We Others New and Selected Stories review ☆ 9 “Every reader knows of writers who are like secrets one wants to keep and whose books one wants to tell the world about Millhauser is mine” David Rollow Boston Sunday GlobeFrom the Pulitzer Prize–winning author the essential stories across three decades that showcase his indomitable imaginationSteven Millhauser’s fiction has consistently and to dazzling effect dissolved the boundaries. This book started strong for me I liked the stories and they seemed to have interweaving themes But soon the themes seemed too much the same like often Millhauser was telling the same story only changing the setting and elements By the end of the book too many of the stories seemed to follow similar molds Stories seem to start out with a fanciful idea magician snowmen knife throwing etc The performance builds to the point of unrivaled extreme then crashes Many of the stories fit this pattern Other reoccurring themesMillhauser seems to like how humanity allows imitations to mimic the real thing that we accept cheap substitutes as placeholders The unknown is a mystery We can ponder endlessly the unknown because well we don t know it It is full of anything we want it to be Secrets are in all of us Everyone has secrets None of us are as we appear Why are some things accepted in small doses but not in big Here are some thoughts on the stories The Slap 4 Intriguing The story never tells you what is it about but it could be applied to so many things Crime Terrorism Disease Or is the point that many things in life don t have a point Life is chaotic The White Glove 45 Brilliant Best of the book for me Millhauser again builds up the interest in the unknown and our obsession about it What secret could the glove possibly be keeping But all of us keep secrets inside ourselves they are all around us The ending is wonderfully frustrating Getting Closer 35 Autobiographical maybe Millhauser s eye for detail is great was he the 9 year old trying to make a moment last foreverThe Invasion from Outer Space 4 Very short but wonderful An allegory that it is often not the big and dramatic that changes us but the mundane that snows us in People of the Book 3 Not sure what I think about this story The Next Thing 35 Sorta like Orwell s Animal Farm only it is commercialism that takes over instead of communism We Others 35 Really liked itup to the end Rich in detail and imagination The story could have been about two people who were alive A Protest Against the Sun 35 Good family interaction A lot to digest in only 10 pages Themes of self security and women being women s worst critics could have been developed August Eschenburg 4 Again disappointed by the conclusion of the story I find it fascinating that there seem to be many stories about automatons I have read at least two others that I remember Deeply woven contrasts of the freedom of human choice with the automatons forced routines August seems to yearn for someone to decide the path of his life for him Snowmen 4 Very short but good Is it a comment on the fickleness of fashion Or the escalation of weaponsThe Barnum Museum 35 Again themes of the real verses the imitations of the real are present Why is mankind drawn to the fanciful The Eighth Voyage of Sinbad 2 I did not connect with it Building multiple split narrations is daring and did not work for me Eisenheim the Illusionist 35 Again I was dissatisfied with the ending but liked the rest of the story The story follows Millhauser s familiar pattern of building and building and upping the story to the point of conclusion The Knife Thrower 2 Again the pattern of building to something taken too far Seems redundant The Visit 4 What is better to remain single looking for the perfect spouse or to be anchored with one who has flawsThe Flying Carpet 2 Again I feel like this is the same story as Snowmen and others Idea taken to extreme idea fades and is forgotten Clair de Lune 35 The dream of an adolescent boy Cat n Mouise 1 uit after a page and a half Appears to be descriptions of Tom Jerry cartoonsThe Disappearance of Elaine Coleman 2 Seemed a lot like a mirror version of We OthersHistory of Disturbance 2 Didn t get it The Wizard of West Orange 4 I had read this one in 2008 in The Best American Short Stories Very well worked Makes me think why the sense of touch is so rarely capitalized on I Cant Make You Love Me but I Can Make You
