Euphoria
Euphoria | Lily King
Its that moment about two months in, when you think youve finally got a handle on the place. Everything clicks and it all feels within your graspat that moment the place feels entirely yours. Its the briefest, purest euphoria.From the critically-acclaimed author of Father of the Rain comes a breathtaking novel about three gifted and groundbreaking anthropologists of the 30s bound together by an all-consuming passion. For years, English anthropologist Andrew Bankson has been alone in the field studying the Kiona tribe of Papua New Guinea. Haunted by the memory of his brothers public suicide, and increasingly infuriated with and isolated by his research, Bankson is on the verge of killing himself when a chance meeting with colleagues, the controversial and consummate Nell Stone and her wry Australian husband Fen, pulls him back from the brink. Nell and Fen have just finished their studies of the bloodthirsty Mumbanyo and, in spite of Nells ill health, the couple is ravenous for another new discovery. Together with Bankson they set out to uncover the Tam, a local tribe with an almost mythic existence. As the trio settle with the tribe in their paradisiacal surroundings, inspiration flows and mutual affections swell. In the midst of this new, unchartered territory, Nell, Bankson, and Fen must learn not only to adapt to their invigorating present, but to also confront their complicated and haunted pasts.Set between two World Wars, and based on the adventures of revolutionary anthropologist Margaret Mead, Euphoria is a luminous and remarkable story of the power of possibility, imagination, and memory, from accomplished author Lily King.

Seriously wondering if the author paid for all the gushing blurbs on this book because wtf did I even read. Only slightly good thing was the imagery. I saw no critique of white Western anthropological practices, & instead a lot of othering, infantilizing, & navel-gazing of the most tedious kind. Main characters are flat & dreary, not to mention huge jerks, love triangle is absurd, and just....no. Didn‘t like, don‘t get the hype. Trash. Bye. 1/5 ⭐️

batsy Nice pan 😆 And I'm unstacking it because that's exactly what I hate in a book. 2mo

I‘ve been told that this book is meant to be taken somewhat as a critique of the concept of “white people studying people of color” and I hope that‘s true, but even so........not going into it with super high hopes. The cover is pretty, though! I do love me a birb. #nowreading

This is a story (based on a true one, apparently) of 3 anthropologists, Nell Stone, her husband Fen, and joined by Andrew Bankson, working in the field in Australia in 1933. I didn‘t feel like the plot had a lot of meaty drive to, and even the love story fell a bit flat for me. But Nell‘s character is so intriguing and her perspective of love is beautiful. It‘s a quick read/listen, and I‘m glad I picked it up.

I went into this book knowing nothing about it and was pleasantly surprised. Inspired by the true story of Margaret Mead and her work in New Guinea with her 2nd husband and the man who became her 3rd husband, I found the anthropological details and discussions as interesting as the love triangle. The relationships and characters (even the truly awful Australian husband - based on a Kiwi I might add) all felt authentic.

Based loosely on real people and events, set in the 1930's, 3 anthropologists are thrown together as they travel the river through New Guinea studying the tribes. I found their different approaches to this field of study so fascinating. Yet it is the intellectual and emotional love triangle that develops between these flawed characters, that was so captivating. Gorgeous prose, well-drawn characters and a compelling story.

Happy Sat morning in Australia. How cool are my new pjs? A cold wind is blowing straight off the ocean and onto my apartment this morning so I am in bed with organic earl grey tea with milk, under 3 doonas getting a head start on my next #LMPBC. Might have a spa and sauna before yoga then a catch up with friends before a walk and some cooking, eating and drinking and perhaps movie watching. #lifeistoughformargaretmeadnotme #bfc2hasntevenstartedyet

Although this tragedy is well written, I didn‘t like it. I did not like the self-centered characters. Still, I had to read it to the end. I don‘t know if I was seeking a better story or if I was hoping it would not come to the end I foresaw. A love triangle among anthropologists. You will like the natives better.

So happy to be back out on my porch on a gorgeous, sunny day reading this vibrant book — a story inspired by events in the life of Margaret Mead. The writing is just as beautiful as the cover! (Note: I found the receipt in the book from when I originally bought it — it‘s only been sitting on my shelves for 4 years...🤪)

Of course I had to pay a visit to an indie bookstore while visiting DC. Due to time constraints, I only got to visit one - Kramerbooks & afterwords cafe (bookstore & cafe in one) was the closest, and I was immediately smitten! Such a lovely bookstore and great staff too! Pictured are my purchases: a tote, a book and a notebook.

“Why with our emphasis on the individual are we still so blinded by the urge to conform...I think above all else it is freedom I search for in my work, in these far-flung places, to find a group of people who give each other the room to be in whatever way they need to be. And maybe I will never find it all in one culture but maybe I find parts of it in several cultures, maybe I can piece it together like a mosaic and unveil it to the world.”

My reading strategy for travel is to bring used “light reads” that I‘ve bought at library sales or yard sales through out the year but haven‘t gotten around to reading. When I‘m done, I pass them on or leave them in the hotel or plane. No guilt, less to carry. And hopefully someone finds a nice surprise 😉

Absolutely loved this book! Primarily it's about three anthropologists caught in a love triangle- but more deeply it's about their disagreements about how to study and interpret culture, and whose stories we tell, and listen to.
It's based on Margaret Mead, and now I can't wait to read more about her!

This was Book 17 of my #52Booksin2018

All prepped for a trip to the store before the next winter storm.

this book, inspired by Margaret Mead, is less about anthropology than I was expecting, but I'm really enjoying it. I like when audiobooks use different narrators for different characters, it's so much easier for me to follow along.
