summary Consolation

summary Consolation Michael Redhill ↠ 0 characters Consolation summary ß 100 It is 1856 Toronto Unable to make a living in the New World from his trade English apothecary JG Hallam takes up the new science of photography and embarks on a grand project to document the bleak young city But returning from an exhibition of these images in England Hallam's ship is lost in a violent storm on Lake Ontario and the strongbox ho. He put it a recently excavated clay pipe into my hand and closed my fingers over it and he said the past really happened You held it in your hand You know something most people don t Consolation 435 Consolation changed the way I look at Toronto the city where I live This was not only because it asked me to imagine things like black bears walking down King St or a graveyard in fact a necropolis at the now busy intersection of Yonge and Bloor which added a vivid historical layer to these locations but also because it illustrated that knowing something about how my home city grew from woodland to metropolis is important Redhill s book show that a place so full of significance to me by virtue of its familiarity was invested with value and meaning by people who died long before I existed To carry a heightened awareness of this the idea of the possibility of this is to experience your city differently But Consolation is not just a pean to Toronto and its history Redhill s novel also elegantly and movingly explores themes of loss and family The story s split between two periods facilitates this well In sections set in the present the reader slowly collects a portrait of David an ALS afflicted father and husband whose academic discovery and death sets the plot in motion through his grieving family Each member struggles to define what the absence of David means to them and as they go a picture of David becomes present for the reader The other sections of the book that take place in 1850s Toronto provide a structural inversion In 1850s Toronto it is the father and husband Jem that grapples with the absence of his family who remain in England a three week postal delay away A failing business and loneliness presses him toward new friendships and opportunities and in creating them Jem gains a deeper understanding of himself Similarly elegant symmetries abound in this book as does Redhill s beautiful insightful prose Both work together to illustrate among other many things that the connections between past and present are not as faint as we it is sometimes all too easy to precieve them to be

summary Consolation Michael Redhill ↠ 0 characters Consolation summary ß 100 OlleaguesThree months later Hollis is dead and his grieving widow Marianne embarks on a furtive unsettling uest to vindicate her husband From her hotel room overlooking the excavation site where the arena is to stand she watches and waits for a piece of the past to reappear that might alleviate the anguish of these civic and private vanishings. I think this book was too complex for the state of mind I was in while reading it I loved the idea of a historical novel focused on early photographic techniues in Toronto as well as the archeological nature of the story I liked the idea of the layers of history building on one another and later being uncovered in reverse orderI think I loved the concept than the actual bookThere were some flashes of brilliance especially towards the end Redhill is a clever writer but sometimes it felt like he was too clever for me I kept wondering if I was missing thingsdid some key part of the plot really happen or was it made up by one of the characters I still don t knowSpeaking of characters I really liked the 19th century characters but really didn t care about the modern ones
