Des "shorts stories", instantanés d'ici et d'ailleurs. A feuilleter comme un livre de chevet. Quelque chose qui accompagne dans les jours d'ici.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Back in the Saddle, Back on the Road 20 janvier 2010
Par Brian Beatty - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
More than Great Dream of Heaven or Cruising Paradise, Shepard's two previous story collections for Knopf, Day Out of Days reminds me of his early prose collection The Motel Chronicles. Shepard's nameless, aimless narrators take stock of their empty lives and the world around them, then shrug and trudge on. The Beckett epigram that opens Day Out of Days is telling, indeed. Shepard's long been heralded as one of our nation's greatest playwrights. A reliable character actor, too. Perhaps it's time that we take a closer look at our nation's empty literary scene and recognize Shepard's clear-eyed tales for the welcomed gifts they are.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ruminations in Fiction 30 mai 2010
Par Doctor Moss - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I think Sam Shepard is underrated. His fiction writing is very much like his playwriting and his acting -- it all has that reflective, laconic sincerity.

To say this is fiction is misleading. It's mostly written in the first person, as autobiography, not of facts and events, but of thoughts. Many of the thoughts have to do with wandering. Many have to do with frustration with other people, especially women, but also of being unworthy of them -- an inconsistency that is just plain real. There's an impressive sincerity to Shephard's reporting of his thoughts about himself, other people, his and their faults, . . .

It's all rumination. Some of it is sad, some of it is wistful, and some of it is just rumination. If your favorite part of a baseball game is the time between the pitches, then you'll like Sam Shepard.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dry, Gritty, Searching 2 mars 2010
Par Amy Henry - Publié sur
I felt a sense of guilt as I started reading this collection of short stories by Sam Shepard. It seemed as if I was reading someone's journal, their diary, with all their personal ramblings being exposed to me, a stranger. I got over that, and went on to really enjoy this collection that contains very short stories, snippets of conversations, memories, poems, observations, and random musings. Shepard writes in the voice of a distant loner, hardened by truth and reality but still seeking, looking for a kind of lost artifact or talisman.

Some of the poems have titles, but most are simple and unadorned. Without the title (and sometimes without punctuation) you are left to figure out the point, and each reader could likely come away with a different impression.

Horses racing men
Mummies on the mend
What's all this gauze bandaging
Unraveled down the stairs
Has come apart
In here
Something without end (p. 126)

In "Rosebud, South Dakota (Highway 83 North)" he describes a deceptively simple scene:

Lakota church, "Open to Anyone", it says, but no one's here. Not a single sorry soul. And it's the Sabbath too. Imagine that. Sunday abandoned. Just constant wind ripping across the tattered yards and buried fences. Constant endless prairie breath. Like it's always been. Now and evermore. Unrelenting. Raw. And could care less about the state of the Union.

Shepard's subjects are dry, tired, lost, searching, guilty, sarcastic, sardonic, and grim. They inhabit truck stops, rest stops, desert paths and windy valleys. Remarkably, reading these doesn't feel depressing or dispiriting. Instead, it's almost like putting a story behind that stranger you noticed outside the diner's plate glass window, or hitchhiking outside of town, or passing you on the open rural road in that old dirty Ford pickup.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Shepard continues his quest 26 février 2010

Shepard continues to confront his existence with clarity and courage and wit. I was particularly curious to see how or if he'd write about his DUI arrest. He did, and approached the situation in an unexpected way. I loved this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love is in League with the Freeway 8 décembre 2012
Par T. White - Publié sur
An excellent collection of short stories, mostly road and travel based. If you have read and liked Sam Shepard's other two short story collections (Cruising Paradise and Great Dream of Heaven), you'll like this one as well. I can barely remember the first two, but this one has stuck with me, and is the best of the three.

The prose is spare and true: there are one paragraph chapters, non-lyrical poems, bits of plays, random thoughts, and what are certainly straight autobiographical entries. There is even a retold story about saving Fats Domino during Katrina (which I thought was excellent). While some of the stories do relate and build off of each other, you need to use your imagination to fill in the blank spaces.

Finally, all of the characters are on the gray side of black and white. This about sums it up (page 250):

"What you don't learn, though, is how to protect others from your own manifestations of cruelty and malice which you've learned so insidiously through skin and blood and find impossible to shake free from no matter how much you'd like to be thought of as a decent, wholesome person."

Don't look for any female characters, except on the periphery (re: Hemmingway). From mercenaries to drug abusers to has-beens and bitter old men, you won't leave feeling warm and fuzzy. But it will make you think and is well worth the read.
