1340s Even though this out of the way life is not what Birkin had envisioned for himself he welcomes the opportunity to get out of his situation and avoid the present mess of his marriage While in Oxgodby Birkin encounters a uaint cast of characters Fellow excavator Michael Moon has come north for the same reasons as Birkin The two share war stories and their views on life in general as they attempt to meet their deadlines in unearthing medieval men As the two outsiders enjoy a cordial relationship Birkin also interacts with locals Kathy Ellenbeck is a precocious fourteen year old who seems to know everything about everyone I found her exchanges to be humorous Meanwhile Birkin is smitten with the vicar s wife Alice Keach A young woman of no than twenty Alice is both intuitive and beautiful yet off limits It is through his and Alice s non relationship that allows Birkin to assess his own life situation In his novella Carr employs descriptive prose that has me longing for a countryside Warm summer days are perfect for picnics budding romances and staying up late contemplating one s role in life Carr develops characters in Birkin and Moon who are non believers yet are employed by a church Most of the action occurs within the belfry where Birkin works and sleeps even the contrast as he fights an inner impulse to strike up relations with Alice For a male author I enjoyed Carr s development of his female characters and was glad that they were simply platonic All good things come to an end Birkin narrates this story while looking back 58 years later having never returned to Oxgodby The story moved by uickly and Birkin finished his work the church goers almost relieved when he returned to London Carr s story is indeed appropriate for a lazy summer morning A Month in the Country is a relaxing novella with strong characters for a summer day and like Birkin when I was finished reading it it was time to get on with my everyday life 4 solid stars

If I d stayed there would I always have been happy No I suppose not People move away grow older die and the bright belief that there will be another marvelous thing around each corner fades It is now or never we must snatch at happiness as it flies Do we recognize happiness when we live it Or is it a condition we only perceive in retrospection remembering the past through the rose tinted glasses of memoryWales 1978 Thomas Birkin a survivor of the Great War travels back in time to the 1920s and reconstructs a month spent in the rural village of Oxgodby North Yorkshire Employed to recover a concealed medieval painting on the wall of the local church Thomas believes that a change of scenery will soothe the scars the bloodbath of war and a shattered marriage have imprinted on him Regardless of his skeptical attitude towards religion the placid rhythm of summer days ripened by the sun and the uaint temperament of some of the townspeople will guide him inadvertently not only to uncover the mysteries surrounding the mural painting but also towards his spiritual restoration This is what I need I thought a new start and afterwards maybe I won t be a casualty any Thomas is a product of his generation Gifted with excessive self awareness uncommon lucidity and a rare sense of humor he speaks from the intimacy of a first person narrator and makes the reader a sensory participant of the impact a few weeks spent among strangers in self effacing examination of how a tiny parcel of his history infused him with a renewed zest for life JL Carr s masterstroke is to tinge the mural of Thomas chronicle with a gossamer of vivid observations that sparkle the old flame of hope which glows brighter than ever when Alice Keach the Minister s wife pierces through Thomas numbness with her curious vitality The world unfolds in a palette of intricate details delightful snapshots of daily postcards A blooming rose in a hat the comfortable dampness of concentrated craft under the roof timbers the buzz of insects and the twittering of birds and blades of grass swaying with the gentle breeze passers by that matter and others that don t leave track silent conversations with the Moon the lazy hours of a summer inexorably crawling towards a perennial exuberance the intoxicating scent of serendipitous friendship of wistful love sweet fleeting unattainable of wanting to memorize the shape of an oval face before it is too late the devastating certainty of knowing it is gone forever To feel pain means to be alive and the resolution to pursue happiness is a courageous vow that Thomas is willing to take The fallen man of the mural painting couldn t have imagined that a fellow artist would recover his masterpiece lost to the world under whitewash for than five centuries Thomas Birkin never envisioned being haunted by happiness fifty years after a life altering moment that presented itself wrapped in balustrades of washed out color And there was no way I could have known the heart wrenching journey to the past that awaited me in barely a hundred pages Do we glorify the past in order to cope with the present as a form of self protection I suppose we do But if giving way to nostalgic reverie allows us not to regret missed opportunites that choke us in waves of self pity and prompts us to be grateful for small streaks of fortune instead I will settle on melancholy any given day Only then the tugging at the heart for moments gone for good might leave a sweet lingering taste in our lips like the promise of an unsealed kiss of not suandered words that might last the span of a lifetime

A Month in the Country review Ø 5 Covery they form a bond but they also stir up long dormant passions within the village What Berkin discovers here will stay with him for the rest of his life 'Carr has the magic touch to re enter the imagined past' Penelope Fitzgeral. Can you remember a time in your life when you were truly happy If I search my memories I find a sixteen year old girl sitting in a canoe with a boy fishing at two o clock in the morning by the eerie light of the midnight sun on a glassy lake near Whitehorse Yukon Everything is tingly and pulsing with youth I look a little and see myself choking back tears on a hospital bed with my beloved grandfather hearing him say I m still your grandpa Robin knowing I would never see him again but feeling gratitude for the absolute purity of the moment I look again and watch myself a brand new mother rocking my baby during one of our midnight meetings in the stillness the newborn puzzle piece nested against my breast Unconditional love was being hatched in my heartThose moments are the jewels of lifeJL Carr s novella explores such perfect times through the character of Tom Birkin Set in the summer of 1920 but related in 1978 an older Birkin is remembering the month during which he is hired to uncover a medieval mural in a church in northern England Damaged by time served in WWI and a bad marriage Birkin arrives at Oxgodby fairly shattered and alone This time serves as a salve on his heart a reminder of the beauty of art but also of nature of simple pastoral idyls and country people As he uncovers the painting he is also uncovering the masterpiece of his self his wonder at the world and whatever lies ahead I had a feeling of immense content and if I thought at all it was that I d like this to go on and on no one going no one coming autumn and winter always loitering around the corner the summer s ripeness lasting forever nothing disturbing the even tenor of my wayThe story is bittersweet though and as much as my heart swells it is also anguished The perfect time comes to its inevitable conclusion The time like any other becomes anthologized into history That which felt never ending ended Chances ran out Opportunities untaken But the older Birkin is aware that perfect moments can stretch into an imperfect life Things could have turned out differently but would they have lasted Is it better that the memories remain totally untainted a glimmering reminder that life can be hopeful warm and gentle This reader was aching for lovers to kiss in the church belfry but instead the fleeting month is chastely frozen in time like a painting full of promise and optimism If I had stayed there would I have always been happy No I suppose not People move away grow older die and the bright belief that there will be another marvellous thing around each corner fades It is now or never we must snatch at happiness as it flies
