love Facing who we are our transient nature the elusive ways of love and life and all of the unknowns of life I felt a strong sense of being the silent person sitting by and listening watching these

FREE READ ã The Largesse of the Sea Maiden Ortant writers of his generation this collection finds Johnson in new territory contemplating the ghosts of the past and the elusive and unexpected ways the mysteries. What is the loudest thing you ve ever heard What about the uietest This collection of short stories starts with a party scene where people are wracking their brains for memories I want to be at this party For a second I forget about the book as I race down memory lane wondering what I would come up with if someone asked me these uestions Seriously these are delicious things to ponder Already this writer has me in the palm of his handFunny I was dreading this book First off what s with the snooty academic title I confess I didn t even know what largesse meant all I could hear was large which is NOT its synonym it turns out And sea maidens oh no Are these stories going to be about myths or fairy tales two of my most unfavorite thingsAnd then there s the blah cover I like purple I really do but this cover is plain Jane and the title doesn t stand out enough It s in all caps which I hate And there are lines running through the title in my editor eyes lines through text mean throw the words the hell out Even though I have the Kindle version and don t have to look at the book I know it has an ugly cover and lol this made me not want to read it You can t fool me cover I know what you really look like I figured anyone who picked out that blah cover must be peddling a blah book Plus after reading a few reviews I worried that this was going to an academic read that it was Fine Literature full of symbolism and imagery and I d feel all depressed because it bored me or went right over my headI couldn t have been wrong You start reading and wham You re pulled right into that party scene with the two killer uestions But that scene as rich as it is is isolated disconnected from the story In fact all five stories have the meander disease But what I got instead of clean clear plots were these brilliant little vignettes embedded everywhere and I just savored them There are some long ass sentences but who cares I couldn t take my eyes off his prose Each story is narrated by a man who is looking back at his life There s addiction obsession guilt estrangement worry death The author has a brilliant sense of the absurd which is his ticket to my heart I ran into sentences like this which made me swoon How often will you witness a woman kissing an amputation The author died of liver cancer in 2017 and this was his last work I m thinking he was beating the clock and maybe he just didn t have time to go for cohesion Death is a theme throughout the stories though the collection isn t maudlin It s clear that sometimes the author is looking at his own life and there are pieces of him in his characters It s plain to you that at the time I write this I m not dead But maybe by the time you read it I decided early on that it was okay if plot wasn t Johnson s thing I was mesmerized by his description of complex down and outer characters by his amazing insight into the human condition And he s one of those authors who observes the little things that we want to pretend we didn t see or feel Or maybe it s not that we re pretending events didn t happen maybe it s just that these little things in our consciousness get trumped by the bigger things Johnson brings the little things back to lifeAs always I liked some stories better than others My favorite was The Starlight on Idaho about a guy in rehab writing letters to everyone he knows I m always a sucker for letters anyway and here I was enrapturedThere was a little work reuired as I was reading Whenever I opened the book I had to reread uite a few pages and concentrate pretty hard I think this is because the stories don t have an obvious plot and without an obvious plot it s easy to lose your bearings A minor complaint however The language is so rich I didn t mind the reread I did run into the dreaded try and crime now and then and I d wince but it was a one off event You won t find a lot of closure but then again stories short on plot don t necessarily warrant closure The exception is the last story about a guy obsessed with Elvis That one had a tight ending even though the inside did some meandering I wasn t crazy about the story at first but it grew on meAnd weird there are no chicks anywhere Don t ask me why I noticed this Occasionally a wife or a divorce is mentioned but that s the only inkling that another gender exists in the universe That strikes me as odd until I remember that we re supposed to write what we know Johnson knows men He knows how to talk about what goes on in a man s head Thankfully although the book is masculine there is no machoI got all busy checking out the author on the Internet which I usually do when I love a book I found out that he created this exuisite listThree Rules to Write By Write naked That means to write what you would never say Write in blood As if ink is so precious you can t waste it Write in exile as if you are never going to get home again and you have to call back every detailI m not sure I got all the meaning in these stories was there to the meandering than I could understand Dunno But in any case I was seduced by the polished prose and the intriguing offbeat charactersSo where has this writer been all my life I
