Download We Others New and Selected Stories ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free “Every reader knows of writers who are like secrets one wants to keep and whose books one wants to tell the world about Millhauser is mine” David Rollow Boston Sunday GlobeFrom the Pulitzer Prize–winning author the essential stories across three decades that showcase his indomitable imaginationSteven Millhauser’s fiction has consistently and to dazzling effect dissolved the boundaries. My first brush with Millhauser He writes with such exuisite precision I almost have the sense that he holds each phrase up to the light turning it back and forth to look at it from all directions then wielding it to refashion even the most mundane tale into something fanciful thought provoking sympathetic troubling He makes us remember what it felt like to think profound thoughts when we were still too young to understand them fully Then through his mature eyes he forces us to revisit our very adult feelings of confusion and puzzlement He weaves fantasy and reality into such an intricate brocade that we must sometimes stop and look closely at the weft to see where one thread ends and another begins This collection of stories was the perfect introduction to his style and range I ll be reading The Heiress In His Bed young to understand them fully Then through his mature eyes he forces us to revisit our very adult feelings of confusion and puzzlement He weaves fantasy and reality into such an intricate brocade that we must sometimes stop and look closely at the weft to see where one thread ends and another begins This collection of stories was the perfect introduction to his style and range I ll be reading

Download We Others New and Selected Stories ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Between reality and fantasy waking life and dreams the past and the future darkness and light love and lust The stories gathered here unfurl in settings as disparate as nineteenth century Vienna a contemporary Connecticut town the corridors of a monstrous museum and Thomas Edison’s laboratory and they are inhabited by a wide ranging cast of characters including a knife thrower and teenage bo. Here s something I admire Millhauser s singularity of purpose thematically He has a few basic obsessions illusion v reality the way words distort or mask perception and the ways our identities can be disturbed by an uncanny element within the everyday and he explores them in a bunch of different ways Also his writing is extremely evocative on a sensory level At his best he is brilliant at his worst he is working towards something new but not uite there yetSo yes there is some sense of repetition when you read this volume start to finish But there are two exciting things there first it is possible for even a Pulitzer winner to just keep getting better The Slap White Glove Next Thing are among the best he s done second he has staked out an individual territory a Millhauser land that nobody else really inhabits and that I ll be excited to return to from now on
