    This is what it means to write with economy. All of these short stories – and most of them are very short— are told in the first person. No flowery metaphors here. The voices do the heavy lifting, creating these little gems that are revealing and poignant. What Gavalda does with so few words is amazing. While many are emotionally affecting and thought-provoking, there is humor too. The end of “Junior” is the funniest thing I’ve read in a while.

    There is much said on Goodreads about the unreliability of first person narrators, as though it were a formulaic rule that a first-person narrative is always unreliable. I don’t think that’s necessarily true, at least no more so than it is for people telling stories in real life, who are sometimes less than forthcoming for various good or bad reasons, or self-deluded, or simply don’t have all the information. I also think it’s not as important as whether or not a narrator is self-aware. The very fact of the narrator’s self-awareness is what makes several of this stories work so well. They know what their problem is. Not that it changes anything. But they know. Other times their character traits, and not necessarily undesirable ones, lead them in directions that will wreck their lives, but circumstances have tripped them up. But character is fate. Deal with it.

    My favorites among the dozen stories in this volume include “Courting Rituals of the Saint-Germain-des- Pres,” “Amber,” “Leave,” “Lead Story,” “Catgut,” and “Junior.”

    The simplicity and the economy with which Gavalda tells a complete, plot-driven, arc-fully constructed story in very few pages, and the vivid voices used to do this, completely blew me away. I will be reading more of her. A shout-out, too, to translator Karen L. Marker.

    Is That So Much To Ask?, 5 Mar 2006


    I shifted somewhat abruptly. She stood back up behind me and put both hands flat on my shoulders. She said, I'm going to go. I want you not to move and not to turn around. Please I am begging of you.
    I didn't move I didn't want to anyway, because I didn't want her to see me with my eyes swollen and my face all contorted.
    I waited a while, and then headed to my car.
    Anna Gavalda has seen a lot in her life. This novel with twelve short stories of people trying to connect shows her capturing their inner dialogues with perfect pitch. Reaching out, knowing they are missing something and moving to the center to find exactly what it is. These stories, all small snippets of life. Coming-apart love, met-again love, aborted love, unknown love and of love lost all woven from separate stories into a theme.

    The saddest is the Pregnancy. The story of a new love and the nine months it takes to grow this new love, only to have an unknown enemy defeat it.

    In For Years' a man searches for his lost love. Not reality searching but in his mind. He knows where she lives but not why she left. Both of them have moved on but he knows not why. And, then one day twelve years later he hears from her.

    In Courting Rituals of the Saint-Germaine-des-Pres, an attractive woman smiles at a passing man, and he pursues her. He asks her out to dinner. They meet hours later, both with a purpose of their own. They are attracted to each other and she is thinking of what might happen after dinner, when all of a sudden his cell phone goes off. At that moment he shuts it off, but she sees him scrumptiously look a number of the caller. She knows that the evening is over, forever.

    each of these satires is better then the other, each one tells a separate but seemingly similar tale. These are the stories of a friend who is telling you bits and pieces of life. These are lively stories told with flourish and style. There is variety that surprises you, Parisian chic or hilarious, sophisticated farce. Anna Gavalda sees through ordinary appearances to our hidden longings. Highly Recommended. prisrob 3-4-06

    This collection of short stories by Anna Gavalda, a former high-school teacher and mother of two, won the Academie Francaise Short Story Award in 2000. The citation mentions the 'dry wit and almost involuntary elegance' apparent in the twelve stories. The translation (by Karen Marker, published in 2003) manages to preserve both the wit and elegance - these stories were fun to read.

    Courting rituals of the Saint-Germain-de-Pres, a country vet's terrible revenge, or an indelible encounter between a wild boar and a Jaguar which cannot end well; there are stories about longing and loss, a few almost unbearably poignant; others hilariously funny. Remarkably, in many cases, it's only in the last few lines that Gavalda reveals her hand.

    Many of the stories reach the level of Dorothy Parker at her best, which is to say they are very good indeed. Gavalda shifts easily between male and female perspectives; in almost every case the result is moving, without being sentimental, and is told with a dry, often devastating, wit.

    I was first attracted to the book by its title that I really liked and still do, I just loved the simplicity of it that means so much. But then I was really disappointed when I started reading it, it was BORING. Hear me out, i'm fond of boring stories/life stories where almost nothing happen cause like they say in Mr Nobody life is like a french movie, most of the time nothing happens so I like the truth that it implies. But this was just too much...I don't know how many times I gave up on this book before succeeding to finish it! Too much description for nothing concrete, characters for me undefined and too distant. I really wanted to like this book cause its title sounded so good to me, meant so much but I just can't... Maybe after some time I'll take it back again and see if I see it with another sight but for now I'll stay to the title.

    I've always been fascinated by the French because they have this sneering way of communicating they are completely above mediocrity. It might be apocryphal, but I've bought into it. Remember that fabulous film Diva? The bald guy who dedicated his life to assembling a 10,000 piece puzzle? In white? He was so cooooooooooooool ... Loads of internal coolness. That white canvas was just a token of his Zen-like internal refrigeration.

    It's possible I've been living under a misapprehension for most of my life that the French are better than the rest of us because of their exquisite sensibilities. Did it take Nicholas Sarkozy to show us that underneath it all they're really just as arriviste as the rest of us? Certainly you'd think so reading Ms. Gavalda and her foray into the class-based social shake-out of France of the 90's and the aughts. This book is peopled with awful human beings who are completely caught up in their mundane and banal existences. The first of these stories--I.I.G.--is about a woman newly incubating life. Her interior landscape is lunar at best. Her thoughts go like this:

    Bébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébébé....
    ad nauseum. (view spoiler)[When her baby dies and she is forced to give birth to a lifeless fetus, I was almost relieved that the train of her tedious, blank, baby-making blandness had been derailed. (hide spoiler)]


  8. Her Royal Orangeness Her Royal Orangeness says:

    “Life can be changed in just one fateful moment.” These are the words printed on the cover of “I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere” and they perfectly encapsulate the overarching theme that connects these stories.

    The stories in this collection are, for the most part, startling in a very understated way. For example, “Lead Story,” my favorite in this collection, is about a man who makes a decision to do something that doesn’t seem particularly out-of-the-ordinary, but leads to a devastating consequence.

    Anna Gavalda is gifted at creating characters. In just a few pages, she presented characters so well developed and complex that they seemed like real people. But what I admired most about the stories is how they lingered in my brain. The imagery was fresh in my mind for days after reading them, and I continued to puzzle over the subtle life questions that Gavalda poised.

    There were a few stories that I didn’t like much at all, but I think that was more a matter of a culture barrier than the quality of the writing. (Gavalda is a French author.) Overall, “I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere” is quite good and I enjoyed it. (3.5 Stars)


  9. Rebecca Rebecca says:

    This collection of short stories offers a good, satisfying mix of different voices, tones, and emotions. One of the things Anna Gavalda excels at is accurately reproducing the look and feel of our inner monologues to ourselves -- the self-doubt, guilt, awkwardness, fear, and muddle, but also the hopes, crushes, day dreams, inside jokes, and imagined futures that percolate through our brains on any given day. These stories also go by in a breeze that makes her writing seem effortless, but the themes are heavy enough that she can never be accused of vapidness or silliness.


  10. Lena Lena says:

    A strange collection of short stories in that they're not quite quotable, but often incredibly lovely and poignant. Some of the stories fall a little flat but the ones that work work so well that it makes up for it (Courting Rituals of the Saint-Germain-des-Pres, Leave, For Years, and Clic-Clac).
