PDF or EBOOK [Reasons to Live]

Das Schwert der Totengöttin dHempel says with one sentence than most authors say with a whole novelIf you miss a sentence you can get lost and have to backtrack That s minimalism for you Standout pieces in the collection include Beg Sl Tog Inc Cont Rep The Man in Bogot and Tonight is a Favor to Holly Not every story is great though In fact some areownright awful I got nervous when I initially bought the collection and found the first story In a Tub so lackluster Still I appreciate that Reasons to Live has enough risk in it to where it can miss the mark Maybe that s what makes a five star book that you even appreciate its flaws I can t say all that makes a five star book but I know that with Amy Hempel I was simultaneously glad and The Algorithmic Beauty of Seaweeds Sponges and Corals disappointed when she got popular Glad because she reallyoes Black Love Signs : An Astrological Guide to Passion, Romance and Relationships for African Americans (aka Sexy Black Sun Signs: An Astrological Guide to Love and Romance for African-Americans) deserve it and there are too many great stories that go unnoticed next to some blas fiction writer s latest rehash yetisappointed because there are some things that you wish could stay yours even if that s ridiculous since they never were yours to begin with You Manipulation and Dark Psychology don t loan a five star book to just anyone You can t risk that I had to learn that the hard way Though Amy Hempel s other collections are still very good they note the slowownhill slide from Reasons to Live and with the exception of the now out of print At the Gates of the Animal Kingdom I Women's Activism and Social Change Rochester New York 1822 1872 don t feel compelled to look for them at used bookstores Whatever euates to a five star book Reasons to Live is it for me The Wall Street Journal said of this One of theelights of these stories is that they approach the usual cliches of real life and fiction at an unexpected obliue angel I couldn t say it better if I tried There s so many reasons to live but Hempel reminds you of one major one which is to read work like this I read somewhere that if you want to become a good writer read Amy HempelThe reason is that she is not only a minimalist but also because she is an intelligent short story writer This is true I The Western Scar: The Theme of the Been-To in West African Fiction don t have a plan to write because I am still busy with my corporate career Maybe someday who knows Right now though I am reading because I enjoy knowing the lives of other people the situations they are into and I appreciate good writing styles Seeingifferent techniues in writing you know the possibilities never fails to amuse me Hempel s short stories are like Raymond Carver s sliced into small bits and pieces and those bits and pieces still tell stories that can even be better than Carver sYou have to read slowly though Reading Hempel is like pausing after each sentence because each sentence is like a piece of jigsaw puzzle You have to take note all the edges and its possible connection how each edge can possibly fit into the others laid on the table How a sentence can mean to others you ve already read and those that you will still readThey say that the most anthologized story in this book Hempel s first is this In the Cemetery Where Al Jolson is Buried I even had to look up who was Al Jolson before writing this review but I guess I missed the whole point so I Understanding Shutter Speed did not really enjoy it The ones that I enjoyed are In a Tub the first story San Francisco this is puzzling and Beg Sl Tog Inc Cont Rep if you wonder what are these youon t know about knitting This book The Mother I Carry: A Memoir of Healing from Emotional Abuse does not make me relate to any of the stories nor characters However it made me really think as you have to think whileoing the jigsaw puzzle Each piece each sentence each word counts and you won t appreciate the story if you miss any of thoseBrilliantly written Hempel is a league of her own A spare collection of fifteen short stories Reasons to Live considers what it means to live an unconventional life With wit and ingenuity Hempel explores a wide array of isuieting themes from the listlessness explores a wide array of isuieting themes from the listlessness an aimless adulthood to the read provoked by A Close Friend S close friend s Across all the swift tales the author fully renders the complex interior lives of her narrators in succinct language full of mesmerizing imagery Hempel s cool aesthetic is efined by understatement irony and collage her lucid prose makes for a jarring contrast with her elliptical plots just as her penchant for emotional reticence clashes with her painful subject matter Favorite stories include Tonight Is a Favor for Holly In the Cemetery Where Al Jonson Lives and Why I m Here A fine book of short stories The shorter pieces are spare and elliptical sort of like Raymond Carver but without the self estructive power But the better longer pieces Nashville Gone to Ashes In The Cemetery Where Al Jolson is Buried Today Will Be a uiet Day are excellent In their classical restrained eeply human way they remind me of Tillie Olsen at her best and that is high praise indee.

Dog is about a maid concerned with cleaning a carpet stain Today Will Be a uiet Day accompanies a father and his children on car ride There are no grand adventures amongst these uiet stories In fact they might even be mundane if not for the potent human and emotional undercurrents that whisper at the reader from between the lines While everyday commonalities take precedent on Hempel s printed page her stories work to coax and seduce profound revelations within the reader s mind and it is these revelations that form the real substance of Hempel s work It s as if she s softly tickling her reader s subconscious light fingers tapping to awaken a profound consciousness ofeath and tragedy and the human condition The wonder of these powerful revelations is that the author unearths them with such subtlety in so few words and so few pages Hempel s much acclaimed and much anthologized In the Cemetery Where Al Jolson is Buried is found amongst the stories here and for this story alone this book is worth reading Slowly The plot revolves around the narrator s visit to the hospital where her friend is Morning by Morning: How We Home-Schooled Our African-American Sons to the Ivy League
