The Hotel New Hampshire ¾ “The first of my father’s illusions was that bears could survive the life lived by human beings and the second was that human beings could survive a life led in hotels” So says John Berry son of a hapless dreamer bro It’s been forty years since I read this book It put me on a course that would take me thru almost the entire then extant Irving opus back in those depressing doldrums they called the eightiesSo Irving’s offbeat book helped this offbeat guy through its deification of Murphy’s Law to a murky hilarity that totally reflected my thirtysomething life and yes in the evenings I watched the classic Thirtysomething TV series so go figure how down I was at that sad timeA Time of reflection and angst after the passing of my dear MomDare I revisit the old hotel now?Stay tuned in the warmer time of year after I’ve reread this book it showed me back then I’d only escaped from the seismic shock of the seventies to be met by a muddlesome mid age crisisI have now some several months of unanticipated though virus mandated isolation later acuired an 80’s edition of this book in mint conditionThat copy I will probably give to a young friend who has long wrestled with this selfsame contrariness of happenstance throughout his life as I did Because I believe I now see the key to dismantling that contrariness in my life or in yours which key I’ll now beueath to your common goodThough my friend will relish its topsy turvy world it would now be deleterious to my own well being Why do I say that?Simply because the world as it is is much simpler and workable than Irving’s and all it takes is the clarity that is gained by a lifetime of fortitude in the adverse yoke under which us seekers labour in a world ruled by Murphy’s Lawuantum physics might say the Murphy’s Law life is a parallel and antecedent world to a world that simply and uite peacefully amid the nose of eternal conflict IS In such a way Parmenides saw the world it just IS immutably And its trajectory is eternally circularYou see the phony world is TRYING to habituate us to endless defeat in a Murphy’s World as Irving is in the following suggestion to himself Give it up As the gatekeeper tells Franz KafkaGet this the phony world no matter what age or aeon you live in wants to sell you ITS version of itself Got it? Not the straight and narrow world of pure unprejudiced ISNESS Only its mere fabricationSo it wants us to admit defeat and accept its version of lifeI don’t buy that I KNOW life is simple pure uncluttered Being because I have LIVED that experience And intend to continue doing soAnd that’s why I can no longer read this bookLife is at the same time much simpler and much difficult than that Cause you gotta fight it every inch of the way if you want to reach the summit and “the Road goes on Forever”So I continue to fight just trying toredeem the DreamThe unseen token of the Higher DreamOur Dream takes dedication but it’s real So’s the battleThis is my uest to follow that StarNo matter how hopelessNo matter how FARAnd the end of all our searchingWill be to arrive at the place where we startedAnd KNOW the place for the First TimeBut you know it’s a book my young friend Matthew and YOU might LOVE if you’re in those Sturm und Drang younger years when happenstance is NEVER on your sideAll is now well as the chill winds of imminent fall weather blowAnd I in the late September of my years have made penultimate Peace with a world that always went against my expectations simply by not refusing to bear my Lifelong Cross peaceably as I ALWAYS should have doneAnd another happy ending Irving’s long and hilarious conundrum is now in the permanent possession of my fruitlessly uestioning young friendMay Irving’s ideas fall deep into his fertile spiritual soil Epub ê The Hotel New Hampshire ñ John Irving

John Irving ñ The Hotel New Hampshire Ebook Ther to a cadre of eccentric siblings and chronicler of the lives lived the loves experienced the deaths met and the myriad strange and wonderful times encountered by the family Berry Hoteliers pet bear owners friends of F I've never much liked fancy dress I've never been very good at it either It's my mum's fault really Every Halloween when I was a child my mum would throw a black bin liner over me colour in my nose with her mascara and attach a sock she’d stuffed with newspapers to my bottom before declaring my costume complete Even at seven I was aware of how ridiculous I looked Sometimes I decided to throw on some additional make up or attach a couple of ears to my head just to avoid confusion but that was hard work most years I just wrote ‘CAT’ on a sheet of paper and pinned it to my chest for everyone to see My baby sister had less need to explain her identity to our neighbours but her Ghost disguise – one sheet two eye holes – was another classic in the shite costume genre You know another example of crappy costume? A bearskin And by that I mean the skin of an actual bear which let's face it would look incredibly stupid on a human especially a skinny female human And yet according to this novel a skinny female human automatically becomes a dead ringer for a bear when dressed in this enormous animal's skin and faced with any idiot hotel guest In the real world nobody with a single brain cell would fall for this trick but idiot hotel guests fall for it here Continually It's very annoyingAlso sibling incest Ugh
