Body Art (2001)

par Don DeLillo

A stunning novel by the bestselling National Book Award-winning author of White Noise and Underworld. Since the publication of his first novel Americana, Don DeLillo has lived in the skin of our times. He has found a voice for the forgotten souls who haunt the fringes of our culture and for its larger-than-life, real-life figures. His language is defiantly, radiantly American. In The Body Artist his spare, seductive twelfth novel, he inhabits the muted world of Lauren Hartke, an artist whose work defies the limits of the body. Lauren is living on a lonely coast, in a rambling rented house, where she encounters a strange, ageless man, a man with uncanny knowledge of her own life. Together they begin a journey into the wilderness of time, love and human perception. The Body Artist is a haunting, beautiful and profoundly moving novel from one of the finest writers of our time.… (plus d'informations)

What an odd little book. A bit more than a novella, set in an unnamed state. An artist, grief, a rented house, and...a ghost? This was not an especially fun or interesting read--but now that I am done, I wish I had someone to discuss it with. Who is Mr Tuttle? Is he a person? Or is he a ghost (the young Rey)? Or is he a total figment of Lauren's imagination, as she works toward her new (very odd and awful-sounding) performance piece? Is he her rehearsing? I am inclined to think the latter, but this book would make for a great book group discussion.

(spoilers below)
Lauren Hartke is Rey Robles' 3rd and current wife. After breakfast with her in their rented country home, he drives off to Manhattan to kill himself in his first wife's apartment.

When she returns, she finds Mr Tuttle in the house, a man who speaks in riddles and is a masterful mimic. She is unconcerned about having a strange man in the house, but is concerned about where he belongs and if his caretakers are looking for him. Is he mentally disabled? Suffering from a speech disorder? Is he a ghost?

Then we get a review of Lauren's latest performance. As "The Body Artist" she plucks, bleaches, dyes, trims, and otherwise adjusts her body to play her characters. And the goal of this show is to be...dull? To make people aware of time. It sounds terrible and pretentious and people do walk out. Mr Tuttle seems to be a character--or he is part of multiple characters. Is he just her rehearsing? Or did she actually dream him in creating her show? I lean toward him being one of her characters, and her conversations and tapings were her as herself and her as Mr Tuttle. Rehearsing, practicing, perfecting. ( )

It was an okay book. Strange but interesting enough to keep reading it. Another short read from the list. ( )
