5.0 su 5 stelle Something here for everyone 20 agosto 2016
Di Sarah B - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

There's something in here for everyone, and I mean everyone: all styles and genres: litfic, horror, humor, sci-fi, you name it. This also means you probably won't like every story, but it's a meaty, worthwhile survey of what's out there today in terms of short fiction by women authors. Since many of the stories are flash (1,000 words or fewer), I'll only list a few of my favorites.

Also, there are a few stories with a lot of violence, and a few dystopic "this is a society in which women must all wear the proper butt implants to be 'matched'" stories that I tended to skip. If that's your thing, these stories are scattered throughout.

My favorites:

Joyce Carol Oates, "Spotted Hyenas: A Romance" One of the longer stories in the collection, and one of my favorites. Examines sex selection in humans as compared to hyenas in a beautiful, understated story--ironically, main character Mariana chooses to marry an alpha male who doesn't want kids, and who fails to protect her in the most important ways throughout their marriage. She's haunted (literally) by the choice she made.

Kathy Fish, "The Hollow": Kathy Fish is a revered name in flash--there's a fellowship in her name at the Smokelong Quarterly journal. I like her stories for their immediacy, for their ability to paint the universal through the minutely specific details. First line: "Afternoons, the girls play in the hollow. The heat buckles their energy and sweat drips into their eyes. Their mother works hard, but the girls are unkempt and secretive, given to a layered, sarcastic wit."

Rachel Swirsky, "The Sea of Trees"-Upmarket horror/suspense about Japan's suicide forest. (Yes, this is a real place with a real, sordid history). I loved the ghost-on-mortal "sex as grief and conflict" scenes.

Gwen Beatty, "Angel Thinks She Will Die Very Soon"-Edgy, plays with structure and time, unpredictably violent in the right ways. My cup of tea.

Meg Tuite, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner"- HILARIOUS story that serves as a commentary on what we commonly think of as clinically "crazy" as compared to the insanity that occurs around every Thanksgiving dinner table every year. Laughed out loud several times.

Mary Miller, "This Boy I Loved a Rock": "When I woke up this morning, I made my bed, which was worrisome." An absurdist, humorous, vulgar but poignant meditation on the death of love.

The last two stories, "Vampire" by Tina May Hall, and "Ms. Liberty Gets a Haircut" by Cat Rambo, are SO SO GOOD. Just, please read them. Admittedly, mothers may relate more strongly to "Vampire" and sci-fi lovers of humor and gender identity politics will get an especially huge kick out of Liberty.

I bought it because Joyce Carol Oates wrote a story in it. It was a great book of short stories which enabled me to read on my commute. It's a great collection of a diversity of stories!

Strange boring stories that I could not wait to finish. They just got weirder and less understandable. I would beg you not to waste your time or money.
