Raphael Bob-Waksberg ´ 9 REVIEW

Raphael Bob-Waksberg ´ 9 REVIEW READ & DOWNLOAD ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Raphael Bob-Waksberg CHARACTERS Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory Stories And Auspicious Occasion a young couple planning a wedding is forced to deal with interfering relatives dictating the appropriate number of ritual goat sacrifices Missed Connection m4w is the tragicomic tale of a pair of lonely commuters eternally failing to make that longed for contact The members of a rock band in Up and Comers discover they suddenly have superpowers but only when they're drunk And in The Serial Monoga. When I heard the creator of BoJack Horseman had published a book I knew three things for certain1 I had to read it2 It would destroy me3 I would love itNow I will confess that I also initially had some reservations Obviously Raphael Bob Waksberg writes well for television BoJack Horseman is a brilliant show that makes you cackle with laughter but also brings you to tears for me those tears are figurative but some of my friends have literally sobbed over it so yeah it gets heavy Could his signature wit translate just as well to the page Would the monologues and ruminations that make BoJack so compelling fall flat when not spoken aloud by an anthropomorphic horse in Will Arnett s voiceI needn t have worried This is an absolute gem and just in time for the end of the year it has skated onto my list of best reads of 2019 Actually it s of a fancy necklace made up entirely of stories that are polished gems in and of themselves By turns side splitting and gut wrenching Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory is a kaleidoscopic view of love in all its forms fractals and colors shifting from dating to marriage friendship to family joy to despair Though thematically unified the individual stories never feel repetitive or redundant each taking a slightly different take on what it means to love in this day and age though not necessarily always in this worldThe writing here is top notch and the author really shows off his linguistic virtuosity here in a way that a single novel or even a single TV show could His characters range from teens to adults and one dog and while many stories are in the typical first or third person Bob Waksberg also takes some stylistic risks with multiple stories told in second person either as narratives or as imperatives as well as some lists and a poem I was thoroughly impressed at how easily he was able to shift to different tones and voices for his varied characters even going so far as to alter his page alignment justified or not in certain sections or to choose when sentences would ramble and when to make them elegant He casually buries philosophical brilliance in paragraphs of sarcastic sniping but it always feels entirely fitting not jarring or pretentious It justworksBy way of summary let s just say that this book includes Practical jokes Depressing reflections Goat sacrifices ManMonster A literal game of Taboo Bad choices Spooky hexagons Lots of fun playing with font style and size on chapter titles Parallel dimensions Greeting cards Awkward dates SPIN THAT WHEEL A Frankenstein esue monster that is a genetically reconstructed hybrid of the first ten US presidents all rolled into oneand so much The rest of this review for the sake of my sanity and yours alike will be a rundown of the individual stories followed by a lengthy section of my favorite uotes from the book because I flagged uite a few of them and I think they might give you a better idea of what actually happens in this one With all that saidlet s go THE STORIES Salted Circus Cashews Swear to God a short but oddly brilliant reflection on the difficulty and complexity of trusting someone when entering a new relationshiptold through the metaphor of a can of cashews that may or may not have a spring snake toy inside This was a perfect start to the collection and basically dissolved any uncertainty I felt about whether this would be a good readshort stories vignettes that point out all the inherent contradictions in the complex world of love and dating For example 3 You re not like other girls he said to every girlA Most Blessed and Auspicious Occasion a hilarious hyperbolic satire of wedding culture complete with goat sacrifices and a Shrieking ChorusMissed Connection m4w a trippy sad sort of story about hesitating to act and the possible painful results thereofThe Serial Monogamist s Guide to Important New York City Landmarks meditative very real exploration of the way that the longer you stay in a place the you come to associate specific memories especially negative ones with specific locations leaving ghosts on every streetWe Men of Science sci fi parallel universes and a billion ways to screw up your own life when you start to make assumptions about your world and the other lives you intersect withLies We Told Each Other a partial list a sketch of a relationship from beginning to painful end rendered in single brushstroke phrases that paint a sparse yet totally specific picture of the way things can deteriorate over timeThese Are Facts probably the one I liked least in the collection following a teenage girl s reunion with her estranged half brother on a family vacation I liked the writing but the story itself didn t hook me uite enoughLunch with the Person Who Dumped You a short fun take on what to do when you have that awkward reuest for a reunion lunch and how to navigate every possible outcome The flippant gameshow like narration lets this one really singRufus oh my god this story both broke and warmed my heart It s told entirely through a dog s point of view as he sees his owner enter and fall out of a relationshipand how his unflinching loyalty makes him unmistakably GoodogRules for Taboo when game night is both a literal poor choice and a metaphor for poor real life choicesUp and Comers superheroes in a band lots of drinking dysfunctional friendships poor relationship choicesin other words a bizarre and fascinating story that takes a totally absurd premise to explore a wide variety of important ideasMove across the country or how sadness and poor choices will continue to follow you no matter how far you goYou Want to Know What Plays Are Like my other favorite this blurs together expectations about theater and how difficult parts of family history can t be escaped in art or in real lifethe poem okay I ve read and written a lot of poetry but I ve got to say the rhyming and meter and inflection in this piece are among the best I ve read in a very long time Not ever but contemporary poets seem to struggle with this so you know I m impressed And on top of it this wacky poem manages to tell an entire story as well in a sort of sing song that even further heightens the storyThe Average of All Possible Things when an average girl with an average life and an average job has a rough breakup but admitting things aren t uite average is a little too hardMore of the You That You Already Are another case of the absurd premise with serious underpinnings a guy who plays Chester A Arthur at a theme park based on US presidents whose park is being taken over by some misguided scientists but who also has a sister with cancer who he cares very deeply aboutWe will be close on Friday 18 July takes a typo on a sign and turns it into a sort of wistful musing on what could have been A fittingly melancholy conclusion to this collection FAVORITE UOTES A statue isn t built from the ground up it s chiseled out of a block of marble and I often wonder if we aren t likewise shaped by the ualities we lack outlined by the empty space where the marble used to be I ll be sitting on a train I ll be lying awake in bed I ll be watching a movie I ll be laughing And then all of a sudden I ll be struck by the paralyzing truth It s not what we do that makes us who we are It s what we don t do that defines us You did it kind of as a joke and kind of for real the way eighteen year olds do everything FACT The things that are the most important aren t shared they are important only to usNo one can ever really understand the tangle of experiences and passions that make you who you are It s a secret collection a private language a pebble in your pocket that you play with when you re anxious hard as geometry smooth as soap Fine she said Enjoy your fucking married life with your fucking husband and your fucking house in the fucking suburbs with your fucking white fucking picket fucking fence fucking fucking I loved Mutt in that way that you love something when you re at a place in your life when you re ready to love something and there s a thing there that you can love If ends are encoded in every beginning we wonder then what is the point One night at a bar you pick up a hobby of a person that somehow grows into a habit a person whose flaws sparkle off yours in glorious coruscating patterns a person who gets to know not just the you you sometimes show but the you you truly are a person who when you weren t looking slipped a naked wounded heart into the pocket of your jacket with a bow and a note that said handle with care It turns out making an asshole a president just means you end up with an asshole president Probably could ve guessed that being president doesn t change you not really it just brings out of the you that you already are He used to call her a koala because of the way she wrapped herself around him in bed like a koala on a branch She had wrapped her whole life around him like a koala on a branch And now the branch was gone and Lucinda had to deal with the fact that her life was now wrapped around nothing which of course was all perfectly normal All the pain Lucinda now felt was normal The emptiness was normal The harsh incinerating b boring awful raw barren obsessive numb five hundred volt nothingness now completely consuming her was so totally average A poem s a thing that is hard to pin down though the words pile up in your headA person s a thing that is tricky to read but it s trickier yet to feel read Tl dr shut up drop what you re doing and read this book right nowIt s just that good If you re single and content if you re stressed about dating if you re in a happy relationship if you re struggling with family issues if you love dogsthis book has something relatable for everyone no matter how happy or sad or loveless or in love you are Just go ahead and dive in And don t forget to have some tissues on hand
