One thought on “Searches and Seizures

  1. Leo Robertson

    This is not bad Elkin I have a feeling I ll be able to place it better once I ve read of his work.I love what I saw in each of these novellas, however, which seemed to be a wilful abandon of the story s starting off point Each appeared to be about unhappy middle aged dudes giving way to despair which you may or may not know is one of my favourite topics for whatever reason but they just dissolved into something else Rich guy doesn t know how to love, dot dot dot, fucks a bear The end Can t say [...]

    My first impulse is to begin with Best bestiality scene in American literature , but I think that suggests a deeper familiarity than I m comfortable with What am I comfortable with Elkin plays particularly in these stories with the idea of experience what do you do with a hyper articulate person who begins his confession obviously knowing what the outcome will be Probably you ve met people like this But in Elkin s world, the static surface of despair which doesn t know it s despair will not rema [...]

    For Elkin, the sentence is than instrumental to the end, and its loving elaboration of perceptions, surprising and just, is the key to his work, putting him among not only the best of novelists, but only the best of writers Howard Nemerov The searches of Elkin s latest book are philosophical, but the seizures are almost epileptic In three novellas, through three very different alienated characters, Elkin traces a search for an Other, whether it be a criminal prey, a beloved, or the dead In each [...]

    I read some blurb on the back of my copy that said Elkin was one of America s great comic writers OH Is that what this is Comic Whew It s obscenely exhausting, but he does have great flow I certainly enjoyed some passages and novellas than others I was going to leave my copy in my London apartment, which is shared by other colleagues, but the fact that my name is in the cover and that the book has such wide ranging vulgarity makes me reconsider that option Started in June 2014 couldn t finish S [...]

  5. Nora

    Writes about fucked up shit without asserting that the world is a hopelessly fucked up place Sentences are elaborate without becoming glamorous Characters are absurd without becoming absurdist Overall I m pretty down if not in love Thanks Pappy for passing this one along.

  6. G

    Ugh For such a highly rated collection, I found it uniquely disappointing Elkins has a great vocabulary, but as a storyteller these three works were almost unintelligible.

  7. Duke Cullinan

    First I ve read of Elkin Brilliant writer It takes awhile to get used to the idea that he s going to free form a fireworks display of words, metaphors, images, in favor of moving the story along There is story here in these three novellas, interesting enough plots, but the real show is the language, Elkin s exuberance and delight in pouring lush description over fanciful conceit atop meticulous observation.
