The unhurried processes and careful results of his photography, taken on the streets and in the homes of the people of Johannesburg, provide the calm pulse of the novel, except for those who are too old-fashioned to shoot digital. But for most of the art’s history – until about fifteen years ago – most photographers had no choice but to be slow. Film had to be loaded into a camera, the shot had to be taken with some awareness of the cost of materials, the negative had to be developed and the print had to be enlarged.

In Double Negative Racquel J. Gates places us in front of image after black image that folks concerned with the . Gates places us in front of image after black image that folks concerned with the 'positive' representation of the race have tried, unsuccessfully, to repress. In the process, this willfully disobedient book challenges us to look at ourselves, as readers-the aesthetic judgments, political assumptions, old anxieties, and surprising pleasures that animate our encounters with blackness onscreen.

This book coheres resplendently by its metaphorical underpinnings, by something rare in the world of contemporary fiction: meanin. ouble Negative listens carefully to the sound of the ebb and flow of history and transcribes it in lucid, rigorous prose; Vladislavic is no minor congener of Sebald.

Double Negative is in three parts, dealing respectively with youth, a return from exile and maturity. The plot is light: through the drift of vaguely connected incident, all set down as though remembered, Vladislavić draws the reader into a notion that this is a memoir. But these are stories about an invented self interacting with other invented persons. It is not recollection – but it is also not not recollection. It is a double negative

Let’s take a real-world example. In 2012, President Obama spoke at United Nations about the Iran nuclear issue. America wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. But that time is not unlimited.

  • Double Negative is an important, bold piece of writing. The expertise and skill of Vladislavic is evident from the start. Essentially, the photographed visual image is brought to the reader in literary form, with plot and character development fairly flat - left for the most part undeveloped, so to speak. There were however two disturbing elements that bothered this reader and that I believe, weakened the profound nature of the work. One was the weighted judgmental position of the protagonist – or to be harsher his creator, the writer. Almost all the characters who take a position with opinion or ideology are disdainful, ugly, crude. The heroes are the subjects within the photographs – the simple folk who live and simply do what they do including the narrator and his hero Auerbach. No subtleties or complexity of inner struggles here. The other glaring problem is metaphor and analogy overload. It reaches absurd proportions, and rather than displaying the writer’s proficiency, grows weary on us and frankly smacks of exhibitionism. By the time the oven “liberates” wafts and the oven gloves turn into sharks and Leora, the wife who has no more depth that an on-stage prop, spoon-feeds us with the double negative meaning – well, I was already glancing down to see how much remained of the book and considering taking the emergency exit. But I decided to endure and suffer until we arrived at Wellness Week at the mall and the finale, the child and father in the game of urban exploration: wonderful stuff. Rich, beautiful and a fine ending.

  • I honestly did not think I would love this book but I really did. Neville is a young white man in starting off in apartheid era South Africa trying to find himself as a young person really- no real political inclinations that you could pick up. He clearly seems to have no real direction or plan with his life, and to prod him along his father introduces him to photographer Saul Auerbach who in turn invites Nev, to spend a day with him and Brookes, a British journalist, on this day Nev's life is changed as he sees his city, his country and ultimately himself through the wiley and crafty lens of Auerbach's photography. Fast forward a couple of years, and Nev leaves South Africa for London where he establishes himself as a photographer. Eventually returns to post apartheid Johannesburg, which is nothing like what he knew. I enjoyed travelling through post apartheid South Africa through Vladislavic's descriptions. I loved the honesty, it was not simpering sweet liberal descriptions that you normally get from South African writers. It was reality through Nev's lens and not necessarily pretty. The story is well narrated and written. Language to point and the descriptions of Johannesburg absolutelty on point. I am looking forward to reading more of this author's books.

  • Very unusual writing, making excellent use of rhetoeical deices.

  • This is a very witty biographic story, which manages to describe the same person throughout different stages in his life using different language and style. - Very nice.

  • The introduction points out the heavy use of metaphor throughout and I must admit it was a way too liberal dose for my liking with just about every paragraph containing some kind of metaphor. Some were wonderful, others just distracting and although the whole structure, the characters and the references could be read as a metaphor for South Africa moving through transition it became a little to laboured like an overloaded donkey traversing a rocky mountain path.

  • This is a fictionalized memoir, written by a true wordsmith. This is a journey the early part of which is set in Apartheid South Africa through the narrator's return post-Apartheid. This is an internal journey, not a historical one. Touching on the truths of our inner selves which are often subsumed by our public selves.
    Do yourself the favor of saving the Introduction for last, as it is a love song to this book of metaphor...but gives us too many examples from the text: robbing us of the joy of meeting them in the narrative. Vladislavic's rememberings are swimming in metaphors, and he is superb in that simplified analogy.
    Loved it, loved it!
