    PDF/EPUB sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk ð Fen PDF ´ Fen EpubDaisy Johnson's first novel Everything Under was one of the highlights of this year's Man Booker longlist so I was very keen to get hold of a copy of this collection of stories which is also very accomplished for such a young writerThis collection is slippery liminal and atmospheric blending fairytale elements with the lives of real people and an earthy sexuality The most impressive and fully formed story is The Scattering which is also the longest Its narrator is the younger sister of a warring pair of twins one of whom tells her stories that match others in this collection Like those this one also involves an element of shapeshifting The fens are a constant brooding backdrop and as in Everything Under the

    PDF/EPUB sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk ð Fen PDF ´ Fen EpubI came to this book after reading Daisy Johnson’s wonderful Everything Under – a book I described alliteratively as a “literary novel of the liminal language leaving and legend longlisted for the 2018 Man Booker prize”Many reviews of that book have I feel concentrated on the legend part an even within that legend part on the Greek legend whose plot underlies the novel and looking for other Greek parallels whereas I saw the other elements of eual importance and the legend part as drawing on a modern range of English countryside or perhaps accurately waterside legendMy thoughts lead me to this book – the author’s debut book a short story collection Like Everything Under its main setting is the rivers and landwater boundaries of an area near an English ancient university – but in this case of a light rather than dark blue hueHaving spent the first 17 years of my life in South West Norfolk and following a brief Thames estuary break the next four year

    PDF/EPUB sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk ð Fen PDF ´ Fen EpubI read Fen on the back of the 2018 Booker shortlisted Everything Under Fen was written some two years previously Its a collection of short stories and had received praise from a relatively small number of readersThe stories are in many ways striking than the better known Everything Under and this is in part the nature of short stories that cannot meander Sarah Hall's term for the forgiving nature of longer novelsDaisy Johnson doesn’t meander here the majority of the stories are striking and shocking and certainly mystical Daisy Johnson has a fertile imagination and a dark side it would appear My favourite line is taken from How To FK A Man You Don’t Know “Talking about Ira and the Booker shortlist You think this makes him knowing and intellectual”60 I heard Daisy Johnson talking at Waterstones Covent Garde

    PDF/EPUB sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk ð Fen PDF ´ Fen EpubIt is going to be very difficult to knock this off the spot of best book of the year for me I have always enjoyed books set around harsh landscapes am I the only person to find Wuthering Heights a 'cosy' novel? and that is part of what this book is set on the flat english Fenlands is It also appeals to the small townvillage girl in me The writing is beautiful and made the elements of magic injected into most of the stories completely plausible as well as being magical each was so human Reading this was a joy I had to stop reading to save some for the next evening My particular favourites were 'How to Fuck a Man You Don't Know' and 'Language' Each story I read I found myself cursing my imagination for not coming up with such simple and natural id

    PDF/EPUB sharkmotorcyclehelmets.co.uk ð Fen PDF ´ Fen EpubSome nice writing but this was unfortunately another letdown for me though if magical realism is your thing you might find some stories to enjoy here For me the stories ended up being pretty repetitive with protagonists which became interchangeable as the collection went on Like some other reviewers have mentioned I feel like this could have been enjoyable if there were fewer stories but they were fleshed out as a few of them definitely had potential
