philosopher Pycletius tarbony treesand Boulevard Liqueur They’re all just figments of Jim Crace’s extremely active imagination The 68-year-old award winning writer of completely invented worlds known to his readers as “Craceland” takes great delight in conning his readers who are flummoxed when they Google names animals and places from most of his 11 novels only to find that they don’t exist But his fantastical plots are not to be mistaken as frivolous: Crace is deadly serious when he writes “convincing lies” about communities in the Stone Age in the Judean desert during the Industrial Revolution and wants to be believed when he’s writing about food sex and the smell of smoke in the English countryside In between sessions at the 2014 Jaipur Literature Festival Crace paused to chat about flying a kite in Craceland and telling a few fibs Excerpts: You said once that the process of writing for you is one of “abandonment” What do you mean by that Imagine that you are a small child going to the top of a hill with a kite You have to know how to unwrap the kite how to pull the strings to loop the loop and write your name in the sky But the kite does not fly without the wind It’s a mixture of control and abandonment The writer has to take his or her control to the word processor; in my case I have to be prepared to abandon myself to the wind of narrative You also said once that storytelling is about telling convincing lies What is the most troublesome part of having to navigate through the world of Craceland Telling lies convincingly For me telling lies is not a problem Honestly (laughs) Look at the stories from the Hindu epics with all the animals and creatures with four arms… We know that it is not zoology Invention in good literature is the Trojan horse through which we smuggle in ideas So there’s realism which holds a mirror up to the world and there’s the kind of writing that I do which is traditional and ancient to humankind where we don’t hold a mirror up to the world but present fantasies And fantasies are powerful But your books are very realistic and so are the worlds your characters inhabit Yes because you don’t want people to think I’m only joking You want people to take it deadly seriously In a mischievous way I want to fool people In Being Dead one of the main characters was a creature called Sprayhopper that lived in the spray on the beach and fed on the spray No such creature exists Now they’re making a film on this book and the American producer called me up and wanted to know where he could film Sprayhoppers I love that because it means that something which doesn’t exist has become tangible The opening quotation in Continent is from an invented character Pycletius You will find an entry about Pycletius in the Oxford Dictionary of Contemporary Literature because people believe he exists So telling convincing lies that everyone believes is much more fun than telling obvious lies Do you draw up a map for your make-believe world I just take the kite to the hilltop I know that sounds terribly pretentious but it’s actually scientific The point I’m making is that one shouldn’t be airy-fairy new age-y about writing fiction It’s a human attribute it’s a part of our consciousness human beings have these special abilities that set them apart from other animals Our sense of death our knowledge of the past our imagining of the future our narrative abilities our ability to laugh the ability to speak in different languages all of these attributes are scientific and Darwinist-based So when I say that storytelling is a natural thing and not a new age-y thing I mean that in the sense of the natural history of things We’ve evolved the ability to tell stories because it confers upon us an advantage and it enables us to plan for the future to relive the past to think of what argument we’re going to have with our husband or wife before we have it to experience death before death comes or divorce or any of those bad things So if you trust narrative you don’t need to make decisions before you start writing I just turn up at the top of the hill with my kite and I wait But then of course you must remember that I’m pulling strings and then gradually it gets better you find that the wind’s lifted And then it’s wonderful I don’t like starting I don’t like the walk up the hill You’ve called yourself an “outrospective writer” not an introspective one Does no part of your life feature in your narratives Is that possible No it’s not possible But you can consider that there are writers for example Jane Austen RK Narayan — you can see the life that they led the villages they visited the classes they mixed with the countryside and the nations they came from in their writing I’m not very obviously autobiographical like that partly because I’ve had a very happy life and happiness doesn’t lend itself to literature But you can’t hide yourself completely from a book If you read my books you’ll know that I’m Left wing that I love natural history If you were in a pub with me I’d drive you mad I’d be like some North Korean activist My novels aren’t like that and you can tell They show themselves in different ways as well When I wrote Six or Genesis as it’s called in America which is a book about sex and procreation and children… it was supposed to be a joyful book… a light book but it turned out to be very dark Why Because when I was writing it my mother was dying and I was her sole carer and they were very ugly two years And there’s no way you can hide that When I was writing Being Dead I was in a very good place and in a happy mood and that book about death was an optimistic book So your life will seep through it will stain the page Would you call yourself a reluctant nove-list You’ve said that you’d rather be play-ing tennis than writing and you began wri-ting a little later than was expected of you I was a writer I was a journalist Human beings aren’t just one narrow set of things and we talked about abandonment and control as opposites I’m not trying to make a world theory out of it but I have two opposite parts of my character I’m very subversive and I’m very open-hearted in many ways But I’ve got a very strong puritanical streak which made me want to change the world tomorrow made me become a journalist The self-indulgent mischievous playful streak then allowed me to become a novelist But the puritanical streak was the stronger streak and in a way I would have liked to stay a journalist all my life It was a great lifestyle I travelled all over the world I changed my subject matter every three weeks a dilettante person like me likes it I felt useful I felt like I was engaging in political debate So I never imagined that if I turned to write novels I’d become as lucky as I have been You’ve written plays for the BBC short stories and novels Was the transition from one form to another a seamless one or were there any hurdles Yes seamless You can worry about all sorts of things if you decide to worry about the form You just have to get on with it My best advice to writers is to remember that no one needs your book No one needs my book there are plenty of books in the bookshop If I don’t write another novel it won’t matter You’re only doing it because you want to you volunteered Do it privately get on with it Don’t waste time looking at a blank screen — write badly and then improve and improve and improve There’s nothing to be frightened of except your own prevarication For all the latest City Others News download Indian
