Jack In Love See a Problem? VideoQuestion and Answer Time.
Jack hat jetzt Perspektiven. Und so findet er auch die Kraft, eine Bewerbung für eine neue Arbeitsstelle abzugeben. Lucy gegenüber plaudert er unbedacht einen Hinweis aus, dass Clyde ihm von ihrer Affäre mit dem Koch erzählt hat.
Daraufhin berichtet sie ihm im Gegenzug von einem Seitensprung Clydes. Nach einem gescheiterten Versuch, mit Jack intim zu werden, erklärt Connie, dass sie noch nicht für eine Penetration bereit sei.
Auf Connies Wunsch hin befriedigt Jack sie mit der Hand, während sie sich gegenseitig ihre jeweiligen Vorstellungen von Beziehung schildern. Nach sechsmaligem Probekochen in der Küche von Lucy und Clyde lädt Jack Connie endlich zum selbstgekochten Dinner in die Wohnung der Freunde ein, er selber hat weder repräsentable Räume noch eine geeignete Kochstelle.
Durch Jacks Gegenwart während der letzten Wochen und die langsam schwelende Ehekrise sind Clyde und Lucy bereits merklich gereizt. Zu viert lassen sie sich vom Genuss einer Wasserpfeife die Sinne vernebeln.
Erst als der Rauchmelder Alarm schlägt, bemerken sie, dass sowohl das Essen im Ofen als auch auf der Pfanne in Flammen stehen.
Lucy erkennt, was Clyde einzufädeln versucht hatte, und trennt sich lautstark von ihm, und so verlassen Connie und Jack letztlich die Wohnung.
Gemeinsam fahren sie in Connies Apartment, wo diese den Wunsch ausspricht, nie so zu werden wie Clyde und Lucy. Obwohl sie sich ihr erstes Mal mit Jack erst für den Tag der sommerlichen Bootsfahrt vorgenommen hatte, bittet sie Jack, mit ihr zu schlafen, und Jack willigt ein.
Lediglich in einer kurzen Sequenz im Schwimmbad findet Hoffman ein Bild für den Lebensschmerz seiner Figuren im verstörenden Anblick eines anderen Badegastes.

I read books anytime their blurb mentions nick hornby I mean yes it's set in the old days sixties but that's not that different from the current "backwoods" I know in my case it was an island deal.
My friend whose parents spent more on cigarettes a year than my mom made were white trash, my friend in high school whose mom was a lawyer was also considered white trash I know mean right his mom was super nice too , my boyfriend in high school whose dad owned a tow truck company We were just "outsiders" my uncle "trash" he had a washer in his front yard for a while that made you part of the community and trash although where I'm from it wasn't scorned like in this book.
I mean it was in other towns but being a "backsider" sort of equated if you were from a "frontside" town, especially southwest they were all poorly thought of, it almost makes you feel bad.
I don't know maybe being trash in a rich town was more of a big deal than in a town where everyone had lobster traps in their front yard.
I saw the drugs, the murder, the harassment, but I wasn't any of the main players. I think one of the interesting things about this book is the sides the family is on pop and stan are trash, mom and jack are clearly not but as long as they are a unit it's like when the salad dressing attacks the burger all of it is untouchable.
This isn't really about the murder it's about the town and it's about how small towns and families interact. I also got out of almost everything I had to do to graduate by not being the problem people expected me to be, but how I slept through physics is another story for another book.
The fact is what we see in this book it's real and it's awkward and this book captures it well, I'm just not sure if it's actually something that interests people and there appear to be some glaring spelling errors View all 3 comments.
Nov 08, Brian rated it it was amazing. I really liked this novel. The main theme of this story is that you can't choose your family. Jack is a Witcher, a family known for being trashy.
His dad is unemployed and likes to cause fights, his mom is "sweet but ugly" and his brother is a hippie who also has a volatile personality.
When a local teen is murdered, Stan, Jack's brother is the main suspect. The book is part murder mystery, part character study.
The characters are well fleshed out and memorable, from the jeweler Gladstein, to th I really liked this novel. The characters are well fleshed out and memorable, from the jeweler Gladstein, to the token black character Snead.
I enjoyed the style of writing and felt as though I would read other books by this author. The plot moves along briskly and doesn't make one lose interest quickly.
I especially liked the "love" story between Myra and title character. May 08, Trish rated it really liked it Shelves: totally-unexpected , fiction , funny , teen , quirky.
It raises questions that are not really resolved, and speaks to the nature of fiction itself. Jack presents us with two alternate histories: one in which his brother is transgresser, and one in which his brother is transgressed upon.
In the first history, his father is a rough and a cad, while in the second, he is vulnerable yet protective of his sons. We begin to suspect those others; we begin to suspect ourselves.
This is a book, I guess, about love. It is a story of a stiff-spined boy who grew into a stiff-spined man. He claims to have had a brother and father who taught him forgiveness could be weakness.
How much is truth and how much is fiction? That is where we will differ. I saw myself lying in all that stink with a knife in my chest.
Meanwhile the gnats and the mosquitoes and the bees and the flies and the wasps kept buzzing. Add to that the airplanes and the jet fighters leaving vapor trails and the helicopters and the lawn mowers on Lewis Street and the vacuum cleaners and the other appliances and the fans and the air conditioners and the traffic north on Cherokee and the traffic south on Matson and the trains on the tracks beside the river and the chemical and pharmaceutical plants next to the interstate pumping pollution into the air and the barking of neighborhood dogs and the frogs croaking along the banks of the creek and the snapping and buzzing from the satellites circling the earth and the cicadas in my mind that never stopped singing.
It has clever observances that make us laugh out loud, it raises social issues, and it plays with our sense of reality. It might make for good conversation around the campfire or dinner table.

It alters their lives so that they are just a little bit different after reading that book, and it is bound to become one of their life long favorites.
Today, this book was added to that list for me. Stephen Wetta's debut novel about a boy growing up in the tumultuous South during the sixties is not only touching, but an experience for anyone reading it who's ever been thirteen and confused about who they are.
Jack Witcher does Every so often a reader comes across a book that changes them forever. Jack Witcher doesn't know how to deal with the fact that his brother may be a murderer, that the whole neighborhood and thinks his family is trash, and that he has just fallen in love for the first time with a girl named Myra oh, and she just happens to be the sister of the boy his brother may have murdered.
The novel touches on many issues. First of all, Jack is forced to deal with loss of innocence. Like anyone at that age, he has begun to see the world as it truly is, and that the world is not all good.
He begins to understand that he will always be looked down upon in his neighborhood because his father isn't an educated man.
He doesn't have a steady job. His mother is a quiet woman. And his brother has been a bully since his days in kindergarten. The neighbors will never think well of him, but Jack wonders if this is fair.
He isn't like his father, his mother or his brother. He's smart and courteous, but he'll forever be known as one of the Witcher boys because of blood relation alone.
Not that being a Witcher is necessarily a bad thing. Wetta raises the question of whether or not the Witchers really are the trash that the neighborhood thinks them to be, or if they are just a product of the society they've been put in.
If they weren't so looked down upon, would Stan Witcher be such a bully? Would Jack Witcher have to fight to date Myra, a girl far above his social station?
Would Mr. Witcher be able to control his temper and keep a steady job if the world wasn't already setting him up to fail?
There are so many questions to be answered, and it leaves the reader wondering who should be looking down upon who.
Social status doesn't determine the goodness in people, and Wetta makes that very clear. And what about race? Does that determine the goodness in people?
Are all the white folks good and the blacks living in the next neighborhood over bad? The Witchers aren't a racist family, but is it a coincidence that when Mr.
Witcher is contemplating robbing a jewelry store that he enlists the help of a black man? Is it okay that Mr. Pudding, an accepted and well liked member of the community is a member of the KKK?
When you get past the realizations about social status, you realize the same truth applies to race.
People shy away from Mr. Gladstein because he's Jewish, but he's one of the more lovable characters in the book.
Snead is a nice enough guy, but because he is black he is of course looked down upon by everyone. Jack has to learn to see past race here too, realizing he can't change the minds of everyone but that he doesn't have to be a racist himself.
And what about first love? But is there really a way to be together when you are so young and so many obstacles stand in your way?
I could go on and on, but to sum up, this is an absolutely fantastic debut for the author and I look forward to the possibility of more work from him in the future.

Not Jeff Foxworthy, backwoods-hick rednecks, but legitimate, honest-to-God rednecks who wore tight Wrangler jeans to school, belonged to FFA and 4H, and skipped school on the first day of deer season.
However, we had a derogatory term for people who were considered too low-class to even be a redneck and it was the ultimate Growing up in southeastern Ohio, I was surrounded by rednecks.
If Jack Witcher had gone to my elementary school, he probably would have been called a rutter. In small-town Virginia in the late 60s, the Witchers are simply considered white trash.
Mom is ugly and works as a cashier at the grocery store. Twelve-year old Jack, though, is different. Gladstein helps Jack out by giving him a ring to woo Myra Joyner and encouraging the boy to believe in himself.
This book is so well-written, and comparisons to To Kill A Mockingbird are much-deserved. Like Scout, Jack struggles with the loss of his innocence in the face of violence and injustice in his small-town environment.
He is a boy so punished by his circumstances, who desperately wants to understand things that are bigger than him. My only complaint about this book is the pacing.
There's a slow build-up, then it's rushed as soon as we hit the climax - sort of as if Wetta just wanted to be done and couldn't figure out how to finish it.
The result is less than fully satisfying, but only slightly so. There are so many levels to this book, so many ideas that are explored — class, race, faith, morals, justice, young love, obligation to family vs.
The more I think about it, the more I fall in love with it. This is a book that I wholeheartedly recommend to everyone.

Goes to show you, it does not matter who you are, where you come from, what age you are or rather or not others think you can write or not Who cares what others think, just do it!
What matters the most is what ones writing means to them. Stephen Wetta grew up in an environment with various types of people wi Truly, what impressed me the most-is the writer was 55 when he wrote, "If Jack's In Love", and it was his first novel!
Stephen Wetta grew up in an environment with various types of people with unusual personalities that became a milestone to his achievement of a good novel.
Once he realized all he had to do was to gather those experiences and put those memories on paper and the magic was on. He realized with some encouragement and resources he finally, managed to get it out there.
I must say that I do not understand why, Stephen Wetta, the author did not receive a standing debut from the press like other novelists this year. Who died, gave them a crown and made them King?
It was fascinating though, how I had to search every local bookstore in one of the most top 10 cities in the US to find a copy!
Go figure! Thank goodness, otherwise I would not have had a piece of his wonderful work added to my collection of books.
Like, after reading this fictional story, I found pieces of scenarios that Jack experienced similar to when I was a young teen.
So typical, were some of the characters in the writer's book. Kinda made you angry how stupid people really can be when confronted with the truth.
Especially when they are bias and do not acknowledge it. Just throwing prejudice attitudes out there like there was no tomorrow. On top of all of that, having the audacity to throw it at you as though you were yesterdays trash and going on about their business like it never happened.
Go figure again, lol! Although this novel was written during a very controversial time in American history. I appreciate the writer's bravery to use candid outburst in the story yet at the same time, knowing when to inject subtle approaches so as not to offend the reader.
He makes the reader lol because it is funny and sometimes dark with a little thrill of suspense to keep you from putting the book down.
I love the wonderfully short chapters and his deep passion. Good to know that people can still find courage just from reading a book.
Definitely, a family story and GoodReads View 1 comment. Feb 08, Debdanz rated it did not like it Shelves: coming-of-age , southern. Don't know whether I'm going to be able to force myself to finish this one.
