Orange World and Other Stories free read ´ 6 Rious title story a new mother desperate to ensure her infant's safety strikes a diabolical deal agreeing to breastfeed the devil in exchange for his protection The landscape in which these stories unfold is a feral slippery purgatorial space bracketed by the void yet within it Russell captures the exuisite beauty and tenderness of ordinary life Orange World is a miracle of storytelling from a true modern maste. I remember when Swamplandia came out and I obsessively recommended and described it to people I must ve been such a charming dinner guest As far as I m concerned Orange World and Other Stories is the pinnacle of Russell s stylistic and imaginative achievement thus far Each of her tales is so vivid and slightly askew With a central fantastic conceit played out in an insistently realistic world not necessarily our world mind you but a realistic one often melding contexts with which her readers are familiar in a phantasmagoric shorthand For example in one story people breed tornadoes for the rodeo for example and Russell brilliantly entangles the rich idioms of catastrophic weather and bull breeding In another climate change and pollution have led to a New Florida and teenage girls become gondoliers The cli fi context is constantly offset by this vaguely Venetian fantasy and then compounded in its eerie strangeness by the girls development of echolocation Russell is so inventive and the psychological core of each of her stories is powerful Perhaps my favorite is the title story Orange World which describes parental fear for infants green world would be a safe one orange is one with daily perils red would be apocalyptic and also the rigors and terrors of breast feeding Though the stakes for the characters are clear urgent and immediate and often reflect the dilemmas and flaws of lives in our world Russell is also playful her stories aren t pat Another favorite about zombies on Corfu takes a turn at the very end that had me laughing both because of how fitting it was and how unexpected A true delight of a collection
