Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory Stories Read & Download ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF From the creator and executive producer of the beloved and universally acclaimed television series BoJack Horseman a fabulously off beat collection of short stories about love the best and worst thing in the universeWritten with all the scathing dark humor that is a hallmark of BoJack Horseman Raphael Bob Waksberg's stories will make readers laugh weep and shiver in uncomfortably delicious recognition In A Most Blessed. i snatched this arc up because Raphael Bob Waksberg is the creator of bojack horseman i like my entertainment to be on the sadder side of the emotional spectrum and bojack is the saddest show on television do not come at me waving your this is usmillion little things banners because you re not winning this one between the writing the vocal talents and whatever the tragic analogue to comedic timing is bojack s got the trophy for saddest sewn up and i know it takes several villages to create a teevee show and sometimes their creators ll create a thing and then wander off to go create another thing leaving the showrunners in charge of all that follows but i was confident that this guy s sensibilities would make for some short stories that would kick me in my feelingpartsand i was not disappointedno wait actually at first i WAS disappointed here s the thing my looking back sense of this book as a whole is very positive however the second half of the collection was stronger than the first and it took me a while to start digging it i am telling you this because i always feel compelled to review short story collections piece by piece because my life is full of poor time management decisions so if you are reading this because YOUR life is full of poor time management decisions you may read my mini reviews of the early stories and too hastily conclude oh so this is a collection of meh stories but you would be as wrong in thinking this as you would be in thinking that this is us compares to a bojack in terms of its searing heartblistering devastation ie very wrong so to beginthe first two are pretty much throwaway pieces not that they aren t enjoyable but they are very brief 2 pages nonstoriesSalted Circus Cashews Swear to God this isn t really a story so much as it is a thematic introduction the risk v reward of romantic relationships factor heavily in this collection in which vulnerability is a recurring factor love is one of those trust falls that will most certainly make a fool out of you but what if comes the whisper the slick devil persuasion what if it s different this timethe symbolism is kind of fucking genius using the olde snake in a can gag to invoke those tremulous once bitten twice shy beginning stages of any relationship all the promises This time there is no snake waiting but there s also an insidious underlayer of salesmanship to the pitch a you know you want to invitation to open that can that invokes a different snake the one whose persuasive talents led to that very first couple s very first discord and therefore responsible for every breakup ever all in under 2 pages so will you or won t you do you dare SIDENOTE i also really like the playfulness with fonts that occurs in this story and several others throughout the collection it s weird and wonky and funshort stories a series of ten what to call these too long to be epigrams not didactic enough to be aphorisms too interconnected to be flash fiction too bleak to be greeting cards let s call them bojack outtakes because this 7 I don t even think about you he couldn t wait to tell her just as soon as she called him backcalls to mind the sulking huff of a very drunk horse and 6 I never thought I could be this happy she imagined one day saying to someonegives me the same sobbing heart feelings as most of princess caroline s storylinesokay and now the real stories begin i very much liked those first two pieces but they were too short to really stick in my reader craw i spent much time writing those words and looking for those pictures just now than i did reading the stories in the first place once again proving that all my time management decisions are bad ones no picturesA Most Blessed and Auspicious Occasion unfortunately this one didn t wow me it s a fine story but as the first long piece in the book i needed a bigger hook to land me it s a solid three star it s well constructed and the lampooning of wedding culture is probably really enjoyable for readers who have gone through the experience themselves or have been to than two weddings in the past 15 years it just didn t inspire any strong feelings in me one way or another even though i do appreciate all the splattery goat slaughter parts is it weird that i relate to that than i relate to a wedding ceremony should i bother unpacking that or would that be another one of those wastes of time self scrutiny always a waste moving on Missed Connections m4w i promise you my feelings for this book WILL skew positive just not yet this one seemed like another little throwaway piece and in fact it originally appeared on craigslist in the missed connections section coming across it there i think i would have been delighted its placement here at the start of what is already a fairly shaky collection is less so it s a cute modern prufrockian urban love story about a love that coulda been but again it s very brief a full FOUR pages this time and i haven t been landed yet but i m going to be landed you ll see The Serial Monogamist s Guide to Important New York City Landmarks okay it s not this one but again this is a good story it s sweet and nostalgic and perfectly fine and relatable especially for someone who has lived and loved all over NYFC and understands perfectly how many places are past haunted and inspire flashback montages of happy and crappy romances it just didn t give me anything i hadn t encountered elsewhere in my reading life decent story no fireworksWe Men of Science this is the one i liked the least i know so far this review is a drag but right now we are only on page 45 and there are than 200 pages to go and soon you ll forget all about these iffy ones just like i did this one has fun doodles including CATS but it s also a sci fi lite story with alternate realities and i guess multiple ways to screw up your relationships perfectly acceptable as a story just not my thing you will probably like it than i did because we are different people however this one does have one of the most bojack y ruminations Perhaps a better me would have done the right thing and left or a worse me wouldn t have worried about it just indulged in the transgression but I am only as good as I am and I could only do what the person as good as I am could doA statue isn t built from the ground up it s chiseled out of a block of marble and I often wonder if we aren t likewise shaped by the ualities we lack outlined by the empty space where the marble used to be I ll be sitting on a train I ll be lying awake in bed I ll be watching a movie I ll be laughing And then all of a sudden I ll be struck by the paralyzing truth It s not what we do that makes us who we are It s what we don t do that defines us Lies We Told Each Other a partial list a bitterbleak comedy in outline form bullet pointing a couple s relationship arc all the empty reassurances promises self delusions and gaslighting that goes into maintaining a healthy modern relationship another brief one but it s astute and funny plus it gets points for successfully suggesting the entire body of a relationship using only these skeletal snippets These Are Facts i don t know what the hell i think about this one this is the problem with reviewing each and every story when NOBODY ASKED YOU TO on the one hand i m interested enough in the characters and the situation to want to read like i think i could read a whole novel with these characters or maybe a salinger style story cycle on the other hand isn t that supposed to be one of the hallmarks of a good short story that it leaves you wanting WWRCD in which RC is raymond carver duh i don t know i still feel like a short story dummy in many ways as far as what they are supposed to do and what i as a reader am meant to get out of them i liked a lot of moments in this story i folded over a few pages because of an especially lovely turn of phrase or insight but i m not sure what if anything it left me with for a story that ends with the words Yeah I know i really really don t Lunch with the Person Who Dumped You another little bitty comedic interlude of a story it s that thing when you re meeting someone for dinner but you re hungry NOW and you shove whatever s handy into your face to tide you over and it s not that you don t enjoy the eating of it but you re really ready for dinner to happenRUFUS this is dinner happening this is the story that started turning it around for me fun fact i don t usually love dog voiced stories but this one made me smile and got me all soft in the heart in a book filled with love stories this one about the waxing and waning of a human romance seen through the fuzzy filter of doggy understanding this is the one that got me a little choked upManMonster scratches my back and he makes a noise like Rufus rufus rufus And I know that noise Rufus can mean many things Sometimes Rufus means I am happy to see you and sometimes it means I am upset and this time I discern that it means both things at oncehe is GoodogRules for Taboo another tiny 3 page story but coming as it did after a GREAT story i was pleasantly disposed towards it on the one hand this story is an instruction booklet for how to play the board game taboo on the other hand it s an instruction booklet for why couples shouldn t play games in mixed company that encourage the sharing of personal history because what begins as an innocent night of fun can uickly turn into an airing of grievances and too much insight into a relationship s stress fractures also title sighting Up and Comers this one is the one my favorite it has so much energy and is so much fun it s one of the longest ones in the collection it might even be the longest it s either this or the penultimate story but i REFUSE to do any mathresearch into the matter because i am LEARNING how to be judicious about my time expenditures have you even NOTICED the lack of pictures if you know me you might think it is strange that my favorite story in this collection is about the exploits of a rock band who are also superheroes i know me and i think it is strange but it is about the very small and ordinary human things that are happening underneath all the flash and glamor of being in a rock band and being superheroes and it is deeply moving and sweet in its most uietly uneventful moments and it got me all over this isn t true spoiler but it is a maybe spoiler to someone because it is the end of the story it doesn t you know reveal the name of the murderer or anything also spoiler alert there isn t a murdereri just liked it so i typed itview spoiler I remember one time I asked Iris if she was afraid to die This was when we were trapped in the Man Pig Pit of Dimension K and it really looked like we might not make it home Iris said afraid or not it didn t really matter That the thing about death is that it s terrifying and overwhelming and it can happen at any moment And when we re confronted with death we can either be cowardly or we can be brave but either way we re going to die soAnd I thought Whoa that s darkBut here I was sitting in my childhood bedroom with a guitar The Up and comers were over and done with and it was just Lizzy and me and it was the afternoon and it was summer in Tulsa and Lizzy was lying on my bed looking as calm and beautiful as I had ever seen her and she was asking me to play her something I had writtenAnd I thought about how actually if you wanted to you could say the same thing about life That life is terrifying and overwhelming and it can happen at any moment And when you re confronted with life you can either be cowardly or you can be brave but either way you re going to liveSo you might as well be brave hide spoiler
