From the famous (Rick Bass, Wendell Berry, Elizabeth Spencer, Wells Tower, Padgett Powell, Dorothy Allison, Brad Watson) to the finest new talents, Amy Hempel has selected twenty-five of the best, most arresting stories of the past year.

☯ Full Synopsis : "J'ai aimé l'écriture d'Amy Hempel à peine avant d'être amoureux de son image. Elle figurait, sur une photo noir et blanc, une jeune femme dans sa trentaine séduisante, et, bien que je fusse ému par sa beauté, je ressentis immédiatement une curiosité supplémentaire pour la part de mystère qu'enfermait son visage. Plus tard, en fréquentant davantage ses textes, j'arrivai à mieux percer sa duplicité. Son art de " mentir ", de cette voix tremblée tout entière au service d'une faille secrète, atteint à un paroxysme si " fragile ", et à une si miraculeuse exactitude d'observation, qu'il arrive à renforcer la personnalité des personnages - presque toujours des femmes. Sous l'effet d'une captivante macrophotographie des moeurs, elles retrouvent une partie de leur souffle, de leur espoir en un futur chancelant, une sorte d'énergie temporaire qui peut passer pour un tremplin vers une nouvelle existence. Amy Hempel coud ses récits avec une aiguille extra-fine. Elle déploie une minutie de migraineuse. Avec des inflexions d'une subtile étrangeté, elle travaille sur des sujets de porcelaine. Je me réjouis de voir les lecteurs français découvrir son style compact, allusif, et ce " non-dit " cruel où la part de comédie le dispute à la peur de se dissoudre."Article| Amy Hempel| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Critically acclaimed master of the short story Amy Hempel’s Tumble Home is narrated by people with skewed visions of home. Not exactly crazy, they become obsessed and irrational as their inner logic leads them astray. In the title novella, a woman living in a psychiatric halfway house writes to a man she has met only once. Proceeding in brief vignettes that link and illuminate, she recounts her peculiar life with the other patients. The accretions of anecdote lead deeper and deeper into the psyche and history of the narrator, gradually revealing the reason for her urgent letter."Article| Amy Hempel| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Amy Hempel's compassion, intensity, and illuminating observations have made her one of the most distinctive and admired modern writers. In three stunning books of stories, she has established a voice as unique and recognizable as the photographs of Cindy Sherman or the brushstrokes of Robert Motherwell. The Dog of the Marriage, Hempel's fourth collection, is about sexual obsession, relationships gone awry, and the unsatisfied longings of everyday life. In "Offertory," a modern-day Scheherazade entertains and manipulates her lover with stories of her sexual encounters with a married couple as a very young woman. In "Reference # 388475848-5," a letter contesting a parking ticket becomes a beautiful and unnerving statement of faith. In "Jesus Is Waiting," a woman driving to New York sends a series of cryptically honest postcards to an old lover. And the title story is a heartbreaking tale about the objects and animals and unmired desires that are left behind after death or divorce. These nine stories teem with wisdom, emotion, and surprising wit. Hempel explores the intricate psychology of people falling in and out of love, trying to locate something or someone elusive or lost. Her sentences are as lean, original, and startling as any in contemporary fiction."Article| Amy Hempel| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "I personaggi della Hempel, feriti, irrequieti, tragici, non si lasciano distruggere da avvenimenti imprevisti, da errori e scelte sbagliate. Hanno imparato a contare su piccoli trionfi quotidiani di umorismo e ironia per trasformare le cicatrici in ragioni per continuare a vivere; e ad attingere alla riserva di forza dell'animo femminile, fatta di sincerità, capacità di emozione e di relazione."Article| Amy Hempel| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Amy Hempel ist in Deutschland eine der großen unentdeckten Stimmen der amerikanischen Literatur. Die vier schmalen Bändchen, die sie in den letzten 30 Jahren veröffentlicht hat, sind in den USA und anderen Ländern Europas bereits moderne Klassiker. Die minimalistischen Geschichten von Amy Hempel sind Kleinode, in die man hineingeworfen wird, um verändert wieder aufzutauchen. Sie sind scharfsichtige Portraits scheinbarer Nichtigkeiten. Die immer wiederkehrenden Motive sind zugleich die Grundthemen Amy Hempels: der Tod, als beständiger Begleiter, die omnipräsente Angst vor menschlichen Bindungen, der unsichere Grund, auf dem sich die Figuren bewegen, Schlammlöcher und Erdbeben, das Auftreten von Einzelgängern, die zu empfindsam sind, um das Wanken der Welt nicht zu bemerken. Diese Geschichten entfalten ihren Sog im ersten Satz, sie sind unheimlich, verstörend, immer originell und jede tritt eine Lawine los, die sich wie eine unbezahlte Rechnung im Kopf des Lesers festsetzt."Article| Amy Hempel| Statement ..."
