The Wavering Knife Stories

characters ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¸ Brian Evenson Free download The Wavering Knife Stories è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Brian Evenson's fifth story collection constructs a human landscape as unearthly as it is mundane Replete with the brutality primordial waste and savage blankness familiar to readers of his earlier works Evenson's Kafkaesue allegories entice the mind while stubbornly disordering it In the title story an obsessive consciousness folds back on itself creating a vertiginous mélange of Poe and Borges both horrific and metaphysical Here as in Moran's Mexico and Greenhous. I am unsure how to uantify my appreciation of this book THE WAVERING KNIFE is a short story collection so there were stories that were intriguing and mind bending in a way only Brian Evenson is capable of There was no bad story to speak of here but there are some I didn t understand Stories like MORAN S MEXICO A REFUTATION BY C STELZMANN or BODY for example But some of these stories man They re special WHITE SUARE is as much of a challenge to the reader than it is to its protagonist and you find SOME of the answers somewhere else in the book so you have to remain patient and alert THE INTRICACIES OF POST SHOOTING ETIUETTE is both hilarious and eerily humane VIRTUAL is probably my favorite story of the entire book which is about faith and obsession Loved the book It defeated me at times but I loved it nonetheless
