Présentation de l'éditeur

Dropout Neville Lister accompanies acclaimed photographer Saul Auerbach for a day, to learn a lesson for life. They play a game: from a hill above Johannesburg they pick three houses and decide to knock on their doors in search of a story. Auerbach's images of the first two will become classic portraits, but soon the light fades. Lister only reaches the third house decades later, returning to post-apartheid South Africa and a Johannesburg altered almost beyond recognition. How to live when estranged from your birthplace? What do you lose when you are no longer lost? Double Negative is a subtle triptych that captures the ordinary life of Neville Lister during South Africa's extraordinary revolution. Ivan Vladislavic lays moments side by side like photographs on a table. He lucidly portrays a city and its many lives through reflections on memory, art and what we should really be looking for.

Biographie de l'auteur

IVAN VLADISLAVIC is the author of the novels The Folly, The Restless Supermarket, The Exploded View and Double Negative. The last of these appeared initially in TJ/Double Negative, a joint project with the photographer David Goldblatt. Vladislavi has written extensively about Johannesburg, notably in Portrait with Keys (2006). He has edited volumes on architecture and art, and published a monograph on the conceptual artist Willem Boshoff. The compendium volume Flashback Hotel (2010) gathered together his early stories. Recent books are The Loss Library and Other Unfinished Stories, a reflection on writing and other things, and A Labour of Moles, a small comedy of meanings illustrated by Ornan Rotem. His work has won the Sunday Times Fiction Prize, the Alan Paton Award and the University of Johannesburg Prize, while TJ/Double Negative received the 2011 Kraszna-Krausz Award for best photography book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nothing negative about this book! Well written and honest 11 février 2013
Par Juliet Mdluli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I honestly did not think I would love this book but I really did. Neville is a young white man in starting off in apartheid era South Africa trying to find himself as a young person really- no real political inclinations that you could pick up. He clearly seems to have no real direction or plan with his life, and to prod him along his father introduces him to photographer Saul Auerbach who in turn invites Nev, to spend a day with him and Brookes, a British journalist, on this day Nev's life is changed as he sees his city, his country and ultimately himself through the wiley and crafty lens of Auerbach's photography. Fast forward a couple of years, and Nev leaves South Africa for London where he establishes himself as a photographer. Eventually returns to post apartheid Johannesburg, which is nothing like what he knew. I enjoyed travelling through post apartheid South Africa through Vladislavic's descriptions. I loved the honesty, it was not simpering sweet liberal descriptions that you normally get from South African writers. It was reality through Nev's lens and not necessarily pretty. The story is well narrated and written. Language to point and the descriptions of Johannesburg absolutelty on point. I am looking forward to reading more of this author's books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Double Negative 6 décembre 2013
Par Kate - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This is a fictionalized memoir, written by a true wordsmith. This is a journey the early part of which is set in Apartheid South Africa through the narrator's return post-Apartheid. This is an internal journey, not a historical one. Touching on the truths of our inner selves which are often subsumed by our public selves.
Do yourself the favor of saving the Introduction for last, as it is a love song to this book of metaphor...but gives us too many examples from the text: robbing us of the joy of meeting them in the narrative. Vladislavic's rememberings are swimming in metaphors, and he is superb in that simplified analogy.
Loved it, loved it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent piece of literature. 5 décembre 2013

This is a very witty biographic story, which manages to describe the same person throughout different stages in his life using different language and style. - Very nice.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Metaphor like an overloaded donkey traversing a rocky mountain path. 2 mars 2014
Par TonyMess - Publié sur Amazon.com
The introduction points out the heavy use of metaphor throughout and I must admit it was a way too liberal dose for my liking with just about every paragraph containing some kind of metaphor. Some were wonderful, others just distracting and although the whole structure, the characters and the references could be read as a metaphor for South Africa moving through transition it became a little to laboured like an overloaded donkey traversing a rocky mountain path.

For my full review go to [...]
