Kurzbeschreibung

5. Juli 2012
Daniel Woodrell is able to lend uncanny logic to harsh, even criminal, behaviour in his wrenching first collection of short fiction. Desperation - both material and psychological - motivates his characters. A husband cruelly avenges the murder of his wife's pet; an injured rapist is cared for by a young girl, until she reaches breaking point; a disturbed veteran of Iraq is murdered for his erratic behaviour; an outsider's house is set on fire by an angry neighbour. There is also the tenderness and loyalty of the vulnerable in these stories - between spouses, parents and children, siblings and comrades in arms - which brings the troubled, sorely tested cast of characters to vivid, relatable life.

Pressestimmen

His language is complex, poetic, strange and beautiful, conjuring up the misty fields and woods of the Ozarks, and the fiercely independent people who live there. Josh Lacey, Guardian wonderful, savage narratives...remarkable even by Woodrell's soaring standards Irish Times tales of horror and desperation that'll leave you reeling. In a good way. Shortlist 'Woodrell is a marvellous writer' Roddy Doyle In a tight navigation of narrative voice, Woodrell manages to turn candid detachment into a form of rough poetic truth, even though the lives of his characters remain far removed from the world of literary sentiment. TLS 'Woodrell writes in an almost biblical idiom, which makes the brutality of his stories shocking... These are timeless tales of humans capable of compassion but also monumental violence.' Leyla Sanai, Independent 'gripping...Woodrell's folk are as separate in their rituals and customs as any of Tolkein's mythical creations...Woodrell whittles his stories into shape with a serrated knife, and while the language of his characters is a constant surprise with those oblique turns-of-phrase...the curious sideways progression of his plots is what I find most enrapturing.' George Pendle, Financial Times Woodrell writes about violence and dark deeds better than almost anyone in America today, in compact, musical prose that doesn't dwell on visceral detail. An unerring craftsman...Every story is loaded with gems...Most of the stories deal with the darkest recesses of the human heart, and once you start reading them you can't stop. Donald Ray Pollock, New York Times Woodrell writes a striking prose that lopes from clause to clause like William Faulkner's...he recalls writers such as Cormac McCarthy, Flannery O'Connor and the Faulkner of Sanctuary in his ability to transform crime into literature. John Dugdale, Literary Review Each story is a stylized dark allegory...The language is sparse yet majestic, deftly describing mountains, canyons and creek beds. Theresa Munoz, Scottish Sunday Herald He has moved beyond the noir of his earlier work into something that encompasses a greater spectrum of understanding. He has cemented his role as one of America's greatest writers...THE OUTLAW ALBUM is an idiosyncratic, lyric, stunning collection of stories. It is one of the most important collections of short fiction produced in this country in over fifty years. William Hastings, Industrial Worker Book Review ...It's a terrific book...If you can cope with macabre and shop-soiled side of life, then this is 21st-century short story writing of the highest calibre. Telegraph online Delivered in a voice as rich and thick with authenticity as any found this side of William Faulkner, Woodrell unfurls a parade of small people and their half-broke lives, each one shaped, and usually cracked, by the aftermath of some tragedy, but enduring, keeping on, as if breath itself, or simple existence, is its own reward... Irish Examiner

I just love the short stories of Daniel Woodrell. They always have a rural touch and showing a lot of sympathy for the lost and struggling souls out there.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent collection by a master of the short story. 19. Oktober 2011
Von Thomas Pluck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Daniel Woodrell has been called a regional writer. That's what we call writers who don't write about suburban Connecticut. It's insulting and dismissive, and I'd burn John Cheever's stories for light to read this collection by.
He writes with the artistic efficiency of poetry without artifice, and knows exactly where to begin and end a tale. The rage of class, the inequality that dare not speak its name, begins and ends this collection, perfect bookends for 12 tales of people who've lost something, and try to find what it was, how to get it back, or just how it was stolen from them.
I could have read this in an evening, but chose to savor them. They bring you to a place in the mind. I've never been to the Ozarks, and I may never visit outside of a national park, having read these tales, but I felt like I drove through, stopped for a slice of pie and chatted up a lifelong local who told me the tales of the town that form its mythology, giving me a sliver of understanding the strong bonds of family and place that define its people.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Best For Those Who Like It Very Dark 15. Juni 2012
Von Someone Else - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Look at the cover art. What do you see? Barren landscape. Dead grass and dead trees beneath a darkening sky. When you look at the interior landscapes of Woodrell's characters, what will you see? About the same. Storms, bleakness, dead things.

Woodrell is a child of the Ozarks. He writes what he knows, and he writes it well. But after a handful of stories, he starts to sound like One-Note Johnny. He may play it on different instruments, but it's still the same note -- Ozark Dark.

Once you figure out it's never going to end well, you begin reading with mental breath bated. This seems like a nice little story...wonder when the girl's going to hack her mother's neck open with a meat cleaver... Which, I suppose, is the purpose of the genre.

Fans of the bleak and the noir have written laudatory reviews of this collection. If this is not your usual fare but you want to see what Woodrell can do, I'd steer you toward his novel, Winter's Bone. It showcases his writing chops and has more appeal for mainstream readers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bet You've Never Seen a Family Album Like This Before 13. Oktober 2011
Von Martin Zook - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Outlaw in this album is tantamount to outlier...for the most part.

Well, ok: There is the story of the guy who killed his neighbor, multiple times, and the 17 year old girl kidnapped while mowing a yard, and the jockey beat with 2 x 4s before being left on the railroad track, the guy who rode with Quantrill and Coleman Younger, and the guy who burned his neighbor's house down because it blocked his bed-ridden father's view of a river. So, yeah, these actions, and others Woodrell recounts here, technically are criminal activities, the actions of outlaws.

But each of these characters have been rooted in mainstream Ozark society. Good people. Good neighbors. Good parents. They became outlaws when they were pushed to the periphery of their world. It's important to recognize that while browsing through this album Woodrell presents these characters to us not just as people, but as characters in whose minds we're comfortable because of the beauty of Woodrell's prose, and because in a twisted way they react to the world in a way the reader accepts, even as there's a voice in the back of our mind shouting: no, no, no.

The stories are narrated from within the mind of either the subject, or someone close to the action described. Woodrell makes the reader quite comfortable in the minds of his characters. Shooting a neighbor because he shot your dog doesn't seem so outlandish. Nor does pushing a sexual predator to his death. I found myself wondering as I read: just how far removed are these characters from those of us living closer to the center of acceptable norms?

And as every good short writer should, Woodrell twists each story at the end. These are revelations that galvanize each story, often to the point where the reader has to take a breath and stop, such as the revelation at the end of The Horse in our History.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am no fan of Woodrell's writing. I also recently acquired The Bayou Trilogy and cannot get into it if it was the last book on earth. When Woodrell writes long, it seems to me, his writing gets flabby. There's lots of dialogue and explanation that does not advance the story, in this reader's eyes, anyway.

That's not the case in Outlaw Album. The writing often is a stream of poetry. With the proverbial few brush strokes, tone, and other artistic touches, Woodrell makes these outliers authentic and credible.

I have two regrets after reading this album: 1) that Woodrell doesn't write this well when he writes novels; and 2) that this book is so thin.

Come Christmas, I'll definitely include this one in my box of books to family and friends.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dark and Riveting Short Stories 12. Oktober 2011
Von Bonnie Brody - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Daniel Woodrell is widely known for the movie adaptation of his novel, Winter's Bone, which won the Sundance Film Festival's Best Picture Prize in 2010. He has just published his first book of short stories, The Outlaw Album, a collection of twelve dark and riveting stories.

"Desperation - both material and psychological- motivates his characters." There is an element of moral decay and hopelessness to these stories, most taking place in the rural area of the Ozarks. I found a certain similarity in theme to the great writer, Donald Ray Pollock. Both writers attended the Iowa Writers' Workshop.

The Echo of Neighborly Bones is a haunting story of a man who murders his neighbor for killing his wife's dog. Once his neighbor is dead, he kills him over and over again in different ways - as though his anger cannot be assuaged.

I found Twin Forks to be the most powerful story in the collection. It begins, "A cradle won't hold my baby. My baby is two hundred pounds in a wheelchair and hard to push uphill but silent all the time. He can't talk since his head got hurt, which I did to him. I broke into his head with a mattocks and he hasn't said a thing to me nor nobody else since." The baby is the narrator's uncle, her mother's brother. He is a serial rapist who the narrator catches raping a coed in the barn. The narrator, too, has been a victim of her uncle's incestuous rapings. She beats his head in and then must care for him in his vegetative state. There comes a time when she realizes that even in a wheel chair and not talking, he remains evil.

Florianne is a haunting story of a man whose seventeen year-old daughter was kidnapped eleven years ago. His world is comprised of his trying to figure out who the kidnapper is. He suspects that it must be someone he knows or it could be anyone. His world is consumed by his suspicions.

In Back Step, Daren is at home recuperating from injuries he received in the war in the middle east. His mother is dying of cancer and Darden is plagued by memories of death and devastation that he witnessed. His big job at home is to kill a cow that has a broken leg, and then to dispose of the cow's body by burning it.

Night Stand is one of the stronger stories in the collection. One night as Pelham and his wife lay asleep, a naked man appears at the foot of their bed growling. Pelham grabs a knife that happens to be on his night stand and stabs the growling man twice, killing him. He later finds out that that the man he killed is a disturbed veteran and also the son of a childhood friend. Pelham obsesses over the knife - how did it find its way to his night table?

Two Things is a powerful story. Cecil has been a bad egg all his life. Currently, he is in jail for thievery. He also has a history of violence. A woman who works with him in some educational or social work capacity in jail, visits Cecil's father and shows him a book of poetry that Cecil has written. She believes that Cecil has a rare talent and wants Cecil's father to allow Cecil to come home and live with him as part of his probation. Many of the poems are about crimes that Cecil has committed against his father. The woman believes that these rage-filled poems are amends for his wrong-doings. Cecil's father isn't quick to believe that Cecil has really changed and does not want Cecil living with him.

I enjoyed Dream Spot a lot and it still haunts me. Janet asks Dalyrimple to stop and pick up a female hitchhiker. As Dalyrimple prepares to do this, Janet begins to have delusions that this unknown woman is the love of Dalyrimple's life. A simple act of picking up a hitchhiker leads to tragic consequences.

In Returning the River, a man on parole from jail burns down his neighbor's house so that his dying father can regain his view of the river which the neighbor's house has obscured.

The stories in this collection are raw and disturbing, leaving the reader with questions and a sense of being creeped out. They create goose bumps and a sense of uneasiness. The characters seem to have no moral center and are lost to what we think of as `normal'. Woodrell has a natural way of creating an ambiance of what it is like to be mentally ill or live outside the circle of normalcy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of America's best writers 29. Dezember 2011
Von John Augsbury - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is some some of the finest writing coming out of America today. I read a lot and this is the only writer who I will finish reading a passage and it's like poetry and I read it aloud for my wife to enjoy. It is no nonsense writing and goes straight to your gut. Read one of Woodrell's books and you will be sold. Daniel please keep writing as you are great.
I will let other reviewers describe his work.
