    'Rust and Bone' had two really great things going for it different and disturbing Not too different nor too disturbing but a healthy dollop of both that made it a book to remember and recommend These are not your typical short stories They are violent gritty bleak; tales about broken people or individuals reaching a breaking point The writing is sharp and packs a punch A lot of the subject matter is the stuff

    What about a 35? I love this dude and I'm going to be following his career but you can tell he's still a young writer and learning how to put a collection together how to reel it in I'm sueamish so some of these stories were tough to stomach but he's definitely talented writer who's not afraid to grit it up he just needs to find that balance between being violenttransgressivewhatever for the heck of it and using it to

    Having read one of the pieces in a magazine I wanted to read the collection However this is one of those unfortunate collections where the work shrinks as one keeps reading Really there are only a few good stories here and side by side they fight with each other to be noticed The only way to read this collection would be to read one story wait several months and then read another Of course you won't be able to remembe

Ts that have less to do with sport than with survival no referee no rules not even gloves In A Mean Utility we enter an even desperate arena dogfights where Rottweilers pit bulls and Dobermans fight each other to the deathDavidson's stories are small monuments to the telling detail The hos. Hey all you midlifers who think dog fighting and porn are edgy and know a story is deep when it delivers on the shitty fathers and vague regret these seven Thom Jones and Chuck Palahniuk covers and one unreadable novella are for you With all first person narratives and zero subtext and every third sentence lacking a subject noun these stories are woven with all the lyrical grace of a loudmouth drunk who won t leave a tip before getting up to paint the sidewalk in vomit These tales of blue collar woe were imagined on the mean streets of Iowa City too probably the ones off campus where other Iowa Writers Workshop attendees might not have even been willing to buy their weed so you know you re getting the genuine Thug Lit article Tongue now removed from cheek my itemized beefs with this collection are as follows The no subjects thing is one of the most tiresome attempts at a stripped down collouial style I ve seen and only serves to annoy after the first story These stories are extremely plot driven and intentionally gritty and yet have little than a toehold on any verisimilitudinous reality The depictions of violence lose their power to shock with repetition and there is a lot of repetition The best story is probably Living in the Flesh but entirely because it is the most loyal Jones copy and even that one has a tacked on surprise ending in favor of actual character development just like A Mean Utility earlier in the book The attempts at clever connections between the stories just came off as impotently postmodern jibes and further undermine the verisimilitude am I supposed to imagine any one city with this many flat unredeemable people in such close proximity to one anotherPlanting my tongue firmly back in cheek I will say I did like writing in the margins and omitting unecessary words sentences and whole paragraphs for the author It was great practice for any workshops I might be in someday And gaining the expectation that attending such a prestigious workshop all but guarantees the publishing of one s stories regardless of uality sure gives a lazy young writer hope
