Sieben Jahre in Tibet hSs we read we observe and only at the end do we feel uneasy as what we ve read sinks in and spreads out Jaeggy somehow manages to makeer readers complicit without giving us a chance to know uite what it is we re condoning Her work is unsettling for that reason and that s also why I recommend it In these short stories some only a few pages long Jaeggy proves Operaatio Para Bellum herself to be a poet of despair She writes in one story Creation can be an act of destruction and that feels like a good tagline for many of these stories There is a muted violence in them suicides and murders but all smothered under a blanket of mute suffering A young man who felt loved only byis sister but nevertheless believes she used Horse a Portrait A Photographer's Life With Horses him foris drama kills Aircraft of World War I 1914 1918 The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide himself An orphan taken in by an elderly woman burnser alive Despite the intense drama there is a curious lack of feeling in these stories Brief even terse they are moments that contain lifetimes It s amazing Myth Taken Identity how much story Jaeggy apparently effortlessly compacts into a few pagesThe writer is apparently something of a recluse Sheas The Underwater Photographer eBook: Martin Edge: Kindle Store had few friends that she speaks of other than the famous writer beloved by me Ingeborg Bachmann who is a featured player in the last story of the collection a writer who needs little encouragement not to speakSadly I can onl Reading Fleur Jaeggy for the first time after a couple of mediocre litfic novels was likeaving a glass of ice cold water thrown in my face on a ot day Invigorating refreshing and something of a relief if not exactly what you would describe as pleasantJaeggy writes in staccato sentences and writes of the indistinctly strange Her prose is the kind that forces you to sit up straight and pay attention A single paragraph can contain so much that you will needwant to read it five times before moving on to the next This is partly because details sometimes seem to be mentioned randomly or related in the wrong order but read again and it will become clear every word is placed deliberately With unnerving precisionThis collection reads like a classic a book that could just ave easily been written in the 19th century as today Something about it put me in mind of Arthur Koestler s Darkness at Noon though I couldn t uite tell you what Some of Jaeggy s premises such as that of the sinister The Aviary a ueasy story which culminates in a young man imprisoning The Jane Austen Project his wife in a birdcage reminded me of The Doll s Alphabet by Camilla GrudovaIn the second story Negde Iighlighted a sentence because I loved it but now I come to look at it again I realise it s also a perfect description of the book itself There is calm a vague stealthy disuietude some void I can t stop thinking about that phrase some void How perfect is that You need to be prepared to grapple with some void in order to read Jaeggy You will navigate eerie stasis and sense Dynamite Doc or Christmas Dad?

eerie maleficent calm a brutal calm and recognize the timbre of a writer for whom a gothic world seethes with uiet violence JimZ I don t reckon an orphan immolating an aristocrat as uiet violence but maybe I am splittingairs I Am the brother of XX is twisted and Dien Cai Dau Wesleyan Poetry hypnotizing and somehow downright lovely Reading it is not unlike diving naked andeadlong into a bramble of black thorn bushes so intrigued you are by their beauty it s a swift prickly undertaking and you emerge the other end bloodied all over There are 21 stories in this collection I did not understand a number of themand others that were described as above were accurately describedI m sorry but the only positive thing I Hope Solo: My Story Young Readers' Edition have to say about this collection was that most of the stories were at most 6 8 pages and so the end was in sight for each of them to put me out of my misery You might ask why I continued to read it s just my style Plus I really likeder two other works that I uality Control in the Pharmaceutical Industry had read SS Proleterka and Sweet Days of Discipline and was the reason why I ordered this book as well as another collection ofer short stories Last Vanities I ll probably sit on that for a month So I can only give this collection 2 stars Stories that were good in my eyes difficult for me to define right now were I am the Brother of XX The Black Lace Veil Tropics But I am not sure you should go by what I say I just read the reviews see below and they are positive than Iso this could be what s not good for the goose is good for the gander Just a couple of notes I Bomb: The Race to Build--and Steal--the World's Most Dangerous Weapon (Newbery Honor Book) had to look up a couple of words Words perhaps you know lugubrious mournful gloomynot the first time I saw this wordI guess I keep on forgetting its meaning and mimetized imitative mimicry One story An Encounter in the Bronx involveser and the famous neurologist writer The Man who Mistook His Wife for a Hat Oliver Sacks at Oh Susannah hisouse in the Bronx and then eating at a restaurant I guess she knew Dr Sacks In another story last story of the

review of the book by none other than the translator Gini Alhadeff was written in Italian It s a very well written review about Pelé: The King of Soccer her editing Jaeggy s work ander writing style and personality Very good review about Jaeggy s oeuvre I m enchanted and disturbed This is a brief book of very short stories some only two pages There s no traditional sense of plot or character development I would call Chakras & Self-Care: Activate the Healing Power of Chakras with Everyday Rituals her style gothic minimalism It s the sense you get when you know you re all alone but you see something move swiftly from the corner of your eye Crystalline laconic sentences Death theology and the anxious paranoideart at the centre of all unhappy families Love in its contorted form deeply claustrophobic poisonous deadly Characters range from suspicious siblings to deranged The Unforgiven husbands to devoted 13th century mystics to a fish in a restaurant auarium It s the final story a loving tribute to Ingebord Bachmann stripped of all sentimentality that s light as air Her stories willaunt meMy full review appears Omgiven av idioter here 35 stars rounded up Not because the writing is flawed The writing is superb but does not suit my present mood it seems Not as compelling as the novels or the essay collection but these thematically linked micro fictions are well worth reading
