I was twelve years old the first time I walked on water The man in the black clothes taught me how to do it and I m not going to pretend I learned that trick overnight Mr Vertigo is the story of Walter Rawley who recounts how at the age of nine he made a pact with the man who promised to teach him how to fly Master Yehudi spotted young Walt on the streets of Saint Louis sweeping the foul mouthed and lonely kid off the ground with his promise Yehudi swears that if he fails to teach Walt how to fly by his thirteenth birthday he can hop off his head with an axe After weighing his options young Walt decides to take the risk and go away with Yehudi rather than live a gloomy life of an orphan on the streets Saint Louis The year was 1927 just two years short of the stock market crash which started the Depression the year of Babe Ruth and Charles Lindbergh the precise year when night started to fall on the world foreverWalt is taken by Master Yehudi to a farm in a remote region of rural Kansas the big sky country far away from everywhere but not lonely Yehudi introduces him to Aesop a young black cripple of extraordinary intelligence for whom he predicts great things and Mother Sioux his housekeeper and a grandniece of Chief Sitting Bull Being the kid that he is Walk soon tries to run away from his education but no matter where he goes he always finds Master Yehudi waiting for him with a smile Realizing that he cannot escape Walt surrenders and gives himself in to Master Yehudi s Flight course in 33 stages Yehudi believes that people are not able to lift themselves off

Master Yehudi believes will Walt be able to let go of what he was defy gravity and lift himself off the ground Walt manages this in unexpected circumstances and his new life takes off he becomes Walt the WonderBoy and walks on water for the first time in the same year that Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic Mr Vertigo can be divided into two halves The first part where Walt meets Master Yehudi and lives with him and his companions in his Kansas estate is engrossing and full of mystery and a sense of wonder Rural Kansas is far away from Disney s Neverland and mastering the art of flight is a process full of hardships for young and unruly child that Walt is at the beginning of the novel Walt is a strong willed know all street smart kid not unlike Mark Twain s Huck Finn irritated and fascinated by the inscrutable Master Yehudi whom he can t figure out Walt s determination turns into a strange loyalty to Master Yehudi and eventually becomes genuine devotion and admirationThe second part which takes takes Walt across the country in with his flying theatrics remains captivating but loses the joy of discovery that the first one had Despite being fantastical it has an air of seriousness which is obviously understandable as Walt matures and learns about people around him As Walt soars higher into the air characters which previously seemed to be larger than life are stripped from the cloak of mystery surrounding them and revealed as frail and fractured Although this reversal serves its purpose the sense of mystery which made the first part so readable is largely diminished Walt s life remains adventurous full of rumble and tumble of the 20th century and an evolving nation with its famous people and places but there s a sense of loss penetrating the pages it s unavoidable as characters and people mature and sometimes make bad decisions which have their conseuences and can flip their lives on its head Mr Vertigo is as much about being able to move on after suffering a loss of something important as it is from being able to embrace it in the first placeFor such a short novel it s under 300 pages Mr Vertigo is reasonably succesful given the fact that it s Paul Auster s clearest attempt at writing a picaresue novel with a likable rogue protagonist and a cast of memorable supporting character together with seamless employment of different themes which aim to mirror the development of a whole nation and a great opening line to boot Not much to dislike here but possibly much pleasure to be found within its pages Asperger Leben in zwei

Reading this book I couldn t stop thinking about a very different author Paul Coelho who wrote a very similar kind of novel The Alchemist Both of them are a parable than a book a motivational speaking seminar designed to make you wake up and realize the miracles that you yes YOU could make happen if you only dared to believe they were possible In Mr Vertigo the feat is flying in the Alchemist it s becoming the wind or something of the sort Mr Vertigo s telling is nuanced has a far entertaining voice to guide you along and was I thought moving The book spans an entire lifetime in a short set of chapters and I ve always been a sucker for films books or songs that try to capture so long a span of time in so compact a medium Even a so so comedy like Walk Hard or a brief song like Time by Pink Floyd has something poignant behind it These pieces do what we cannot normally do ourselves examine our mortality from an outside perspective On a basic level we all know that life is short youth is fleeting and that only some accomplishments will follow you a lifetime But in practice it s ridiculously easy to push it to the back of your head to let small things suck up your time see Facebook to lose sight of the big picture in favor of the passing thrill People do it all the time and many do it their whole lives These movies and books remind us that when the time comes to make your 120 minute biopic you might not like what you see Books like this especially when artfully written as Auster s may be summed up with a corny moral we ve all heard before Seize the day life is short etc but that they can make us stop just for a day or even a moment and truly reflect on where we are in our lives makes them crucially important They can provoke us to ask the uestions we should be asking every day but avoid out of laziness fear and comfort am I a good person Am I doing everything I can do better myself Am I letting petty and small things get in the way of lasting peace So corny or not I think this book is worthwhile reading for everyone
