Characters Ý eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ David Grand David Grand ´ 7 Read Mount Terminus Review ¶ 107 Hat has revolutionized the nascent art of filmmaking There Bloom grows up in the shadow of his father's grief with only a pair of servants the house's ghosts and his own artistic muse for company But Jacob can't forever protect his family from his past the dramatic series of events that has taken him from the Hebrew Orphan Asylum on New York City's Lower East Side and into the graces of beautiful twin girls and finally to this fragile refuge in pre Hollywood Los Angeles And Bloom now David Grand s Mount Terminus is an ultimate coming of age story it also concerns itself with the coming of age of an artist the protagonist Bloom Beyond the journeying the discovering of self Grand gracefully builds a dramatic and subtle interior and exterior worldThe serious business here is that Grand has written an essential origin story that builds like layers of limestone His complicated characters grow into in a world that doesn t uite exist yet pre modern Los Angeles and this central uestion of origin asserts itself as a universal and spiritual focus for his inhabitantsMount Terminus is a book that dives deep What I like most is its assured originality its surprising strangeness I think there is much to be said in our own modern age of disappearing attention spans and rapidly changing technology about newness and how or why we should embrace change We must and we are better off for it Invention and modernity exist at the core of Bloom s California and these are also the reasons to embrace this serious text There is a lot to discover and love Grand s landscapes are culled from the hard earth of the American West and are just as beautifully written the language is much like the landscapes he invents familiar and packed with so much time so much life Through Bloom Grand takes the time to name what he sees in the new world the beginning of everything we take for granted Beyond the landscape are the technologies of early filmmaking phasmatropes kinetoscopes zoetropes and the glass telescope through which Bloom watches the world of Hollywood being built below him The story has a way of bringing us in close and far away sometimes at the same time so that we may feel the thrill of being present at the focal point Perhaps what is most moving about this epic novel is that Grand takes the creator s command of the recognizable strained familial relationships new technologies the emergence of an entire landscape the interior life of an artist Between the beautiful and skillful language and the verbal and visual communication between characters we the readers may feel as if we ve just walked out of one of Bloom s brilliant films as if we ll walk out of the darkness into the light as changed people
