Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Constructed in brutally perceptive and dazzlingly revelatory prose, this is a stunning work."--Booklist

"This breathtakingly elegant and unsentimental first novel is about passion, regret, and memory: about the psychology of the spot where recollection and loss intersect."--Details

"Extraordinary...the risks Davis takes by depriving herself of a traditional structure are enormous."--Newsday

"[The End of the Story] succeeds in...giving the reader both the story and the painful work that goes into its making, and as such it is not only beautiful, but an extraordinary and very modern achievement."--The New York Observer

Synopsis

In this work a happily settled woman attempts to piece together the fragments of a past, unresolved relationship. With compassion, wit and what appears to be candour, she seeks to reveal herself and her past. However, the vagueness of memory means that any past tale must be fiction. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Einleitungssatz
The last time I saw him, though I did not know it would be the last, I was sitting on the terrace with a friend and he came through the gate sweating, his face and chest pink, his hair damp, and stopped politely to talk to us. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Von Ein Kunde am 2. Oktober 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This book has an inflectionless prose style, that takes a little patience at first, but after awhile begins to produce a hypnotic effect. By the end of the book I was in love with the prose style. Also, the parts about the writing of the novel, which are included within the novel itself, are hilarious.

I love lydia davis. I love her surgical deconstruction of relationships, obsession and, for that matter, any and all matters of the heart. More people should buy this book and even if they don't lydia davis remains a god to us her loyal fans.

Spectacularly abstract 16. Oktober 2008
Von James Elkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is an astonishing novel. I have more or less given up writing reviews for Amazon, because (as Nicholson Baker points out) they don't seem to add to anything or create any kind of community, they just sink into the general accumulation of texts. (He was comparing Amazon with Wikipedia, where everyone's writing adds to something large.)

But I'm back again, writing for Amazon, because I think this novel needs to be remembered, and bought. There is a five-star review here that notes it's necessary to read the novel more than once. I think that is true, if you are expecting any sort of ordinary narrative. Davis has that rarest of all qualities: an original voice. She speaks plainly, in a minimalist style, and that is fairly conventional. But the use the makes of the minimalist voice (which I find myself mimicking in this review, inadvertently) is not at all usual. This is life with all its content subtracted away. The novel is about a love affair, but we are scarcely told anything about what either person looks like. We hear, in passing, that the narrator likes to identify species of grass and spiders, but we do not hear any names of grasses or spiders. She falls in love with a man, but we have no idea what kind of person he is. They are both attached to a university, but we hear next to nothing about what they study or teach. She is a translator of French, but there is no French in the book. (That is especially astonishing: think of other Francophiles, like Wallace Stevens.) Nothing has content, everything is told as her recollections of actions and places.

In this contentless, abstract world the writer's voice is all we have. We listen as she wonders whether her memories are correct, and admits that some art not. We hear her descriptions of her behavior, always written as if she were at some remove from them. When she is suffering most acutely from the absence of the man she fell in love with, we hear that she seems to see herself from a distance. That is the book's strangest moment. We have always seen her from a distance. What kind of narrator could construct a novel so impeccably abstracted from the proper names and the direct emotions of life, and then say that, in her memory, she was only abstracted in that way during a short period of grief?

The psychology of the book is absolutely without parallel. It is deeply sympathetic, sad, detached, and also, at the same time, entirely perverse and because of that perversity incomprehensible. The book is, in its own way, a masterpiece.

A Beautiful Book 7. Mai 2001
Von Naomi Himmelhoch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Lydia Davis has written a breath-taking book about how writing transforms both a writer and her subject. A wonderfully written study of how the process of creating a written record about her unlikely obsession with a younger man eventually freed her from it. I recommend this book to everyone I meet.

A Great Book for Writers 2. Oktober 1999
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

compelling and compulsive 11. Mai 2014
Von Penelope Jacks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book feverishly, almost as it felt it had been written. Many of the incidents had been in Davis' short stories which I love and feel very similar to my own experience. The sense of meaningless ecstasy, embarrassing pain, and self aware recovery were all perfectly described. I was interested in her reflections on writing and memory, work, and friendships. My only reservation was that it seemed a bit too literary at times, but this is hardly a fair criticism of a book about writing.

Interesting concept, slightly off on the delivery 30. Mai 2006
Von M. Jason Schmitt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Lydia Davis introduces an intriguing and unique concept in this story that makes you think a little bit differently while reading other novels afterward. The concept of this novel, whereby the narrator plays back an experience of love with the context of knowledge and emotions after the fact, makes you wonder how differently you would feel during past experiences, had you known what you know now. While this concept has really stuck with me for many months after reading the book, I found the story itself and depth of characters a little light and forgettable.
