He said, "Can you sit with me?" Marshall N. To me this is a four-star book that gets an extra one for integrity, since the work is so faithful to the spirit of the Ruskin quote that precedes it. If you like that opening excerpt, you'll most likely appreciate the novel. Parts two and three give the appearance of linearity to the story, and relieve the reader from part one's nettlesome hacking through the underbrush.

The grouped stories in Tyrants trace the many forms of emotional, romantic, and historical. Some deftly portray both time and place, while others mine interpersonal relations with such intimacy and truth that they could be set anytime, anywhere. In the first sequence of stories, a son inherits and reconsiders his father's convoluted and extravagant tions about love, sex, wealth, and fatherhood.

Brilliantly evocative stories about tyrannies―political and intimate, historical and domestic―and about the unpredictable delinquencies of lust.

The grouped stories in Tyrants trace the many forms of emotional inheritance―cultural, romantic, and historical. Some deftly portray both time and place, while others mine interpersonal relations with such intimacy and truth that they could be set anytime, anywhere. In the first sequence of stories, a son inherits and reconsiders his father’s convoluted and extravagant notions about love, sex, wealth, and fatherhood. In the second, an American man and his Korean wife confront the cultural implications of a romantic, self-imposed exile. And in the historical fictions that complete the collection, love and flight, ambition, exploration, and exile intertwine in a helium balloon above Sweden, in an Italian airship at the North Pole, and in Stalin’s dacha during the Nazi invasion. Marshall N. Klimasewiski’s talent for “deft psychological triangulations” (New York Times Book Review) and for capturing “the subtle dynamics between people” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) is on full display here.

Some stories were arcane, but "The Third House" is one of the best short stories I've ever read. Every student of this genre should study this piece. Others can simply enjoy Klimasewiski's story for what it is: a masterpiece.

I was pretty much speechless at the end of this book. Maybe this author just jives well with my own preferences, but I've got to say this is the best short story collection I can ever remember reading. Just as good on the second or third read. Great subtlety and insinuation - and man can this guy close a story. Not for everyone, I suppose, but to me - incredible. The closing grace note of the closing paragraph in the closing yarn lands very lightly, but somehow powerfully brings all nine stories together.

A very diverse collection of stories. The historical fiction is really exciting and reminds me how important the imagination is in recalling/remembering history, non-fiction. In fiction, regular/common people become complex and important and important figures become human and regular. This is a book I'm glad to have on my shelf. These stories have been published in The New Yorker, Best of Tin House, Subtropics, etc. and their mutual company adds to their value.
