Erson who has been thrown back in time thousands of years from a peaceful future society The Genuine Person comes from a people that are androgynous self fertilizing and vegetarian; they live without a national government and. This is one of the stranger books I've read in my time Swastika Night and The End of This Day's Business were deeply philosophical but they were airport novels1 compared to Proud Man which isI have no idea what to even say about this bookThe narrator a sexless human from presumably the far future has no name that they are willing to give to subhumans read us but goes by Verona clever Burdekin They arrive in our time and live both as a man and as a woman exploring and commenting on gender roles and subhuman psychology as they goSpeaking of the psychology this is a book clearly written by someone who read a lot of Freud Everything and I mean everything comes back to sex and mothers and childhood traumaYou can see Burdekin thinking her way through certain ideas even than in the other two novels and she didn't exactly hide the fact that the other two were extended thought experiments The End of This Day's Business than Swastika Night but still For example she spends a long time in the beginning talking about same sex relationships as deviant and perversions but also says that the government should encourage them as a way to control the population and later says they're uite harmless She also acknowledges the existence of gay people in every day society a lot than other novels I've read from this time period I have no idea what Burdekin actually thought about gay people I suspect maybe she didn't know either Daphne Patai refers to the female companion and housemate that she raised children with as her friend throughout the afterward of The End of This Day's Business Since Patai interviewed her companion though not Burdekin who was long dead by then and presumably used this term at her reuest I shall not insinuate about things that we know nothing aboutI also suspected that she didn't know how she felt about the society she created in The End of this Day's Business Burdekin seems to have spent a lot of time sorting out her own mind in novel form I'm not complaining I find her stuff really interesting but I am rather surprised that she managed to get it published Maybe that's my own ignorance of other experimental literture talking thoughSo yeah Not exactly a book I can recommend in the 'go out and read this you'll love it' sort of way but not something I'm sorry to have read eitherNow I want to read uiet Ways by the same author but when I looked it up on World Cat the only libraries that had it were in the UK Somehow I doubt ILL covers international shipping and even if they did I'd feel guilty asking them to1 I have nothing against airport novels They are a perfectly respectable way to pass the time They simply don't tend toward the abstruse and philosophical as a rule is all I'm saying

read Proud Man

Proud ManArtificial social divisions of gender and class Taking on first female then male form the Genuine Person confronts the deeply troubled reality of England in the 1930s still battered after one World War and on the road to anoth. This is an extraordinary book from 1934 Although it does have some of the aspects of Burdekin's later political works highly discursive sketchy characterisation in this case they are neutralised because we see everything from an alien human perspective that is consciously detached from the subhuman culture it has been projected in to The narrator is extremely gentle and there is tenderness and comedy in the story for example the fashionable London party scene As Burdekin archly notes Brave New World does not succeed in escaping the limits of its author's culture but this novel does This book deserves to be reprinted and better known and I wish of Burdekin's work was available unfortunately surviving copies of The Devil Poor Devil will always be hugely expensive until she gets famous and has a full reprint
