    read doc ☆ What We Talk About When We Talk About Love Stories ☆ Paperback What We Talk About When We Talk About Love StoriesI'll announce the cliche of my loving this book before you beat me to itI'm an overeducated mock contemplative early twenty something with a penchant for strong male voices despite my feminist leanings and a distaste for anything too sentimental I was raised in the tradition of Show Don't Tell and hold this closer than even my favorite teddy whose name is Atticus My middle name is Minimalism My other middle name is Ooh that sounds prettyWith that out of the way yes of course I loved this volume and probably for the reasons you'd expect Raymond Carver's name should be in lights Everyone who likes this book is going to tell you that one of Carver's strengths is his knack for underst

    read doc ☆ What We Talk About When We Talk About Love Stories ☆ Paperback What We Talk About When We Talk About Love StoriesMilan Kundera in his short story collection Laughable Loves talks about the inevitable absurdity that revolves around the highly misunderstood feeling of Love that begins with innocent stargazing but later tempt numerous meteors to destroy the vulnerable abode of lovers Promises are ditched mushy definitions are torn apart and even when other things remain eual or uneual; heshe still loves me just doesn’t matter any What remains is this filthy carcass of emotions that some people tag along wherever they go while some bury it in the most unwholesome style in the graveyard of their hearts A laughable business and some compelling stories which underwhelmed me initially but after reading Carver’s What we Talk about when we talk about Love I reconsidered my reaction towards Kundera’s book and now I c

    read doc ☆ What We Talk About When We Talk About Love Stories ☆ Paperback What We Talk About When We Talk About Love StoriesI first became interested in this book when I read Haruki Murakami’s memoir What I Talk About When I Talk About Running Any book that can inspire Murakami to steal most of the line must be worth reading Mustn’t it? Well I thought so though it took me some time to get around to this collection of 17 short stories The cover of the Vintage Classics version I read is sparse and the blurb gave nothing away Ah well in for a penny Originally published in 1981 the prose is le
