Full disclosure I received an ebook of this collection from the author and I know Bogi on hereon Twitter; I think my review is largely unaffected by our acuaintanceThis was my last Pride Read and perhaps the ueerest of them all and that is definitely a compliment Bogi's writing forces the reader to rethink their perspective surprises pushes boundaries defamiliarises and estranges and at the same time seems focused on the intimate the bodily the sacred It's very much in step with significant 21st century literary and theoretical concerns the stories engaged with body as affected by our environments and power relations history and religion and on cognition as negotiated and strange The human and non human are not obvious or simpleThey were also very very distinctive and engaging with so many other texts I am sure if I had than a very very cursory think one or two reads knowledge of Hungarian or Jewish literary traditions and history and so on I would get much out of them But I still found plenty to think aboutI didn't enjoy all the short stories eually; I found the ones about kink largely this is fine but not my thing and some of the early stories cerebrally enjoyable on the level of language and images but not terribly affecting emotionally However the later stories and particularly Standing on the Floodbanks as well as stories focusing on the tensions and productive intersections of various identities with Jewish identity and history to speak to me and my own experiences The hauntedness of Eastern Europe for example was very well renderedI read the collection uickly even though I was actually uite busy with a family visit and work I hope that attests to my enjoyment as well
