I really liked this short story collection But sometimes Stamm s stories turn a bit uncomfortable and creepy For instance there was a story called Deep Furrows about a couple with three beautiful 30 year old daughters They invited a man over and wanted him to marry one out of the three and stay forever He had to climb over the wall that surrounded their property to get eway very strange story I liked it though Did not expect something like that in here

In fremden Gärten

Orts full of derision and infinite tenderness There where life hesitates ready to tip over with nothing yet played out is where these people and their stories exist For us they all become exceptional Praise for Unformed Landscape Sensitive and unnerving An uncommonly intimate work one that will remind the reader of his or her own lived experience with a greater intensity than many of the books that are published right here at home The New Republic Onlin. Good selection of short pieces set in variuos locations internationally The main figure is often a loner type and there is a strong feeling of melancholy in lots of the stories Some pieces work better than others but there are no poor selections here

Rned stuntman crisscrosses the country dreaming of meeting a woman Inger the Dane refuses her skimpy life and takes off for Italy Regina so lonely in her big house since her children left and her husband passed away discovers the world anew thanks to the Australian friend of her granddaughter who helps Regina envision her next voyageIn these stories Stamm's clean style expresses despair without flash through softness and small gestures with disarming ret. Stranger and strangerA continuum of cold facts and discrete events some of which lead to something some erdon t The first collection in this edition are particularly stark appropriately titled Black Ice But there remains a core humanity which suggests the authorship a posture and a kind of sympathy is won for the characters who seem unfortunately hardened to this rather thinly populated world But only in The Experiment in the second collection did I come across the callousness I d expected from reading Zadie Smith s review of Stamm s Seven Years The dedicatory verse to the first collection states love is the one thing the author cannot tell of and the second collection In Strange Gardens is just perceptibly colourful One has to admire his control There also seems to be a slight varying of tone as he moves throughout from Swedish wilds to Spanish Harlem like some existentialist tourist guide When he visits Ireland he allows himself some magical realism again leading to nothing uietly engaging and shocking in turns a true masterpiece of dare I say postmodern meaninglessness

    I just read a short story by Stamm a Swiss writer in the New Yorker It was beautiful I'm always suspicious of male writers who use female main characters because as often as not it seems they're just being exploitative or trying to make some kind of point they don't think they can make with a male character But this one felt perfectly authentic So I want to read by him and I just checked and the library doesn't have it I'll hav
