    One thought on “De pornograaf”

    1. This was my second McGahern book. Having read "That They May Face the Rising Sun," I had to read more of McGahern's work. The first one to arrive in the mail was, "The Pornographer." Not considered among his best, it was, nonetheless, engaging from beginning to end. Darker and more troubling than TTMFTRS, "The Pornographer " explores the layers and shades of our emotions and our relationships. His eye is keen and his pen works with the precision of a surgical knife, as he lays open our fears, ou [...]

    2. The principal issue for me in reading this book is how the protagonist could somehow remain sympathetic while basically abandoning a pregnant woman, aimlessly writing pornography, and occasionally visiting his dying aunt in the hospital. And yet, I liked the main character and the narrative to, at least, finish reading the book.

    3. Goeie schets van een tijdsgeest, het Dublin van de jaren '70, het dagdagelijkse leven maar ook het nachtleven, de toenmalige interseksuele relaties. De dualiteit tussen de twee grote gebeurtenissen die het leven van het hoofdpersonage domineren - de ziekte van zijn tante en de zwangerschap van een iets oudere vrouw na een one night stand - zorgt voor een goeie dynamiek in het verhaal en inzicht in het karakter van The Pornographer. Opvallend is ook de verantwoordelijkheid en de zorg die hij toon [...]

    4. This Is One Of The Weirdest Adult Fiction That I Read In This Month That An Man Named Cyril Was Working on A Hardware Facility and He Saw An Woman Who Was Just As Sure That He Currently Unabrupted With Her To That Point.

    5. Of all McGahern's novels, I have heard the least about The Pornographer. I don't have an explanation why this is, only the suspicion that it may have something to do with some readers' and critics' discomfort at a vulgarity that McGahern makes no attempt to either justify or finally reject. The element of sexual fantasy in the novel is not one of ecstatic physical love that some books use to draw readers, but a kind of mocking turned against the protagonist, who is unable to deal with his own re [...]

    6. I read this one ten years ago. When he died in 2006 I wrote a little about it for the website of the bookstore that employed me at the time:I was very sad today (March 30, 2006) to learn of the passing of the Irish writer John McGahern. I would like to take this small corner of cyberspace to remember this man who was not well known in North America, despite often being cited as the greatest living Irish author. Of all McGahern's great works, I would personally recommend his 1979 novel The Pornog [...]

    7. [rating= B-]John McGahern has a very good eye for characters. Whether they be sickly aunts or porn-writing nephews, he creates them and thoroughly goes into them. This novel is about lust and love; love for an aunt, lust for a middle-aged woman. And although the plot may seem banal, McGahern uses these clichés to make his point all the more poignant: people will be people. The very fact that the pornographer cannot love but only lust, is a bit trite, yet this is precisely used to point out that [...]

    8. All of McGahern's books are just a little bit strange, and The Pornographer is no exception. It certainly has an interesting conceit: about a young man in Dublin in the late-'70s who makes a modest living writing pornography in those innocent, pre-internet days. He is what my mother might call a "libertine", ready to bed anyone who will have him, but he's no great romancer: he tells his partners that he's only interested in the sex, wants no commitments or responsibilities. This philosophy is te [...]

    9. Another great book by McGahern. The book has some really touching themes – how the end of a life can be fulfilling and courageous, while the start of another life can be heart wrenching and undignified. There’s also beautiful, extraordinary prose throughout the book. This might be my favorite: “…by thinking any one thing was as worth doing as any other, by sleeping with anybody who’d agree, I had been the cause of as much pain and confusion as if I had actively set out to do it. I had [...]

    10. I really enjoyed this book. It was beautifully written, with no chapters. The story revolved around a writer of soft porn and his relationship with his dying aunt and somewhat confused feelings about a woman he meets.

    11. The Pornographer is beautifully written and McGahern’s ability as an engaging storyteller and brilliant writer is undoubted. He has the ability to make the most ordinary things intriguing. A page turner with a lot of merit.

    12. This is not one of Mc Gaherns well known books. It is wrtiien in his inimitable style , full of strange observations and wonderful descriptions .

    13. I usually read to escape my own reality, however this book made me plunder deeper into some darker corners of my life. p.s. do not judge by the title
