French Mort cr dit , US translation Death on the Installment Plan, is a novel by author Louis Ferdinand C line, published in 1936 In Death on Credit, Ferdinand, C line s alter ego, is a doctor in Paris, treating the poor who seldom pay him but take every advantage of his availability The action is not continuous but goes back in time to earlier memories and often moves into fantasy, especially in Ferdinand s sexual escapades the style becomes deliberately rougher and sentences disintegrate to catch the flavour of the teeming world of everyday Parisian tragedies, struggles to make a living, illness, venereal disease, the sordid stories of families whose destiny is governed by their own stupidity, malice, lust and greed 2006 1385 722 9643058263 9789643058265 20 When we immerse ourselves

space, and out of every day life The words on the page are the alchemy that allows this to happen but only if they are chosen and arranged in a way that appeals to our individual reading tastes If they don t appeal, we readers get stuck on our own side of the looking glass, and we can only view the characters, the plot, and the writing with cynical eyes In the worst scenario, we may scoff at the book so much that eventually we throw it across the room where it hits the mirror and crashes to the ground proving us exactly right.I can imagine a scenario where a reader might throw this book across the room The words on C line s pages are not chosen to appeal There are no sentences to swoon over, no characters to invest in, and not much plot to follow Scoffing at the whole endeavor would be very easy And yet I know that if I threw this book across the room and it hit the mirror, it would sail right through it, the alchemy on its pages is so powerful Yes, this book breaks all the rules, the rules of writing and the rules of reading The novel isn t interested in beguiling the reader with fine sentences There are no descriptions of delicate emotional states, sublime sunsets or moonlight glistening on water If there is water mentioned, it s not the surface that gets the focus No, it s what s under the surface, the murk and mud and filth that we prefer to ignore C line takes pleasure in stirring up every kind of detritus imaginable so that his books boil and seethe and fester on every page Reading his words is like assisting at the creation of the world matter swirls in a giant vortex, and the reader swirls alongside it There s no way out until the final page But there was no way I would have chosen to leave this book before the final page That s the alchemy of C line s words I ve been thinking about the title of this book and of its prequel sequel, Voyage au bout de la nuit There s a sense in which both titles have the same meaning life thundering on towards death but with built in pauses that are like the way stages of a journey or the paying down of installments on a debt There are journeys in both books and people harassed by debt in both books But the debt which the main character seems to be constantly paying off is the debt for having been born, a debt that will never be paid until he reaches the end of the journey of life Voyage, published in 1932 was written first, and recounts episodes from the adult life of the main character whose name is Ferdinand, like the author This book, published in 1936, fills the reader in on Ferdinand s childhood and adolescence It ends just before he signs up for the army which is where Voyage begins In C line s Death on the Installment Plan, scornful young Ferdinand unenthusiastically lugs readers along on the series of farcical mis adventures also known as his childhood We encounter monstrously preposterous characters and stories with varying dimensions of outlandish implausibility And through it all, we end up sympathizing completely with his disgust, contempt, frustration, and underlying disappointment For although Ferdinand is emphatically vitriolic, bitter, pessimistic and snide, h In C line s Death on the Installment Plan, scornful young Ferdinand unenthusiastically lugs readers along on the series of farcical mis adventures also known as his childhood We encounter monstrously preposterous characters and stories with varying dimensions of outlandish implausibility And through it all, we end up sympathizing completely with his disgust, contempt, frustration, and underlying disappointment For although Ferdinand is emphatically vitriolic, bitter, pessimistic and snide, he is also scathingly, irresistibly funny And it isfor Ferdinand s violently colorful personality than for the story itself that I found this book so engaging This is not to say the plot is insignificant far from it Many of his tall tales are delightfully exuberant They cannot sit still They squirm and wriggle and smirk But it s Ferdinand s singular voice that s truly unforgettable He has this weird undercurrent of vibrantly angry energy roiling and heaving and occasionally bursting out irrepressibly just beneath his smug, sneering, I don t give a shit facade He is viciously, unapologetically ALIVE under his brittle show of indifference And though he claims that hedoesn t know how to win friends and influence people,he certainly won me over during this charming snot fest of a book But it s possible I was just overly impressed by all those gorgeous little insults of hisThey can all go shit in their hats They can rot with leprosy They can stew in a million kettles full of snot and cockroaches I ll stir them myself Let them pickle Let them whirl in gangreneSuch a darling way with words Oh, and he also has the best temper tantrums aroundI outdid them all in violence thanks to the intensity of my revolt my sincerity my destructive enthusiasm my implacable tetanism my frenzy my anathematic writhing It was unbelievable what a paroxysm I could work myself up into in my total fury I got all that from my dad and the performances I d been through For temper tantrums I had no equal The worst lunatics, the most delirious interpretive screwballs didn t stand a chance if I decided to take a fling, if I really wanted to bestir myself Young as I was they all left with their asses dragging absolutely bewildered by the intensity of my hatred my indomitable fury, the eternal thirst for vengeance that I harbored in my flanks.Overall, this was funnier, dirtier, and yet alsomoving than hispopular Journey to the End of the Night If you ve ever enjoyed sitting in dark corners at nauseating parties, mocking theblatant displays of absurdity with a satisfyingly sarcastic friend, this may be the book for you It made me want to be aderisive person It put the joy and vitality back into cynicism And, most importantly, it got me to laugh, both at others and at myself.What can I say C line is my homeboy
