I enjoyed the first in this book of short stories but the others were not for me All very clever and reminded me of surrealist paintings but I was bored Could be just bad timing I might enjoy it at a later I was bored Could be just bad timing I might enjoy it at a later but I doubt it I only read the title story and alf the next one about some stupid woman La sculpture sur pierre : Art et techniques having an affair with a dick artist I failed to realize when ordering this that it was a collection of short stories rather than a novel Really enjoyed Great bite sized stories that read like fables for adults I am embarrassed to say Iad not Bear Humbug heard of Marcel Aym until I came acrossis work while searching for magic realist books I was somewhat relieved to Afterlife hear that my bibliophileusband Blue Is for Nightmares hadn t either And yet Aym is a writer described by George Simenon as The greatest French writer of the day Unfortunately little of Aym s writingas been translated into English which if this collection of short stories is anything to go by is a great shame There are ten short stories in this book and nearly all can be considered magic realism I was reminded of Kafka when I read the book Aym s approach is to take a fantastical element set it in a realistic setting and follow the internal logic to its conclusionThis appeals to me as I said in my review of The Peculiar Sadness of Lemon Cake I like there to be a logic within the story Dutilleul the man who walks through walls starts ardly there to be a logic within the story Dutilleul the man who walks through walls starts ardly L'Ingénu his gift at all but a series of actions and events takeim down a slippery path Likewise the woman who can duplicate The Strathmore Club herself starts with just one other self but after a whileer other selves are duplicating and the numbers increase exponentially Some of the stories are amusing surrealism but others Pampa Pampa have a dark tone to them Published in 1943 the stories reference the grim reality of life in occupied France The most striking is Tickets on Time in which in response to shortages the government decides to put unproductive consumers to death by rationing the number of days they are alive Unproductive is defined to include the rich elderly unemployed writers and artists and of course Jews Sadly the subject matter is still relevant in 2013My favourite story was The Seven League Boots This story looks at a gang of boys and their relationships and the wider context of social status Not until the end is there much sign of magic realism In this and in all the stories Aym s strength is the characterization of the stories participants Despite being short stories the characters motives and emotions are well defined and explored No wonder Simenon admire Aym so much This review first appeared in my magic realism blog One of the best collections of short stories I ve EVER read Aym is considered one of France s national treasures and now that ofis work is being translated and as the many multilingual comments below show Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus his reputation will surelyave lasting value beyond France s borders Often discussed within the context of magical realism Aym is actually of a modern fabulist Several of the fables and tales in this collection are reimagined interpretations of older classics the rape of the Sabine women for instance or the seven league.

Boots One of my favorites is the Poldavian Legend where a saintly woman is refused entrance into Geometry Part 1: Quickstudy Laminated Reference Guide (Quick Study Academic) heaven while endless regimes of belligerent soldiers are welcomed without reservationLike all fables Aym s stories end with some sort of moral but with a twentieth century twist that is a complicated and often unjust though accurate perception aboutuman values in the face of WWII atrocities What do you take a way from an ending like the one written for the Poldavian Legend Is it that in the modern state patriotism is piety no matter the bloody prereuisites of The Patriot Whatever The Case patriot Whatever the case lesson reflects the way things are rather than the way things should be a sort of reversal of the fable s form Some of the stories are grotesue some are enchanting but all are inventive fresh and revelatory This is a book I ll return to Highly recommend Memorable for its absurdity but an uneven collection of short stories I especially enjoyedle passe muraille the 1951 movie version mesmerised me when I watched it as a kid in the 1980sles Sabines with a woman who duplicates Herbier et autres collections herself but shares the mind of aller copiesLa Carte when people get 1 day life passes the less useful they are the less they get A black market opens with some rich peoples getting than 31 days of life every month a lot better than the 2011 movie In Time remember that short story was first published in 1942I found some of the other stories uite bad let s just forget about those Le Passe Muraille The Passer Through Walls The Man Who Walked Through Walls Marcel Aym The passer through walls translated as The Man Who Walked through Walls The Walker through Walls or The Man who Could Walk through Walls is a short story published by Marcel Aym in 1943A man named Dutilleul
