Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

A love story set in a world of water, a sea story, sex and love and money stories, sad and happy stories of snow and prehistory. This collection includes stories that have been published in literary magazines and newspapers, and included in international anthologies. The characters are vividly real, the problems they face devastating, and their solutions heartrending or funny or horrifying. 
In a story set on a planet inhabited by a mixture of humans who have evolved to live under the sea and invaders who have genetically engineered their bodies, the story of a judicial murder and its consequences are told by a girl on the brink of adolescence, whose forbidden love is one of the factors in the trial. In another story a lover devoted after years travels to the west-of-Ireland town determined to win back the singer he adores, but as he waits for her in her empty house, his longing changes to something more sinister. In an alternative Dublin a wealthy young Muslim, scion of an industrial family, has a life-changing encounter with a prostitute, in a story based on the model of mediaeval love songs. In a world overtaken by ice and snow, a child queen battles bears and takes wolves as her allies to win freedom for her people. For reader safety, these stories should be taken one at a time, like capsules of wonder.

This is a stunning collection of stories by a master-crafts-woman of the written word. What I love about Lucille's writing is the breadth of human experience that it encompasses. Where you or I might fear to go as writers, she rolls up her sleeves and pitches in, writing with authority about all sorts of alien cultures, real and imaginary. This collection of stories - many previously published - includes contemporary stories alongside tales set in the early twentieth century, an alternative (Muslim) Ireland, and a fantastic undersea society. "Water and Wolf", for example, is a charming story about a young woman who not only survives the most severe hardships, but triumphs over her enemies - a kickass heroine of pre-history. "Fish" is my personal favorite, although "Love" comes a close second. Highly recommended. Watch out for more from this talented writer/journalist/editor.

The first word is "elsewhen," another time. This single breath readies us for unfamiliar places, past settings and impossible worlds, including worlds impossibly cruel. "And the Green Sea Ebbs Away" largely takes place on the ocean floor, when genetic engineering allows for undersea homes, factories and ranches. We look on as a young couple makes love in the waves. Afterwards they sink, but not into sleep or subconscious. This drifting away is literal.

"Wolf and Water" does not name its year or place. The timeless struggle for a crown could be modern day, historical, or otherworldly. "Elsewhen" describes an alternate, perhaps past version of Dublin, where a camel caravan ends in a stock market report. "Fish" is seen through the eyes of trout stocked for food service.

Redmond's technique is humbling: the hard shifts between first- and third-person keep "Elsewhen" paced properly, lest we miss the counterintuitive final page. Transitions are playful and subtle, so be prepared for fade outs such as "Six thousand miles away, five thousand hours away." A widower remarks during "The Sanctuary Keeper" how, "At that time, I was eating grief raw."

And what with all of the nature on display here--the nature of love, the Orwellian equality of the wolves, the fish and cats all around, the nettles, weeds and nightshades--what is most palpable is human nature. A jilted man attacks his former lover simply for blemishing his record. A landowner frames two young men for murder after they poach one of his cows. After a sex scandal with a student, a philosophy professor cannot resist a second tryst. (More on the subject of loveplay, the men in the audience will absolutely squirm to hear Mrs. Ormsby's account of sex with her husband.)

Despite the heavy concentration of prose and veteran maneuvers, Redmond most prefers storytelling. "Elsewhen" is at is core a romance, built from a familiar template. "Fish" gains its momentum when a luxury cruise ship strikes an iceberg. "Our Fenian Dead" follows an Irish republican from Liscullane to Louisiana, where Liscullane is waiting for him. This way the pages seems both foreign and recognizable at once. The result is an unforgettable work by a strong, if sometimes blunt literary voice.

The stories in this wonderful collection are heartbreaking, chilling or playful, all threaded with tremendous authority and wisdom. My favourite is `Fish', which features the occupants of a kitchen aquarium on a doomed ocean liner: "Later, as the ship's electric lights continued to burn below the sea, the fish swam away. They could not hear the roar like the sound of a football crowd which rose from the people in the water ..." That's just one example of Lucille Redmond's powerful and haunting economy of style - she doesn't waste a single word. This collection repays careful reading; these stories will stay with you. Highly recommended.
