Reasons to LiveAch dem ersten Grund suchen dich wieder fortzulegen Der Trick« sagt Amy Hempel über ihre Zeit als Journalistin »Ihnen keine Gründe zum Aufgeben zu lassen« atemlose heimtückische Short Stories die deutlich machen weshalb Hempel vielen als markanteste Erzählerin seit Raymond Carver gilt – und was sie zum Idol und besten Feindin der Generation X gemacht hat »Was uns treibt« Reasons to Live war ihr Debütband und ist in den USA eine seit Jahren geliebte tiefschwarz schraffierte CD auf dem Armaturenbrett eines Kleinwagens den man verscherbeln aufgeben schrotten will Ein Freudenfeuer Eine warme Decke den Kinde.

    REVIEW ½ Reasons to Live Reasons to LiveA fine book of short stories The shorter pieces are spare and elliptical sort of like Raymond Carver but without the self destructive power But the better longer pieces Nashville Gone to Ashes In The Cemetery Where Al Jolson is Burie

    REVIEW ½ Reasons to Live Reasons to LiveA spare collection of fifteen short stories Reasons to Live considers what it means to live an unconventional life With wit and ingenuity Hempel explores a wide array of disuieting themes from the listlessness of an aimless adulthood to the dread provoked by a close friend’s death Across all the swift tales the author fully renders the complex interior lives of her nar

    REVIEW ½ Reasons to Live Reasons to LiveI read somewhere that if you want to become a good writer read Amy HempelThe reason is that she is not only a minimalist but also because she is an intelligent short story writer This is true I don't have a plan to write because I am still busy

    REVIEW ½ Reasons to Live Reasons to LiveThe Wall Street Journal said of this One of the delights of these stories is that they approach the usual cliches of real life and fiction at an unexpected obliue angel I couldn't say it better if I tried There's so many reasons to live but Hempel reminds you of one major one which is to read work like this

    REVIEW ½ Reasons to Live Reasons to LiveIf you’ve been keeping track of my reviews thus far you know I don’t rate very highly but Amy Hempel’s Reasons to Live is the standard to which all other fiction books must rise Long before Chuck Palahniuk’s frenzied fan base or the New York Times 2006 Boo

    REVIEW ½ Reasons to Live Reasons to LiveDeath and tragedy haunt the short short stories in Amy Hempel’s first story collection Reasons to Live 1985 like empty chairs at the table And there is no steak no potatoes nor substantial courses atop Hempel’s literary table Instead the reader is treated to tapas bite size delicacies of exuisite flavors a literary lunch that only a truly talented minimalist or miniaturist writer could cook up successfully And underneath the table a dog or two lay near the diners’ feet ready to catch any falling morsels Dogs trot through these stories in the comfortable and presumptuous way any well loved pet wanders a home But it boils down to the sentence for Hempel Each sentence is crafted with care and precision to maximize the collective effect of denotation connotation rhythm and prose creating art illuminating truths and soliciting chuckles amidst the interspersed sighs and smiles her stories evoke Common daily occurrences make up much

    REVIEW ½ Reasons to Live Reasons to LiveFellow Amy Hempel crushing fanboy Chuck Palahniuk writes in his essay Not Chasing Amy I once gave At the Gates of the Animal Kingdom Stories to a friend and said 'If you don't love this we have nothing in common' Hempel has that effect on her readers you don't co

    REVIEW ½ Reasons to Live Reasons to LiveWell I don't think I got it This book had been recommended to me by numerous classmates and professors I kept hearing how great Amy Hempel is and she is great to some people of course The stories in this collection are short which I do like usually first person rarely name characters and bounce around from action to memories I guess you could call them slices of life They don't have plots so the stories just meander around vague situations and charactersI liked a few maybe 3 of them okay but most of the time I was confused wondering what the point of each story was If the book hadn't been just 100 pages I would have abandoned itBut to be clear I'm not much of

    REVIEW ½ Reasons to Live Reasons to Live The Doctor couldn't make it to the picnics or to the skating so he didn't show up in the pictures either The effect was of him saying after the flood What I lose will always be lostHis problem is the past Grey said about his father He says only do things you have done before and liked Whereas me what's coming is the thing I'm looking out forI thought the present was a safer bet We can only die in the future I thought; right now we are always alive This collection could as easily have been called something like Stories
