Flyeread one of the best platforms for comedy classics has featured a number of comedy classics for a long time now. And they just added a popular book that is a collection of short stories by John Updike. ‘Trust Me’ is on the shelves now.
‘Trust Me’, a collection of short stories where Updike has mentioned many stories about parents leading their children into peril, husbands abandoning their wives, wives manipulating their husbands and time undermines all.
He has also taken a new urgency as earthquakes, illnesses, lost wallets and deaths of distant friends. A man loves his wife’s twin sister, one woman is loving her impotent lover, and another is made to administer her father’s death. A very vibrant collection of topics that we hardly ever imagine in real lives. John Updike has remarkably done his best in this collection.
It's easy to induce content with Updike because he talks about mundane and familiar things--and because, thematically, he repeats himself. (If you have a browse over 2 or 3 Updike stories, you know what we are talking about: sex; infidelity, actual or meditated; divorce; Pennsylvania boyhood replaced by New England adulthood; churchgoing; the concern of death; meaninglessness of middle age; and so on). Is Updike's neurotic treatment of his subjects a strength or weakness? We will in all probabilities always disagree this. Updike has mustered strength when he unrelentingly worked these themes again and again because of the tediousness is outweighed by the ability of insight that, dramatizing them again and again, recapitulating the decades of mistake and moments of recognition that form up the interchangeable lives of his characters and himself. (Then once more, it may be that even the stories' tiresomeness is part element of their strength: tiresomeness might be an acceptable mood for Updike's stories to evoke when taken as a gaggle, in light of his subjects.)
Greg, a member of Flyeread read “Trust Me” and this is what he has to say, “I recommend highly the first four stories, at least, if you want a taste of the best of this author's work. (And, yes, I read all 22 stories over a period of 21 days, two the first day and then one a day thereafter, as from the first two stories my expectation for the rest shot through the roof, but I wasn't rewarded as expected.)”
The author has a talent to make the plainest of objects and events bloom in the stories. Everything fits in perfectly in his stories as if they were meant to be. You derive absolute pleasure from the words he uses to describe the scenes. His authority as a writer reflects the humor, elegance, honesty and generosity of spirit that he portrays in his writing.
