    One thought on “The Disobedience of Water”

    1. I LOVE her novels. I've read Ahab's Wife twice, wept at Four Spirits, and tore through Abundance in one glorious sitting. But. I just wasn't into these short stories. I didn't really care about any of the characters, and became easily frustrated by their actions. I'll wait for the next novel.

    2. What I love about reading short stories is the variety that you can get. You never know after finishing one story what the next one will hold!There are eight short stories in this book. Naturally, some were better than others. I Am Born is about a young boy who sneaks into his father's car and unknowingly accompanies him to the home of his teenage patient. The boy develops a new perspective after helping his father give birth to the young lady's baby. Burning Boy tells the story of a six-year-ol [...]

    3. Some truly lovely moments with language. Some of the stories I wanted to see grow into novels, and part of that was because there didn't feel to be enough in the brevity, as if something crucial were missing, and I knew she was driving at it but didn't reach the point. I especially enjoyed the opening story, "I Am Born," which has a young daughter follow her father to a birthing in another part of town, her observations and curiosity, though I do wonder, if it grew any more than the size it was, [...]

    4. A master of the novel, Naslund's talents sometimes feel limited by the short story format. Her vast thoughts seem cut and crammed at times, her characters wanting the kind of fleshing-out she is so good at. Even so, there is real poignancy and unexpected authenticity ("I Am Born," "Burning Boy"), and eccentric and unsettling situations ("How Do You Do, Mr. Cat?"). It's interesting to see how a novelist of epic, historic subject matters handles the narrow worlds she has created in this collection [...]

    5. I really wanted to like this book. It just seemed like every story sort of danced around, not pinning anything down. It was a challenge just to figure out what the heck was going on in some of these stories. And not a rewarding challenge either. I think Naslund tried too hard to describe everything in a fresh and unique way, but too often neglected to set the scene so that her readers could appreciate what she was saying.

    6. As a rule, I don't read short stories anymore. They don't give me time or space to immerse myself in the characters and too often the things that happen in them are too small or uninteresting for me to care.This book proved me wrong on all accounts. The worlds are gorgeously written and full, the characters are deeply nuanced, and I was so immersed that I actually cared about the small and big things that happened.

    7. This is a troubling book for me to review. A collection of short stories and novellas written by an amazing writer in so many ways yet Naslund falls into the temptation to throw in some tawdry, crude experiences in some stories. One in particular ("Into the Free State") disgusted me, frankly. Others I really enjoyed. She has a wonderful style and voice, just chooses subject matter I'd rather not read about.

    8. Loved reading these short stories, especially after having met the author last fall. I enjoyed hearing her voice again. The structure of these stories is surprising, all of the characters are compelling & the last story is so good that I feel sad the book is very. I will have to read another book by this author soon.

    9. The writing in each of these stories is superb though I found some of them far more engaging than others. Sena Jeter Naslund writes with a depth and maturity that is rare in contemporary literature. I think my favorite story was The Death of Julius Geissler a brilliant violinist who effected people both with his music and his unique and mercurial personality.Lovely collection.

    10. Sena Jeter Naslund. The Disobedience of Water. New York: HarperCollins, 1999.This was a strange collection of short stories about generally very well educated, intelligent people. It was also about betrayal – people who cheat on each other and children who are sexually abused. She was good with words - a good writer, a challenging writer - but definitely strange.

    11. It was difficult finding my pace with this book of short stories, but that says more about me right now than the book. Loved "Madame Charpentier and Her Children" and the title story had a Molly Bloom sort of feel which I could appreciate more than enjoy.

    12. I loved Naslund's novel Ahab's Wife but hadn't read this collection of stories and novellas until this week.Her writing is beautiful in all these pieces but I especially loved the title novella. The prose really ripples and sings and I was captivated by the storyline itself

    13. Sena Jeter Naslund has a way of bringing words to observations and ideas that, for most people, remain in the sub-conscious. These short stories are nice examples of her wonderful writing.

    14. Sena Jeter Naslund is a wonderful writer. I appreciated her prose in Ahab's Wife so much that I'm loooking forward to reading her stories.
