Essay at Deer Hunting (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from An Essay at Deer Hunting Hunting and finding are two totally different things as my experience with collar-buttons and shorthand notes long ago taught me. If no mention of finding anything is made in these pages please bear in mind that it in no way detracts from the value of this essay as an essay, in fact to my mind it adds to its beauty because it shows that I am doing my best to stick to my text and not go wandering about, losing the thread of my discourse and hopping from one subject to another just for the sake of a change, like a spider on a hot stove. No, you will please note that this essay from start to finish follows the lines laid down in the title and there are a good many writers who might profit by following my example. And that brings me to another point which is that the printer made an error when he set up the title in type; he spelled it all right and he made three lines of it just as I told him to do but for some reason best known to himself he made the second line so small that you have to put your glasses on when you look for it, although it is the most important word in the whole outfit and should have been set in big, black letters, like the scare head of a divorce trial in a yellow journal.

""In the fall, I went for walks and brought home bones. The best bones weren't on trails--deer and moose don't die conveniently--and soon I was wandering so far into the woods that I needed a map and compass to find my way home. When winter came and snow blew into the mountains, burying the bones, I continued to spend my days and often my nights in the woods. I vaguely understood that I was doing this because I could no longer think; I found relief in walking up hills. When the night temperatures dropped below zero, I felt visited by necessity, a baseline purpose, and I walked for miles, my only objective to remain upright, keep moving, preserve warmth. When I was lost, I told myself stories . . ." "So Charles D'Ambrosio recounted his life in Philipsburg, Montana, the genesis of the brilliant stories collected here, six of which originally appeared in "The New Yorker." Each of these eight burnished, terrifying, masterfully crafted stories is set against a landscape that is both deeply American and unmistakably universal. A son confronts his father's madness and his own hunger for connection on a misguided hike in the Pacific Northwest. A screenwriter fights for his sanity in the bleak corridors of a Manhattan psych ward while lusting after a ballerina who sets herself ablaze. A Thanksgiving hunting trip in Northern Michigan becomes the scene of a haunting reckoning with marital infidelity and desperation. And in the magnificent title story, carpenters building sets for a porn movie drift dreamily beneath a surface of sexual tension toward a racial violence they will never fully comprehend. Taking place in remote cabins, asylums, Indian reservations, the backloads of Iowa and thestreets of Seattle, this collection of stories, as muscular and challenging as the best novels, is about people who have been orphaned, who have lost connection, and who have exhausted the ability to generate meaning in their lives. Yet in the midst of lacerating difficulty, t
