A Dance of Sisters lThrough the streets of Hav This is mostly implicit in Last Letters From Hav though Morris does inform the reader that The maze is so universal a token of Hav appears so often inegends and artistic references of all kinds that one comes to take it for granted According to Morris It certainly seems true that if there is one constant factor binding the artistic and creative centuries together it is an idiom of the impenetrable The artists of Hav have oved the opaue than the specific the intuitive than the rationalThe connection to the concept of the abyrinth both physical and metaphysical is made far explicit in Hav of the Myrmidons in which Morris returns to a post Intervention Hav that has been forever altered Gone are the domes spires meandering streets and chaotic din of old Hav which have been replaced by a Chinese financed brand new metropolis of mirror glass steel and concrete metallic regimented The old city has been cut off from its garden island of Lazaretto which has become a sort of contemporary Dubai a glittering playground of Boating for Beginners luxury designed for foreign nouveaux riches aptly renamed Lazaretto Morris soon finds however that the seeming regimentation and rationalization of the city she knew has in no way reduced its vertiginous complexityThe entropic despotism of old Hav has been replaced by a nightmare surveillance state styling itself the Holy Myrmidonic Republic the symbol of which is a two thousand foot tower soaring above the resort of Lazaretto and adorned at its spire by a giant illuminated M which continually changes color The new Hav as is clear to Morris is a complete simulacrum of a farce The HMR prevents tourists from entering the old city Morris has a two week visa with an exemption thanks to some old acuaintances monitors every conversation produces genetically modified snow raspberries in an Atwoodian touch renamed Havberries with importedabor from Uzbekistan and Afghanistan to can and export and has rewritten and whitewashed its jumbled history to present the most sanitary face to potential foreign investorsWhile Hav of the Myrmidons feels a Chinese Whispers little too obviously polemic and perhaps that s because the current dystopian moment has witnessed Atwood s two most recent novels The Hunger Games trilogy and Super Sad True Love Story not to mention the events of the six years intervening Morris s prose remains crisp and effusive as in the earlier work If the allegory of Hav is that identity and history are just as malleable and in flux as topography the two halves complement each other uite effectivelyOf course Morris herself says in the epilogue that even she doesn t know whether an essential allegory of Hav exists which is mostikely the point At any rate this volume contains a Wheres Mummy Mouse? lifetime worth of sensual experience and some of the mostuminous and unforgettable writing I have ever encounteredHav by Jan MorrisNYRB ClassicsISBN 978 1590174494320 pages An excellent example of that small sub genre the invented place set in our own worldOther examples I ve read have tended to feel Get Over Your Damn Self like a mish mash of existing places This is different Jan Morris really makes you feelike Hav is real and further worth making the effort to visit at Alpha Dog (Weredog Chronicles) least in its original form This was somewhat interesting but I m not sure the of the point of it I always feel with projects of this sort that I am wasting my time reading something informative in tone but non factual in content Essentially why read a cultural study or travelogue about a made up place when there are plenty of real ones about which I could be better informed I am dropping this unfinished and will try something else by the author at someater date I have never in my Mr. Funny life read a book two times in a row Until I read Hav This was possible because Hav is not a novel in the ordinary sense It s a travel memoir to a fictional place that could easily exist it s a meditation on East meeting West on history and culture and modernity it s about being a stranger in somewhere simultaneously familiar and alien And it has some of the most wonderful prose I ve come across This section from Hav illuminates many of the aspects that make the book so wonderful The boats often use their sails and when one comes into the harbour on a southern wind canvas bulging flag streaming keeling gloriously with a slap slap of waves on its prow and its bare brown torsoed Greeks exuberantlyaughing and shouting to each other it is as though young navigators have found their way to Hav out of the bright heroic past p66This It s beautiful for a start It suggests that conjunction of somewhere existing both in the present and somehow in the past that makes Hav so intriguing And it s uoted back at its author in the second part of the book as an indication of her own understanding of HavWe re all about the meta Two thirds of the book was written and published in the 1980s According to Ursula e Guin who wrote the INTRODUCTION IT LED TO PEOPLE GOING TO THEIR TRAVEL it ed to people going to their travel Saying Yes to the Millionaire looking to book a ticket to Hav because it was so convincing Now it really is convincing but at the same time there are aspects that make it uite clear that Hav is a fiction Like the fact that you ve never seen it on a map maybe I was confused by that until Iook Jan Morris up and discovered that she has written many actual travel books under that name and as James Morris So I concede that perhaps if you knew her earlier wo Morris most everyone knows is one of the premier travel writers of the 20th Century She went everywhere and wrote with such interest and erudition about the places she visited that one reads her works simply because she writes better than anyone else One publisher gave her the opportunity to write fiction and Morris created an invented place Hav to which publisher gave her the opportunity to write fiction and Morris created an invented place Hav to which folks immediately wanted to book a flight This novel is composed of two parts in Last Letters from Hav Morris describes for us her first glimpse of the Protectorate of Hav its residents flora fauna religions and origins In Hav of the Myrmidons written twenty years The Majors Guarded Heart / The Highlanders Dangerous Temptation / Paying the Vikings Price later Morris returns to a much changed Protectorate In the Epilogue to the combined novel called simply Hav published by nyrb Morris tells us that the allegories of old Hav have been transmuted from a place of overlapping ancient cultures but with familiar signposts based in history to allegories of civic prodigieshitherto inconceivable and themselves all but fictional still Hav is an international protectorate near the Black Sea and on the Mediterranean Every major nation had its representatives there ensconced in formerly grand buildings that carried a storied history When Morris visited in the 1980 s Hav was rundown and a tiny bit disreputable but the glamour of earlier days still shone through Morris shares her first impressions upon her arrival at night monotonous and cold stark and forbidding and those again modified by clear morningight bright colorful polyglot She stays several months buys an automobile and travels by ferry to outlying islands She meets the important citizens and Sons of the Devil, Vol. 2 legal representatives of countries occupying national concessions in Hav and witnesses the major celebrations the coming of the snow raspberries and the Roof Race Her visits to The Iron Dog and The House of the Chinese Master the most astonishing aesthetic experience Hav can offer are accompanied by marvelously detailed descriptions composed of wonder and aweThe novel is just a travel memoir a very good one with historical references and informative notes about where to find the best food until Morris comes to her discussion of the British Concession and its history in the province Morris seems to become much pointed in her references when she describes the British consul his wife and English interests in establishing a base in Hav Morris includes notes General CJ Napier wrote to his wife about Hav A dreadful hole worse than Sind and Oh what a foretaste of hell this is The British always kept some distance from true involvement in theife of Hav they Merry Christmas, Daddy loathed the Protectorate created buildings thatooked uite ike those created in India for their comfort And Were Reputed To House were reputed to house spies in their officesWe earn that celebrities and eaders from many countries visited Hav in its heyday Morris description of Nijinsky

Ilby and the shadowy Sir Edmund Backhouse scholarly sinologist and baronet were all said to have stayed there at some time or anotherAn escarpment just to the north of Hav was home to a cave dwelling tribe of troglodytes who never settled in the city proper but who form a still iving bridge between the city and its remotest origins Their A Convenient Wife language has a fragile connection with the Celtic but is still incomprehensible to everyone outside their group It is said when they first saw the peninsula upon which Hav now sits surrounded by blue sea they called the place Summer or hav in the surviving Celticanguage of the West The underlying political structure of Hav was a shambles of competing interests and insufficiently expansionist beliefs which added to the rich confusion of organic growth in the A Colton Target labyrinthine city Hav wasikewise a rich stew of religions all in stages of isolation from their original tenets One mysterious group called Cathars of Hav was composed of secret members of the community and whose ceremonies and meetings involve robes and chants in underground Love Isnt Enough locations The Cathars are said to trace their history to the Crusades and their beliefs to Manicheanism or the dualistic cosmology between the forces of good and evil darkness andight This group alone gives Morris pause in her ramblings about the city but she does not spend much capital thinking about them before she is advised by the British Consul to Prodigal Prince Charming leave the city in hasteMorris ends Last Letters from Hav on a note of uncertainty withow flying war planes streaking over the city Morris sees warships on the near horizon as she pauses on an overlook near where she will abandon her vehicle and catch a train away from

followed by Hav of the Myrmidons a seuel published twenty yearsater I will speak of them separatelyLAST LETTERS FROM HAVThey say that Hav is not real that there is no city no country named Hav True travel agents have been asked and ingloriously failed to get folks there And the author s descriptions and such maps as she provides are well wanting It is close by Montenegro we know that for sure but we can t say precisely what it abuts There are sea routes to Greece train services to Moscow Yet you won t find it on a map Google Siri Alexa they can all tell you who put the bomp in the bomp bah

Korsakov wrote Scheherazade Hitler s uick visit he never His Pregnant Christmas Princess left his touring car is thought to be apocryphal The minarets might make you think of Istanbul but there are clearly Western influences and Asian too It is a place where every religion seems to dominate yet Hav is not religious they sayToo much you say to believe As if Hav is some invented microcosm of history geography biography The author herself called Hav a jumble and a hazy allegory Aren t all allegories hazy I askA repository I d call it As I am They say that Hav is not real They say that but I don t believe that Because there was this Tramp steamers of a kind still come and perhaps bring poets sometimeThe tramp steamers are vague of distinction and improbable of cargo I know that s true And if indeed tramp steamers come then there is a good chance a friend will be there high on the mast aookout If he does not perhaps bring a poem he will instead bring his prayer And that is real enough for meHAV OF THE MYRMIDONSJan Morris modestly claiming no prescience wrote that the brooding sense of foreboding in her Last Letters from Hav erupted into catastrophe on September 11 2001 Okay maybe not so modestly Last Letters does have a kind of cataclysmic ending Hazy though And so a seuel Which by the way didn t Airplane II Caddyshack II and Dumb and Dumber to teach us anything Hav of the Myrmidons moves us into Dystopia Morris misses the old ways even imagined ones She paints a bleak picture which of course is not unusual in dystopian art The to my eyes architecturally beautiful House of the Chinese Master of the first book is destroyed replaced by The Myrmidonic Tower of the second book The Tower TOWER is monolithic very high with a giant M on top maybe for Myrmidon maybe for Monsanto Morris says Regardless it is a gaudy symbol for both power and plasticity And what of the new Hav really The facts are that there are no facts Facts are factotum in the new Hav Facts are faxes Faxes are facts Fair blows the fact on summer eve and fierce the mountains fart There s a ot to be said for the Republic It s certainly better than what came before You may uestion the taste but you can t deny the speed and efficiency of the recovery Hav is certainly richer than it was before and much better ordered What we object to is this that it s all based upon iesSome of you will no doubt say that Morris in 2006 had not ost based upon iesSome of you will no doubt say that Morris in 2006 had not ost of her prescienceSo is Hav real after all I don t know I thought it was but now I

I read once that Michael Chabon received many One Part Woman letters from people claiming to have been to Sitka the imaginary Jewish Alaskan setting of his much acclaimed The Yiddish Policemen s Union Apparently the same thing happened to Jan Morris the creator of the mysterious port city of Hav Supposedly a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society asked her to point it out on a map I m not surprised the first portion of this book especially is strongly reminiscent of Janet Flanner s dispatches from ParisI adored the first book in this omnibus Last Letters from Hav It establishes Hav as a marvelously real feelingocale While the story ends in a way that feels Stranger like an ending the reader iseft with a marvelous feeling of uncertaintyMorris waited two decades and change to write a followup Hav of the Myrmidons In a way it is a coda to the previous volume than a full book per se It reminded me of Cyteen in places the narrator racketing around coming up against secrets that no one wants to speak about unexpected Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis limits toibertyIf you have read the afterword to the trade paperback edition of China Mieville s The City The City then you will understand why he says that his book is in dialogue with Hav Especially if you are aware of his politics insofar as I understand them I can see why it would rub him the wrong waySpeaking of Jan Morris can really write There is not much action in this book and it is often hard to keep the characters in check especially over the span of two separate books but the evel of writing is so high that none of that mattersMoreover I really enjoyed the allegorical implications of the book First as a node of mittle Mondial I made that up mid 20th century history and culture Russian aristocrats waxing nostlagic English colonialism uietly ending religions bubbling together while mysterious fanatical cults worship underground and capitalism slowly pushes aside the cultural specificities which usually make a travelogue The atter theme is the focus of Return of the Myrmidons a scathing description of the speed and uniformity that globalism envelopes economies politics and culture in even isolated The English Spy (Gabriel Allon, locales perhaps e A book that I feel was written essentially for me Not in the sense of an upheaval ing personal revelation but one that deals with my adoration of esoterica of ongoing multicultural melting of people and ideas both modern and ancient I think the first seuence of the story Last Letters from Hav is the successful piece of writing The second Hav of the Myrmidons is fascinating but feels aittle To See Paris and Die lessovingly thought over In any case it s an extremely fascinating study of the collective consciousness of the city and the author clearly understands the creeping dread of gentrifying forces in favor of anarcho Out of China libertarian pastiche Here you find traces of Dubai Brooklyn or SirteSmall aside 1 As a fictional place did anyone try to triangulate the physical and conceptualocation of Hav from all of its cobbled descriptions Did you come up with the Republic of Hatay and AntiochSmall aside 2 There are a few editorial oversights that the editors should be advised to correct in Myrmidons Magda is at Mary Tudor least twice called Mazda a missing space a double period a period in place of a comma and instances of stray punctuation often enough to be noticeable This is actually two separate books Last Letters from Hav and its seuel Hav of the Myrmidons In them Jan Morris writes about an imaginary peninsula ajacent to Turkey that has a mixed population of Arabs Greeks Russians Chinese troglodytes the Kretevs and miscellaneous Europeans Readers of Hav have been so befuddled as to make travel inuiriesA brilliant travel writerike Jan Morris can easily confuse the reader Her picture of the old Hav is so appealing and the picture of the draconian changes after the Intervention which Morris flees in the first part and returns to twenty years ater so realistic that the two books together can stand in for almost any small diverse countryAlthough the Hav books are fiction they can almost be read of the changes that are sweeping through the Eastern Mediterranean and other places due to politics and religion and the politics of religion Originally published at wwwbookslutcomWilliam Gibson writes of a prose city a abyrinth a vast construct the reader The Accidental Tourist learns to enter by any one of a multiplicity of doors It turns there on the mind s horizon exerting its own peculiar gravity It is aiterary singularity This city seems to exist outside of time yet moves within it One can never be sureGibson was writing about the fictional city of Bellona from Samuel R Delany s Dhalgren yet his words apply eually if not So To Another Fictional to another fictional that of Hav the singular creation of the renowned and prolific Welsh travel writer historian and novelist Jan MorrisMorris brought Hav into the world in 1985 as Last Letters From Hav short isted for that year s Man Booker Prize She returned to Hav in 2006 with Hav of the Myrmidons a single volume with a reprinting of the original Last Letters which was a finalist for the 2007 Arthur C Clarke Award Now the New York Review of Booksis bringing that combined volume to American readers under its Classics imprintHav is a work of fiction unlike any other I ve read Narrated by the character Jan Morris Hav unfolds entirely as a travel narrative as seemingly veridical as anything Paul Theroux or Lawrence Durrell would pen In fact upon its publication readers overwhelmed Morris inuiring where exactly Hav could be found how to get there whether a visa was necessary or not Even the Royal Geographical Society wanted to know according to Morris s epilogueAccordingly the novel begins with Morris s arrival in Hav itself hazily ocated somewhere on the eastern Mediterranean She explores the city a register of millennia of human history founded by migratory Celtic tribes or ancient Ionians perhaps by Achilles himself Conuered in turn by Arabs who held it until the Crusades intervened for a century it served as the fulcrum of the Silk Road for four hundred years at which point it passed into the hands of the Seljuk Turks the British Empire for a short time the Russian Empire until the Revolution and a Tripartite Mandate of France Italy and Germany between the warsIts onetime visitors and residents represent a veritable who s who of world history and culture Ibn Battuta Hemingway Diaghilev and Nijinsky Mann Freud Cavafy Churchill Joyce maybe Hitler though that s far from certain Every faith has a place here from the Grand Mosue of Malik in the Medina to the Greek Orthodox church on the small island of San Spiridon to scattered Buddhist and Hindu temples a synagogue and churches of every Christian sectThe reader follows Morris as she tries to navigate this unreal city with its multifarious architectural styles Babel of anguages reader follows Morris as she tries to navigate this unreal city with its multifarious architectural styles Babel of anguages Collected Poems lange of smells and sounds She familiarizes herself with its cafes its music its trademark urchin soup and snow raspberries She attends the Roof Race which is exactly what it soundsike and her descriptions of the frenzy of the crowd tearing through the city to follow the athletes running and jumping across alleyways above is among the riveting parts of the novelOne could go on for some ength and is tempted to for Morris s prose is so resplendent and exacting in its erudition and craftsmanship Her knowledge of Mediterranean history and culture shines through on every page and her attention to seemingly minor details such as witnessing two elderly Buddhist monks alone in a crowd of merchants purchasing saffron for instance preserve the veneer of an official travel narrativeUltimately though Hav is a place utterly fluid where identity is consistent only in its Heraclitean flux History swirls around Hav yet always inchoate subject to the whims distortions and sedimented agendas of countless peoples of countless factions over countless years And ike that other fictional city Bellona Hav is a mystery in which nothing is as it seems or maybe everything is exactly as it seems until it changes into something else until over time everything possible in human history has already happened is Still Happening And Will happening and will again Last Letters from Hav indeed ends with a cataclysm known as the Intervention the details of which the reader is never entirely informedOne is reminded of Borges s The Library of Babel and Borges s ghost clearly walks.
