    This 1995 collection was Ali Smith s first published work, and is a very accomplished work Many of her stylistic trademarks are already present The stories are playful, their protagonists often rebel against conformist expectations and the imagery is often startling.I particularly...

    Then she pushed the board right up and wrote in large letters, bangles jangling in the silence, the words Look Upon The World With Love Then she sat down at the table Free Love is an early collection of Ali Smith s short stories it was published in 1995 and contains the following Free love A story of folding and unfoldingText for the day A quick one Jenny Robertson your friend is not comingTo the cinemaThe touching of wood Cold ironCollegeScaryThe unthinkable happens to people every dayThe world with love I marked my personal favourites but unlike other collections there weren t as many stories in this one that have stuck with me Even though Free Love is an early collection, there is visible brilliance in these stories It is just that they a...

    Ali Smith n 1962 A minha paix o pelos contos come ou quando li, essencialmente, dois escritores norte americanos Raymond Carver com dois livros De Que Falamos Quando Falamos de Amor e Queres fazer o favor de te calares e Flannery O Connor com outros dois livros Um Bom Homem Dif cil de Encontrar e Tudo o Que Sobe Deve Convergir.Nos ltimos anos, a escritora canadiana Alice Munro , os escritores norte americanos Lydia Davis e Richard Yates , e o escritor noruegu s Kjell Askildsen s o as minhas prefer ncias na rea da narrativa curta, em leituras altamente gratificantes.Esta colect nea de doze contos da escritora escocesa Ali Smith n 1962 foi publicada pela primeira vez em 1995.Os contos de Amor Livre exp em hist rias sobre o amor e sobre os desas, mas igualmente, sobre o desejo e a descoberta da sexualidade, nas suas m ltiplas vertentes e sobre a paix o partilhada pela natureza, pela literatura , pelo cinema, pela cultura popular, entre outras tem ticas Destaco quatro contos Amor livre, Um texto por dia, Uma rela o breve e Tocar na mad...

    Os primeiros contos do livro adorei Adorei a simplicidade da escrita da autora e o facto que os seus contos raramente t m um ponto final, podendo haver outras possibilidades O que torna bastante interessante j que um livro de diversos as retratados de pessoas reais e a vida assimincerta Mas com alguma pena, os ltimos contos n o achei nada de especial e posso dizer mesm...

    I love Ali Smith s writing she s the perfect combination of witty, conversational, and philosophical But even though I liked all the stories in this collection, only a few are really memorable One of those, To the Cinema, is one of my favorite short stories ever i...

    Slow, disjointed and not very enjoyable.I m afraid that this is the second book by Ali Smith I have attempted to read and I only finished this one just before my patience gave out and I won t be trying any I really don t like Smith s writing s...

    Amor Libre es un libro de relatos escrito por Ali Smith en que el hilo conductor es cualquier tipo de amor En l, aperecen diferentes historias sobre el amor maternal, rom ntico, sexual dentro del escenario de la vida, que cada uno vive con sus propias circunstancias y formas, lo que bajo mi punto de vista es lo que hace m s especial al libro El estilo de Ali Smith me ha gustado mucho, sin duda es un estilo diferente, atrevido, innovador, con el que por desgracia al principio, me cost familiarizarme, ya que en mi caso normalmente suelo leer novelas o c mics y estos relatos est n narrados en una prosa que se acerca a lo po tico y que he sabido apreciar sobretodo al final del libro Los relatos aunque son cortos creo que cuentan lo necesario, son retazos de vidas, historias, sentimeintos, que podr...

    OK, the Ali Smith marathon is over Please mop up your drool, pull up your pants, and sod off home It s been real This book is her first story collection, a little straightforwardly literary than her other works Most of the stories here are excellent, others found me yawning and itchy But...

    Ali Smiths debuut We schrijven 1995, de wereld zag er gans anders uit maar ook toen schreef ze al geweldig Desondanks slechts vier sterren omdat er weliswaar naar Smith standaarden enkele mindere verhalen in staan Maar ook het mooiste kortverhaal dat ik al gelezen heb, Text for the day En nog enkele pareltjes Een ander auteur had toch die vijf sterren van mij g...
