Fiction. Literature. HTML:A NEW YORK TIMES 10 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR AND A NEW YORKER "ESSENTIAL READ"
NAMED A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORKER AND VOGUE

??Bennett writes like no one else. She is a rare talent, and Checkout 19 is a masterful novel.? ??Karl Ove Knausgaard
From the author of the ??dazzling. . . . and daring? Pond (O magazine), the adventures of a young woman discovering her own genius, through the people she meets??and dreams up??along the way.

In a working-class town in a county west of London, a schoolgirl scribbles stories in the back pages of her exercise book, intoxicated by the first sparks of her imagination.  As she grows, everything and everyone she encounters become fuel for a burning talent. The large Russian man in the ancient maroon car who careens around the grocery store where she works as a checkout clerk, and slips her a copy of Beyond Good and Evil. The growing heaps of other books in which she loses??and finds??herself. Even the derailing of a friendship, in a devastating violation. The thrill of learning to conjure characters and scenarios in her head is matched by the exhilaration of forging her own way in the world, the two kinds of ingenuity kindling to a brilliant conflagration.
Exceeding the extraordinary promise of Bennett??s mold-shattering debut, Checkout 19 is a radical affirmation of the power of the imagination and the magic escape those

This is a stream-of-consciousness novel about reading and writing. The narrator talks about how she read books as a kid, lists the books she had and had not read at a certain age, describes some pivotal moments in her life, and describes in great detail a novel that she wrote (and, like Borges's map, in describing the novel, she essentially writes it again). The thread that ties all of this together is the extent to which books - both those she reads and those she writes - do and do not relate to real life. In particular, she focuses on the scene in A Room With A View where Lucy witnesses the murder of the Italian man in the piazza. As the narrator travels to Venice, and experiences her own upheavals in life, she comes back to that scene and how her own experience was similar or different. Since the book is stream-of-consciousness, it seems to ramble very arbitrarily, but there is a stunning moment towards the end of the book when the whole thing comes into very sharp focus. This is not an easy book to read, but Bennett is brilliant and the payoff is worth it. ( )

I thought this book was bizarre. The girl is a writer, imagining stories and writing them in her exercise book. She talks about her love of books and all the books she read throughout her life. Starting with her childhood, exploring her mother's shelves, and then moving through her life and her experiences.
I did like the multitude of books she mentions, and the style of writing, but I just couldn't connect with the story itself. ( )

Believe me, expression is insanity, it arises out of our insanity. It also has to do with turning pages, with hunting from one page to the other, with flight, with complicity in an absurd, gushing effusion, with a vile overflow of verse, with insuring life in a single sentence, and, in turn, with the sentences seeking insurance in life.

Malina, Ingeborg Bachmann, 1971
There is at times a magic in identity of position; it is one of the things that have suggested to us eternal comradeship. She moved her elbows before saying: "I have behaved ridiculously."
A Room with a View, E. M. Forster, 1908
