is a lack of a different voice for each of them the absence of narrative distinction makes all character morph On the Edge (Dublin Nights, into one and sound like the author s vision of them The second biggest complaint which for many readers can be a dealbreaker are the non endings most of the stories Snakewood in the collection simply end without a resolution 88 Poems in medias res It s particularly visible Relatos íntimos in stories such as Out to Sea which The Sea Devil: The Adventures of Count Felix Von Luckner, the Last Raider Under Sail is one of the few that don t feature any surreal elements at all Out to Sea The Ultimate Resource is the story of Sawtooth a grumpy old man slowly turning to rust The Chronicles of Little Nicholas in a Florida home for the elderly and Augie a much younger girl who visits him as a part of her court sentence and with whom he slowly became obsessed Sawtooth El enigma del laberinto perdido ignores that the girl obviously doesn t care for him steals his pills and only hangs around because she has a 50 hour sentence to serve In just a few pages we see an unlikely but moving transformation as for probably the first time Josef Muller-Brockmann in his life Sawtooth begins to feel something for another human being and we want to see what will happen and then Secretos de una bruja celta (Obras De Referencia - Extramuros) it just ends without a real resolution or the characters learning anything I know that Pintoricchio include any real polemic on the whole range of human emotions but come on Such a wasted opportunityI m happy to say that Karen s second collection Vampires Il cubo di Rubik. Seguito da un algoritmo per riordinare il cubo in the Lemon Grove Tejo is a definite La noble maison improvement and a brilliant volume full of self contained little gems And that s the one I d recommend I think that readers seeking Speculative Japan imaginative and creative fiction should read Karen Russel She s great I m looking forward to reading her novel Swamplandia and eagerly await her future stories

Agedies is sent to 'Sleepaway Camp for Disordered Dreamers' Cabin 1 Narcoleptics; Cabin 2 Insomniacs; Cabin 3 Somnambulists; a Minotaur leads his family on the trail out West and finally in the collection's poignant and hilarious title story fifteen girls raised by wolves are painst. This collection of short stories was uite good I m awful at writing reviews for short story collections mostly because I m too lazy or forgetful to jot down notes about the individual stories when I finish them so the entire collection sort of becomes jumbled up in my head These kind of fall into the George Saunders like style of writing weird slightly off kilter distortions of the real world but unlike some of the George Saunders esue writers out there is never the feeling that Karen Russell is trying to be weird for weird s sake I think some of this has to do with her really great use of voice for the characters and the development of the characters It would seem to me to be really easy when writing stories like this to get all caught up in the strange setting and then just hoping that the setting and plot will make for an interesting story In uite a few of the stories she writes really convincingly as a teenage boy actually so convincingly that about half way through the book I started to assume that most of the first person narrators would be boys until proven otherwise this is something that I don t think I normally do with stories written by women I know that Lit Crit 101 tells you not to but in this day and age especially with young writers damn her for being so much younger than me first person is usually a giant flag of hey this is sort of me the author airing myself out for you all to see but with enough of an ironical wink and nudge to put a little bit of fictional narrative distance between myself and the story Another aspect of the stories I found myself enjoying was the would sometimes border on being perverse or shocking but never actually cross the line This created a nice creepy undercurrent to some of the stories which would have been destroyed if she had allowed herself to write explicitly This also kind of helped add to the unknown that floats around us as children since many of the narrators are children where there are things that you have the feeling are not uite right or dirty but unable to really fill in the pieces does that make sense to anyone else but me Again this is a very good thing and her being a young writer it s nice to see that she just take the relatively easy way of being shocking because she can I m looking forward to reading her novel which sounds like it s an expansion on this collections first story
