    1. Happy St Patrick s Day, Read Edna O Brien, why dontcha In honour of St Patrick s Day, I ve decided to review a great big Irish book I finished last month that s haunted me ever since Edna O Brien is a master of the short story These 31 tales, written over half a century, are among the most passionate and memorable I ve ever read I know I will return to them over the years.First a bit of background I tend to take short story collections for granted, reading the stories over a few months, especial [...]


    2. Inside Love s RealityThe inside is where a person loves from, it s the reality, not what they say, said Hypocrites While this could be deemed a universal truth, it seems poignant to the artist drawing a flesh and blood woman, for such a feminine creator must draw from within the woman so the reader can experience the reality of the woman s love, her pain or the many other thoughts and feelings I make a distinction here for creating a female character since she cannot be drawn from the outside ne [...]


    3. 3.5 Edna O Brien is an author I have always wanted to read but until now never have Her first book Country Girls was banned in Ireland upon its release for its depiction of female sexuality Her writing is elegantly descriptive and though their are a few stories I didn t really care for, there were some I absolutely loved.The rug was one, a rug is unexpectedly delivered to a family, or is a beautiful purple rig and they spend time trying to guess who has sent this rug that they now all loves to t [...]


    4. ora lo posso dire faccio parte di un commando per la resistenza attiva alle fascette sui libri lo strillo editoriale un nemico del popolo reo di spingere i pi ingenui ad acquisti improbabili catechizzandoli con alcune delle frasi pi stupide che mai siano state scritte , e di corrompere il senso estetico degli altri con colori a contrasto che non indosserebbe nemmeno queen elizabeth al chelsea flower show in pi spesso segue regole tutte sue, accampa dati di vendita di paesi che a nessuno verrebbe [...]


    5. Last year, when I started dipping my toes into short stories, it was clear that there seem to be 3 grandmasters of the genre Alice Munro, Grace Paley and Edna O Brien Discovering that the latter had a collection coming out that covers 5 decades of writing, I was literally jumping up and down.You needn t be a literary genius to understand why Edna O Brien achieved Grandmaster Status It s obvious from the get go She writes with enormous depth and elegance, and often needs but a few pages to get th [...]

    8. I must admit I did not read every short story in this book there are 31 since it is a library book and I must return it today But I read over half and each one was beautifully written and compelling I would a few stories between other books and they were always a welcome distraction The Love Object, The Rug The Conner Girls are particularly memorable Each story weaves a tale involving a complicated mother child relationship, or romantic love, or a coming of age struggle I d like to read the rest [...]


    9. The Love Object is a collection of short stories by Irish writer Edna O Brien that I picked up on a total whim when I was in Indigo a few weeks ago I haven t tackled a short story collection in a very long time, but I have always been incredibly fond of the medium Alice Munro I think we can all agree this woman can do no wrong makes me proud to be Canadian and Mavis Gallant are literary geniuses in my opinion, and when I dabbled in creative writing classes myself in university, I always chose to [...]



    10. I expected great things of Edna O Brien s new book, The Love Object Selected Stories And she delivers, so I ended up buying the hardcover of this stunning collection as well as the e book I prefer her lively early stories, many of which are set in Ireland, to the sophisticated stories that portray women in love with powerful men in London These heroines are often wispy and forlorn Yet O Brien s writing is always lyrical and sensual, and her development of characters is rich This collection of 31 [...]


    11. Un giorno di marzo usc il sole, si spensero i termosifoni e malgrado il vento sferzante ci dissero che la primavera era ufficialmente arrivata e che potevamo andare fuori a giocare Ci dirigemmo in massa al campo da gioco e scoprimmo con grande sorpresa che quel giorno l arbitro era Suor Imelda I luminosi narcisi di un giallo abbagliante non trovavano requie ma non avevano certo il fascino dei piccoli, timidi bucaneve che tremolavano al vento Giocammo a baseball e quando tocc a me colpire la pall [...]


    12. The Love Object una raccolta di racconti della scrittrice irlandese Edna O Brien, autrice anche della famosa trilogia delle ragazze di campagna Questi racconti parlano tutti di donne, e il filo conduttore il loro love object, oggetto d a, che in ogni storia differente ma sempre magistralmente descritto L autrice ha una prosa lirica e particolarmente ammirevole nelle descrizioni della natura The frost lay like a spell upon the street, upon the sleeping windows, and the slate roofs of the narrow h [...]


    13. Supple, sensual, heartbreaking, truthful, lyrical, musical I find O Brien s work amazing This anthology, collected from her writing over many years, shows her spunk, wit, nerve, memory, focus, and sense of smell and sight and sound and feel.Mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, religious fury and frenzy, couplings of all sorts, a bit of political sociological concern, the yearnings for so much for self and country and church and faith.I so loved so many stories, but won t go blow by blow.Suff [...]


    14. Who knows anything anyhow It is part of the uncapturable brilliance of Edna O Brien that a story can end with this line note the lack of question mark and be exactly right O Brien breaks the heart but never the spirit, conjures at once self deception and painful clarity, breaks the heart but only enough that it must carry on loving and hating its broken self The characters devastations and rebellions are the readers , like it or not, and the confluence of and contradictions between inner particu [...]


    15. Edna O Brien s The Love Object is than a short story collection, it s an encyclopedia of perfect storytelling and a retrospective on the fifty year career of a writer of exquisite finesse and pathos O Brien has taken a great deal of time over these small works of art They are finely wrought pieces with vivid details, sparingly rendered The sentences are buffed to a polish, the symbolic images a green georgette evening gown, a mossy cave, an undercooked fowl so finely worked, their seams are inv [...]


    16. O Brien explores women s experiences with love genuine, familial, and unrequited love, with some unhealthy infatuation in the mix as well The highs and lows of each relationship she explores extend from a foundation of resignation or pending doom Everything is under the surface there aren t a lot of verbs, plot twists, or cliffhangers to drive the reader forward Not a lot happenes outside of the protagonist s head It s not a style I typically like, but O Brien s prose held me through the last pa [...]


    17. Edna O Brien is a master of the short story Reading her work gives one a window not only into Ireland, but into lives that aren t usually celebrated rural women, housewives, mothers, young women trying to remake themselves and achieve O Brien s work can be exhausting when read all at once, as I did, but I do recommend picking up a few of her stories and sprinkling them into whatever else you re reading.


    18. I found it impossible to rate this book I ve read Edna O Brien s autobiography and much of her fiction Some of the stories in this collection felt dated perhaps I had read them in an earlier collection 500 pages of lives filled with bitterness and disappointment wore me down, despite the remarkable talent of the author.


    19. What a lovely, long collection of short stories about Ireland With few exceptions they do not intertwine but many of the characters are so similar to others in another story that the reader could consider it a continuation of the character s life Over fifty years of stories by a master of story telling Such a sence of place.


    20. Allunghi la mano verso il viso che hai di fronte, che ami, che odi, che temi, che ti ha tradito, che conosci a met , che desideri toccare e avere di nuovo con te, almeno per la durata di una notte di vento E la mattina, chiss Tanto non si sa comunque.


    21. Received through FirstReads.I was really excited about winning this, but ended up being really excited about finishing it Loved the book by the author that I read last year There were some very nice descriptive details in these stories, but it felt like work to read them.




    22. There are eight short stories in The Love Object Stories by Edna O Brien The first short story is titled The Love Object In this story, a divorced woman falls in love with a married man Their short affair leaves her empty and confused She wonders if he ever loved her or if she was just a woman he used to pass the time.The Love Object was the longest of all of the short stories I enjoyed it than any of the other stories I pitied the woman her name is never given and her empty life Her two childr [...]


    23. finely painted small, stirring dramas of life exquisitely expressed overarching matters of class, religion, dashed hopes, family, infidelity, and love As she watched him go down the avenue she wept, not so much for the loss though the loss was enormous as for her own foolishness in thinking that someone had wanted to do her a kindness at last Those were the last words Rafferty said to me He did not shake hands, and, as on the first morning, he raised his calloused right hand in a valediction tha [...]


    24. This is a lovely book that draws at much from its limited range as possible O Brien s subject is the private lives of Irish women, all classes and backgrounds, but most in some way dealing with a hard life or a hard romance, and steeling through.The writing is incredible Each protagonist gets a depth and an inner fire, and O Brien lays everything bare so you feel immersed in their soul and, usually, their suffering There s a warmth and compassion to the stories that are lacking in so many short [...]


    25. I am a huge fan of Edna O Brien, but I gave this book only three stars Why Because I didn t finish it.It is a collection of stories, and the ones I liked were extremely interesting and well written, as I would expect from this author However, I skipped the last four stories, because it just seemed to me that they were all incredibly redundant and uninteresting Maybe if I had just dipped in and out of the book, I wouldn t have felt this way, and who knows maybe I ll go back sometime and try to re [...]


    26. I get the impression that Irish Fiction is the British version of Southern fiction sad and hard to understand the motivations if you are an outsider I gave up after a couple hundred pages It may just be that I m not a short story person, but I wasn t motivated to seek out her longer fiction.
