In those tightly drafted tales, Becker creates a large choice of particular voices, bizarre characters, and unusual stettings, with tantalizing emphasis on lonliness, loss, and the ubiquitous fight to discover one’s position within the world.  “It used to be flawed to imagine that our presence could linger on, even though it was once to this concept that i spotted I’d been greedy all along,” the music-student narrator of “Dangerous males” says after a night related to medicines, a struggle, and a motor vehicle twist of fate, “the concept that indirectly we have been etching ourselves onto the air, leaving shadows that will stay forever.”

Many of the items include track into the storyline.  song is a meeting aspect in his characters’ misfit lives.  In “Magister Ludi,” a seventeen-year-old woman meets up with an older neighborhood guitarist whom her more youthful brother has invited over to their apartment while their mom and dad are long gone, and performs him for her personal ends: “She makes Riggy force all over the heart of city, hoping that somebody will see them - one in every of her associates, or considered one of her mom and dad’ associates even, it doesn’t matter.  She simply likes the assumption of being noticed during this beat-up motor vehicle along anyone so disreputable.”

In “Erin and Malcom,” a bass participant with an injured hand who nonetheless lives together with his estranged spouse, a singer, and her puppy ferret, unearths out how out of track his lifestyles rather is: “Something has long past flawed - he may well see it within the means she checked out him over her morning bowl of cereal, and how she didn’t as she peeled herself out of her Lycra pants and leopard shirts at night.”

Yet , even if the track turns out quiet, there are stories of selection and happenstance.  “El Diablo de los angeles Cienega,” set in New Mexico, is set a boy who accepts the problem of a mysterious determine to a online game of basketball, for terribly excessive stakes indeed.  Charles Baxter - considered one of America’s nice tale writers - calls the tale “a small masterpiece.  It has formal perfection, like a folktale.  i presumed it was once wonderful.”

With leaps from the humorous to the unhappy and the revelatory, those outstanding tales discover desires and longing with outstanding perception and imagination.  those are tales you won't forget.

Im Sitzen läuft es sich besser davon: Erzählungen (German by Alois Hotschnig PDF

| November 23, 2017 | admin | 0

By Alois Hotschnig

Alois Hotschnig ist einer der besten Autoren seiner Generation.« Süddeutsche Zeitung
Auch in seinem neuen Erzählband geht es Alois Hotschnig um Existenzielles – und um das Komische daran. Mit Freude am absurden conversation, großem Sprachwitz und entschlossener poetischer Verdichtung zeigt er Menschen in mannigfaltigen Verstrickungen und zieht den Leser mitten in diese hinein.Katja Lange-Müller, die die Laudatio zur Verleihung des Erich-Fried-Preises 2008 hielt, sagt über ihn: »Jede seiner Zeilen, jedes Wort und jedes Satzzeichen beweisen mir, dass sich seine Schreibenergie aus dem Bedürfnis speist, unser so bewegtes, mitunter auch bewegendes Sein ergründen zu wollen.« Tatsächlich setzt Alois Hotschnig in seinen Geschichten unserer von Zufällen geprägten Welt das Zwingende entgegen. Kein Wort zu viel, keine Eindeutigkeiten, genauer Blick auf seine Figuren – und reichlich Zwischentöne, die seine Geschichten zum Klingen bringen. Mit dieser Sprach- und Schreibpräzision gelingt es ihm, das Zwanghafte einzufangen, Absurditäten und Aporien zu zeigen und Mitgefühl für Menschen zu mobilisieren, die nicht anders können, obwohl sie gern anders wollten. Zum Beispiel das gealterte Ehepaar, das sich in der Erzählung »Die großen Mahlzeiten« darüber zu verständigen sucht, wer wann wie viel von welchem Medikament zu sich nehmen muss und used to be daraus für ihren Alltag folgt. Oder die Dörfler, die sich den Attacken des von seinen Haltern geliebten Hundes Karl ausgesetzt sehen und irgendwann feststellen müssen, dass seinen Bissen heilende Kräfte innewohnen – woraufhin er nicht mehr beißen mag.Nach seinem hochgelobten Erzählband Die Kinder beruhigte das nicht hat Hotschnig die Tonart gewechselt und eine Freude am grotesken Humor entwickelt, der die Beklemmung durch das Lachen sprengt.
