Start your review of This Brutal House. Jun 24, Eric Anderson rated it it was amazing. I think the best novels say as much in their form as well as in their content.

For years these mothers housed many queer children who were forced to leave the homes of their biological families. Govinden invokes their collective voice to capture the tenor and sweep of their emotions and experiences. But he also relates the story of Teddy, a child from these drag houses who now works in City Hall and is caught between these two very different social spheres. Oct 29, Laura rated it really liked it. This Brutal House, Niven Govinden's fifth novel, moves between three distinctive voices.

First, the collective protest of five drag queens, or the 'Mothers' as they refer to themselves, who are sitting silently on the steps of New York's City Hall to mark the disappearances of a number of their children; the Mothers took these queer children in when nobody else would have them, and have tried to protect them ever since. Second, the voice of the 'vogue caller', the narrator at vogue balls who tel This Brutal House, Niven Govinden's fifth novel, moves between three distinctive voices.

Second, the voice of the 'vogue caller', the narrator at vogue balls who tells the queens to 'work it', to 'walk', to 'be nothing less than tens'.

Third, the more traditional third-person narration of Teddy, who is now an adult but who was once one of the Mothers' children, and who is both loyal and conflicted about their legacy; he's already lied to them about the fate of one of their Children, trans girl Sherry, because he wanted to support the narrative they're telling themselves; his own experience with them had elements of both affirmation and constant competition.

This story has things to say about queer legacies, about the fears of the ageing queens who want to leave something behind, but also about how children don't always rebel in the ways that rebellious elders want them to.

The Mothers' collective narration is strongly evocative, but I found that Govindan's stylised prose didn't work so well when he's telling Teddy's story.

Teddy's complex relationship to the Mothers is thoughtfully handled, and Govinden is strong on vignette - an encounter between Teddy and an older woman of colour in a Chanel store is memorable. However, the non-naturalistic dialogue that's effective in certain sections of this book lets Govinden down when he's trying to make Teddy's world come to life, with characters sounding stilted: "Don't be so old fashioned, kid!

You're standing in the middle of the greatest city of the world where anything can happen. Nevertheless, this novel could have been more powerful if it had been less constrained by its own form. I received a free proof copy of this novel from the publisher for review. Jun 10, Rosie Collinson rated it really liked it. Category is Vogue Ball Realness!

You have the voice of The Mothers, hardened old time legends and pioneers of the balls, aged but still fighting the fight for the children, protesting for the life they made and lives to come. Then we have the vogue callers, the ring masters of the balls, the puppeteers of entrainment, they paint the night. Feb 19, Erik rated it did not like it Shelves: lgbt , poc-authored.

Thrust into a protest on the steps of City Hall by the Mothers of the famous NYC ballroom houses, a frazzled story unfolds following Teddy, a former child of a House, who grew up, went to college, and began working in City Hall - offering help to his Mothers as they silently protest the inaction of the City as queer and trans people of color go missing, are killed, and forgotten.

With flashbacks and experimental form, the novel talks about the ballroom scene and the dangers faced by black trans women. Unfortunately, Govinden's writing got in the way of a potentially important story. Absent any character development and an attempt at minimalist plot, had the author spent more time developing plot and character and less time using a thesaurus to write in the most obscenely opaque prose imaginable, this book might have been readable.

Instead, the book dragged, leaving me unable to connect with anything in the story, leaving me confused at many point about what was happening many of the chapters are written in just dialogue - without even identifying characters. A plotless, nearly-characterless book with overwritten prose, this book is definitely one to skip.

Govinden does a lot of exciting things with the structure of this novel if it can even be considered that with some working more than others. My favourite parts were definitely the Teddy chapters the part at the Channel store was absolutely brilliant and heartbreaking. It's a very thought provoking work, re A very ballsy work, that wastes no time explaining anything about the ball culture and instead generously gives space for the voice of a marginalised community that is rarely being heard.

It's a very thought provoking work, reminding me of the real life story of Marsha P. Johnson and Paris is Burning. My only complaint is that I wish the story was more concrete. Much of the novel is written in a plural first person narration that almost ventures into stream of consciousness territory, giving us the backbones of the story, with the most interesting elements and the things I wanted to know more about falling through the cracks.

Mar 11, James Hewkin rated it it was ok. This Boring House. It took me forever to finish this book because I kept falling asleep whenever I tried to get through a chunk of it. The subject matter should have been interesting, but it was told in such a way that everything felt drab, dreary and tedious. There are no characters or characterisation. It frequently lapses into silly ranting stream-of-consciousness nonsense. There are too many juvenile experimental ideas floating around for it to be taken seriously at all, which is a shame bec This Boring House.

There are too many juvenile experimental ideas floating around for it to be taken seriously at all, which is a shame because its a missed opportunity to learn about a rather fascinating subculture from recent decades whose influence is felt more strongly today than ever.

This story was a badly executed mess. If Niven Govinden were to come up with a bestselling novel that netted him the Booker, Pulitzer and Nobel prizes, I still wouldn't go near it after this. Jun 01, Charlotte rated it did not like it.

I had high hopes for this book: having read Niven Govinden's 'Black Bread, White Beer' a couple of years ago and been struck by his confident and alternative handling of a subject miscarriage so often portrayed from a mother's perspective.

However, sadly my expectations were dashed as I found 'This Brutal House' impenetrable.

The narrative is relayed in the plural first person of 'we' distancing the reader from individual personalities and experiences to the extent that I found it almost impossible to follow the story arc or understand the timeline as it shifts between the protest outside City Hall and the experiences of the men and the children they took into their care when all others turned away; "Any child who had the temerity to approach us in the street or at battles, whose hunger for what we served went beyond a passing interest, was adopted.

A battalion of dancers training for war. A drag army waiting to conquer. For this we expected obedience, and loyalty; and even when both were tested, we still opened our homes. However, for me, this novel failed to create the impact it intended. My thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for sharing an advance copy with me in return for an honest review.

The story is based in New York City and features people who compete in Vogue Balls for money and kudos amongst peers. Opening on the steps of City Hall, five elders and mothers are beginning a silent protest at the inaction of the authorities in locating their children who have gone missing.

Through his access to official records he now knows more about what happened to some of his missing siblings. He has not shared these truths with the mothers, wishing to protect them as they once offered him a home. The mothers are not blood mothers but rather men who take in children needing shelter and who they may then enter in the Vogue Balls. Additional funds are raised by offering sexual favours. Although groomed by the mothers, the children are willing participants.

Those who do not wish to dress up in drag and dance can help out in cloakrooms or take on other supporting roles. The children live with the mothers having been rejected elsewhere.
