  2. Marie NDiaye has a background in linguistics, and does it ever show while her prose is on the surface rather simple, her narrative technique is truly magnificent Although remaining in the third person throughout all of the stories collected in All My Friends, NDiaye is able to tap into the psychological mindsets of the stories main characters, still remaining detached yet observant, similarly skillful although by no means in terms of style in this type of omniscient narration as Woolf was in Mrs [...]


  3. In this collection of five unrelated short stories, which was originally published as Tous mes amis in 2004 and will be released in English translation by Two Lines Press in May, Marie NDiaye portrays the lives of several ordinary but deeply flawed and emotionally distant individuals who are at crises in their relationships with those closest to them In the opening story, All My Friends , a divorced schoolteacher employs one of his former students as his housemaid and becomes infatuated with her [...]


  4. When I was shelving this book, I almost clicked the poetry tag without thinking about it That s how gorgeous NDiaye s prose is What a beautiful, tragic little book This is also one of the most difficult short story collections I ve ever read Not in a bad way, just in that it required effort and concentration on my part There is no gradual introduction to any of the stories instead the reader is dropped right into the middle of the story sometimes in the middle of a conversation with no idea who [...]


  5. probably 3.5 stars, really.well what a peculiar and haunting collection of stories NDiyae is an elegant, lovely writer there s a lyrical or poetic quality to her writing her ideas are really dark and twisty, which makes for quite a juxtaposition to how beautiful her storytelling feels the stories were troubling the boys , in particular, was quite unnerving while i read the english translation, i feel jordan stump, serving as translator, has done an excellent job as the moodiness and emotion of e [...]


  6. All My Friends is a book of short stories by French author Marie NDiaye The second book released by Two Lines Press a new publisher associated with The Center for the Art of Translation in California, it is translated by Jordan Stump I d heard many good things about NDiaye, and Stump seems to have an affinity for translating unusual narratives, so I was looking forward to reading this book.Which makes it hard to admit that on first reading I found the collection somewhat disappointing The five s [...]


  7. The five short stories in this excellent collection all deal with ordinary people facing the shortcomings of their lives.The narrator of the title story is lost and lonely He tries to connect with his maid a former student , his estranged wife, an old acquaintance, and the maid s husband a former student of his His attempts fail He tries to enter a conversation, But no one hears my wispy voice, and no one pays any mind I m nowhere at all any In The Death of Claude Fran ois, an office visit from [...]


  8. I wondered while reading this book whether something might have been lost in translation that isn t to say that the translation is inelegant or imprecise, but I can see how these stories might be meaningful in French than in English The stories are bleak and remind me, for some reason, of Sartre or Camus which is probably the most pretentious thing I ve ever said in any of my LibraryThing reviews There s a very rigid distance between the stories and the reader one isn t let in too closely Initi [...]


  9. I m not a French speaker, so the only way I can approach Marie NDiaye s book of short stories, All My Friends, is through its English translation by Jordan Stump And yet, afterwards, I have the feeling that I ve been immersed in a French sensibility subtle, nuanced, off hand, slightly surreal at times, periodically breaking out into passionate expression In this collection of five stories, the recurring theme is one s engagement with the past Many of the characters are pursued by the people they [...]


  10. When it comes to novels, I like getting dropped into the middle of a story and having to collect clues along the way to get the whole picture However, with most of the short stories in this collection, I could not pick up enough to clues to really get the whole picture and felt I had to make assumptions or guesses And sometimes I felt like the object at the centre of the picture was too obtuse for me to grasp Perhaps that is my reading, perhaps the writing There were times when I found the sente [...]


  11. Add Marie NDiaye to your list of talented contemporary French authors She has a stylistically unique voice that hints of Kafka and Philip Roth especially in, The Breast and Portnoy s Complaint NDiaye stretches our psychological perimeters by probing the boundaries of sanity Loneliness, hatred, revenge and disillusionment haunt her characters, who deal with their problems in eccentric or disturbing ways I was thoroughly hypnotized by the quality and depth of Ms NDiaye s five short stories I am ea [...]



  12. Marie NDiaye writes like a dream and her stories are total nightmares NDiaye left me curious and fascinated with these snapshots of people in mostly horrifying situations.


  13. An odd little book, whose stories end on uncertain notes, seemingly unfinished perhaps reflecting the incomplete, damaged characters within.
