How the Night is Divided - new book

ISBN: 9780929701332

ID: 534225926

Poet Matlin´s debut novel - set in the 40´s and early 50´s on the southern California chaparral close to the Mohave Desert - brings to life a Jewish family who raise roses and a Kiowa Okie who serves as a memory bank for Indian and local lore. Tom Green, the Kiowa Okie, knows how to irrigate, and so he helps the immigrant Jews, even though ´´In the local papers the local people complained about the herd of Jews being kept there.´´ Like the Jews, who hire concentration camp survivors and live almost as much in the spirit of their racial history as they do on their farm, Green - who´s in love with Anna, an old actress - is a repository of history. The book, narrated mostly by one of the Jewish farmer´s children, juxtaposes the two very different sorts of history, textures the narrative with atmospheric detail, and brings all the various tribes together at the end for the Rancho ride - a great ritual and an occasion for celebration. Matlin takes us along via the farmer´s son to explore the chaparral in late August, the Santa Arm winds (´´Once the wind gets into a house there was no telling what it or the things it carried might do´´), and earthquakes, landslides, bougainvillea, rains, the method of packing a tractor-trailer, and the seasonal vicissitudes of growing roses and growing up. Green´s story, on the other hand, is about poverty, day-to-day survival, drugs, and, more pleasantly, his line of ´´Butterfly Dreamers´´ - women who prophesy the future from the whisper of the insects´ wings. This has as much to do with history as with fiction (Matlin also packs in an essay on rose tending from ancient times to the present), but its sense of place is dead to rights. Short on plot and character, then, but with narrative charms that more than compensate.

Second printing. Originally issued as an Autograph Edition of 1000 numbered and signed copies. A story of the Southern California chaparral as it edges toward the Mohave Desert, and of the people there in the 1940s and early 1950s, Jews, who were among the first rose farmers, and who cut out a chunk of it and sometimes disintegrated from the passions of the settlement that made them. They raised and hybridized roses, roses were their livelihood and their passion, but they also smuggled arms to Israel, and were almost murderously divided over Stalin, over Spain, over water. This book is also about an Oklahoma-raised Kiowa Indian, Tom Green, who befriends the farmer and his family, and who is presented against his psychic background of dreams, voices and disappearances brought to this place of rose fields. From the annihilation of the ancient redwoods to the grizzly-hunting vaqueros in live oak canyons, How the Night Is Divided carries western life into the central drama of 20th-century existence. An experience of viscerally emotional and intellectual excitement: here is a novel that takes the reader to the edge, and refuses to let the reader back away. contemporary,fiction,literature and fiction Literature & Fiction, McPherson & Company
