Field Study

Ided by an enemy in “The Crossing” to the old man weighing his regrets in “Francis John Jones 1924–” Seiffert’s acclaimed refined prose movingly captures the lives of her characters in their most essential secret moments. I m not a huge fan of short collections I prefer the novels This drew me with its mysterious cover and uniue title However I felt like some lacked a solid ending I was left really wanting and I never got the answers I was looking for in the stories

Rachel Seiffert author of The Dark Room powerfully evokes our need for human connection in this dazzling and haunting group of stories Set against immense political upheaval or evoking the intimate struggles between men and women pa. Thoughtful and touching stories written in a clear and straight forward style As in The Dark Room Seiffert lets the situation and the story speak for itself without recourse to unnecessary literary pyrotechnics or over reliance on pathos A few of these stories such as Dimitroff and Dog Leg Lane seem like novel extracts than self contained short stories the characters crying out for space narrative examination but I ve always felt that s a good thing in a short story The lives in the story don t begin and end there they have a past and a future that continues after the page is turned and so can live on in the reader s imagination She also avoids the surprise ending so beloved by short story theorists a gimmick that is surely beyond its best before date
