This is the first time I came across a book from this author a friend of mine lent it to me a while ago and I finally got around to reading it While it is a very short easy book to read I didn t care much for the plot or for that matter any of the characters Charlie Weir is a psychiatrist that specializes in trauma From accidentally killing someone to post traumatic stress due to war experiences or sexual abuse as children the array of patients is entirely made out of people traumatized by something And while Charlie has had uite a traumatic life of his own like his extremely dysfunctional upbringing with an alcoholic and depressive mother with a blatant preference for his brother Walter he seems to have reasonably overcome this chapter of his life At this point everything indicates that the only thing disturbing Charlie s psyche is the death of his brother in law and conseuent outcome in his marriage to Agnes We find ourselves being told this story by someone we think is reliable as a narrator The storytelling ability of the author is uite remarkable The story flows really well even in the least eventful parts of the plot and the writing is fluid and achieved The character development however except for Charlie who we get to know uite well leaves a bit to be desired We don t know much about anyone else and especially in the case of Agnes I think it would ve been nice to have some character development By the end we realize Charlie has some trauma of his own deeply ingrained in his brain Being a psychologist and so self absorbed he failed to notice the symptoms in himself That definitely didn t seem right to me especially him being a specialist in trauma He tries to diagnose everyone around him from his brother in law to Nora and blatantly fails to do so with himself Other than that the ending felt incredibly rushed It came and went and you don t even have enough time to absorb what has happened In my opinion it could have been really really good but fell short of its potential

The story of a psychiatrist with plenty of psychiatric problems of his own here McGrath once again delves into uestions of pathology and all the dark little crunchy bits at the back of a person s head Told from the perspective of the main character it is a record of the events following the death of his mother which leads to him reconnecting with his ex wife now re married dating a woman who ought to be a patient and dealing with his free spirited artist brother His specialty is trauma recovery though it becomes apparent that he is the one who needs to face his past The tale is spun brilliantly reminding me a bit of Benjamin Black s Christine Falls a sort of mystery without action The psychiatrist simply through relationships and the changes in those dynamics uncovers the truth about the events of his childhood and realizes how they defined his entire life McGrath does a great job of getting all of the twisted ugly potential that love and relationships offer into his prose likely made easier by the fact that his main character has been trained to recognize these pathologies and patterns The only problem I really had with this book was that the pacing was a bit odd It skips back and forth between the present and past and the developmentrevelation comes rather uickly and all at the end I suppose this mirrors how memory works but it felt a bit strange at times while reading it Overall though highly recommended

    E–book [Trauma by Patrick McGrath] review Trauma by Patrick McGrath Ye gods how the mighty are fallen McGrath has written some excellent broody downright strange Gothic novels but this one is a sucker punch to every astute reader's sensibilities None of the characters are likeable and none of the situations are especially compelling The main character is a self absorbed pig which makes me wonder why any woman would sleep with him And why is everybody smoking in the novel? You'd think it

    E–book [Trauma by Patrick McGrath] Jeez The writing is outstanding without ever standing out McGrath is a pro And I can just imagine the wicked glee McGrath took in composing this ruthlessly lightless story Charlie Weir is a shrink specializing in trauma who of course is suffering from his own trauma Which the trauma is pretty harrowing It's a very 'old New York' story and the city rarely improves this guy's mood Read it on a stormy afternoon it's not that long wi
