Über diesen Titel
In this breathtaking and unforgettable collection of fourteen stories, Molly Giles introduces us to women struggling in the everyday, and in elegant, poignant, and achingly true prose, observes the human condition.Review:
All of the stories in Molly Giles's second collection of short stories, Creek Walk are united by a common theme: the struggle of women to become visible in a world of men. In "The Writers' Model," the narrator sits in a room full of male writers revealing the most intimate details of her life in hopes that the men will one day translate them into fully rounded women on the page; in the end, of course, they don't. In "War" the main character is so alienated from her ex-husband that she does not even name him, referring to him only as "he." In the collection's most harrowing story, "Talking to Strangers," the narrator is literally invisible: brutally murdered and mutilated by a young man on a mountaintop, she speaks from the grave.
Molly Giles is a skillful writer and the women in Creek Walk leap off the page fully dimensional, their faults and virtues observed and interpreted. The men, however, are mostly ciphers: at best, unconsciously oblivious to the women in their lives, at worst willfully misunderstanding them. Still, Ms. Giles's elegant prose and memorable women make this collection a worthwhile read.
