This was a wonderful little book that uses thoughtful language and references to art history to show us the life of the painter Kevin Pace. It discusses the secrets we keep with us and how they change us and influence our decisions.

Thanks again @BarbaraBB This was a great choice! 🤗

BarbaraBB I am happy you liked it, it was one of my favorites last year 💙 13mo
Reggie I loved this book, and when he goes back to South America and meets that same man...😭. 13mo

So Much Blue is, at its core, a book about the secrets we keep from the people we love, and how the choices we make shape us into who we are. It‘s about a man on the edge of crisis in different phases of his life, and the ways in which he tries to justify and elude his past.

It‘s richly intellectual and surprisingly very funny in spite of the heavy subject matter. An engaging exploration of one man‘s life. I really loved that last chapter.

With 15 books I had an unusual good month! Many books I read were for this month‘s #TournamentOfBooks and they were mostly very good. Above are my favorites, with the tagged being my number one!

Today these two are up in the #ToB. I am sorry to see one of them go because I loved them both.

Choices choices... I vote for the tagged one because it was such a surprising read where Pachinko was more of a regular family saga - although very good. I can live with either choice though.

What are your thoughts?

batsy Haven't read Pachinko and really rooting for So Much Blue. It's such an underdog book 💙 2y
jhod @batsy I love an underdog! 2y
mklong I liked both, so I won‘t be sad either way. I agree with you though that So Much Blue has the edge, just because it was so different from what I expected 2y

merelybookish I'm all in for So Much Blue. I don't feel passionate about either one, but Everett's prose showed such skilled. I would like to see that rewarded. 2y
Readerann I‘m reading Pachinko now and really enjoying it. So far, I‘m impressed with the choices this year. 2y
BarbaraBB Well, the jury report was much more about the judge self than about the book. I feel irritated by it, maybe partly because of where it led to! 2y

Kevin is an artist who is hiding the painting he works on from the people he loves. But he has been hiding things from them before. We learn about some of his secrets in 3 storylines: one set in El Salvador, one in Paris and one in the present.
I loved Kevin, the dialogues and the relationships, all of them so real. My favourite was the Salvadorian storyline, but they were all so good. The end made me fighting back tears. #Booked2018 #POC #ToB

How have I never read Percival Everett before?! I'd never even heard of him until he popped up on the #TOB2018 short list. In this book, Kevin Pace, a successful, aging artist, looks back on two pivotal moments from his past in an effort to illuminate his restless, and unfulfilled, present. I know that sounds like something you have read a hundred times, but it doesn't read that way. It feels fresh and insightful in Everett's capable hands.

batsy Yes! Love your review. I also asked myself why I've never read him before! 2y
susanw This was exactly my thought when I read this. How have I not heard of him? The ToB does this for me every year, I get to discover a new fantastic author because of them. 2y

Trying to read the Tournament of Books #tob shortlist before March, but my plans hit a snag - I reserved some as library books, but the libraries in my state changed interlibrary loan delivery service contracts and the new contractor's subcontractor quit, leaving basically no drivers. There's a backlog of ~90,000 books waiting to be sent to libraries 😵 (mine were en route for 2 months). My library just got 10 boxes, but there's still a backlog.

Jas16 That‘s crazy 2y
bookandcat @Jas16 um YEAH. it's bananas. The librarians started driving some of the books themselves. There are tens of thousands of books just MIA floating around at random branches (because you can return a book to any branch within your library system here). One popular library nearby is waiting on 4,000 books 😱 2y
Zelma Ugh, what a nightmare. As a previous inter-library loan librarian, this gives me hives just thinking about it. 2y

Something about this cover said jazz, cocktails, and mysterious woman in dimly lit club. I knew there was an extra-marital affair between a water-colourist and an older married man so I was getting ready for some good doomed love affair reading. However, most characters seemed terribly thin and their motivations hard to parse.

Probably the weakest of the books I have read for this years Tournament of Books but at least it was short !

Smarmy and crassly masculine, Kevin's recollections still manage to swing often into the light of thoughtful self awareness. The story is woven with several threads: his misadventure with Richard in El Salvador, day-to-day family life, his affair bred in Paris, and snippets of historical art references. So many lines turned me off, but the end of every chapter brought me back to focus on the painful plot twists. 10/10 would recommend.

I looked at my life and it was clear that I should be happy, but I was not. And it was not because I'd isolated myself in my work. I'd used my work as a refuge, a sanctum, a hiding place. However this harborage turned out to have one way in & one out and I had lost sight of it. It could have been argued that ten years earlier I had succumbed to a banal midlife crisis, but now I was falling victim to something far worse, a late-life revelation.

A painting has many surfaces. To say that a painting is like a story is a pedestrian utterance, not untrue, but uninspired, though that hardly stops people from making such unwarranted comparisons. The painting that was my life was static, hardly a story at all, moving but with no moving parts, changing but without alteration. The shapes in the painting were unique elements in unique situations, but I never pressed that thinking beyond my canvas.

I was so-so on this book until it really started to come together in the last quarter. Three separate storylines alternate to reveal various secrets that the narrator holds from his wife. The narrator is a painter who doesn‘t like to use blue, but notes that it‘s often in the under painting and influences the appearance of the final painting. This is a metaphor for how the secrets he‘s been keeping buried influence his everyday life.

This book, I almost thought of not reading the rest of it until tomorrow, just so I would have more time with it. Kevin Pace is a painter in his 50‘s looking back at 3 different time periods in his life. The present, ten years previous in Paris, and 1979. How the last two affect his present. I enjoyed Kevin‘s perceptions and witty banter that could either suddenly make me laugh out loud or make me breath deeper, slower, and quieter. Great book.

batsy Love your review 👍 2y
Reggie @batsy thank you, I‘ve never read him before, but will definitely be checking out some of his other stuff. His parts in the story about loving/not loving his wife.... kinda got to me. How messed up emotionally people can be. 2y
batsy @Reggie That really got to me, too. How people keep going in a marriage. The affair part felt so real, so human. 😭 The art/philosophy stuff was deep, but doesn't alienate the reader. I must read more of him. 2y

Reggie @batsy He takes self-awareness to a whole new level. And the cyclical comments that stretch your mind into this sore Möbius band. “you could use paint to make a landscape, but no landscape could ever be a painting.” Or when he‘s getting interviewed about the stencils he chose. Quite the character. (edited) 2y

My first time reading Everett & can't wait to read more. The premise of this book seems to be different from his others: a novel about a bourgeois artist in his mid-50s. But Everett's careful, analytical prose seems to invert all the clichés. Three timelines are braided together in one story involving a trip to El Salvador, a past affair in Paris, and current family situation. A thoughtful, muted meditation on secrets, art, & living with others.

batsy I found his descriptions of marriage, about how secrets are one way of retaining autonomy but also corrosive to a partnership, quietly heartbreaking. And for a man writing about an affair with a younger woman, he was able to draw on what qualities in her ignited a spark of life in him after sleepwalking through life, instead of listing alluring body parts. It's a voice that's very self-aware. 3y

Conversation between the narrator of the book, Kevin, & his best friend Richard. They're talking about Kevin's affair in Paris some years ago. Kevin's voice is the whole book & it's a reserved, intensely philosophical one. It took me awhile to warm up to him & now I'm in love with Everett & how he writes. (And isn't this the case? You might do things differently now that you know what you know, even if you don't know exactly what it is you know.)

So Much Blue arrived this afternoon. It's his new release. Can't wait to pick it up. It will be my first Perceval Everett but am confident I'm going to like it. #readsoullit #new release #blackmenread

#readsoullit Day #8: Anticipated New Releases I've read Ward before and really want to check out more of her work. Haven't read Percival Everett yet but I like the sound of this book that examines the price of being an artist. #catchup #blackhistorymonth #newreleases
