Read full description of the books:
Hegi's Stones from the River is one of those read books whose memory is caught in the mists between pre-GR and post-reviewing, when literary enjoyment was a hobby and any career other than engineering a pipe dream. Like many books I loved before my understanding of them began to yearn towards holism, I will eventually return and pull from it some sense of origin, grounding the sensibilities of a younger self in the analytic soil of an older. I will not indulge in lazy disdain and withering remarks, for there is enough death dealing bullshit being spilled by those in the name of 'maturity' to fill the world many times over. Besides, it is much harder to hone one's skills at anything if the roots are continually denied.
I will compare this both to My Brilliant Friend and Stephen King, for what the former makes explicit in black market inheritance and the latter in child-eaters of the dark is the weight of history, post-WWII and all its grappling. Concerning King, it was eerie how closely one of the short stories (to be frank, a more accurate term of the structure of this tome would be watercolors taken at different vantage points throughout the town of Burgdorf, focused more on the story as a whole rather than the perspective of a linear soul) came to that scene of children on bikes chasing down a horror, smack dab in the middle of the pathos that ranges between Stand By Me and It. Indeed, I've a theory that my intolerance of whitewashing atrocities stems not from any inherent moral character of my youth, but of the sheer amount of King and co. that I imbibed, stories of children tracking down monsters no adults would touch not because they were curious, not because they were looking for a thrill, but because they were being killed, and the grown ups did nothing. It's a tension Hegi doesn't touch upon as much as I would've liked (not the least mention of the lack of Jewish neighbors, for example), but amongst the day to day of painters, healers, small town scandal and the librarian who feeds on it all, it is there. The childhood grasping at what the past has left, and the adults who refuse to talk.
For anyone who's now extremely concerned about this story collection terrifying them out their wits, the King comparison was more personal experience than exact definition. The one thing I remember most about Stones from the River was a soothing prose that did not dim its beauty by swerving away from odious events or smoothing out the uglier facets of 1950's Germany, and the same can be found here. No Ferrante, to be sure, but there is a similar faithfulness to depicting how emotions violently inflict themselves on the body of self and those surrounding. History has a way of working itself out eventually, no matter how many are silent.
