    PDF tyrakel.de ☆ Bark PDF/EPUB µ bark epub, Bark PDF/EPUBDid something bad happen to Lorrie Moore? I don't need to read things that are uplifting I am not set on having characters that are likable But this collection was so dark it left me feeling kind of horrible This is a collection of stories that looked into the crawl space to find what was rotting there figuratively and in one story in this book literally I might suggest that if you read this collection you should consider skipping the half page after the flashlight is presented and the crawl space opened I'm afraid it might give me nightmaresConcern with America's current wars runs through these stories and I guess that might be what happened to Moore Late in the book there's a discussion about Abu Ghraib and that's as horrifying as the thing found in the crawl space And there's definitely an ongoing look at marriage how men and women can fail each other

    PDF tyrakel.de ☆ Bark PDF/EPUB µ bark epub, Bark PDF/EPUBHoly smokes Lorrie Moore is brilliant and sharp and as cutting as broken glass I do not like short stories one bit but darned if I didn't love these ones In fact I enjoyed the audio narrated by Moore herself so much that I'm going to buy a hard copy to go back over and enjoyThis collection is about various characters in their middle age with each having a date or spouse or significant other in the story with them There is a sadness and disappointment in some of them but not all but there are so many goofy little plays on words that I found myself smiling throughout She writes scenes of despondency and hilarity with eual skill bikers who are hired to break up a wedding end up going to the wrong nuptials and a man leaves his woman friend after 8 years because he cannot handle her schizophrenic son despite the boy viewing him as his only fatherThere is witty commentary about the placement of a billboard advertis

    PDF tyrakel.de ☆ Bark PDF/EPUB µ bark epub, Bark PDF/EPUBI recently read a uote by Stephen King on the art of writing the short story From memory it went something like thisshort stories are harder to write than a novel You have to take the direct route no side streets no stopping to chat And he is rightI am ambivalent about these stories a few seemed to me to have little or no point to them Others I enjoyed immenselyBroadly these stories are about human relationships and idiosyncrasies How the things we love in a person can over time become irritating as in familiarity breeds contempt; how we can think we are in accord with another person but are actually at opposite ends of the

    PDF tyrakel.de ☆ Bark PDF/EPUB µ bark epub, Bark PDF/EPUBThis is a super short book of short stories that felt than anything like a hard drive dump It's like the publisher said How many have you got? and Moore said 8 or so but some of them are pretty old and the publisher said I can work with that send them over and thus we have a book That's not to say there aren't nuggets of pure Moore brilliance in this book There are many She's a great writer and she can hit the nail suarely on the head How could someone have come so close to death so unfairly so painfully and heroically and how could he still want to strangle them? on a cocktail party conversationThis book

    PDF tyrakel.de ☆ Bark PDF/EPUB µ bark epub, Bark PDF/EPUBWhen I was studying for my MFA in Creative Writing which is longer ago than I want to remember Lorrie Moore was the golden goddess whose prose and sensibility almost every fiction grad student wanted to emulate We prostrated ourselves before her devastating humor her effortless wordplay her skewering of every late 20th century pretension Once when I met her at a reading I think I freaked her out by being too adoring Most writers would have been thrilled but Moore is not most writers A couple of decades on my impression is that Moore's writing has not grown as much as it could have Maybe that's because she's devoted a lot of energy to teaching other writers it's hard to be a really dedicated teacher AND top of your game practitioner 'Bark' her new collection of stories has some of her trademark brilliance but overall feels a

    PDF tyrakel.de ☆ Bark PDF/EPUB µ bark epub, Bark PDF/EPUB The cover of the issue in which the book's title story Debarking first appeared A while ago I read a review of Lorrie Moore's Bark that intrigued me There was something about her short stories being populated with extraterrestrials I must have thought there would be a touch of sci fi Maybe there is but not in the sense that I was thinking Some of the characters are almost reptilian with other characters caught in their clutches The word extraterrestrial actually is used twice Well only once in reference to the dialogue between a parent a divorced parent and her single teenaged offspring The other time it was space alien and that was how a woman saw her soon to leave
