review The Syllabus of Errors 100 The Syllabus of Errors is a story seuence a mixture of contemporary and historical episodes A cast of loners and romantics explore how our anxious present is mirrored in the uncertainties of the inter war period with its crashes and crises Ultimately it conveys a coded warning from history about what can come to fill. I am so glad I read this book of stories Stunningly stylish writing Memorable characters and settings Brilliant wit and a kind of fearlessness The title story was one of the funniest I ve ever read The opening story was utterly gripping in its intensity it left me breathless Each story has its delights and its surprises They linger with you and like dreams they become part of your experienceAs you move through the book you know that you can trust the voice It won t let you down It doesn t And when you finish the last tale you get a sense of the whole and it leaves you inspired by what can be done in the short form but than that it leaves you hungry for life and for historySome really smart linking between the stories gracefully done I cannot recommend this book highly enough A superb collection Do yourself a favour and check it out I look forward to Ashley Stokes next collection I will certainly be reading it

review The Syllabus of Errors 100 Mar Berlin a faceless soldier wanders through a war torn city looking for his lost love an artist high on modernism gets caught up in a political assassination in Fascist Italy Personally they dream of capturing that unfulfilled promise that missed perfect kiss that unresolved moment that thing that should have lived. Andre van Loon A common narrative in the stories is that of the young man waiting to meet the girl he is interested in only for her not to turn up or to reject him when they do meet The wait makes up the narrative the way in which the young man moves through a world in which the young woman will not want him The people that impinge on his consciousness during this anxious time are the grotesues The decisiveness that eludes the loner is seen as vulgarity in those that do things Young lovers kissing in public are held in scorn salesmen with targets and pep talks become obscene loudmouths military enthusiasts are ridiculous fantasistsRead of this review at LitroNYcom

review The Syllabus of Errors 100 The void when universally accepted notions of democracy and liberal capitalism are being uestioned as nowThe restless and rootless characters dream of idealized cities or moments in the personal or historical past which they feel could offer their escape Historically Sally Bowles and Fritz Lang's M join hands in Wei. From the first few pages you know you re being well guided through these connected worlds Some of these are juicey peaches Others are suashed bananas The title story and I remember nothing are perfectly formed and have stayed with me A short film about a short film is a film script which is overcome by its copious footnotes The Prettiest Girl in Berlin is a horrifying ramble through a war zone Some of this is confusing Some if it is not All of it is written with such zest learning humour and joy though that any deviance is acceptable
