Mr Bones

Summary Ô PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¹ Paul Theroux Paul Theroux ¹ 4 review Mr Bones review ↠ 104 A dark and bitingly humorous collection of short stories from the “brilliantly evocative” Time Paul Theroux A family watches in horror as their patriarch transforms into the singing wise cracking lead of an old timey minstrel show A renowned art collector relishes publicly destroying his most valuable pieces Two boys stand by helplessly as their father sta The first thing you should know is that many of these stories have already been published in The New Yorker the Atlantic and other esteemed magazine The second thing is that they re good deceptively simple powerful and in the end unsettlingTake the eponymous story Mr Bones for example On the surface it s about a cowered husband and father a shoe salesman who has become nearly invisible to those around him He puts on a mask and adapts an attitude for an old fashioned minstrel show and suddenly becomes intimidating and untouchable It s not a far stretch to say it s about how we all hide behind our inscrutable masks with hints of the racism and marital problems that pervade societyAnother Minor Matt uestions what we value the most In this one an obscenely wealthy art collector bids on and then slashes valuable art work from top artists The art world complies knowing that the destruction will jack up the prices of the remaining worksThere s Siamese Nights about an American manufacturer who begins an intoxicating affair with a ladyboy and learns to his horror that the delicate creature he creates in his own mind is not the same as the person who truly possesses assurance insistence and certainty And there s I m the Meat You re the Knife where a writer verbally torments a former English teacher now helpless and dying with subtle reminders of his past abuseThese are tales of revenge self recognition and sometimes redemption often rooted in the common situations such as the war against raccoons Two of the stories are composed of short shorts and a few resort to a formula the last line provides a stunning insight leaving the reader slightly stunned All in all a very worthy collection and I give it a 45
