A haunting collection of 21 short stories the strongest of which evoke feelings of claustrophobia discontent nostalgia and sadness Jaeggy s stories center around some common themes family dysfunction personal losses traced across time and generations traces of staggering inhumanity embedded in history s arc In many of these stories time seems to exist in layers making it possible to see shadows of the past in the present In my favorite story in the collection Negde we follow Iosif Brodsky on a walk to the Promenade in Brooklyn Heights during which he moves from Brooklyn to St Petersburg and time moves from across the 20th century to the 21st century They saw them burning from the Promenade s uiet zone They witnessed the destruction They were there the spectators they saw them burn reflected in the water The windows seemed to reawaken Fire on the bay Iosif may know that they are no longer there The two towers are missing There in front of the Promenade The glint of evil They left grief and an abyss that are not wiped away by a hand or by words Iosif revisited the Neva then turned back Elsewhere a night without shadows in the month of May he wrote by that light The light was clear rosy faint Now he writes in the dark All he needs is a sheet of paper and ink as long as darkness lasts Every place is to him a mental city called Negde which in Russian means nowhere And Iosif would go nowhere so as to breathe A volume recommended for its revealing Jaeggy s ability to evoke so much pain and longing in so few words Wytchfire The Dragonkin Trilogy #1 zone They witnessed the destruction They were there the spectators they saw them burn reflected in the water The windows seemed to reawaken Fire on the bay Iosif may know that they are no longer there The two towers are missing There in front of the Promenade The glint of evil They left grief and an abyss that are not wiped away by a hand or by words Iosif revisited the Neva then turned back Elsewhere a night without shadows in the month of May he wrote by that light The light was clear rosy faint Now he writes in the dark All he needs is a sheet of paper and ink as long as darkness lasts Every place is to him a mental city called Negde which in Russian means nowhere And Iosif would go nowhere so as to breathe A volume recommended for its revealing Jaeggy s ability to evoke so much pain and longing in so few words

This is something of a it s not you it s me review as Fleur Jaeggy is clearly a wonderful talented writer but this type of abstract short story isn t really to my taste indeed had it not come as part of my And Other Stories subscription a publisher I am proud to support it is a book I would have been unlikely to readSo despite the two star review an author I would still recommend to others Rather than my review below I would instead direct the reader to1 One of my favourite stories in the collection Perfect Choice which is available in full on the Granta website as a way to sample her work A review by someone far erudite and better able to appreciate the book than me from Joseph s review captures the experience of reading Jaeggy s contradictory style brilliantlyThere is an unmistakable current of brisk melancholic foreboding that courses beneath the surface of her prose The chill can make you shudder the stark beauty of her terse sentences catch your breath Atmospheric Disconcerting And strangely alluring It is a rare author who manages to sustain an emotionally intense voice that is at once distinct abstracted and tightly restrained Jaeggy herself is a fascinating writer and well connected in literary circles with eg Thomas Bernhard Italo Calvino Ingeborg Bachmann a strong friend and Roberto Calasso who she married But she has a Ferrante like attitude to the role of the author in the interpretation of her work once published as in this interview Silence is omnipresent in your work it s the dense cohesive medium of your stories like highly leaded glass In your stories pervasive uietness is often cruel brutal A breeding ground for violence and creativity FJ I believe you can almost write without me Once I have finished a book it doesn t count any I don t want anything to do with it any A little idea occurs to me now about ten years ago I was in Germany near Berlin for a few months and there I had a good friend a swan His name was Erich I called him from my window Erich Erich And he came We took long walks together This swan is very important to me There were other people around but he knew when I would get up and he would come out of the water to see me One time someone in the park asked me Is this your swan In the winter he swam under the ice Certain images reoccur in the collection eg she is oddly fond of swamp green as a colour of choice for clothes Another was flowers particularly purple orchids mentioned in three stories the uotes below giving a good feel for her work The walls of the room are bare white and harsh Bald A sort of baldness adorns her rooms On the bedside table is a little bell that hasn t been used for years now In the corner of the room a bouuet Regula prefers a bouuet to a bunch of flowers About certain words she has prejudices They are variegated orchids minuscule tattooed humid Who were they once What were there intentions when they grew hidden in ravines and shadows Once there were pictures on the walls Regula can no longer bear to see art hanging on the walls The Gentleman and the Lizard I bought little orchid plants They came from Holland From South America I had seen them in the Mediterranean Growing in the damp White with purple eyelets Rosy pale an evil expression Acidulous Yellow They last a long time Not much earth Not much nourishment They reawaken in the dark at night Avid for company When they wilt they become small skulls in tuxedos Tiny night birds They look at me I look at them Agnes There was absolute stillness An enamel landscape innocuous mute And he the boy felt so well in the shadowy peace In the light malaise in the air The flush of spring the scent was nauseating tainted and too strong The solemn and glorious instant just before dissolution In a field he saw flowers with small purple wounds Tattooed flowers A minuscule branding such as is used on herds or linens Someone must have marked them as they went by But who He didn t care The flowers were coming back before his eyes before his door He had shut them out When the vision faded he saw the wall He opened the doorThe mother was there holding a tray I made you some dinner Shellfish and something pink boiled and grey with two holes His mother liked foods he couldn t stand Such as fish for instance No one could deceive him as to freshness There are those who have an inborn gift for not being deceived in life Neither by food gone bad nor by the Holy Ghost She was pleased if the butcher gave her a beautiful cut of meat And so in the end she was pleased with the death of her son With the perfect choice Understanding and charity begin in the mother s womb On the Via Mala Perfect ChoiceIn another story Cat she links how cats behave when toying with their kill to a style of writing which she ascribes to de uincey but would serve as a review for her own workOn reaching the target a cat suddenly becomes distracted Animal behaviourists call this movement bersprung It happens just before the deadly blow as though he had forgotten the fluttering wings that only moments earlier had inspired his total dedication That which had possessed him before as thought it were an idea a thought maybe this bersprung is a delectatio morosa A melancholic doing away with any connection to the victim bersprung a word that involves us too It is a turning away going on to something else manfacturing a gesture of detachment like a goodbye Wandering from the theme escaping from a word at once hunting for words and doing away with them these are a mind s mode of writing Some write according to delectatio morosa Thomas de uincey for instance once hinted at the dark frenzy of horror
