The Naked Eye( Series - NEW DIRECTIONS PAPERBOOK ) (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 1,144

���Tawada���s slender accounts of alienation achieve a remarkable potency.������Michael Porter, The New York Times A precocious Vietnamese high school student ��� known as the pupil with ���the iron blouse������in Ho Chi Minh City is invited to an International Youth Conference in East Berlin. But, in East Berlin, as she is preparing to present her paper in Russian on ���Vietnam as a Victim of American Imperialism,��� she is abruptly kidnapped and taken to a small town in West Germany. After a strange spell of domestic-sexual boredom with her lover-abductor���and though ���the Berlin Wall was said to be more difficult to break through than the Great Wall of China��� ��� she escapes on a train to Moscow . . . but mistakenly arrives in Paris. Alone, broke, and in a completely foreign land, Anh (her false name) loses herself in the films of Catherine Deneuve as her real adventures begin.

Dreamy, meditative, and filled with the gritty everyday perils of a person living somewhere without papers (at one point Anh is subjected to some vampire-like skin experiments), The Naked Eye is a novel that is as surprising as it is delightful���each of the thirteen chapters titled after and framed by one of Deneuve���s films. ���As far as I was concerned,��� the narrator says while watching Deneuve on the screen, ���the only woman in the world was you, and so I did not exist.��� By the time 1989 comes along and the Iron Curtain falls, story and viewer have morphed into the dislocating beauty of both dancer and dance.
