"Buzzy and enthralling ...A glorious novel about empires and erasures, husbands and wives, staggering fortunes and unspeakable misery...Fun as hell to read." --Oprah Daily "A genre-bending, time-skipping story about New York City's elite in the roaring '20s and Great Depression."--Vanity Fair "A riveting story of class, capitalism, and greed." --Esquire "Captivating."--NPR "Exhilarating." --New York TimesAn unparalleled novel about money, power, intimacy, and perception Even through the roar and effervescence of the 1920s, everyone in New York has heard of Benjamin and Helen Rask. He is a legendary Wall Street tycoon; she is the daughter of eccentric aristocrats. Together, they have risen to the very top of a world of seemingly endless wealth--all as a decade of excess and speculation draws to an end. But at what cost have they acquired their immense fortune? This is the mystery at the center of Bonds, a successful 1937 novel that all of New York seems to have read. Yet there are other versions of this tale of privilege and deceit.     Hernan Diaz's TRUST elegantly puts these competing narratives into conversation with one another--and in tension with the perspective of one woman bent on disentangling fact from fiction. The result is a novel that spans over a century and becomes more exhilarating with each new revelation.     At once an immersive story and a brilliant literary puzzle, TRUST engages the reader in a quest for the truth while confronting the deceptions that often live at the heart of personal relationships, the reality-warping force of capital, and the ease with which power can manipulate facts.… (mais)

    The Lacuna por Barbara Kingsolver (allthegoodbooks)
    allthegoodbooks: One of the themes of The Lacuna is about truth and who is telling it. This is the same in Trust. Both use different genre to do this and both leave the answer open as to how and who you should trust.

I know, it won the Pulitzer, but this book just didn't work for me. Maybe financial / stock market people get more out of it, and things went over my head. However, I did love the book that shared the Pulitzer with this book (Demon Copperhead). ( )

Booker longlisted this year, Trust was an impressively structured and involving historical fiction about a tycoon & his wife countered by his ghost writer, daughter of an Italian anarchist. The novel-within-a-novel form escaped my notice until past the midpoint but I was still interested enough to continue despite this puzzle. Perhaps a bit too much finance, but characters were of interest as were the ideas. ( )

This book is structurally complex and layered. Four parts, each with a different point of view.

Part I tells the story of the Rask family and wasn't that interesting. Melodramatic, no dialogue. Part II is the unfinished autobiography of a real financier, Andrew Bevel, and his wife, Mildred. But wait...it's the same story...sort of.

By Part III we learn what is going on. Andrew Bevel is incensed at the successful novel, Bonds, which everyone believes is written about him and his wife. He wants to set the record straight by publishing his memoir. He hires a young woman, Ida, to type and refine his story. She narrates Part III, which is very interesting and brings the first two parts into their proper perspectives. Part IV are the journals of Mildred Bevel. And where we learn the truth.

Well written, with the structure really working to create tension. By Part III, I couldn't put it down. I was a little disappointed in the surprise reveal in the journals...to me, it wasn't all that surprising at all.

The writing is amazing. The fictional novel, isn't well written...the author manages to write in a completely different way from his own writing style, which starts to show fully in part three. Part III not only brings the story together, it gives a wonderful portrait of life in the 1920s and 1930s in New York. ( )

I wanted to give this 5 stars because "a book that stays with you" is one that is a great book. I admit I did not see what happened between Bonds and the Autobiography. I was confused....and it took Ida to help me understand the two. I had to go back and reread Bonds. Reading other reviews below, I am increasingly interested in the writing and the construction of this book...and the story that goes beyond and deeper that Helen and Mildred, Andrew and Benjamin. The word Trust means so much....but really what does it mean? Mr. Diaz asks us to think about that. ( )

Like 3.5 stars but only because it didn't speak to me. Hard to understand what was happening at first because i went in blind. But as it worked out it was a creative approach. Didn't really sing to my heart or anything but obviously talented work. ( )

Though framed as a novel, “Trust” is actually an intricately constructed quartet of stories — what Wall Street traders would call a 4-for-1 stock split.... In summary “Trust” sounds repellently overcomplicated, but in execution it’s an elegant, irresistible puzzle. The novel isn’t just about the way history and biography are written; it’s a demonstration of that process. By the end, the only voice I had any faith in belonged to Diaz.

Trust by Hernan Diaz is one of those novels that's always pulling a fast one on a reader. Take the opening section: You settle in, become absorbed in the story and, then, 100 pages or so later — Boom! — the novel lurches into another narrative that upends the truth of everything that came before.... Trust is all about money, particularly, the flimflam force of money in the stock market, and its potential, as a character says, "to bend and align reality" to its own purposes.... Literary fiction, too, is a fantastic commodity in which our best writers become criminals of the imagination, stealing our attention and our very desires. Diaz, whose last novel, In the Distance, reworked the myths of masculine individualism in the American West, makes an artistic fortune in Trust. And we readers make out like bandits, too.

Trust: both a moral quality and a financial arrangement, as though virtue and money were synonymous. The term also has a literary bearing: Can we trust this tale? Is this narrator reliable? ... Taken together, the four parts make “Trust” into a strangely self-reflexive work: strangely, because unlike some metafictional exercises this book does more than chase its own tail. The true circularity here lies in the workings of capital, in a monetary system so self-referential that it has forgotten what Diaz himself remembers. For “Trust” always acknowledges the world that lies outside its own pages. It recognizes the human costs of a great fortune, even though its characters can see nothing beyond their own calculations; they are most guilty when most innocent, most enthralled by the abstraction of money itself.

...a kaleidoscope of capitalism run amok in the early 20th century, which also manages to deliver a biography of its irascible antihero and the many lives he disfigures during his rise to the cream of the city’s crop. Grounded in history and formally ambitious, this succeeds on all fronts. Once again, Diaz makes the most of his formidable gifts

Structurally, Diaz’s novel is a feat of literary gamesmanship in the tradition of David Mitchell or Richard Powers. Diaz has a fine ear for the differing styles each type of document requires: Bonds is engrossing but has a touch of the fusty, dialogue-free fiction of a century past, and Ida is a keen, Lillian Ross–type observer. But more than simply succeeding at its genre exercises, the novel brilliantly weaves its multiple perspectives to create a symphony of emotional effects; what’s underplayed by Harold is thundered by Andrew, provided nuance by Ida, and given a plot twist by Mildred. So the novel overall feels complex but never convoluted, focused throughout on the dissatisfactions of wealth and the suppression of information for the sake of keeping up appearances. No one document tells the whole story, but the collection of palimpsests makes for a thrilling experience and a testament to the power and danger of the truth—or a version of it—when it’s set down in print. A clever and affecting high-concept novel of high finance.

Because he had enjoyed almost every advantage since birth, one of the few privileges denied to Benjamin Rask was that of a heroic rise: his was not a story of an unbreakable will forging a golden destiny for itself out of little more than dross.

Those who accused him of being excessively frugal failed to understand that, in truth, he had no appetites to repress.
most men smoked so that they could talk to other men.
the ideal conditions for business were never given. One had to create them.
self-interest, if properly directed, need not be divorced from the common good
These two principles (we make our own weather; personal gain ought to be a public asset) I have always striven to follow.
