Read Moses Ascending 109 Together with a penchant for early wholesome philosophizing form the basis of this boo. Having studied The Lonely Londoners for one of my Uni modules which was a BRILLIANT book I eagerly downloaded Moses Ascending onto my Kindle to find out what happens to the hero narrator Moses Aloetta next Moses is one of a community of black immigrants from the West Indies The Windrush generation who emigrated to England after WW2 to help re build the war ravaged cities As his name suggests Moses takes on the leadership of this community within their strange Promised Land of London Moses Ascending picks up several years after the final scene of The Lonely Londoners Moses now being a man of property enjoying relatively high social status But he gets himself into a few comical scrapes which leave him in very different circumstances and a changed man Love the inter textual links with DeFoe s Robinson Crusoe in this trilogy the final one being Moses Migrating and the comedy really does make you laugh out loud whilst at the same time cringe at the stigma and stereotypes that are prevalent towards the racial other in society May 2015 Have just re read this novel in preparation for a Uni essay Love it even the second time around so it goes from three to five stars

Read Moses Ascending 109 The derelict house in Shepherd's Bush that Moses takes on becomes the scene for a topsy. When I read this book for class I thought it was a satire of something that might have happened in 1970s London I even sort of enjoyed it though the treatment of Brenda and the racism in the book was jarring at times Then I read the introduction While the author was satirizing some things he apparently was not joking when writing the out of control misogyny in this novel The best thing about this book is that years later the author was slapped at an event by a female activist for his horrid portrayal of women in his booksFor a man writing about a character who supposedly had sex with hundreds of white women and managed to get Brenda to sleep with him even after he let his friend try to rape her without interfering this author seems to have neither respect for nor an understanding of womenIt s not an awful book I am not so blinding by anger right now that I cannot see the redeeming ualities of the prose But man Ugh

Read Moses Ascending 109 Turvy irreverent seuence of events The account of his attempts to cope with situations. The biggest thing I can say about this is that it could have been written yesterday with its issues of racial tensions anti Islamic comments and refugees I m not entirely sure what the point of the novel was as Moses is a very strange narrator but it was okay
