Conhecimento Comum



This is the perfect title for this book of short stories. Big Bad Love. That's what it's about. Even though parts of it were disgusting to me, the book was real. I know these people, and have been them. I laughed and I cried, even on my third time through.
Thanks to Pat Knight for this gift.

If you liked "Billy Ray's Farm", you'll like this one too. More of Brown's straight to the heart writing.

This was the first book I read by Larry Brown. I've read it twice now, and will read it again. There's something about his writing that makes me feel at home, makes me feel closer to other humans than I would have without it. It's simple and direct, straight from his heart to mine. I suppose it helps that I grew up in a similar place in the rural south, so I recognize the cast of characters he develops. (I'm speaking of his fiction work). His characters are real. I've known them and been them. In this collection of essays, he shows with his easy prose, all the ugliness along with the beauty of living.
If you are a writer or aspire to be, you must read this book.

Two Vietnam vets get to know one another in a Veteran's hospital over the course of a painful evening. One, a multiple amputee, hopes to convince the other, a severe head wound survivor, to engage in an act of brutal mercy. The narrative cuts between the two as they retell their stories to each other, and to themselves. It's sad and moving, and psychedelic sometimes - the amputee has a frank conversation with a chain smoking Jesus.

3 bones!!!
