    The psychological fallout of wartime inescapable just as it's happening While blitz London has been eclipsed as far as understandings of the horror of world war two goes this was written from still within its grasp in a period that probably seemed likely to continue as indefinitely as the asylum stays and bureaucratic nightmares detailed within Hinging upon a feverish burst of brutality and despair encompassed by a couple pages in the middle this unfold isn two parts the first realistic character studies built primarily out of Kavan's own experiences working in a hospital for war borne psychological traumas upon return from New Zealand though doubtless informed by her own psychiatric ward stays as well and second a series of fanciful or suggestive elaborations often in a distinctive Kavan mode of the suffocating inescapability of disaster Breakdown follows best get a I Am Lazarus Back from the dead yet not alive stuck in a limbo of simulated normality The doctors view him as a great success top marks to the treatment but the patient remains wiped of actual interior understanding acting out motions he cannot understand A highly cynical critical view of a success story that goes well with the sympathetic observation bits of Asylum Piece before itThe Palace of Sleep an unsettling tone poem of the narcosis treatment that Kavan was all too familiar with by the time of writingWho Has Desired the Sea Like the first story this one follows an ostensibly well patient towards the end of his stay with the irrevocable past and its warping effects still bearing down on him even as he's pushed towards the future Futility and despairThe Blackout It's notable that though these earlier tales are mostly convincingly realistic patient case studies Kavan still dips directly into the troubled minds with great finesse and understanding pulling out internal struggles in spasmodic bursts of stream of consciousness and narrative fracture as here or else attempts to render otherwise incomprehensible mental statesGlorious Boys And then a first person narrator who may be Kavan herself in the realistic side of a double picture mirrored into the last story Here having difficulty accepting the proper attitude towards heroism in a situation of global warThe Face of My People The last of the sanitorium case studies perhaps the best and most chilling of a foreigner at a loss among people unable or unwilling to understand himThe Heavenly Adversary a minor transition piece heading us into subjective terrain of the bookending personal bits of Asylum PieceThe Brother The ego straightjacketing itself into destruction Introducing that familiar Kavan stifling sensation but here in somewhat lesser formThe Gannets concentrated malice the presence of incomprehensible evil in an indifferent universe Strangely often refered to as Hitchcockian though it precedes the film and even the de Maurier story that description supposes it was based on by some yearsThe Picture All Kinds of Grief Shall Arrive A Certain Experience Benjo so here's the stretch of shadowy forces uncaring systems sinister inept bureaucrats Lacks the chilling vagueness and personalness of the euivalent bits of Asylum Piece and only foreshadows the developed versions to follow the long story at the end of A Bright Green Field and the culminating novel the excellent Eagles Nest Or even in the last story here for that matterNow I Know Where My Place Is slight but imbued with eerie suggestionOur City best of the sort of piece dominating the second half post Gannets and also the second seemingly autobiographical version of Blitz London But far vivid unsettling and poetic than any of those precedents The city as octopus trap and accuser

    He saw the young man’s face in the mirror up on the wall he saw the thick wind ruffled hair and the little scar on the cheekbone The face moved in the mirror and when he looked round he could not see it anywhere in the room and when he wanted to call out the sickness choked him and now he tried to fight the icy sickness but like whales the waves of it fell on him till he was pounded and drowned and while he froze suffocating and could not move or breathe The grass whispered beneath his wonder tipped fingers dreaming yet still awake If you had been in a sleeping pills coma and it felt like you slept a million years and hadn't slept at all Did the daylight moon swept grasses say that he was lucky? Lazarus risen from real world asylum lie down in are people lucky to be born Did the mute woman's eyes make an appeal? If you heard the animals in the zoo talk to you and you went home ignoring the pleas bidden in your own heart The not very good doctor wishes he had never come I've thought about her for months It doesn't mean anything because she's not real and I think about people who are real and I don't do anythingWhy did the voice sound sad and not indignant when the world does as it is expected and does not give the right picture the answer to the uestion home in the you're a stranger land The voices sound like this Without words as if written by you they take on that life Sleep without rest dreams I despise my Anna Kavan reviews Her worlds own space in head chest and gut The outside the window and what is in it lit up or trapped I take what I read seriously and if I were a story I wouldn't ask for better than me I'll think about it and probably have proof on my face and missed breathing The evidence in my writing always sucks my innards don't prism reflect etc and it is always deeply frustrating I feel a little sick at the prospect of writing another one of these I feel less fake admitting that anyway People look at each other as if they wish them dead If you had another stomach for every time they made you feel sick In her stories you know what they mean when they don't want people like this over anyone else She would write mercy and it feels like another meaning of mercy If you escaped it wasn't that they felt pity for you You were just living in the hell hole they got charge of This is her street I wish that just one time I could even approach what I feel about this without hiding in my crippled descriptions of paranoia and fog and deafness in sky pictures If you were waiting for the ground to swallow you it would be in overhead and if you were praying or just know it is going to come anyway asteroid it would be in the ground once you've stared at it for too long If there was something that existed before this asteroid and swallowed throat puncture feeling that would be what I have about Anna Kavan Her stories run their fingers over that before time whispering and it is that kind of silence It doesn't matter what you say because it was always that way That's worse than paranoia to me or masks without faces or anything I would forget about being creepy if it was just creepy I believe in it My favorite story is Who Has Desired the Sea A man waits to see himself If you lived your life looking in windows and water and everything looked like you could see right through it but lifeless no reflection You wait until the right man comes until you are the right one The confusion and the outside the window voices of his girlfriend or the people in the hospital I feel like I'm waiting for the thing that came before it so I recognize it and it gets worse and worse and emptier and emptier glass The waiting for yourself I know the timeless voice of this guy in her story who is waiting for that in his glass head with the swinging pendulum Walk around and feel like you're under water I know when I feel like that if someone else says it This is my favorite story because it makes me feel like an underwater sea monster looking in a mirror and you don't know you're the monster This is what it must look like to someone who doesn't want anyone else there They want to feel right and you're wrong It is the other side of the glass If I read it in her story I feel like I can sense other things at once the things that I'm not even looking at the why of the horror Violets bloom inviolably and I know them and what it is about It's in a mental picture underneath one where it is past too late in a doomed story If I try to talk about it is all wrong and I'm writing talk talk talk that doesn't know what it feels like to hear without sound My reviews are bull shit but I hope an echo of the under water feeling came through At least if I look into the drowned eyes I can listen with drowned eyes There is I believe a kind of telepathy between the condemned a sort of intuitive recognition which can even make itself felt through the medium of the printed page How else should I feel—without fear of appearing presumptuous either—for this great man whom I never saw and to whom I could not have spoken the tender wincing pathetic solicitude that painfully comes into being only between fellow sufferers?


  3. Blair Blair says:

    The stories in I Am Lazarus first published in 1945 are concerned with war and its aftermath Indeed at its beginning the book seems saturated with sorrow and loss a grey wash and the first few stories paint similarly bleak pictures of young men with PTSD in some cases suggesting they would have been better off without treatment Then comes the transcendent 'Glorious Boys' a story in which every sentence is a grenade It's alive and crackling with energy but not pleasantly alive and crackling with energy like you feel when you're having a panic attack 'The Brother' is grief as a horror story 'The Gannets' is a two page scream against human cruelty that evokes 'The Birds' interestingly Kavan's story predates du Maurier's Something about 'The Picture' its atmosphere of torment and humiliation really got to me 'All Kinds of Grief Shall Arrive' 'Benjo' and 'Our City' form a trio of tales of surreal bureaucracy harking back to Asylum Piece in which 'official procedure' and 'the authorities' are shadowy shape shifting enemies This is not a perfect collection – it sometimes feels that the stories are a little mismatched – but it's filled with glimmers of Kavan's uniue style and inimitable skill at portraying the isolation of madness and sadnessStories in this book 'I Am Lazarus' 'The Palace of Sleep' 'Who Has Desired the Sea' 'The Blackout' 'Glorious Boys' 'The Face of My People' 'The Heavenly Adversary' 'The Brother' 'The Gannets' 'The Picture' 'All Kinds of Grief Shall Arrive' 'A Certain Experience' 'Benjo' 'Now I Know Where My Place Is' 'Our City'TinyLetter

    The first section of short stories in I am Lazarus relate to mental illness and institutionalized patients After the second world war Kavan who had struggled for many years with her own mental illness assisted with the returning soldiers in what was then termed effort syndrome or soldier's heart now referred to as Post Traumatic Stress The stories in this section are told from both the patients' and the caretaker's perspective and they engender the confusion the melancholy and the sadness of the situationWhile this was a strong collection overall five stories stood out to meThe Gannets is only a few pages but strong in tone and setting It predates Hitchcock's The Birds but achieves that same eerie turn of events The Brothers things said and unsaidThe Picture and All Kinds of Grief Shall Arrive pull from an individual confusion and anxiety when those around you don't understand you often resulting in one uestioning their own memories or sanity Reminiscent of Kafka These stories are unsettling but also very readable The reader is placed right in the middle of the actions with the characters and even with very little context and background are able to know and empathize with what is happeningBenjo had a sinister and otherworldly uality that I likedKavan wrote a number of novels and short stories and I'll definitely be back This collection was an early work and other reviewers have noted the seeds for her later and better known novels like Ice


  5. James Tingle James Tingle says:

    I am Lazarus is a collection of short stories all set in the period of the second world war and generally most are set in Blitz time London Kavan is a really good writer and draws the reader into the stories with her elegant poetic prose style which seems very effortless and flows brilliantly A lot of the subject matter involves old style asylums and the patients which sounds depressing but because of the silky smooth delivery I didn't find them too gloomy touching and slightly melancholic Other stories veer away from the asylums and tread different territory but all seem to have a haunting surreal aura about them leaving you wondering about the conclusions afterwards I found I have read three of her books now and this one is a great starting point for someone uninitiated in Kavan's unusual works some stories being uite long others much shorter but all really memorable and curious in the best way possible Why this book has so few reviews is uite astounding really


  6. Jeff Miller Jeff Miller says:

    I was slightly nervous about reading Anna Kavan for the first time mainly because I know that even though she’s not a household name for those who read her they are passionately loyal; as it is I should have had no such concernsI Am Lazarus is a collection of 15 stories some uite short published in 1945 and clearly driven from her own experiences Some I read as direct experience presented without comment given to us the reader as a window into some of the smaller details that would easily be lost ignored or forgotten by the history writers These are not all action stories tales of bravery against insurmountable enemy or recovery against all the oddsthese are what could easily be labelled as ‘other’; the stories that don’t get told as they serve no purpose for the greater war effort – but be told they must and Anna Kavan does it perfectly The title story ‘I Am Lazarus’ that opens the book is a perfect example as is ‘Who Has Desired The Sea’ However it’s when Kavan turns inwards and stops observing that the strongest writing comes forward; the final story of the book ‘Our City’ brings everything together and left me with an unusual response to any book – hopelessness Not that things can’t get better but that they probably won’t; and yet the narrator cannot just accept that and a single slither of hope exists despite her effort to extinguish it“I am the enemy of this indestructible pitiless hope that prolongs and intensifies all my pain I would like to lay hold of hope and strangle it once and for all”This is not angst this is understanding pain at its very coreI look forward to reading and will turn to her novels next


  7. Sarah Sarah says:

    There's some beautiful phrasing in this Individually the stories are well crafted But for me something was lacking The collection overall felt somehow incomplete I missed the lush prose the splintered psyche the fevered surrealism the tigers the blood and the roses It's all there to a degree but the predominant impression left upon me is just a dull gray ache I wanted to be startled immersed I wanted to see the thorn fully extractedStill it's Anna Kavan She's Anna Kavan and she published a book Enough said


  8. Maia Maia says:

    intense and good at atmosphere but very 'first' 'unedited' goes very downhill in uality as goes along Read about half not essential like Janet Frame but well worth reading and interesting for what it covers mental health experiences in midcentury Britain some generally interesting postwar and migration aspects too I won't finish it or feel guilty about that but i read half and it's worth reading i'd say to others It is not linked short stories Interest high Writing highly variable but that means a couple of top uality short stories


  9. Steve Dewey Steve Dewey says:

    I've read various novellas by Anna Kavan over the years Ice Sleep Has His House and Who Are You? The first two I read a very long time ago and can remember little about them although I know they intrigued me enough to continue exploring her work The last I read only recently and while it was enjoyable enough it wasn't particularly memorable Still Kavan continues to interest me so I thought I'd try this collection of short stories The stories reflect in part Kavan's time in London during World War II and her work at a psychiatric hospital for soldiers The stories therefore tend to be dark with neurotic subjects As is often the case with short story collections some stories are enjoyable some not so much In particular I found this collection slow to start and it wasn't until about thirty pages in with a story called The Blackout that I found myself becoming engagedSome of the stories are very short and feel as if they were notes or experiments for longer novels And certainly a couple of the stories have thematic similarities dealing with a shadowy bureaucracy and a delayed and confusing trial reminiscent of The Trial and I felt these were experiments towards a novel; I was unsurprised to find that her posthumously published Guilty involves a Kafkaesue bureaucracyThese short stories are then probably not the best introduction to Kavan; they might instead provide for those already familiar with her work insight into the obsessions and interests that inform Ice or Sleep Has His House Indeed it is those novels I would suggest to those interested in exploring Kavan

    Madness is a ripe subject for artistic exploration Anna Kavan makes a fascinating study with her short stories drawn from her experience during the war and nervous breakdown The best of her stories are those that focus on mental illness independent and related to the Second World War The reader may be left wanting but this is only the first of many thematic explorations the seed that announced a drastic shift in her life and work
