Or because his protagonist is a miserable, wandering writer of the old breed, Why does everyone love this book so much? Or because his protagonist is a miserable, wandering writer of the old breed, whose cigarette-smoking, whore-befriending, devil-may-care companion is his role model and raison d'etre?
Or is it because he writes about poor Jewish anarchist immigrant refugees, and we can all get behind that?
It hooked me Well I'll tell you what. I was bored to tears. What does our aforesaid protagonist writer-man want to share with us so badly that he has to take us to a slew of post-Soviet sad scenes casinos, brothels, cafe after cafe and drone on for so long about his childhood he wasn't even in Sarajevo during the war!
And guess what? Writer-man and macho-friend drink strong coffee! And look at blond girls! And smoke cigarettes! And sit in depressing hotel rooms!
And drink more coffee! And by the by, what does any of this dreary misguided misogynist rambling have to do with Lazarus, the dead immigrant Jew whose story which constitutes the interesting half of the book writer-man is in Eastern Europe to research in the first place?
Yes, it is impressive that Hemon writes in his second language, and yes, his writing is itself a lovely thing. But master story-teller he is not, and comparisons to Nabokov strike me as absurd.
This book is not a story, but a jumble of scenes of Hemon's past, some beautifully painted, others dull, none of which fit together to become the journey we are prepared to experience.
What does writer-man find? What is he looking for? I will never know, because I started having the kind of panic attacks interspersed with restlessness that I had while trying to read Milan Kundera's "Unbearable Lightness of Being.
Let me just say I do realize this is the pot calling the kettle black. So I say skip it, until Hemon realizes he should just buy a journal and write his memoir.
Because unlike the talking heads of the literary elite, I was reading to bring forth the ghost of Lazarus. Hear his story, come to terms with his devils, imagine his world.
Not Hemon's. Sep 04, Nick rated it really liked it. Hemon is that rarest of all writers, rarer still for being an immigrant, whose prose has vigor without losing purpose, who can build an intricate, time- and story-shifting plot without making it seem like unnecessary fireworks.
And yet his prose retains a flavor of his East European mordancy, the wit of someone born in a country that no longer exists. The central character is Vladimir Brik, an immigrant like Hemon from Sarajevo who is fascinated with the real story of Lazarus Averbukh, a ninetee Hemon is that rarest of all writers, rarer still for being an immigrant, whose prose has vigor without losing purpose, who can build an intricate, time- and story-shifting plot without making it seem like unnecessary fireworks.
The central character is Vladimir Brik, an immigrant like Hemon from Sarajevo who is fascinated with the real story of Lazarus Averbukh, a nineteen year old who fled to America from a pogrom in an area now located in an area that is a backwater even for Moldova.
In , Averbukh went to the house of the Chicago Chief of Police to give him a letter. The Chief of Police killed Averbukh; Hemon re-creates the hysteria of the times, the efforts of the police and the press to paint Averbukh as an anarchist assassin, the efforts of Lazarus' sister to reclaim his remains and some sort of life for herself she eventually returned to Europe, where it is thought she perished under Nazism.
This is interwoven, at times in sequential passages, with Brik's picaresque and ultimately fruitless effort to find traces of Averbukh's European past.
Fortunately, Hemon provides Brik with both a voice that is irreverent and questioning. The idea of knitting together Rora's jokes and stories of the Bosnian-Serb war, Olga's struggles to do right by her younger brother despite the sinister police, the blowhard newspaperman, and her fellow immigrants , and Brik's meditations on his Sarajevo past and adjusting to his American wife and her family, seems like it would topple under its own weight.
But it works, somehow, as a unity, and what emerges is a deeply-felt and argued discussion of what it can mean to tell stories.
The only writer who I've ever read who can make a similar whole out of what seems chaotic along the way is Roberto Banuelos in the "Savage Detectives.
Aleksandar Hemon has been on my radar screen since The Question of Bruno, which I read a while ago and remembered quite fondly, but what with one thing and another, I let his works slide by me, and then, several months ago, I noticed The Lazarus Project remaindered in paperback, and I thought, oh, right, that's The Question of Bruno guy, and I bought it, and it sat on a pile of books by the front door, waiting for me to grab on my way to the subway.

Oh, and yes, I've kept up with Hemon's appearances in The New Yorker--again, I thought, hey, this guy is really good.
So then I hadn't been taking the subway for a while because my girlfriend has been helping me get to work, which is great, and I love her, and so forth, but a few days ago, circumstances prevented her giving me a ride, and so I grabbed The Lazarus Project and headed out the door.
And then I damn near missed my stop. This is a book that you start and you think, wow, this guy is really good, and then you keep reading because you can't stop , and then you think, holy crap, this guy is REALLY really good, and the pages burn through your hands because you cannot stop, and--now, here, we come specifically to this novel--you realize that this book is not merely good.
It's great, and when I say great, I don't mean, you know, as great as the last great Stephen King novel great, or as great as the last page-turner you finished great.
The Lazarus Project is a great novel on the order of. Bruno Schulz. Franz Kafka. Amazing , or the scope of the novel.
Incidentally, it's structured as a kind of parallel story--at the moment, I'm reminded of Murakami's Kafka on the Shore or his earlier Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, though Hemon's use of history is closer to The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.
I absolutely cannot wait to read this again. I probably won't. Jul 06, Knitography rated it liked it Shelves: fiction-other.
The Lazarus Project consists two intertwined threads; in Lazarus Averbuch, a Russian immigrant and pogrom survivor is shot by the Chicago chief of police.
The story is told from the perspective of his sister Olga as she tries to make sense of her loss.
In the present, Vladamir Brik, a writer and Bosnian immigrant, is researching Lazarus' story, hoping to turn it into a book. Those parts of the book set in were well-written and enjoyable to read.
The author really succeeded at getting in The Lazarus Project consists two intertwined threads; in Lazarus Averbuch, a Russian immigrant and pogrom survivor is shot by the Chicago chief of police.
The author really succeeded at getting into Olga's head; as a reader I cared about her and was interested in how her story would play out.
The transitions from past to present and back again were smooth, but unfortunately the parts of the book set in the present were a real disappointment.
The Vladamir Brik chapters all followed the same formula - a lot of annoying self-flagellation from Brik with a few stories from his friend Rora mixed in.
Brik simply isn't a likable character; I quickly got tired of his ceaseless whining and didn't really care what happened to him. Rora is a more interesting character and perhaps he was meant to be, but as the story is told from Brik's perspective, not liking him really detracted from my reading enjoyment.
It's not really a good sign when you wish the narrator would SHUT UP ALREADY. It was also clear very early on what was going to happen with the Brik and Rora characters, so essentially you're just slogging through that storyline to get back to Olga, and eventually the end of the book.
A combination of stubbornness and enjoyment of the Olga storyline kept me reading, but in the end this wasn't a satisfying read. I think the book could have been a lot better, and it almost had some interesting things to say about immigration, citizenship, and the concept of "home" - almost.
Jul 01, Matt rated it really liked it. I should say up front, Aleks Hemon is one of the two or three living writers that I like most, who I am most excited when I see that they have a new book.

Hemon's version intercuts that present day story with the turn of the century murder of an immigrant Jew connected, loosely and inaccurately, with anarchists in Chicago.
It's a tantalizing possibility, the crossover between the immigration-reverse immigration thing, but I'm not sure it totally works here.
There are some stirring observations in Hemon's book, and some interesting stories told, through the narrator's traveling companion-- but somehow the incidents never really reach that level of crispness where we see better what they are leading toward.
And the story in the past seems equally beset by ambivalence about what, exactly, it wants, lurching from social critique to story of the murdered man's sister, and resolving even that story inconclusively It's just weird, because there's a lot to like here, but the book feels a little bit restrained, never quite reaching the manic pitch of Nowhere Man that made you believe it had to all hold together.
This feels a little overworked, a little too edited, and the result is a mess of stuff that for me at least didn't quite connect. Jan 31, rmn rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction.
A surprisingly perceptive and intriguing novel juxtaposing the life and subsequent murder of a Jewish immigrant to the United States in the early s after he had escaped from a Ukranian pogrom, with the life of the protagonist and his friend who each immigrated to the US from Bosnia one before the Yugoslavian civil war and the other after.

The protagonist is a Bosnian writer living in present day Chicago who wants to write a book about the murder of an accused anarchist in by the Chicago Chief of Police.
To get the full back story on the victim, he takes a long lost childhood friend of his on a journey through Eastern Europe where they ruminate on the war, the actions of individuals, the existence of cultural differences and what it is to be American, and the meaning of home.
This is a really well written book from a structural standpoint and from a language standpoint. Aug 21, Ashaspencer rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Choua.
This book is by a Serbian writer who has been living in Chicago since The author lived in Uptown and Andersonville -the two neighborhoods in Chicago that I grew up in.
The book begins in these neighborhoods, and then follows the main character on a trip across Eastern Europe - prague, vienna, budapest, etc.

The novel discusses the intricacies of establishing one's place in a country or city where one doesn't feel completely at home, when one no longer has another place that can truly be considered home either.
View all 3 comments. Jun 12, Ruth rated it really liked it. This book weaves back and forth between past and present. At first it's a little confusing, but stick with it.
The writing is clear, intelligent, witty and beautiful. Best book I've read in some time. Nov 20, Matt Vargo rated it really liked it. Whoa, now this is quite the immigrant tale.
The gist of it is that when you immigrate you lose your identity which is a kind of death. Then you have to face death again, which is twice as liberal since you already know how awful death is.
The story of Lazarus is obviously in play with that. The joke being - how mad was Lazarus when he realized he had to face death again? There are a lot of Jonathan Foer style magical elements in the story.
It covers the pograms of Russia in the early 20th centur Whoa, now this is quite the immigrant tale. It covers the pograms of Russia in the early 20th century and a Bosnian dude going back home.
Heavy stuff. I wanted to like this, I really did. But it just seemed to drag, and I kept catching myself getting distracted and daydreaming while reading or just wishing I was done already.
I had a hard time liking or being able to relate to the characters. The beginning and end were the most interesting parts to me, the middle lost me.
One positive I will say is that I enjoy some of the subtle details mirrored in the two stories. Total disappointment overall.
Jul 26, Stuart added it. This book was original, absorbing and yet confusing. To add to my confusion, some of the names are the same in and For example, the Chicago Tribune reporter in is called Miller, as is a journalist who features prominently in the third story in the book.
Similarly, the police investigator in Schuettler is the same name as the person who can give grants to writers in Rora and Vladimir knew each other in Sarajevo prior to the war, but Rora stayed behind and his adventures which may or may not be imaginary form the third narrative of the book.
Rora also livens up the book with periodic jokes about the legendary Bosnian character Mujo and his reaction to impossible situations. As a fourth story, Vladimir describes his own history, and meeting with his American wife and the state of their marriage.
And finally, I found it very difficult to separate the author himself from the character of Vladimir Brik, as the book itself was obviously the result of the journey, and seems very autobiographical.
Having listed all that confusion, however, the fact is that it worked well, if you read it at a stretch. Putting it down and coming back to it was more problematic for me, in that I had to try to remember where I was — am I in Ukraine or Chicago ?
I really liked the Chicago bits — the evocation of the lot of immigrants and the whole atmosphere of fear of anarchy that was going on at the time was splendidly described.
The author has created a very believable history of how Lazarus lived through the pogroms in the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, found his way to Chicago and then ended up a victim of the Chief of Police, and almost a symbol of both the anarchist movement and the born-again Christian movement who are interested in having him seen to be born again, due to his name.
The journey through the modern states of Ukraine, Moldova, through to Bosnia is quite sad, showing people making money any way they can, and in some ways reflecting back to where people did the same thing.

View All Critic Reviews 5. Apr 06, If you saw Shutter Island then, in essence, you've seen this as well : hero investigates the staff at a remote psych facility for some unnamed malfeasance.
Walker holds this one down okay Kevin M. W Super Reviewer. Dec 03, Ok, well, I thought that this was a decent movie.
Paul Walker did a great job, as did the entire cast. Some people compare this to Shutter Island. Ok, I admit it was a similar premise, but I didn't like Shutter Island I DO, however, wish that they had ended this movie differently.
I was left with a little of that "now what" feeling. But, I didn't dislike the ending enough to take away from my rating. This was more of a drama, than a thriller, though.
Cynthia S Super Reviewer. Nov 13, Paul Walker plays a character sentenced to death - but wakes up after his lethal injections to a new world, or is it?
This was supposed to be a psychological thriller in which I thought did its part throughout the majority of the movie. Within the last half hour it starts to unravel to the point in which it's not technically a psychological thriller in my opinion at all but a dramatic film based on the morals of humanity; the choices and mistakes we all make as humans; and the response to correcting those who make those mistakes.
The correctional system is an interesting concept to me maybe because I am a student in Criminal Justice but noting the fact that our system jails individuals by the masses x the population of other countries and our crime rates while they've decreased since mass incarceration has started still doesn't reflect the lesser crime rates of countries who jail at slower rates - brings about questions of rehabilitation, our over population of prison inmates, and the inhumane responses we take to try to curb society for our own gratitude.
The American prison system despite the 12million individuals that circulate through it each year is one of the best kept secrets in the country hiding the conditions and inhumanity that goes on inside them from assaults, humiliation, rape, and the subject to deadly diseases that our Government fails to treat prior or take notice in before releasing them back into society on us.
While this all fact, and this movie itself as a response was fiction, the movie in my opinion was less about the story inside the movie and more about the future of our prison system that we all can either continue to ignore "Kill you?
But to the rest of the world, you're already dead" or humanity can wake up and understand even those on the inside deserve forgiveness and some sort of dignity.
I was an obvious fan of the thoughts it left you with, the awareness of what could happen without us ever even considering or knowing and what does happen not in this movie but other issues , and the greater morals behind the film.
The film itself was great and dark throughout it but the ending was slightly bland, a bit predictable, with questions on how that'd even be a possible scenario after what was supposed to have happened previously in the prison.
Will not say that as to not spoil the movie on here - but anyone else who has seen the movie should pick up on what I mean Pretty good film, but best for that in which it brought to mind and awareness off film.
Bobby H Super Reviewer. The Lazarus Project is a serious drama that gradually works its way into a solid thriller.
It almost succeeds as well, with there being a few white-knuckled horror moments in the final 30 minutes that deliver some hair raising jolts.
It all could have been a much better film though with a stronger lead, someone that could build on the dramatic first hour to make the final moments truly work.
I like Paul Walker, he was an earnest actor, but a film like this that requires strong character work from its lead was not his forte.
I feel like giving this film a pat on the back, because the direction is quite good, the writing isn't half bad and it…. A man thinking he has died comes back to life working as a groundskeeper at an asylum.
Where he faced with the fact that he might be insane after accidentally taking the life of his wife and daughter, or ha he now?? Another Great Paul Walker Movie Really In Enjoyed Every Minute Of This Movie Paul Walker Was Great.
Interesting shots and cinematography at times but backed by a somewhat lackluster story once the shock of the mystery wears off.
But most importantly, points for Linda Cardellini. If this is only 99 minutes long, as the official runtime claims, why does it feel like I've been watching it for 8 hours?
This movie is different; the whole time I was watching I couldn't figure out if I was liking it or not. It is really slow and makes you question what the movie is actually about.
There is also something a little strange about watching a movie that doesn't have a score or soundtrack to it. The most slow burn movie I've ever watched, and when it felt like something was going to happen, nothing did.
Still love Paul Walker tho.Hollywood had started to getting boring Queen Of The South Besetzung last few months and this movie breaks that numbness. I think the book could have been a lot better, and it almost had some interesting things to say about immigration, citizenship, and the concept of "home" - almost. The Wilds.
