کتاب تب بشکه

اثر دیوید سداریس از انتشارات بنگاه ترجمه و نشر کتاب پارسه - مترجم: علی مجتهدزاده-ادبیات آمریکا

؛«طنزی جسور و بی‌پروا كه به مارك تواين و ناتانيل وست پهلو می‌زند... در جهان ديويد سداريس هيچ‌كس از نيش طنزش در امان نيست و او سر به هيچ تيغی فرود نمی‌آورد.» «اين داستان‌های شگفت‌آور، زنده و نفس‌گير، آن قدر سريع جلو چشمتان شكل می‌گيرند كه فرصت توضيح يا مرور دوباره‌ی آن‌ها را پيدا نمی‌كنيد. سال‌ها بود كه اين همه بلند بلند نخنديده بودم.» «سداريس تلخ‌ترين قصه‌ها را با تيغ دودم طنز خود شكافته و به تركيبی بی‌نظير در روايت و شيوه‌ی بيان رسيده است... انگار سلينجر و جان واترز با همكاری يكديگر اين قصه‌ها را نوشته‌اند.»؛

معرفی کتاب تب بشکه از نگاه کاربران
A collection of short fiction pieces – parodies, flights of fancy bordering on the absurd, and the blackest of black-humor riffs on dysfunctional families – followed by Sedaris’ debut and best-known memoir, “SantaLand Diaries,” and a few other humorous essays.

As a great fan of Sedaris, I’ve read all of his work, and enjoyed this book the least. As a fiction writer, Sedaris makes a damn fine essayist; I found his stories to be either too fantastic to be meaningful (“Don’s Story,” in which an obnoxious unemployed man is fawned over by Hollywood, and everyone else, for no reason at all; “Parade,” in which an obnoxious man has a series of unlikely lovers, from Charleton Heston to Mike Tyson), or simply too grim to be funny (“The Last You’ll Hear From Me,” in which a woman plans to incite violence at her funeral, “Season’s Greetings,” a truly repulsive story in which a psychotic woman kills a baby by putting it in the dryer and tries to blame it on her husband’s Vietnamese war child; “Barrel Fever,” in which a man recalls his mother’s passive-aggressive nastiness, and defends his own obnoxious behavior when drinking).

Of course there’s humor to be found in dysfunction – it’s what Sedaris made his career out of – but in fiction, Sedaris treats his demons not as things to be deflated through observation, but as therapy. “SantaLand Diaries,” which I’ve heard before, was fantastic, and the other essays, about smoking, being an apartment cleaner in New York, and writing for a kink magazine, were good as well, but they did not make up for the sour taste the stories left.

Il primo libro di Sedaris che io abbia letto, e rischia di restare lunico. Questo racconto semi-autobiografico a singhiozzo, nonostante alcuni momenti resi godibili dallacuto spirito di osservazione dellautore, mi ha talvolta irritato ma più spesso annoiato. Può darsi benissimo che io non capisca il suo senso dellumorismo, sempre che a infastidirmi non sia stato invece il gigantesco e sfacciato egocentrismo di cui mi pare dia prova il narratore, e che solo a tratti viene interrotto da benvenuti ma troppo rari momenti di autoironia.

Sedaris first book and it shows. I am glad that he switched to the autobiographical stories and left the straight up fiction behind. reads like a john waters film, but could be better. id say this book is for sedaris completists and that others should just stick w/Naked.

Very weak. Just go ahead and read the later books.

Please see my review at Amazon.com: Graces Barrel Fever Review

Terrible, terrible book. With the sole exception of Santaland Diaries, this was a waste of time and paper. Borrow it from the library, commit Santaland Diaries to memory, and ignore the rest.

As I recalled from reading the print version several years ago, the personal stories are best. The fictional essays are decent, too, but not quite as entertaining. On audio, it’s still a “pick,” though. I love Sedaris!
