Kurzbeschreibung

23. Mai 2006
A debut collection of short fiction from this National Magazine Award in Fiction finalist.

Set in a variety of Southern and Midwestern landscapes – from Missouri’s Ha Ha Tonka State Park to a crop circle at a Minnesotan farm – the stories in Between Here and the Yellow Sea excavate the ambiguous terrain of the human heart. With a forceful and compassionate voice, Pizzolatto finds beauty in loneliness as his characters attempt to bridge the gulfs between themselves and others, past and present, and, sometimes, between their inner and outer selves.

In this both heartbreaking and humorous collection, we meet a base-jumping, samurai park ranger who parachutes off the St. Louis Arch; a stained glass artist who struggles over his masterpiece and learns through great loss what his true subject will be; and a religious elementary school teacher who tries to understand her rebellious, militant son. In the title story, which first appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, an orphaned young man and his former high school football coach set out to kidnap the coach’s daughter from Los Angeles and bring her back to east Texas.

With an assured, poignant voice, Pizzolatto places us at the crossroads of memory and desire, somewhere between here and the Yellow Sea.

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

“Pizzolatto, like the great Richard Ford, is drawn increasingly to sad, even grim scenarios depicting the way people fail to connect. And, also like Ford, he expresses their dissatisfaction in precise language, drawing readers into perfectly realized, frequently unconventional scenarios…These sad, beautifully rendered stories will resonate with fans of the form.”
Booklist

"This collection is first-rate, and Pizzolatto is going to be wowing us for a long, long time to come."
–Steve Yarbrough author of Prisoners of War

“This is a wonderful book of stories by a natural writer. Nic’s beautiful, lucid prose seems to flow like water or like music....Nic knows how to write in the marrow of his bones. This will be the first of many brilliant books. Hooray for talent, that rare and lovely gift of the gods.”
–Ellen Gilchrist, author of Victory Over Japan and Nora Jane

“Pizzolatto’s powerful fiction harkens back to the golden age of short stories when O’Connor and the rest were working. He possesses an apparently unlimited imagination and the narrative skills to bring it to bear.”
–William Gay, author of Provinces of Night

“These are bold, tender, and intelligent stories. Nic Pizzolatto writes about people who don't take loss lightly; they fight it. Whether searching for a disappeared daughter or underground son or for their own abandoned illusions, Pizzolatto's characters try to retrieve and recover their bets. That they rarely succeed doesn't matter. Interesting and beautiful things happen in Between Here and the Yellow Sea.”
–Molly Giles, author of Iron Shoes

“These stories are violent, sad, and beautiful. They hang around long after you've read them, like a long kiss, or a bruise.”
–Daniel Wallace, author of Big Fish and Ray in Reverse

4.0 von 5 Sternen "An answer isn't the same thing as a solution." 23. Mai 2006
Von Luan Gaines - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Pizzolatto has compiled a series of short stories that are inspired and fresh, a mix of the disaffected, reaching between past and present in search of lost connections, fathers and sons, sons and mothers, young people searching for identity from the detritus of often chaotic childhoods. There is a contrast between the expectations of youth and the disillusionment of lives hard-lived, parents who have abandoned, inappropriate role models, the easy physical attractions of young love. Each protagonist addresses a personal crisis, craving identity in a too often unfriendly world. Some are misfits, others merely sorting through limited choices and family issues.

In "Ghost Birds", a young BASE diver seeks to reconcile the present with the fears of the past: "What we think is a gesture of freedom... is a symptom of our cage." In another ("Amy's Watch"), a young woman is trapped in an impossible conundrum, fighting the ghost of her sister for the affections of a man who has loved them both: "She would have liked to tell [her sister] of the inheritance of haunted men she left in her wake." This prose contains a particular clarity that is refreshing, the characters well defined, particularly their interior lives, the author attending to the inner dialog as well as the obvious, subtle emotional layers that render these people visual and familiar.

The title story reveals the theme of the collection: "You have to limit your longings." In search of the missing, distraction is commonplace, sobbing inappropriately at a sad movie, betrayed by our own demons while attempting the face of normalcy. Ultimately, "an answer isn't the same as a solution". Mining the intricate territory of the interior, the author's characters are riddled with ambiguities and vague yearnings, desiring change, but surrounded by dysfunctional role models, rudderless and inept at finding solutions. Each carefully wrought story contains layers of revelations, the themes universal, isolation, loneliness, abandonment, fear and confusion. And each retains a core of insight, small vignettes of everyday people caught in the complexities of life and circumstances out of their control. Luan Gaines/ 2006.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ** AMAZING LITTLE BOOK** 12. August 2011
Von James L. Woolridge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is my first book by Nic Pizzalatto. It is a book of stories in just 3000 plus kindle pages, very short. BUT..but, the writing is brilliant. Pizzalatto is one damned fine writer. While these are smiling happy stories they are so well done they draw you in to the characters. Read this one. Well worth your time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5.0 von 5 Sternen stunning and simple 17. Juni 2006
Von deus ex machina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
these stories are aching and filled not so much with longing PER SE as empty space, and characters moving through it, experiencing what comes with needing/wanting something seemingly unattainable. his characters, for the moments they're on the page, ring of truth and the human condition-which seems to be that of fleeting, yet deep, desire.

what's even MORE amazing about pizzolatto's writing is his ability to nurture the depths of his characters' spirits in the space of maybe 20 pages per story. he hits hard, deep, and fast, and paints scenes that will last in your memory for long after you close the book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I Wish... 4. Juni 2014
Von Bob, just Bob for Now, Thanks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I wish I didn't see and love True Detective prior to reading this. The brilliance of True Detective is going to be an albatross around Mr. Pizzolatto's neck for some time. I try to be completely opened minded, but when you watch the first season of True Detective I think most people will fall into the trap I did; finding it hard to judge the works separately. I can't help but wonder would I have found this book to be a 5 star if I was capable of erasing True Detective from my mind. There are some great stories in here. Between Here and The Yellow Sea is a very hard book to put down, and it has great pacing. I am going to revisit this book in a couple of months after more distance from True Detective. I am sure I went in looking for more along the line of creepy mysteries rather than the very well told stories especially the first couple.
4.0 von 5 Sternen TRUE DETECTIVE's writer dazzles with this short story collection 29. Juli 2014
Von C.B. Derrick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Pizzolatto's televised novel TRUE DETECTIVE was the impetus to read this collection of short stories, and it's quite evident that TRUE DETECTIVE wasn't a fluke. These tales from the Golf Coast region of America (so perhaps not technically Southern Gothic) takes us into the hearts, minds and stunted dreams of a cadre of damaged individuals seeking some sort of peace... or at least acceptance of and in the world they have established for themselves.

As short stories, they impressively all hit a high bar; Pizzolatto's prose invites you into the cracked world of his characters in a visual and visceral way. Many of stories linger in the front of you mind long after you've put them down, and that's exactly what you want from any piece of narrative.
