  • I Looked into its filmy eyes inquisitively and saw it was the body s fear, not mine, not the soul s, and so it was fear of death I realized I could distinguish between my inner self and my physical body An ice cold surface covered my inner heat In this short story a man relates his inner most thoughts and reflections as he suffers a heart attack on the on the street I Looked into its filmy eyes inquisitively and saw it was the body s fear, not mine, not the soul s, and so it was fear of death I realized I could distinguish between my inner self and my physical body An ice cold surface covered my inner heat In this short story a man relates his inner most thoughts and reflections as he suffers a heart attack on the on the street and is then brought back to life after three and a half minutes It is a compelling tale of something appalling and yet completely ordinary, of pain and fear and acceptance, whilst walking the thin dividing line between life and death In contrast to the speed of this near death experience, the book includes a series of photographs in which the passage of time is hardly apparent Over the course of a year the author photographed a wild pear tree in his garden at different times of the day and year, recording its changes under the differing light conditions My Own Death contrasts perceptions of the here and now with the hereafter, and its complex composition alludes to mortal time and passage.

    1. Farklı dönemlerde yayımlanan dört hikayeden oluşan bu kitap sıkı bir edebiyat eseri. Üstelik ilk üç hikayeyi 1942 doğumlu yazar yirmili yaşlarında kaleme alınmış. Kitaba adını veren son hikaye ise daha yeni ve yazarın bir kalp krizi sonucu ölümün eşiğinden dönüşünü konu alan biraz metafizik bir parça. Diğer hikayelerde ise özellikle çocukların gözünden hayata bakış çok iyi yansıtılmış. Kutsal Kitap'ta insanların acımasızlığının, bencilliğinin, K [...]


    2. İlk üç öykü şahane, son öykü de yine çok iyi. Nicedir kitaplığımda duruyormuş, iyi ki Hakan Bey'in güzel değerlendirmesini aklıma girdi de nihayet okudum. 5/5


    3. Ölümle Baş Başa dört öyküden oluşan bir kitap: Kutsal Kitap, Bahçıvan, Kuzu ve Ölümle Baş Başa. Bu öykülerden ilk ikisi doğrudan bir çocuğun bakış açısından anlatılmış. Üçüncü öyküde, büyük yaştaki yazar çocukluğunu düşünerek anlatıyor. Dördüncü öykü de 50'li yaşlarda birinin kalp krizi geçirmesini anlatıyor.İlk iki öyküyü biraz arabesk buldum. Hatta neredeyse Emrah Serbesvari denebilecek bir anlatım biçimi var. Bu iki öykü bayağılığ [...]


    4. Kutsal Kitap : 3Bahçıvan : 3Kuzu : 4Ölümle Baş Başa : 3Bir insanın çevresindeki sınırlar ne kadar darsa, bu sınırların ötesi ne kadar az görülebiliyorsa bu hal, sonu gelmez gevezelikleri ve boşboğazlıklarıyla kendi çevrelerindeki kişilik duvarını yıkıp diğer insanlarla ilişkiyi kolaylaştırmaya, bu sınırları kabil olduğunca genişletmeye ve hatta yok etmeye çalışırlarken aslında boş lafazanlıklarıyla kendi karakterlerini yok etmekte olduklarını fark etm [...]


    5. This book is the account of what goes through the mind of the author who suffers a heart attack. Combined with his thoughts, description of the heart attack, and photos of a tree from his backyard, it was a very quick read. It was interesting enough, but not quite what I expected it to be. When I ordered it online, I thought it was going to be more of a full-length novel, but it isn't. The photos were okay, but one was not that much different from the next, although there were a few really nice [...]


    6. Ъъъ, май вече наистина Сериозната Литература е взела да ми лази по нервите :-)) Все едно текстът крещеше: "Моля ви, дайте ми награда, дайте ми награда!" Собствена смърт имаше нещо от Твърди Перейра и нещо от Гълъбът, но, стори ми се, е далеч по-претенциозна и тромава. Със сигурнос [...]


    7. Lo que ocurre al trenzarse el movimiento sofocante de la muerte con la gloria del nacer: en una frase adverbial: el horror ante la presencia de la creación. Este libro es el hermano gemelo de 'De profundis', obra capital de José Cardoso Pires.



    8. Откъслеци от мисли между живота и смъртта, по време на един инфаркт и след това, когато животът вече не е същият. Интересна форма, хубави думи в кратки изречения - нищо повече.


    9. My life consisted of a few lucky moments when I had intimations of what one should seek - Clinical death as a limit experience. Nádas writes that it was only then that he understood what Rilke meant with his angels. Which put me in mind of Foucault dropping acid in Death Valley. After a long silence he's supposed to have lifted his head to reveal his face streaming with tears. "Now I understand Under the Volcano," he said.Great works of art as the ones we understand only imperfectly throughout [...]


    10. Всеки ден, всяко действие, всички онези мисли. Представи си, че си книга с празни страници и всеки един миг на нея се изписват думи. Всяка една крачка е тирето или точката в изречението. Запетаята на подсъзнанието не спира да движи пръсти над клавиатурата изписвайки всичките [...]


    11. Един инфаркт и три минути извън битието- това е, което реално се случва в този разказ, който е толкова наситен и сгъстен като внушение, че оставя впечатление за роман. Много въздействаща проза!



    12. Многопластов текст Говори за 3 минути неизразимост несложно, премерено, а за всички останали мигове "около" отвъдното време - отново несложно и дискретно опоетизирано.
