Will Solve Your Guy Drama Once and For All fantasy waking life and dreams the past and theuture 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. My irst brush with Millhauser He writes with such
exuisite precision i 
precision I have the sense that he holds each phrase up to the light turning it back and orth to look at it rom all directions then wielding it to refashion even the most mundane tale into something anciful thought provoking sympathetic troubling He makes us remember what it elt like to think profound thoughts When We Were Still Too Young To Understand Them Fully we were still too young to understand them ully through his mature eyes he The League for the Suppression of Celery forces us to revisit our very adulteelings of confusion and puzzlement He weaves antasy 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 This book started strong or me I liked the stories and they seemed to have interweaving themes But soon the themes seemed too much the same like often Millhauser was telling the same story only changing the setting and elements By the end of the book too many of the stories seemed to Suspicion at Seven: A Lois Meade Mystery follow similar molds Stories seem to start out with aanciful idea magician snowmen knife throwing etc The performance builds to the poi Here s something I admire Millhauser s singularity of purpose thematically He has a ew 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 repetition when you read volume start to inish But there are two exciting things there The Day Fidel Died first it is possibleor 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 rom now on I think this collection of stories would be best read a little at a time over a long period of time the themes and tone are all so similar Starting out I ound the ideas resh and interesting but after about the ifth story and there are 21 I was getting really annoyed at how similar everything sounded and then I started skimming which is too bad because many of the stories are well written and insightful Here s what I had to say about each story as I Gulp!: The Seven-Day Crash Course to Master Fear and Break Through Any Challenge finished you can see the deterioriation of my appreciat. “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’siction has consistently and to dazzling effect dissolved the boundaries.
