We got one on our trail now I didn’t know what it was when I saw it It was too big to be anything real I keep thinking about them carrying dead sailors around them’’ I am ashamed to say that I was completely ignorant of the existence of this book It wasn’t included in any of the recommending reading lists I receive and I hadn’t read any review of it on Goodreads I had the luck to become aware of it after a suggestion by the wonderful

    PDF Fen PDF/EPUB ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk Fen EpubA collection of short stories as a literary debut which are really difficult to classify but are impressive They are set in the fens The fenlands cover parts of East Anglia Cambridgeshire and southern Lincolnshire I am a Lincolnshire lad I wasn’t born or brought up in the fens but I know them fairly well One thing you do get a lot of in the fens is eels not quite as many as there used to be Coincidentally I went to a farmers market this morning and inevitably there were eels filleted and smoked whole and smoked and jellied Although reading the first story in this collection may make you wary of eating any The fens are flat and can be bleak depending on the weather There is a sort of edgelessness to them because of the flatness and there is a real wildness Daisy Johnson herself uses the word liminal to describe the fens and the stories look the interview up on you tube Yo

    PDF Fen PDF/EPUB ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk 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 book is full of aqu

    PDF Fen PDF/EPUB ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk 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 equal 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 univer

    PDF Fen PDF/EPUB ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk 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

    PDF Fen PDF/EPUB ´ ´ transportjobsite.co.uk 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
