The Complete Gary Lutz Reviews

  • Robert

    How could I get through almost 500 pages of short stories and only at the end realize: 1) they're all in first-person and 2) almost every story is about failed love/marriage and sexual confusion? I hung on every blessed word.

    This is because Gary Lutz is a poet. These are exquisite poems formatted into short stories--with extremely clever neologistic touches. He obviously works the prose to perfection and says exactly how he feels. There's really nobody like him. The kind of book you blather

    People who want to impress you by knowing about writing pick up

    (a brick of a book containing the lifetime short-story output of Pittsburgh’s most clear-eyed and cranky underdog) and gush at the treachery-free intricacy and ineluctable revelations of Lutz’s individual sentences. It’s true that many Lutz declaratives end like a slap to the face from someone who has learned to make you come that way. Still, the cumulative force and enduring value of these collected forays

    (a brick of a book containing the lifetime short-story output of Pittsburgh’s most clear-eyed and cranky underdog) and gush at the treachery-free intricacy and ineluctable revelations of Lutz’s individual sentences. It’s true that many Lutz declaratives end like a slap to the face from someone who has learned to make you come that way. Still, the cumulative force and enduring value of these collected forays into scummy living while skimming above the poverty line come from Lutz’s steadfast loyalty to an unblinking worldview. Interacting with other people is a humiliation that offers no fulfilling validation in any meaningful way. The same goes for you when you are on your own.
