Kurzbeschreibung

Juli 2008
Loverboys is the eagerly awaited new book by Ana Castillo, the acclaimed author of So Far from God: a collection of stories that display her unique perspective on the joys and sorrows of love. Here is the experience of love captured in its wildly varying modes, from rapturous beginnings to melancholy middles to bittersweet ends, and in its equally varying configurations - man and woman, man and man, woman and woman. From the infectious moodiness of "Loverboys" to the high comic spirits of "La Miss Rose" the murderously funny gender-war payback of "Vatolandia, " Castillo covers the waterfront of contemporary romance.

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

A collection of short stories about the seductive, vibrant, often defiant lives of lovers, not all of them boys. In "La Ronde," women fall for women, for men, for both, and explore the complex extension of this love in their own families. In "Vatolandia," an independent-minded woman creates a critical system in which to classify the men she dates. And in the title story a woman muses at the hypocrisy of life while mourning the departure of her latest boyfriend over drinks in a gay bar. Though the women in these stories have their fair share of heartache, they refuse to be victims. As they face their challenges head-on, they unknowingly shape their own destinies. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

5.0 von 5 Sternen A box of delights, to suit many different tastes 17. Dezember 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I recommend the stories highly. Think of them as a box of Turkish Delight: best savored one piece at a time. Eat the whole box in one sitting and you're liable to make yourself sick. Read them singly, with breaks in between, and you'll appreciate each story for its own wit, charm, chutzpah. You may not love every story, but you'll definitely find that one or two sticks with you.
My personal favorite is "Crawfish Love," whose protagonist has the knack of reading a woman's shoe size at a glance. We see how upward mobility can make you overlook what's most important.
Castillo demonstrates her command over both the art and the craft of writing.

The stories are as lifeless as the prose. What a disappointment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Transcendent 11. Dezember 1996
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
With these stories, Ana Castillo enters the hearts of humanity and forces us to deal with sexuality with astonishing freedom.
I had been enamored by her Mexican-American maidens of the past, now defiantly she refuses to be pigeon-holed as just a Chicana and transcends all concepts of conventional wisdom in literature, love and the everlasting.
We need more writers to bridge these gaps in our psyche.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lovergirls would be a better title 16. Juni 2001
Von "the_drone" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a good book of stories maligned by bad editorial design. Please take my advice and read it in the opposite order in which the stories are arranged. Short story books should always start with the best stories up front, and the best stories in this collection are towards the end. The high comic spirit of "La Miss Rose" is definitely the gem of the book, with a surprising ending that doesn't feel like a resolution but like a new start; it made me want to know more about the three characters in the story. I was also profoundly affected by "Conversations with an Absent Lover on a Beachless Afternoon," which contains very powerful writing, including segments that appear to be autobiographical in nature. Try the short vignettes: two as short as a paragraph and one, "Foreign Market," seems as complete as any story despite its brevity. Try "Vatolandia." Then try the rest. You'll savor then Ana Castillo's rare gift for invention. She's a really good writer. And she happens to be Chicana.

4.0 von 5 Sternen lovely and fulfilling 29. November 2003
Von Adrienne Hughes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Ana Castillo explores her unique perspective on the joys and sorrows of love in all of its manifestations: woman and woman, man and man, woman and man. It was funny, heartbreaking, and beautifully written. There were a couple of stories that were rather slow; however, there were other stories written so well (for instance "Loverboys and "La Miss Rose"), that one will definitely want to read them more than once. This book takes you into the realm of the Latino world with wit and grace.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Partially Gay 20. März 2014
Von Microcosmos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
She specializes in Gay men only and vulgarizes Lesbians in her work while she acts like an on looker in that Queer world.
