    One thought on “Invisible Yet Enduring Lilacs”

    1. For a long time I knew there was something fundamentally wrong with me. Not only did I have no interest in any form of sport, but I felt no connection to any landscape. To be honest, I hadn’t realised landscapes could even be important until quite late in my teens. On rare occasions my parents would take us to the top of a hill somewhere – somewhere where there would be a vista, which is just an Italian word meaning view, and we would stand and look out at that vista and I would try to make [...]

    2. Trevor McCandless sent me this book. He reviews lots of books on this site, and his reviews are quite something, so frankly, I'd trust his recommendation. It exceeded my expectations though, by a long chalk.It is a REALLY WEIRD book of essays. It is weird because the author is a strange person with, I'd suggest, a unique ability to convey that strangeness to others. I read one of his novels before, and I found it interesting, but not like I found this interesting. In fact, I should now go back t [...]

    3. The more Murnane I read, the more I want to force him on everyone I know. The more I want to force him on people, the more I'm forced to consider what they should read first. And the more I consider that, the more I realize that all of his books, and none of them, are ideal first reads. Invisible Yet Enduring Lilacs is a case in point. On the one hand, Murnane spends a lot of time in these pieces explaining what he takes himself to be doing in his (official) fiction. The most interesting essays [...]

    4. Pending a Review:MICROFICTION:[Assembled from the Archives of Gerald Murnane]The Three Archives of Gerald Murnanemusicandliterature/feaPeter Craven Thinks I Could Win the Nobel Prize; Helen Garner Doesn'tHelen Garner phoned me and said "The Plains" was male chauvinist word porn, but that like all porn it created an appetite for woman that it couldn't satiate. Paradoxically, she complained that the film-maker didn't even kiss the seventh land owner's wife. How gutless of me! I hate novelists who [...]

    5. My piece entitled "Reading Gerald Murnane's Landscapes with Proust" takes this volume of Murnane's essays as its starting point. Read it (and much, much more on and by Murnane from the likes of Teju Cole, Scott Esposito, Emmett Stinson, Tristan Foster, Matthew Jakubowski, and others) in Music & Literature Magazine's third issue: order here.

    6. These essays cover some of the same ground as Murnane's last three 'fictions' (which they preceded), and it's interesting seeing some of the ideas being expressed in non-fictional form. There's actually not that much difference for Murnane beyond these not having the overarching architecture of Barley Patch, A History of Books and A Million Windows. There is plenty of absorbing material and the sentences are as meticulously crafted as always. Magnificent.

    7. Invisible Yet Enduring Lilacs is a book comprising thirteen essays, all previously published in literary journals such as Age Monthly Review, Meanjin and Tirra Lirra between the years 1984 and 2003; they are arranged chronologically; two are edited transcripts of talks. They are all stand-alone pieces, nevertheless, viewed as a whole, they present a fascinating insight of what it means to Murnane to be a writer. There are other books by writers out there looking at their craft and if you’re a [...]

    8. This is the only one of Gerald Murnane's books I have finished, despite having others on my bookshelves for many years. I think because this is a series of essays they seemed more manageable to me. I also found it very readable because many of the essays are autobiographical, and when I was a child Gerald Murnane was 'Uncle Gerry' to me. He was a friend of my fathers, and I last saw him at my fathers funeral in 2004. In person Murnane does not seem quite as eccentric as I realise he is when I re [...]

    9. I am so under qualified to rate or review this book. Quite unlike anything else I've read. I wouldn't say I enjoyed it, but I would say it was definitely worth reading.
