the prize in SING TO IT in Cloudland, the longest story in the collection, which, like Tumble Home, convinces me that Amy Hempel and Amy Hempel alone knows how to navigate expertly the strange terrain of the long long story almost novella It s a staggeringly great piece of writing, and with enough autobiographical overlap Hempel s friend, the late Christopher Coe, is mentioned by name, and the story does take place in Hempel s new terrain of Florida that it s tempting to read as at least partially true, in which case it s all the devastating As was the case with Tumble Home Of course, that isn t what matters at all What matters is the language, and, fuck, I mean, even if it didn t contain a Joni reference, this is masterful The geese in chevron flight these are Joni Mitchell s words, and I hope the girl got to see this In my mind, she sees this over and over, every year at the right time of year The sound is part of the vision, of course, and part of Mitchell s haunting song, Urge for Going I played it countless times Sound calls up yearning than anything you can see, and is why I no longer listen to the much loved songYou can shut it all down Every last thing you defined yourself by you can give it up, and go without, and put up a front that gets some traction You must keep your gaze turned outward Pay attention to others Don t fall back on what is waiting to take you down Or choose to fall back on it, with arms flung out at your sides Thank the god I don t believe in that she s back flag 8 likesLike see review View 1 comment Nov 05, 2018 Kasa Cotugno rated it it

middle, there s no beginning and end, and you are often reading between the lines when you read Hempel, but I love every minute of it This is a book that requires a reread what did I miss before What about these characters resonates with me now Cloudland is almost a sort of novella that makes up the latter half of the book It s one of the most quietly poignant portrayals of yearning and loss I ve ever read I ve always found that Hempel s writing causes me to look inward, even when the story has nothing to do with anything I ve personally experienced Do you have writers that do that you That make you think of yourself and your life, something in their sentences just seems to resonate I first read Hempel in my freshman year of college in English class my professor was keen on short stories and I discovered so many wonderful writers that year I want to pull out my old copy of The Collected Stories and reread them now I hope you pick up Sing To It and go in with an open mind don t let the vagueness and abstraction turn you off, let it sink in, and then read it all over again.Thank you to Scribner for sending me a free copy of the book It will be out in March flag 5 likesLike see review

quite compelling reads I found that I did not care about the characters in the stories I did not respect them I didn t care what happened to them In one story the main character films her husband sleeping with someone else She watches the film and listens to their conversations Does she kick him out No Does she confront him No She seems to live her life as if on a heavy dose of sedatives.The final story, a long one, is about a woman who goes on and on about how she gave up her child at birth The endless ruminating about that goes nowhere She neither finds a way to give ruminating, having achieved some resolution or makes an attempt to find the child The apparent life on sedatives continues flag Like see review Dec 06, 2018 Book2Dragon rated it it was amazing Shelves short stories I
