    One thought on “You Are Not a Stranger Here”

    1. 4.5 starsThe first four short stories in this collection ripped my heart to shreds I have never felt so moved by short fiction Adam Haslett has this stunning, almost scary ability to make you care so goddamn much about his characters even when they inhabit 30 pages or less His stories focus on grief, mental illness, and sexuality Some of my favorites include Notes to My Biographer, in which a mentally ill father visits his son for the first time in years The Beginnings of Grief, about a boy who [...]

    2. I m going to try to be coherent here, but to be honest I am still mentally reeling and staggering about from this one I don t read short story collections very often, because as a rule I prefer the character development and emotional attachment that comes with getting lost in a long novel, but I hereby vow to read every single thing Adam Haslett ever writes short story collection, novel, book of haikus, whatever Because Haslett is the kind of author who can give me chills, make me tear up, make [...]

    3. LA GIUSTA DISTANZADomanda qual la giusta distanza Risposta quella che adotta Adam Haslett.Domanda Come si misura Risposta n troppo vicino n troppo lontano alla giusta distanza, appunto Empatia senza indulgere al compiacimento.Il regista Carlo Mazzacurati con la protagonista Valentina Lodovini sul set de La giusta distanza , un film del 2007.Sicuramente Haslett si muove a suo agio fra le storie, i personaggi, e le ambientazioni della sua raccolta, perfettamente inserito, per nulla estraneo il tit [...]

    4. This collection may have ruined me for all the short story collections I haven t read yet Subtle perfection 4.5 stars

    5. 3,5 stars.I really have to start to read blurbs As always, I picked up a book, knowing nothing about its content I had no idea that You Are Not a Stranger Here was a collection of short stories After the first chapter I knew for sure that I was enjoying the writing but trying to figure out where the story was going on and how the figures from the first chapter were connected to the figures in the second chapter The moment I started the third chapter or actually the third story in this collection [...]

    6. To start with, I am not a fan of short stories That is why I know I would have never picked up Haslett s collection of short stories You are not a Stranger Here if it was not for Laura s inspiring review, which you can read here It s not an easy task to describe these magical sketches about the imperfect lives of imperfect people Complicated family relationships, homosexuality, coming of age, mental disorders, loss and trauma are ingeniously mixed by Haslett s talented hand and presented to us i [...]

    7. Encounters with Death IllnessYes, you must be wondering what I found so wonderful in that that I gave it all the stars It s the writing, the people in it that made me eager to read rather than sad In fact I had to make myself slow down and read only two a day so that I could savour them properly as they should be.The people Adam Haslett wrote are the kind I want to wrap in cotton wool and keep safe but nah that would be numbing, I have to let them go, set them free, to breathe, live and see the [...]

    8. Please read Lena s wonderful review here.Heartbreaking, liberating, inspiring This is by far one of the most accomplished pieces of writing that I ve ever read I read it when it first came out and then again over Christmas Adam Haslett is a genius You will savor each and every sentence.

    9. For me, You Are Not a Stranger Here is in some ways defined by what it isn t It doesn t abide by any of the trends we ve seen in short stories in recent years There s no magical realism No confessional diary like stuff No stories where very little happens and then the whole thing is redeemed by an epiphany, or that end just as they seem to be getting started.Instead, what we have here is actual short stories There s intriguing action and dialogue all the way through There are some lovely charact [...]

    10. Here are some of the things this book is about fathers and sons, ailing relatives, madness and its inheritability, homosexuality and its consequences, the slippery boundaries between sanity and in It s sad and lonely and full of longing and ache Many of the stories end with a twist not like the twist of a road under your wheels, but the twist of a metaphorical knife in a metaphorical back, making an already sorrowful and unfortunate tale even sadder Everything is overlain with melancholy, with h [...]

    11. This idea of living your life as an elegy, inoculating yourself against the present So much easier if you can see people as though they were just characters from a book You can still spend time with them But you have nothing to do with their fate It s all been decided The present doesn t really matter, it s just the time you happen to be reading about them Which makes everything easier To say that I was overwhelmed reading this anthology would be an understatement It s not an easy read since the [...]

    12. Of the nine stories in this debut collection, at least six are definite 5 star gemse rest, although equally well written, I was less enthusiastic about, but I decided the collection as a whole did merit five stars As in his most recent book, Imagine Me Gone my favorite book of the past year, hence impelling me to read Haslett s backlist , the emphasis here is on both mental illness usually depression or bipolar disease and the effects of such on family dynamics Only two of them exhibit the humor [...]

    13. Really powerful series of short stories mostly focused on mental illness I m not typically a fan of the short story as I prefer having time for character and story development However, this collection is one of the best I ve read It s poignant and nuanced handling of mental health is outstanding As someone who knows quite a bit about the subject, each of these stories felt real and raw and true I highly recommend it, particularly if you d like insight into the mentally ill So great

    14. I find it difficult to write objectively about Adam Haslett s fiction After reading over and over, studying, underlining words, sentences, sometimes entire paragraphs You Are Not a Stranger Here, Haslett s first book, a collection of stories that was a finalist for both the Pulitzer Prize and The National Book Award, I wanted to write a few paragraphs analyzing the theme of mental illness, a subject that occurs in almost half the collection s stories As I try to compose my ideas, find my own wor [...]

    15. This is a solid menagerie of stories, and a great reminder of just how much I appreciate a well curated short story collection Most of the stories bring to life characters who are suffering from some form of mental illness, and I felt a tremendous pathos and humanity while I made my way through the book My favourite stories by far were The Beginnings of Grief and Reunion I m now extra excited to read Imagine Me Gone.

    16. You and all the inheritors of wealth who think life is a matter of perfected sentiment You are wrong The Volunteer 237 You know those books you should have just gone ahead and read because people you trust swore by them You Are Not a Stranger Here Stories by Adam Haslett has been sitting on our shelves since I think 2003 It is Sean s copy and he and our friend Kevin were the ones swearing In my own defense, each were wrecked by the read in a good way and sad was a word oft repeated in my presenc [...]

    17. Wow, this is one of the best books of short stories I ve ever read Top 5 for sure I loved four of them Notes to My Biographer, The Beginnings of Grief, Devotion, and Divination and the rest were merely very good Biographer is actually in the running for my favorite short story ever It starts the book off with such a bang, a man who you only realize two pages in is on a manic bender, this searing, frenetic freight train screaming toward a collapsed bridge I was amazed and enthralled The Good Doct [...]

    18. This was not one of my favorite books, but it does stand as one of the interesting, challenging collections I ve read, mostly because Haslett s fiction delves into highly charged issues without sacrificing narrative integrity but also because Haslett s prose is so perplexing, at once seeming carefully composed and ostentatiously extravagant in its use of detail Haslett explores mental illness and homosexuality as sources of societal stigma, following his characters as they struggle with family [...]

    19. Perhaps i had high expectations for this book, or high hopes, as my expectations of anything are generally pretty low Or perhaps i was biased by the silly picture of the author on the back, with that pseudo Truman Capote thing going on Everything i d heard described this as genius, the next great writer, etc and there is definitely talent here But i found it all a bit too controlled, especially the humor, which i recognized as humor, and appreciated a certain cleverness in the humor, but i never [...]

    20. Dark, dark, dark That works for me All of the stories have to do with alienation, depression, homosexuality a brutal coming out, dying of AIDS, resigning to a life of no affection , decay, mental illness am I missing something All of these topics are great, and the overarching theme is, I guess, alienation But the stories are uneven Some of them, like The beginning of grief, and War s End, pack a punch and lingered with me days later Others are ambitious but fall flat A few seem promising,like N [...]

    21. Wow I didn t realize how much this short story compilation would affect me These stories really touch on dark emotions and the borders of humanity that are sometimes taboo I loved the darkness and sinister feeling in some of the stories My favorite one was definitely The Beginning of Grief It is a tremendous representation of what some people go through during stages of loss and even self hate I am also obsessed with Haslett s reoccurring themes and his full circle ability The stories are brilli [...]

    22. 4.5 STARS.Absolutely brilliant short stories Underlying theme in all of them is that someone is ill, often with a mental health issue The only negative for me and this is the case with most short story books I read, is that I want The story ends and I want it to go on But I guess that is good as well Each story in this book made me think and ponder Will definitely read by this author.

    23. I was suspicious of the book when it came out because rarely does a short story collection receive that much attention and that many stellar reviews how could it be true But it IS good, very good Several stories in the collection are truly excellent the title story is one of my favorites.

    24. I love short stories and Adam Haslett His stories, though, are not easy to read and most are dark and deal with depression An exceptional writer and story teller.

    25. Saw him read from his new novel yesterday Ultimately, his writing strikes me as a little bland He s good with character and in this collection he does some nifty experimenting, but there s something a little careful and restrained about even his experiments His stuff seems over workshopped I d compare him to Jonathan Franzen the poor man s version.There is one truly great story in this collection, though Devotion It s about a brother s betrayal of his sister and the long term consequences It con [...]

    26. Ovo je odli no napisana zbirka pri a koja mi se zapravo uop te ne dopada, mu na je i bolna u tom neprestanom prikazu nesre e, tuge, proma enosti, mentalnih bolesti, sa dosta upe atljivih motiva, ali i sa povremenim grotesknim preterivanjem koje umesto da oslika ne iju hudu sudbu pre izaziva nevericu i distanciranje gubitak maj inih prstiju, recimo, ili de akov pad na kosilicu Stoga ove pri e mnogo bolje funkcioni u kad se na u u antologijama, okru ene radovima autora koji umeju da unesu i nekaka [...]
