Summary In fremden Gärten

With the precision of a surgeon Peter Stamm cuts to the heart of the fragile and revealing moments of everyday lifeThey are bankers students mothers or retirees They live in New York City or somewhere in Switzerland they work in London or Riga they cross paths in a Fado bar in Lisbon They breathe the banal routine of daily life It is to these ordinary people that Peter Stamm grants center stage in his latest collection of short stories Henry a cowherd tu. Stamm is a documentarist an observer and a realist He doesn t embellish human life At times his short stories seem to display well informed fragments of human existence The collection of stories does not suggest excitement It doesn t seem the author attempts to serve his reader s curiosity These are stories perfect for a reader who s willing to observe rather than engage with the characters or indeed show empathy towards them In fact Stamm s characters often seem to be missing from the actual story The protagonists often have no names they are he or she sometimes in an interesting twist the story is told by the protagonist s neighbour The Stranger Garden Perhaps this is a reason why Stamm manages to translate the situational atmosphere eually skilfully from a man and a woman s perspective Reading these stories I often had a feeling of watching the snow fall steadily for hours on a dark evening street lit by a streetlight s warm light Stamm doesn t suggest and doesn t offer any guidance to the reader as per what to feel or to conclude about a situation he has chosen to illustrate All conclusions are individual and situational like that feeling with the falling snow not everyone will feel the same blending of tranuility and joy as I know I will In fact the reader may well end up having no conclusions at all about these life fragments Nevertheless each Stamm s story bears a subtle sense of familiarity

I just read a short story by Stamm a Swiss writer in the New Yorker It was beautiful I m always suspicious of male writers who use female main characters because as often as not it seems they re just being exploitative or trying to make some kind of point they don t think they can make with a male character But this one felt perfectly authentic So I want to read by him and I just checked and the library doesn t have it I ll have to buy a copy It better be good
