    One thought on “Under the Dam: And Other Stories”

    1. Sıkı bir öykü takipçisi olarak en bayılarak okuduğum öykü kitaplarından biri Başka Bir Ülkede. David Constantine’in öykülerinin öyle bir etkisi var ki, az önce bulutların tepesinde bir zeplinde dolaşıp anı yaşarken, biraz sonra toprağa diz çökmüş geçmişin kirli çamaşırlarını eşelerken bulabilirsiniz kendinizi.Ne yerdeyim ne gökteyim modundan hiç çıkmadan okudum bu kitabı. Her öykünün kendi içinde başka ruh halleri yaşatmasının yanında, aynı öyk [...]

    2. bir şair ilk öykü kitabında nasıl bu kadar usta olabilir, bilmiyorum. yetenek mi öne çıkar bu durumda çalışma mı?david constantine kurduğu mükemmel atmosferlerle ve insan ilişkilerinin en ince noktasını araladığı öyküleriyle bu senenin en iyi kitaplarından biri oldu benim için. ince bir kitap olmasına rağmen günde üç öyküden fazla okumak mümkün olmadı mesela, uzun uzun sindire sindire okunan satırları hazmetmek gerekiyor çünkü.üçlü ilişkiler birçok öy [...]

    3. Zeka, yetenek, kurgu, tutku, şiir ve fazlası Bu paslanmaz çelikten, keskin ağızlı öykülerin yazarı sevgili Bay David Constantine'in önünde saygıyla, hürmetle eğiliyorum. Öyküleri okurken aklıma düşen bir diğer olağanüstü Bay David'in (Foster Wallace), son yıllarında bu eserden bir okuma mutluluğu devşirdiğini hayal etmekten kendimi alamıyorum.Kitabın akıp giden nefis Türkçesi için İnci Ötügen'e ayrıca çok çok teşekkürler.

    4. Son iki öykü kaldı kitapta, dayanamayıp 5 yıldız veriyorum.''Bir Paris Hikayesi'' bir tek bana mı kötü geldi?

    5. These stories are so good you want to start re-reading them immediately. Although set in the present they have a timeless quality, and dig deep into character's motivations and self justifications. The writing is always brilliant. Stories like The Red Balloon and The Necessary Strength will have you wondering about them for days.(from my amazon review)By the way it says in the blurb above it's his first book of stories but in fact there's an earlier collection called 'Back at the Spike'.

    6. I'd like to give three and a half stars but not liked it as much to rate it with four stars. But it was a good collection of stories. My copy is a translated one so I would probably enjoy it more if I had read it in its original language. David Constantine seemed like an author with a solid writing to me even with the barrier of translation. I am definitely planning to give chance and read more of his work, preferably in English.

    7. Birbirinden güzel öyküler. Yazılanlardan ziyade yazmamayı tercih ettikleri etkiliyor okuyanı. Sanki negative space tasarlanarak başlanmış öykülere. Edebiyattan keyif almanın ne olduğunu hatırlatan bir kitap.

    8. I've had Constantine's collection in my bookcase, dipping into his stories time and again, for some years, but Under the Dam has just attracted attention because In Another Country, a story from the collection has recently been turned into the film, 45 Years, starring Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay, directed by Andrew Haigh. Haigh has elongated the story a little, but the essence is there. A couple married for 45 years think they are having a comfortable retirement and will complete their [...]
