    review Music for Wartime 100 The best short story collections contain a paradox while short in print length they can contain material of such complexity and meatiness thus reuiring effort on the part of a reader than novels of same size Such is the case here Usually there is at least one story that makes the eyes roll the impatience accelerate but not here Several of the stories do have music as an element but they are handled in such a way as to demonstrate an inside

Rebecca Makkai ô 0 review review Music for Wartime 100 Named a must read by the  Chicago Tribune O Magazine  BuzzFeed   The Huffington Post   Minneapolis Star Tribune  and  The L MagazineNamed one of the best short story collections of 2015 by Bookpage and Kansas City StarRebecca Makkai’s first two novels The Borrower and The Hundred Year House have established her as one of the freshest and most imaginative voices in fiction Now the award winning writer whose stories have appeared in four consecutive editions of The Best American Short Stori. I have already mentioned on GR probably a few too many times how I feel about short stories I am reluctant to read them am often happily surprised at how much I like some of them when I finally get round to reading them kick myself for being reluctant to read them and then want to read a novel by the author of the good short stories I have just read Which pretty much sums up my reaction to the stories in Music for Wartime Some of these stories are stunning and some are very good and some are ok but overall the collection was well worth reading Makkai is a great writer has a uirky sensibility and is surprisingly versatile in her use of characters settings and time frames I especially loved the title story told from the perspective of a young teenage boy whose parents immigrated from Roumania to the US in 1941 and who is driven to feel the losses his father suffered And I really liked The November Story which is told from the perspective of a woman who makes a reality tv show that is really uite far from reality Another favourite was Cross about a woman who returns home from being away for a few weeks to find a shrine to a dead motorcyclist on her front lawn And to emphasize how versatile Makkai s talent is I also really liked Couple of Lovers on a Red Background in which the narrator recounts her encounter with Bach who appeared in her apartment in New York a year or so after 911 surreal but worked really well There were a couple of stories that fell flat for me but I suppose that s the benefit of short stories they were uickly over and I was on to a better story And now that I ve finished Makkai s stories I really want to read her two novels Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an opportunity to read advance copy

Late to the party on this brilliant collection and new to this acclaimed author s writing Now I see what all the buzz is about I read her stories in awe knowing I will never be able to match her ability to conceive such layered rich stories Of the 17 stories in this book I only skimmed one of them I was entranced by the rest Makkai s prose is elouent and assured but never too dense Her dialog is spot on as are her observations of human nature how does one so young have this gift for knowing people so well She moves effortlessly between historical stories to contemporary ones and this flash editor was thrilled to find some linked vignettesJust one of the many gorgeous passages Some people live their whole lives according to the laws of probability If there s a one in six thousand chance of getting hit by lightning they won t They won t win the lottery either Because someone like Chapman will Someone whose stars made strange and intricate patterns at the moment of his birthThe theme of war connects many of the stories especially WW II in Bulgaria Some of the details in her stories are autobiographical As Makkai seeks to understand her complex history the reader is witness to her intelligence and gift with words and story I will for sure read of her work Highly recommend to short story lovers
