Ghost stories that could happen to you 10 septembre 2007
Par Warren Keith Wright - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Why, I wondered, had I never read Alison Lurie's "Women and Ghosts"? As Joyce Carol Oates says, "One can read Lurie as one might read Jane Austen, with continual delight," whether it's her novels ("The Truth About Lorin Jones"), her fables for children ("Fabulous Beasts"), or her essays on kid-lit ("Don't Tell the Grown-Ups"). This 1994 story collection allies her winning authorial persona with the intimately supernatural, unwelcome in life but most welcome in fiction.

What spurs the spectre of a runaway wife to put the fear of matrimony into her would-be successor? Who are the real "Pool People" seen by a small girl at her obnoxious grandmother's Key West home? Why does a trick-or-treater in bunny pajamas lure a pretty, perfect woman into the darkness of "Another Halloween"? America has surely not grown slimmer since Lurie envisioned a hefty wife, dieting while her husband's abroad, seeing more and more "Fat People" wherever she goes, beckoning her to join them and eat, eat, eat.

These are not "literary" ghost stories, not even the one describing a case of metempsychosis (though the term isn't used) in Wordsworth's sheep-stocked Lake District. Even a chronicle of being stalked by a dead lover's resentful shadow-self descends from the confident oral storyteller, who knows just how to rouse disturbing uneasiness in her listeners.

Some reviewers, craving Gothic goose bumps, cited "déjà lu" and found "Women and Ghosts" short on fright. (Wait till their negative soul mate tracks and takes them down as one did to "The Double Poet.") As the pages turned I too got the creepy conviction that I recognized these nine tales, somehow. But how? I don't forget what I read: I work as a proofreader. (When I go to post this, what if "I" have reviewed it already?) But though I may have met up with "The Highboy" before (a predatory heirloom bent on its self-preservation), that did not reduce what the French call its "frisson" one volt. You'll feel it too.

Ghosts of Lurie's novels 29 janvier 2009
Par Dr. J. Shoaf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I just finished off a binge-reading/rereading of Alison Lurie's novels and Women and Ghosts was the cherry on top. For one thing, back in 1969's Real People the "sensitive lady novelist" Janet Belle Smith was planning to write ghost stories, in particular the very story that turns up here as "Fat People." Lurie's novels usually pay such fine attention to detail that the macabre elements are not so noticeable, but here she gets to turn her sorceress impulses loose. The stories are not so much thrillers--what happens seems almost inevitable in most of them--but very funny and wise.

These stories also allow us to catch up with characters from the novels. Who would have thought that Janet Smith's eldest son would marry that child of LA beatniks, Astarte Tyler, from The Nowhere City. Or that bratty Charley Fenn, 6 years old in Love and Friendshio, would someday find happiness with solemn Silly Zimmern, 9 years old in War Between the Tates?

So I would give this 5 stars for a Lurie afficionado, but maybe fewer for someone who is looking for a simple thrill.

The Unexpected Fright of the Familiar 19 juillet 2006
Par Rosa Lina - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I adore this collection. Lurie examines the power inherent in personal artifacts as she spins ghostly tales about our relationships with the inanimate objects of our lives. From a satinic satin slip to a highboy with a bad attitude--these stories create worlds that are at once familiar and strange and wondrous.
Lurie has a different outlook -- so beware 10 août 2014

I've been reading Lurie's novels since "No Where City" was published, but these are the first of her short stories I've read. These stories are typical Lurie, just shorter. She still has plenty of time to stick a sharp stick in some eyes. If you've enjoyed her novels you'll like this collection. I think some readers don't understand that Lurie writes for grown ups.

Amateurishly written and juvenile stories. 4 avril 2005
Par MAB - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"Women and Ghosts" is amateurish, misleading, and unexciting. The nine short stories author Alison Lurie wrote are equivalent to an amateur writer, who did not have his/her story edited. At times, they are insulting ("Fat People," is an excellent example), the female characters all have the same manner of speaking and coping with their problems (and the men think they are "being ridiculous"), and the ghosts come across as hallucinations of the female characters. Lurie's writing is so bad, that I feel embarrassed for her. The grammar is horrible, and while she attempted to write in a conversational style, it came across as if she did not know how to form a readable sentence. The stories are so asinine, that I could not help but roll my eyes and loathe Lurie for portraying women as "weak creatures" who see apparitions when under stress (I say "apparitions," as the ghosts did not haunt, but just "appear"). I was hoping for a super natural ghost thriller, but instead, I got an amateur writer who wrote nine short stories about folly. I do not recommend.
