I didn t expect to like this as much as I did I would have steered clear of it if I hadn t pledged to read all of this year s International Booker longlist At best I thought I would have a grudging respect for the book in all its grimness Valerie Solanas had an exceptionally tough life as her attorney explains in the novel FLORYNCE KENNEDY On June 10 1968 I was appointed public defense counsel in the case New York State versus Valerie Solanas I described Valerie as one of the most important campaigners for the modern women s movement Dr Ruth Cooper at Elmhurst Psychiatric Hospital in New York described Valerie as brilliantly intelligent and and Andy Warhol didn t actually die he was only injured he survived and he kept on being wealthy and making bad art even though he didn t make a full recovery There was her unhappy childhood raped by her daddy when she was seven raped six times before she turned eighteen her mother abused and raped by an undisclosed number of men in the desert homeless at the age of fifteen working as a prostitute drug addiction mental disorders repeated rapes in connection with prostitutionKennedy was a remarkable figure in her own right a black radical feminist and pioneer of intersectionality who graduated from law school in the early 1950sNever having read Solanas SCUM Manifesto my main impression of Valerie was via Mary Harron s 1996 film I Shot Andy Warhol which I saw back when it was on cinema release Lili Taylor s portrayal of Solanas captures anger and vulnerability but this book contains far of both sualor and poetry Faculty of Dreams starts at the end as Solanas dies in visceral detail slowly and messily in a San Francisco hotel for the homeless in 1988 Scenes then shift back and forth between several key periods in her life childhood in the fictional desert town of Ventor Georgia holidays and adolescence in Florida university in Maryland writing and hanging out at the Factory in New York talking with a female psychiatrist while remanded in a secure hospital and death rattles in the Bristol Hotel SF Much of the story is related in a semi delirious prose poetry which I found hypnotic and fluid but it would be understandable if some readers find it repetitive as the same lines and concepts recur again and again through the book It often uses the second person but I never found this invasive as I have in some novels eg Italo Calvino s If on a winter s night a traveller Though of course in Faculty of Dreams the combination of second person with the already harrowing subject matter could be triggery for some readers at the wrong time To me it always felt like the voice of the omniscient narrator was talking to Valerie as you She also speaks with her directly in several of the book s scenes that are set out as playscript Some of these conversations comment on the writing process and the book VALERIE Giving up isn t the answer fucking up is NARRATOR I only wish I knew how to fuck all this up VALERIE Artificial historiography The story of the whore and mental illness Of the American underwater population NARRATOR And the uestion of identity VALERIE Non identity is the answerThere are no given identities there are no women there are no men no boys no girls There s only a little puppet show An endless shitty play with a shitty script NARRATOR So it mustn t end like this VALERIE You ll have to write something new baby writer you ll have to find new endingsOn the uestion of fucking with identity this is a fictionalised Solanas Her parents are still called Dorothy and Louis as they were in real life she still studies psychology at the University of Maryland she still shoots Andy Warhol and is incarcerated in psychiatric hospitals and she really did die in the Bristol Hotel in 1988 But between these landmarks Stridsberg creates what she describes in introduction as a literary fantasy derived from the life and work of Valerie Solanas Few facts are known about Valerie Solanas and even to those this novel is not faithful This also applies to the map of America there being no deserts in Georgia Real Valerie was from New Jersey not Georgia I needed to understand what was and wasn t fictional here I didn t want to one day read a factual discussion about Solanas and unwittingly relate it to invented material from a novel And a few weeks ago I embarrassed myself by posting a review of a Mathias nard historical novel without carefully checking how much of the book was made up So thanks to Wikipedia and Breanne Fahs biography of Valerie I saw that she often lived with her grandparents during her teen years and ended up having two babies before she turned 16 not in a trailer park with a friend who was a rent boy greedy for drugs and pretending to be brother and sister as she does in the novel His main sugar daddy has a surname only one letter different from Dorothy s maiden name Some of the uoted interviews are real some are not As the name of an important university classmate Ann Duncan appeared I searched Was she going to be based on a minor 1950s actress or possibly murderer Elizabeth Ann Duncan or was she nothing to do with either It was fun watching the character s identity emerge from the haze forming into a fictional daughter of Elizabeth Ann In the two fictional companions brother in arms Silk Boy and her university girlfriend and fellow proto radical feminist Cosmogirl Ann Duncan their nicknames perhaps obliue references to characters in Solanas play Up Your Ass which she alleged Warhol stole Stridberg has granted Valerie close comradeship which she seems to have lacked in real life This is a kindness Although if considering the aetiology of her later life and this is after all a novel about someone who was once a star student in her psychology class who liked to analyse people herself it fucks with the story in another way too If real Valerie had had these important attachments for a few years each as her fictional incarnation had perhaps she wouldn t have shot Andy Warhol To what extent were Valerie s opinions the result of the life she grew up in An impossible uestion to resolve fully But one that means a reader not aligned with radical feminism could see this novel as showing how life experience combines with temperament to create opinions Whereas a radical feminist may take Solanas life story as a series of events that shows an urgent need for their philosophy Fahs biography states As Jane Caputi a radical feminist who met Valerie in the mid 1970s and currently chairs the women and gender studies program at Florida Atlantic University claimed It s not as simple as the abuse leads to the manifesto that you re filled with rage and that leads to things directly But those experiences do take away the illusions Those abuses don t prescribe seeing through things but they do affect things That is one response to abuse where you continue contact or are filled with rage At the same time you take it out on yourselfAt any rate Valerie s rants and black humoured uips sound like lines uttered by young feminists on social media now half ironic half serious Stridsberg s novel was first published 12 years ago in Sweden but this is a timely translation to English over the last few years intersectional feminism has become a stronger part of popular culture and once radical ideas mainstream Sara Strisdsberg s was one of those who resigned in protest from the blighted Swedish Nobel Literature Academy in 2018 part of the international metoo movement As was pointed out recently in a discussion thread metoo as well as a movement to stop sexual harassment and assualt is a reaction to established male creatives controlling and suashing upcoming female artists works as Solanas felt Warhol was doing to her Aspects of 1970s style radical feminism in relation to gender and prostitution are among the most contentious political battlegrounds of the present day and Solanas life as a radical feminist and sex worker is especially complex in the light of this She talks of pussy souls but says My pussy is not my soul a partial contradiction of the biological essentialism associated with conservative radical feminism now This novel finds itself in a longlist on which eight out of thirteen books are by female authors the literary women in translation movement aiming to redress a major gender imbalance in which novels get translated may be starting to pay off There was a time a few years ago when I regularly typed I am not a radical feminist in online debates as a shorthand for where I stood Looking at the history of 1960s 70s radical feminism while reading this book in 2019 I was struck by how many of its general principles via their adoption by contemporary intersectional feminism I had recently made my peace with and accepted as applicable to wider society Whilst they still seem to say little about my own experiences or those of my emphatically matriarchal family I had been induced to see how they are relevant structurally This is a remarkable translation by Deborah Bragan Turner it felt as if the English was the original work though the book s American subject contributes to this impression US experimental novels get up to all sorts so why not transpose a coastal town in New Jersey to an imaginary desert in Georgia Otherwise just about the only hint that this novel was originally from any place other than the country where it was set was the use of British postgraduate where Americans say grad student Allusions to lyrics by Nirvana I hate myself but I do not want to die early Manic Street Preachers Of Walking Abortion and Hole Doll Parts lurked within reflecting Solanas state of mind and her cultural influence but also cementing a sense of the book s belonging in in English Faculty of Dreams reminded me of works in English works which may not be the most apposite references when reviewing a Swedish book Firstly Canadian Elizabeth Smart s intense novel in prose poetry By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept 1945 which sweeps the reader along with its protagonist s emotional tumult during a straight love affair I found both books similarly hypnagogic and dense it felt like I had read and experienced a lot through the characters yet I was reading far slowly than I thought it was repetitive yet I never wanted to uestion its repetitiveness As if time was gathering in still puddles and I didn t mind Except when I noticed how many days I d been reading Faculty of Dreams six eventually when I d aimed to finish the book in two There is presumably also a Scandinavian tradition of prose poetry I ve read recent examples by Dane Josefine Klougart but don t know about her predecessors The Faculty of Dreams shares with 1980s Northern English feminist play My Mother Said I Never Should by Charlotte Keatley a habit of bold declarative sometimes non seuitur sentences about common female experiences as well as scenes in playscript format shifts back and forth in time and a minimalist order and tight structure imposed by the author on a potentially chaotic story And I kept hearing the wonky unglamorous downright silly sound of Bowie s Andy Warhol it s closer to the DIY feel of this book and of Solanas calmer ramblings than it is to Warhol s smooth plastic pop art and iconographic image Warhol also hated the songPerhaps my favourite set of chapters in the book and also something of a break from Valerie s suffering were the lists several themed sections in which free associated aspects of a subject were set out in 26 paragraphs numbered with letters of the alphabet such as these from The Presidents a partial history of feminism I There were only superwomen It was the second wave They were all courageous they all loved sucking cock Passion Obviously I knew they were laughing at meBilled as Daddy s Favourite Girl Gloria Steinem appears elsewhere in the text the conventionally attractive liberal feminist tries unsuccessfully of course to persuade Valerie towards mainstream feminism Valerie derides liberal feminists who include men feminist controversies go in cycles and I was reminded me of the anger towards Emma Watson s HeForShe project J Suffragettes One by one they joined the underworld Lung cancer heart attacks shark attacks The inuests never ended Formalities were set aside It was overrun with weeds around the houseM Fuck you Miss Pankhurst The white blouse That was 1913 I had seen her on Fifth Avenue The next summer she died from her injuries at the racecourse Just as the second wavers are the older generation nowadays and many music stars of the 60s are dying off so we see the Suffragettes stand at the same distance from the feminists of Valerie s age Imagery of Emily Wilding Davidson recurs the Suffragette who famously threw herself in front of the king s racehorse an implicit analogy to Valerie in sacrificing herself to her cause but with a clear coherent decision that is now widely respected Back in the mid 90s before the I Shot Andy Warhol film was released the impression of Valerie Solanas I d got from pop culture was that she was kind of embarrassing There was punk and there was punk This could be seen as the view of a male dominated entertainment press but I for one didn t have a problem with them And it s not just that there are radical feminists who disavow her too Mary Harron s film humanised her but I d rarely thought about her since except when I watched Warhol s Chelsea Girls and read a little about the Chelsea Hotel and the Factory I m not sure I d ever known how brilliant she had been when she was young enough to be awarded scholarships despite the sort of teenage years that would derail most people But the legacy of her early life and perhaps the lack of the right support whether socially or therapies and understandings of trauma that barely existed yet meant she did derail eventually and with spectacular destructive effects on herself and the New York art world I never thought I would be so moved by Valerie Solanas and that her life was such a string of might have beens and nearlys if only things had been a little less bad in her circumstances or epigenetics or something and she d been an outrageous radical feminist psychology professor or a writer and activist shouting things up even today online Stridberg is a bit late in the story with the if onlys Perhaps by the time Solanas was on her way with the gun to find Warhol she was too far gone mentally to have the potential to become than a bit less of a mess than she ended up by shooting him But it was wonderful that the book articulated this This is the beginning of the end Valerie The moment you shoot Andy Warhol you throw away all possibility of being someone other people listen to the only thing you dream about writer artist revolutionary psychoanalyst rebel There are so many options there is a world that can be yours out there if only you drop the weapon and leave Remember Valerie this is New York it is 1968 and you have your university degree your wild heart your rich talent of raw poetry and a fantastic sense of humor You can do whatever you want In a few years time the women s movement will move into the universities and everywhere women s caf s will appear reading circles feminist groups and in San Francisco half a million women will demonstrate dressed in white in protest against sexual politics based on fear and systematic rape A radical women s movement will grow up and radical sexual politics There will be a place for you there Valerie The new age will be your ageIf this sounds like a 5 star review it is in a way But I have to love a book to give 5 stars these days and this had a bit too much horror It is all brilliantly done for what it is if you like this sort of writing which not everyone does In the context of the 2019 MBI longlist it s interesting to look at Faculty of Dreams alongside The Years and Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead In these three of the five most substantial books on the list there s an apparent resurgence of literature about people women who were young in the 1960s the late Silent Generation or early Boomers From 2013 onwards when Eleanor Catton won the English language Booker prize lists had and young authors and the stories of those who were young adults in the 1960s and 70s people now in their 70s stories which readers had been hearing for decades often took a back seat This crop of three excellent books all published in their original languages in the second half of the 00s has appeared coincidentally together a decade later in English a sort of time capsule or throwback but a very worthy one In their activism anger and imagined utopias the protagonists seem similar to those who are young now More so than to us cynical late Gen Xers who were that age during the West s uiescent Third Way years of the 90s and 00s There are closer parallels again between Plow and The Faculty of Dreams each presents a character who d be commonly regarded as a dangerous crank in a sympathetic yet unvarnished portrait Each book shows that her causes and views have a good point even if she takes things too far Tokarczuk s novel shows the tension and contradiction in this project and struggles to make it cohere although it manages to have both readability and intellectual depth But regardless of Stridberg s poetic style the Swedish book pulls it off and in doing so makes something difficult look easy when set alongside Plow Faculty of Dreams may not be the most comfortable reading but I could see why it won the Nordic Council Literature Prize which includes work from all Nordic countries and how credible it seems from the small ish sample of Swedish literature I ve read that it was voted as the best Swedish novel from the 2000s decade in a poll held by the newspaper Dagens Nyheter which involved one hundred Swedish critics authors journalists and publishers Wiki I reuested and received a free advance review copy from the publishers Maclehose Press an imprint of Hachette UK Thank you
