I am not sure what makes this a book to read Generously about 23 of Typical is pointless at best This is front loaded so by the time you get to the things worth perusing you ve gone through the bulky first section full of the sort of casual racism that doesn t feel mood setting or like commentary but just exists either for the sake of shock or because the writer just doesn t seem to find it problematic You ve read the briefer second section full of characters no one wants to meet sketched out in what feel like exercises than completed thoughts You ve had Mr Irony foisted upon you twice whose story combines that casual racism and terrible characters all in one though I do like the idea of being a paid travel companion and I would sign up in a heartbeat It s all fairly unlikable stories with a fairly unlikable narrator In short you ve slogged through a lot of book to get to the good partAnd the good part well it s maybe unfair to call it good so much as better There s some surrealness There s some melancholy There s some haunting Flood fixes a surreal beauty in one s head with its imagery The melancholy of the final story really builds a mood and a setting But we also have whatever Wait is We also have the creative writing exercise of Texas And we have and characters made problematic to be also made sympatheticThis is ultimately a huge piece of Powell s failure for me in a post Charlottesville America is there anyone literate who wants a sympathetic portrait of a self proclaimed piece of crud good ol boy In 2019 is there any reason for such dead female characters or such cavalier misogyny and homophobia In White Supremacist Foreigners In Concentration Camps America do we still laugh at the deeply racist caricature in The Modern Italian There s a time to be edgy and push boundaries and there s a time to create ghoulish characters with ghoulish thoughts and let them exist But a skilled hand is needed to be able to express these characters without approving them A definitely context is reuired A sustained focus on these pieces without a clear statement to be made doesn t come across as anything but an archaic misanthrope still wrapping themselves in a weird pride of place that always seems to come from the south and its stories doubly so with its 1991 release date putting the text nearly 30 years outside of the modern lexicon It s incredibly hard to believe this work as commentary and the commentary there might be is pretty hidden at best It s hard to want to give it attention Sammy Keyes and the Cold Hard Cash Sammy Keyes read

In every cheesy horror or sci fi movie involving aliens or demons or pod people there s the almost obligatory scene where the heroine having successfully slain the last of the evil critters falls into the arms of his or her sidekickromantic interestsignificant other only to come to the sickening realization that the person they are embracing has been taken over by the forces of darkness The music crescendos in ominous cacophony the camera zooms in as the horrifying realization dawns across the protagonist s faceAs I read this collection of stories the third book by Padgett Powell I experienced that exact same sinking feeling Here s an author whose first novel Edisto was one of the most enchanting books I had read in 1984 the year it was published So when I came across this collection in the second hand book store buying it seemed like a no brainer Caveat lector As it says in those indigestible mutual fund prospectuses that clog my mailbox daily past success is no guarantee of future performance In this case the warning signals were loud and clear Had I just taken the time to do a little skimming in the store I would have surely seen the warning signs Stories with titles like Mr Irony Renounces Irony Dr Ordinary General Rancidity Mr Nefarious Miss Resignation These sound like homework assignments from a graduate writing workshop in hell and that s pretty much the way they read as well Mr Powell apparently thinks this kind of thing may be passed off as writing Dr Ordinary found solace in nothing He found his shoes untied during surgery He found his mother once when she was in her sixties naked in the bathtub calling for a fresh martini He found bluebirds too far south He found pies too sweet to eat He found God with no difficulty but locating his belief another matter And so on for a total of three wretched pages and sixty repetitions of the phrase He found If this kind of thing strikes you as insufferable you are unlikely to find General Rancidity which is just of the same with the verb run instead of the verb find any betterIt gets worse Four of the stories are named for states Kansas Texas South Carolina and Florida Here is the first 30% or so of Texas I fell off the lightning rod I entered the sweepstakes I lost control I became beautiful I charmed a ueen I defied gravity I moved mountains I bowled I wept mourned moped and sped about town in a convertible progressively irascing the gendarme until I was charged with exhibitionist speed My feelings about this toxic insult to the intelligence may be summed up as followsDr Giltinan found this book to be worthless dreck Or if you preferI wanted to vomit
