    Download reader ☆ It's Beginning to Hurt Hardcover It's Beginning to HurtI am not a connoisseur of short stories Novelettes are ok but the short story itself is too fast for me I appreciate a good plot well worked out and character defined by key elements or dialogue but for me there is no time to get to know the people and that is what I like mos

    Download reader ☆ It's Beginning to Hurt Hardcover It's Beginning to HurtI have to admit that I've only read the story after which the book was named; a very visual sad story that I thought was a BBC National Short Story Prize winner but turns out it was another in the book I've just ordered the whole collection so I'll give the rest a read in the near futureI read it a long time ago at the same time as I read A Tray of Ice Cubes by Gerard Woodward which is a very strange and entertaining story about a man who gets pregnant You can read both online

    Download reader ☆ It's Beginning to Hurt Hardcover It's Beginning to HurtLasdun is so revealing Why is it that when one sees the innermost thoughts of a forty or fifty something man one feels slightly embarrassed as though there were something pitiful about the conclusions they manage to align like a teetering stack of children's building blocks? Though writing from the United States Lasdun always retains his essential Englishness like I might add Netherland author Joseph O'Neill These men writing about the minds of men bring out the voyeur in me But these men manipulate me and I allow them to do so because of their felicity with language They can pull back a corner of the veil to reveal something true but which may not be wholly comp

    Download reader ☆ It's Beginning to Hurt Hardcover It's Beginning to HurtIt's difficult to give five stars to a collection of short stories because that would suggest that there were no stories I liked or less than the others Having said that this one probably rates 45 The title story a mere two pages when the others are mostly 12 15 is particularly poignant 'I'm in love with you’ the mistress says matter of factly to her married lover as she is breaking off the relationship ‘and it's beginning to hurt’Others I particularly liked include 'An Anxious Man' winner of the BBC National Short Story Award about a man who has plenty to worry about from the dodgy state of the stock market to his little daughter's sleepover with some new neighbours; 'Peter Kahn’s Third Wife' a wine merchant cheuered romantic career se

    Download reader ☆ It's Beginning to Hurt Hardcover It's Beginning to HurtTo begin with let me say that the two books that I have read by Lasdun have turned me into a fan; now I would like to read them all Here is a collection of wonderfully written stories that are full of insight and seasoned with dry biting humor The author can take fairly ordinary situations and using his remarkable powers of description make them appear revealing and scintillating His characters are for the most part middle class Brits and Americans many struggling with some sort of disconcerting romantic situation Not all the stories had a major effect on me but the few that did I will remember and think about again as I did with his novel The Horned ManThe stories in the second half of the collection are especially potent In A Bourgeois Story a successful

    Download reader ☆ It's Beginning to Hurt Hardcover It's Beginning to HurtI concur with John Sara and Isa's reviews of this collection The technical prowess craft and detail of the story telling is evident I also like the subject matter and characters However the lack of emotion coming off the page such as a story like Anxious Man where the opening dialogue immediately captures the reader but in the end its almost like the author walked away from the keyboard then came back without the emotional intensity to wrap it up This unfortunately happens many times throughout and most stories just left me indifferent and not memorable I did like Cleanness' and the transformational as well as imaginative ending My favorites are Totty Peter Kahn's Third Wife and Caterpillars The vision of each is seen through from beginning to end and the objectives as well as emotions of the characters resonated It's rare that I plop down over twent

    Download reader ☆ It's Beginning to Hurt Hardcover It's Beginning to HurtThe writing is extraordinary Lasdun's novel The Horned Man was remarkably well written too but here in the short story form he doesn't have to manage so long and detailed a plot and the book is better as a result Unlike a Carver story for instance most of these stories cover large spans of times in the characters' lives and have relatively little dialogue and most of the stories' endings may be unconventional insofar as they don't provide much resolution and often stop in me
