"Love and torment, lunacy and desire, tenderness and war - the stories in Bats Out of Hell provide a brilliant, dazzling odyssey into American life. A man is possessed by the spirit of an eighteenth-century noblewoman every time he plays chess; a crippled boy yearns for brotherhood; dreaming and spinning lies to one another, a group of old men wait for death. No one but Barry Hannah could create this vivid world - and explore the nature of lust, captivity, and love in marriage." "Barry Hannah's reputation as a master of the short story, first established in 1978 with the publication of Airships, is magnified in this volatile, long-awaited collection of new stories. Astonishing in range and in portrayal of the human heart, these fierce and radar-perfect stories give us individuals in whom hilarity and pain combine with true and startling clarity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Some really boring and overly long stories, which is too bad, since Hannah's best work usually comes through concision. Still, a few great stories mixed in with a lot of fertilizer. Far from his best writing---the man never really made it through the early 80s in terms of his best output. In breaking free of Lish's insane editing, I think Hannah went a little too far into maximalism, where his normally blistering language feels more bloated than electric. ( )

Barry Hannah’s full range of talent is on display in this collection. The stories aren’t all pure masterpieces as in some of the other collections, but there are twenty-three of them and they seem to be a good representation of his short fiction.

Many of the stories are about ageing, regret, and unfulfilled potential. “Rat –faced Auntie” tracks a trombone player’s rise, fall, and eventual embracement of the tragedy of his life. “Slow Times in A Long School” is about the failure of and tragedy of popular high school kids that grow old in an unseemly fashion. In “Upstairs, Mona Bayed for Dong” a man and his wife accept inevitable change and growth, helped by love.

As always, Hannah is the master of the turn of phrase. A man is considered “unable to swim rightly in his life and times.” An old morphine addict “was fascinated by Guns. He was also a foe of dogs everywhere.”

“Bats Out of Hell” is another wonderful collection of Hannah’s short stories. ( )

We read selected stories from this in a Living Writers class back in 1997. Decided to read the whole book. Good subway reading. ( )
