Jun 05, Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly rated it really liked it The thousands of my fans here at goodreads. Around 40 years after I first heard it, people in my small town still knows what a poo-choot is. There were a lot of poo-choots in my town. Then, and even now. They are those in almost all cases I know, male, most of them unmarried who do not do anything productive.

The poo-choots survive, even with their unproductive lives, because they usually have females in the family working, or they have income from a few hectares of coconut plantations they inherited, or generous relatives siblings, children, etc. Besides, it takes very little to keep a poo-choot alive.

Written like a journal, the first entry is for December 15, Joseph, a Chicago resident, has resigned from his regular job and is waiting to be drafted into the Army and fight in the war.

Seven months had passed, but Joseph is still waiting to be inducted into the Army. With nothing to do, he "dangles. There were formerly baking days, washing days, days that began events and days that ended them. But now they are undistinguished, all equal, and it is difficult to tell Tuesday from Saturday. When he neglects to look carefully at the newspaper he does not know what day it it. If he guesses Friday and then learn that it is actually Thursday, he does not experience any great pleasure in having won twenty-four hours.

That really is a victory to celebrate. I am fascinated by it, and a little jealous. He can maintain himself. Is it because he is an artist? I believe it is. Those acts of the imagination save him. But what about me? I have no talent for that sort of thing. My talent, if I have one at all, is for being a citizen, or what is today called, most apologetically, a good man. Is there some sort of personal effort I can substitute for the imagination?

He continues that his friend "is better of"-- "There he is in New York, painting; and in spite of the calamity, the lies and moral buggery, the odium, the detritus of wrong and sorrow dropped on every heart, in spite of these, he can keep a measure of cleanliness and freedom. Besides, those acts of the imagination are in the strictest sense not personal.

Through them he is connected with the best part of mankind. He feels this and he can never be isolated, left aside. He has a community. I have this six-sided box. And goodness is achieved not in a vacuum, but in the company of other men, attended by love. I, in this room, separate, alienated, distrustful, find in my purpose not an open world, but a closed, hopeless jail. My perspectives end in the walls. Nothing of the future comes to me.

Only the past, in its shabbiness and innocence. Some men seem to know exactly where their opportunities lie; they break prisons and cross whole Siberias to pursue them. One room holds me. When I left for college they were there, smiling, wishing me luck. When I returned 20 or so years after, they were still there, older, but still smiling, keeping close, hoping that I treat them to rounds of beer.

And you wonder, at the end of your own life, who had lived better.

Bellow celebrated his birthday in June, although he may have been born in July in the Jewish community, it was customary to record the Hebrew date of birth, which does not always coincide with the Gregorian calendar.
