Mina Loy- that’s her on the book cover, invokes the image of a woman sitting against a wall with words, colorful words scattered all around her. Whether she would gather them in a notebook or splash them on an empty canvas to give some form to her whims is an act of that untranslatable artistic defiance that one can witness but can’t categorize under some conventional genre.

Mina Loy (born Mina Gertrude Löwy; 27 December 1882– 25 September . It is about the relationship between a German artist, Insel, and an art dealer, Mrs. Jones

Mina Loy (born Mina Gertrude Löwy; 27 December 1882– 25 September 1966), was a British artist, writer, poet, playwright, novelist, futurist, feminist, designer of lamps, and bohemian. She was one of the last of the first generation modernists to achieve posthumous recognition. Loy’s poetry was published in several magazines before being published in book form. The magazines that she was featured in include Camera Work, Trend and Rogue. Jones.

Insel, the only novel by the surrealist master Mina Loy, is a book like no other-about an impossible friendship amid the glamorous artistic bohemia of 1930s Paris.

As Elizabeth Arnold explains in her afterword, Insel is Loy’s prose-rendering of what transpired between those dates. Strung from a series of impossible happenings, furred with bizarre blooms and spasmodically fluctuating between revulsion and fascination, the story of Insel and Mrs. Jones is not a love story.

Mina Loy. On my throwing open a window, he hooked his arm round his neck, rubbing the mastoid. I have lain here for two whole days, he said, ferocious with dignity. ass German, his very existence an insolence, wearing a shirt from a cheap shop-Insel must have thrown himself away with his old black sweater above which his former face had risen like a worn, pocked moon. Unquestionably, I had cured him. Here was the normal man. An Insel unobsessed. Someone replacing himself, his mesmeric, melodic voice exchanged for a hostile creak.

The author of this roman a clef was an artist and a poet who lived in the creative ferment of Stein, TS Eliot, the Dadaists in Europe; as well as a being a New York gallery representative. In this novel she wrote of “Insel” her fictionalized husband. He is starving, manic and pimping two black Parisian women while making love to her. She is blind and projects her greatness of spirit onto him, including her abilities as a medium. “the drift of his words swept me together with the frozen drawing along a current of quiet reverence, expressing gratitude. As under his conjurative power of projecting images, I felt myself grow to the ruby proportions of a colossal beef steak.”

Halfway through the work, she realizes that part of his mysterious energetic affect on her is his drug addiction. The table turns... This is vivid, insightful, present and surrealistic writing.

The English translation of Insel's german conversational bits is embedded in the writing. Exposure to Surrealism and the language of mediums may clarify and increase appreciation.

Mina Loy might be a fine poet, but there's a very good reason why this novel wasn't published during her lifetime despite her numerous attempts: the writing is awful. There seems to be an amusing story about a nightmarish artistic mooch buried in the tortured prose, but unfortunately not amusing enough to warrant the effort of digging it out.

Engrossing fictional portrait of the strange marginal surrealist Richard Oelze as viewed through Mina Loy's friendship and scrutinizing curiosity of him.
