Elegant translations of these wonderful stories Lovely high quality Pushkin edition, but also on Kindle These stories are to be savoured like good chocolates don t eat them all at once The tone is that gentle, teasing humour one associates with the French Worlds are evoked and interpreted in our own context Ayme pushes boundaries of reality impossible situations cast into a realistic frame We are played with and put down in a different place within his philosophical musings. Cover of the 1962 Berkley Medallion mass market paperback 191 pages I only read the title story and half the next one, about some stupid woman having an affair with a dick artist I failed to realize when ordering this that it was a collection of short stories rather than a novel. One of the best collections of short stories I ve EVER read Aym is considered one of France s national treasures, and now thatof his work is being translated and as the many multilingual comments below show his reputation will surely have lasting value beyond France s borders Often discussed within the context of magical realism, Aym is actuallyof a modern fabulist Several of the fables and tales in this collection are reimagined interpretations of older classics the rape of One of the best collections of short stories I ve EVER read Aym is considered one of France s national treasures, and now thatof his work is being translated and as the many multilingual comments below show his reputation will surely have lasting value beyond France s borders Often discussed within the context of magical realism, Aym is actuallyof a modern fabulist Several of the fables and tales in this collection are reimagined interpretations of older classics the rape of the Sabine women, for instance, or the seven league boots One of my favorites is the Poldavian Legend where a saintly woman is refused entrance into heaven while endless regimes of belligerent soldiers are welcomed without reservation.Like all fables, Aym s stories end with some sort of moral but with a twentieth century twist that is, a complicated and often unjust though accurate perception about human values in the face of WWII atrocities What do you take a way from an ending like the one written for the Poldavian Legend Is it that, in the modern state, patriotism is piety, no matter the bloody prerequisites of the patriot Whatever the case, the lesson reflects the way things are rather than the way things should be a sort of reversal of the fable s form Some of the stories are grotesque, some are enchanting, but all are inventive, fresh, and revelatory This is a book I ll return to Highly recommend Really enjoyed Great bite sized stories that read like fables for adults. Memorable for its absurdity but an uneven collection of short stories I especially enjoyed le passe muraille the 1951 movie version mesmerised me when I watched it as a kid in the 1980s , les Sabines

But it is the insight into humanity, particularly the humiliations of everyday poverty, that give the stories emotional heft and depth, and lift them above the usual exercises in literary form that anaesthetises most exercises in surrealism and magic realism.I first gave this book four stars, but the way the stories have remained with me suggests that I have undersold it This is definitely a five star book When the title story was followed by one about a woman who could avoid tough choices by creating copies of herself and having it both ways, I began to wonder if the whole collection would be the X Men as conceived in wry occupied France instead of earnest sixties America, but no It s surprising how much it gets away with, considering that 1943 first French publication the last story takes place in a ration queue during the 1939 1972 war elsewhere, the corruption which inevitably accompanies When the title story was followed by one about a woman who could avoid tough choices

over the fantastical, but The Seven League Boots could almost pass as a Nesbit or a fairy tale A couple of theovertly satirical pieces, The Bailiff and Poldevian Legend , feel slightly glib otherwise, this is one to savour I am embarrassed to say I had not heard of Marcel Aym until I came across his work while searching for magic realist books I was somewhat relieved to hear that my bibliophile husband hadn t either And yet Aym is a writer described by George Simenon asThe greatest French writer of the day Unfortunately little of Aym s writing has been translated into English, which, if this

while searching for magic realist books I was somewhat relieved to hear that my bibliophile husband hadn t either And yet Aym is a writer described by George Simenon asThe greatest French writer of the day Unfortunately little of Aym s writing has been translated into English, which, if this collection of short stories is anything to go by, is a great shame There are ten short stories in this book and nearly all can be considered magic realism I was reminded of Kafka when I read the book Aym s approach is to take a fantastical element, set it in a realistic setting and follow the internal logic to its conclusion.This appeals to me as I said in my review of The Peculiar Sadness of Lemon Cake I like there to be a logic within the story Dutilleul, the man who walks through walls, starts hardly using his gift at all but a series of actions and events take him down a slippery path Likewise the woman who can duplicate herself starts with just one other self , but after a while her other selves are duplicating and the numbers increase exponentially Some of the stories are amusing surrealism, but others have a dark tone to them Published in 1943, the stories reference the grim reality of life in occupied France The most striking is Tickets on Time in which in response to shortages the government decides to put unproductive consumers to deathby rationing the number of days they are alive Unproductive is defined to include the rich, elderly, unemployed, writers and artists and of course Jews Sadly the subject matter is still relevant in 2013.My favourite story was The Seven League Boots This story looks at a gang of boys and their relationships, and the wider context of social status Not until the end is there much sign of magic realism In this and in all the stories, Aym s strength is the characterization of the stories participants Despite being short stories the characters motives and emotions are well defined and explored No wonder Simenon admire Aym so much
