Daisy Johnson’s Fen is a liminal land Real people live their lives here They wrestle with familiar instincts with sex and desire with everyday routine But the w. Remember about the albatrosses We got one on our trail now I didn t know what it was when I saw it It was too big to be anything real I keep thinking about them carrying dead sailors around them I am ashamed to say that I was completely ignorant of the existence of this book It wasn t included in any of the recommending reading lists I receive and I hadn t read any review of it on Goodreads I had the luck to become aware of it after a suggestion by the wonderful Jen Campbell in one of her lovely videos that contain treasure for the lovers of haunting fiction And I searched high and low until I found it And when I read it I knew I was suddenly holding one of the best books I ve read this yearThis is a collection of short stories by Daisy Johnson connected by the theme of desire loss and the Otherness in every shape and form and the way we experience these notions particularly during our teenage and early adult years Here we have a girl that transforms herself into an eel Three alluring female vampires are in trouble when they start acting like their unfortunate highly edible victims A house comes alive out of jealousy and vindictiveness A young man returns to his wife The problem is that he was deadA sailor s pregnant wife reaches her limits surrounded by the fisherman s superstitions A mother with a strange and very familiar offspring who wishes to take unto himself the sins of the world Three siblings share a dark twisted fate that would put the Lannister House to shame A woman reminisces on her life while waiting her blind date A lighthouse keeper is obsessed with a sea creature These are some of the stories included in this haunting collection My favourites are Starving Blood Rites Language The Superstition of Albatross A Heavy Devotion The ScatteringMy first uestion was why Fen Why naming the book Fen What is the symbolism So I did my homework and connected my limited knowledge on the subject to new information and everything made a lot sense I knew that Fensalir was the dwelling of Frigg the Norse goddess of Wisdom and Foresight A domain of bogs marshes and springs And naturally most of us know Fenrir Loki s monstrous offspring that tries to exact revenge for its mistreatment And then I discovered that the beautiful fen is associated with water and mists The Fens landscape extending from Cambridge to Lincolnshire is a marshland interrupted by tiny communities of fishermen It s a land steeped in legends and stories of the paranormal The Will o the Wisp the Black Hound called the Black ShuckThink of The Hound of the Baskervilles and you ll get the picture herefore Folk elements exist throughout the stories And fens are everywhere There is obsession sexual passion the notion of virginity the desire to be different the trouble of being a teenager The writing is exceptional Cryptic poetic haunting There is a distinct haziness as if a mist is hovering over the stories everything is blurry and grey The reader needs to read between the lines see behind the sentences and try to decipher any conclusion that may be there And this is exactly the kind of uality that makes Fen such a mesmerizing uniuely beautiful book It definitely reminded me of Jen Campbell s The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night but in a darker and much twisted almost sinister wayIs this a book for everyone No it isn t It reuires us to suspend all disbelief to be attracted to bleak twisted dark choices But if you want to experience a uniue way of writing and if you love short stories with characters that could easily be protagonists in their novels then Fen is right there for you And in my humble opinion it s a masterpiece of the genreMy reviews can also be found on Indurain: La historia definitiva del mejor corredor del Tour de Francia (Córner) the w.

Some nice writing but this was unfortunately another letdown for me though if magical realism is your thing you might find some stories to enjoy here For me the stories ended up being pretty repetitive with protagonists which became interchangeable as the collection went on Like some other reviewers have mentioned I feel like this could have been enjoyable if there were fewer stories but they were fleshed out as a few of them definitely had potential
