    eBook ç Airships ç Paperback Download Airshipsuote from Escape to Newark my favorite in the collection Once he prayed the Lord to shorten his member and turn his testicles to ash He viewed her as a sort of rabid hippopotamus cornering him in one bad dream after another And she smoked five packs a day often as not an ember between her lips as she rutted above him spitting out fire all over him on the arrival of her moment The last horror was when she thought she needed a child She wanted to call it Buck or Francine depending She got melancholy and cried huge tears because nothing took She had her heart attack trying again Not only did she die on the spot but he thought she was asleep and suffered her weight until he smelled something odd This story includes a spaceship and a trip to not so far out outer space with a landing in you guessed it Newark New Jersey You have to love Barry's earthy land of cotton black humor 20 short stories collected here and published as part of the 1980s Vintage Contemporaries series All of a sudden B

    eBook ç Airships ç Paperback Download Airships The easiest place to have wit is in the presence of another’s needBoy oh boy there are a lot of wonderful books out there Did you guys know this? It's true I picked up Airships out of that same strange magnetic pull which makes you feel compelled to engage a stranger in conversation in a bar or on a sidewalk for reasons not explained by physical attraction And to be honest I don't find this book's cover particularly appealing and the gr blurb about it leaves a number of somethings to be desired However I found myself tracking it down and read it mostly over a series of cigarette breaks at work and exhausted pajama'd sprawls on the couch just before nodding off I think this approach was better than my usual habit of gorging myself on short story collections in two or three sittings tops Working a tedious repetitious job I w

    eBook ç Airships ç Paperback Download AirshipsWhen I opened this book of stories I figured I was in for a healthy helping of Grit Lit tales of backwoods habitués eating varmint and living with violence like a kissin' cousin Works in the key of Daniel Woodrell Ron Rash Harry Crews et al Barry Hannah blew me awayIn this collection of 20 stories there are certainly pieces centered around mid to late century marginalized members of southern society; there's also a handful of fantastic works employing the American Civil War as the setting Behold the Husband in His Perfect Agony might be the best five page story I’ve read in an age – but there are enough stories between the covers that show Hannah’s amazing range Post apocalypse weird science stream of conscience comedic – Hannah nails them all sometimes mixing styles and genres to impressive outcome “Testimony of Pilot” is the longest story of the collection and has the reader guessing the

    eBook ç Airships ç Paperback Download AirshipsBarry Hannah came very close to be counted as my 'new' author I discovered in 2017 through Goodreads recommendations When he's good he's every bit as good as the other great American short story writers like Raymond Carver Flannery O'Connor or Robert Coover His style has a bit of the bleakness of O'Connor the loneliness of Carver and the subversive exuberance of Coover yet Hannah in this first volume of stories I read from him is uniue and different from his peers In the introduction to the collection Richard Ford sources Hannah's individual voice in the streak of magic realism that is so uncharacteristic of mainstream American Lit I lost almost all my footnotes from individual stories but that's all right because what strikes me in particular about this debut volume are

    eBook ç Airships ç Paperback Download AirshipsThe late Barry Hannah was unuestionably a good writer His versatility was amazing The characters that inhabit these stories are soldiers tennis pros cannibals and high school band members Most of them are not very likable They say and do nasty shocking things They are starchy and opinionated and take some getting used to which is why I think Hannah works better in the long form His magic and sly humor take a while to creep up on you ui

    eBook ç Airships ç Paperback Download AirshipsThe writing in Airships is unlike anything I've encountered Hannah writes like he was raised on a steady diet of Faulkner Raymond Carver and perhaps strangely George Saunders Moments of tenderness abutting hysterical filth The stories about uadberry and French Edward are among the best short stories I've read
