reader Ç I Live with You ↠ Carol Emshwiller

Ts a weary general and his sons against a village of determined mothers and I Live with You brings a chaos from an uninvited guest Filled with originality and lyricism this collection is a must for science fiction and adventure fansContentsIntroduction b Emshwiller is always daring in her storytelling From the plot to the writing style she is one of the most interesting writers in tone I've ever read The Mount A Novel is so fantastically weird and off the wall and yet so familiar in underlying themes that it became one of my favorite read once and share with others booksThat said this collection of stories appears to be for most of the stories stuff that's far out even for this author I'm not looking for nursery rhymes but the storyboard for some of these is incomplete It's almost like a beat writer For creativity this actually gets 5 stars The ideas themselves are also original and the way we are simply dropped into the stories very little or no background provided is something I often enjoy I cant say exactly why this collection didn't ring my bell Maybe I wanted like The Mount?Not a good intro to Emshwiller but a good garnish if you're reading her novels

I Live with You mobi Ù 232 pages Download Ù A sophisticated collection of fierce tender fiction marked by absurdist humor these striking short stories skillfully explore themes of war seduction and censorship An Eden emerges from the wreckage and destruction of burning books in The Library Boys sets a weary general and his sons against aA sophisticated collection of fierce tender fiction marked by absurdist humor these striking short stories skillfully explore themes of war seduction and censorship An Eden emerges from the wreckage and destruction of burning books in The Library Boys se The stories in this collection defy easy classification Most produce a sense of the unreal but only a few have an overtly fantastical element Many are unsettling some to the point that they become horror All are fascinating and original and I'm so glad to finally be acuainted with the late Emshwiller's workWar is a major theme in the collection and the characters in the war stories are all fighting perpetual conflicts with little understanding of what separates the two sides In Boys even the colonel narrating only knows that it's necessary to keep stealing young boys from the villages to replenish the army When the women in a village rise up against him they reveal how long they've been undermining his efforts In My General a woman takes in an enemy prisoner to work on her farm and for a while it looks as though there might be a way out of the cycle of war The roles and expectations of men and women feature heavily throughout the collection There's often a sentiment of Us versus Them whether it stems from gendered assumptions warring sides or some other division Coo People explains that another species of beings lives undetected among humans differing mainly in the slight lift that provides an advantage in ballet and similar fields All the characters in Gliders Though They Be are non human creatures and mutual hatred exists between those with the ability to glide from a great height and those withoutWhile these stories are dark they usually contain love but it tends to be an obsessive kind based upon nothing The narrator of Bountiful City so desperately wants to be in love that she randomly picks a target and pursues him before they've ever spoken In See No Evil Feel No Joy a woman in a strict religious sect begins to disobey after she briefly locks eyes with one of the men I found these off kilter love stories disturbingly compelling and evoking this feeling seems to be Emshwiller's particular talent If you're on board with that kind of reading experience I hope you'll be as captivated by this book as I was
