    1. So, you know how people talk about a golden age of short story writing that took place during the 1980s? I often fantasize about that era, and try to find the writers who were part of it. This book was written in 1990, but Leavitt's first collection came out in 1984, and I wonder if he's part of the whole 1980s short story phenomenon. One of these stories made me cry, another gave me chills.If you're wondering what kind of stories these are, they're hard realism (my favorite), contemporary subje [...]


    2. Leavitt, a writer I've in fact warmed to over the years, still makes me cringe a little (or a lot) when he writes about gay men, which is nearly all the time. You wouldn't want to be any of them. All very prissily neurotic. But this collection of short stories made me realize the pieces with no gay men in them are worse. It's as if he's straining to find something else to write about, but that something is never interesting. He should relax and just be content to be the Henry James of gay men's [...]


    3. I'd say it's more of a 3.5 rating. I enjoyed the bulk of the stories here, although some more than others. Leaviit has a talent for writing stories with myriad characters that are still unique from one another and memorable (think of the opening chapters in War & Peace). Although it's not my flavour of tea with short stories, those that do have many interacting characters are still amusing to read and the heaviness of some themes is then masked by the consequent lightness of this style. The [...]


    4. No sé si he entendido del todo bien la historia. No veo un principio y un final claros. No se si he terminado de entender el final. Pero bueno, es una lectura más de la universidad así que lo tenía que leer sí o sí.


    5. A solid collection of short stories, primarily gay themed. The writing is lyrical, smooth like beach glass. Some of the stories skim the surface, some are deeper, but all address universal issues in unique ways.



    6. A collection of truly original and well written strories that adress some very relevant themes concerning our western lifestyle.


    7. These were fine. But after reading pretty much all of Leavitt's books I have officially become so, so, SO done with neurotic white Jewish gay NYC narratives. So done.


    8. I'm a huge fan of David Leavitt. However, my fandom may be limited to his novel work. I didn't feel that packed the same kind of punch in the short form. There are authors like Michael Chabon who I will read at any length -- even though their novels may be getting incredibly long. Leavitt, however, seems like the author I go to for the a solid romantic, gay, literary novel -- usually a period piece. Considering this collection is about the same page count as The Two Hotel Francforts or While Eng [...]


    9. "un luogo dove non sono mai stato", o l'arte del racconto: perchè scrivere un racconto è difficile, devi creare un mondo coerente in poche pagine, e leavitt ci riesce, e ci riesce dannatamente bene. che siano lo struggimento di un uomo diviso tra l'amore per la moglie e il sogno di una nuova vita e di una nuova casa con un uomo conosciuto per caso o la relazione di una coppia che si conosce in ospedale dove cerca di dare un senso alla propria vita dopo la morte del coniuge, che sia la ragazza [...]


    10. You know that book that you loanedto a friend that you wish you had not? This is that book. Sure I can buy another copy but I have so many memories of picking up THAT copy and re-reading certain short stories over the last 20+ years. I have been the "Celia" in "I See London, I See France". I had my Nathan. We no longer speak. He introduced me to David Leavitt's books. Every story in here is a gem. I also highly recommend Leavitt's book The Lost Language Of Cranes.


    11. I read it all the stories but did not enjoy the weird, self centred viewpoints. Little men who never grew up; ok you are gay, you are Jewish, there are many rich Jewish relatives but get over it. The Italian tale is the same, one Jewish lady, and so much love/lust history instead of divorce. Spare me please.


    12. Some interesting and touching short stories, quite full of emotions. Mostly homosexual related topics - such as a friendship between a gay man and a woman; two gay teenagers; lesbian ex-friend who married another man, etc. I recommend this one. Easy to read.


    13. This is the second book of short stories I've read this year and I've decided they're not for me. They seem superficial and you don't get time to develop a real engagement with the characters.




    14. The opening story made a huge impression on me. I had a relationship just like that and the story just cut to the heart.


    15. Somewhat dated collection of short stories by the incredible David Leavitt. Although feeling old now (this book was written in the 90s), it made for a quick read on a plane ride.


    16. It's a series of short stories. The first and the last were really the only two worth reading. Oh, and each story is based in some way on homosexuality and suffering. It's not an uplifting book.
