    Kindle Daisy Johnson  Fen Kindle â  Fen EpubA collection of short stories as a literary debut which are really difficult to classify but are impressive They are set in the fens The fenlands cover parts of East Anglia Cambridgeshire and southern Lincolnshire I am a Lincolnshire lad I wasn’t born or brought up in the fens but I know them fairly well One thing you do get a lot of in the fens is eels not uite as many as there used to be Coincidentally I w

    Kindle Daisy Johnson  Fen Kindle â  Fen EpubDaisy Johnson's first novel Everything Under was one of the highlights of this year's Man Booker longlist so I was very keen to get hold of a copy of this collection of stories which is also very accomplished for such a young writerThis collection is slippery liminal and atmospheric blending fairytale elements with the lives of real people and an earthy sexuality The most impressive and fully formed story is The Scattering which is also the longest Its narrator is the younger sister of a warring pair of twins one of whom tells her stories that match others in this collection Like those

    Kindle Daisy Johnson  Fen Kindle â  Fen EpubI came to this book after reading Daisy Johnson’s wonderful Everything Under – a book I described alliteratively as a “literary novel of the liminal language leaving and legend longlisted for the 2018 Man Booker prize”Many reviews of that book have I feel concentrated on the legend part an even within that legend part on the G

    Kindle Daisy Johnson  Fen Kindle â  Fen EpubI read Fen on the back of the 2018 Booker shortlisted Everything Under Fen was written some two years previously Its a collection of short stories and had received praise from a relatively small number of readersThe stories are in many ways striking than the better known Everything Under and this is in part the nature of short stories that cannot meander Sarah Hall's term for the forgiving nature of longer novelsDaisy Johnson doesn’t meander here; the majority of the stories are striking and shocking and certainly mystical Daisy Johnson has a fertile imagination and a dark side it would appear My favourite line is taken from How To FK A Man You Don’t Know “Talking about Ira and the Booker shortlist You think this makes him knowing and intellectual”60 I heard Daisy Johnson talking at Waterstones Covent Garden in September 2018

    Kindle Daisy Johnson  Fen Kindle â  Fen EpubIt is going to be very difficult to knock this off the spot of best book of the year for me I have always enjoyed books set around harsh landscapes am I the only person to find Wuthering Heights a 'cosy' novel? and that is part of what this book is set on the flat english Fenlands is It also appeals to the small townvillage girl in me The writing is beautiful and made the elements of magic injected into most of the stories completely plausible as well as being magical each was so human Reading this was a joy I had to stop reading to save some for the next evening My particular favourites were 'How to Fuck a Man You Don't Know' and 'Language' Each story I read I found myself cursing my imagination for not coming up with such simple and natural ideas for myself I perceive 'Language' 'Starver' 'A Bruise the Shape and Size of a Door Handle' and 'A Heavy Devotion' as mythical fairytales and know I shall repeatedly re read them as such Not

    Kindle Daisy Johnson  Fen Kindle â  Fen EpubSome nice writing but this was unfortunately another letdown for me though if magical realism is your thing you might find some stories to enjoy here For me the stories ended up being pretty repetitive with protagonists which became interchangeable as the collection went on Like some other reviewers have mentioned I feel like this could have been enjoyable if there were fewer stories but they were fleshed out as a few of them definitely had potential

    Kindle Daisy Johnson  Fen Kindle â  Fen EpubIt is a debut collection by a loosely related short stories They are all set in the east part of England with its plains canals river estuaries and pylons distorting the horizontality of the place Miss Johnston’s artistic treatment of the area her imagination transforms it into weary dark atmospheric setting This is the place were young girls are coming of age or becoming mothers without having the time to grow The border between people and animals are fluid as well And one cannot easily escape This sense of place is very strong feature of this collectionThe overwhelming feeling i had reading it as if i digested a bunch of psychedelic mushrooms which i actually never tried so cannot compare and going through a series of weird and often unpleasant dreams Her writing is very imaginative All her sentences work perfectly But the ideas and symbols of the stories a
