I liken this to a circus with lots of stunts and acrobaticsSo as not to get discouraged or intimidated skip the first story I should call the stories here properly as ACTS like in a real circus The Door because it is not easy to digest my interpretation of it is that it is some kind of an inter generational dialogue using the fairy tale of Jack and the Beanstalk as a literary allusion Go straight to some of the favorites like The Babysitter The characters and the setting a father his wife their three young children one of whom is just a baby Father and mother going to a party nearby They re leaving the kids with a young and pretty babysitter who likes to bathe in the couple s bathtub surreptitiously after she had finished attending to the kids needs Just outside however is her boyfriend and his pal waiting for the couple to leaveWhile at the party the father of the kids thinks of a good excuse to leave it so he can drop by their house and maybe surprise the babysitter naked in their bathtub He has the hots for her So with the babysitter s boyfriend s pal He wants to have a threesome with the babysitter and the boyfriend inside the couple s house Now that s the situation So what s the story Wrong uestion What are the STORIES That s much betterImagine parallel universes of different events and outcomes but with the same characters and situation And imagine the events in these parallel universes televised and you watching these events simultaneously with just a normal pair of eyes You can t watch all of them all of the time All you can do is to snippets of the unfolding events one at a time in each tv screen A virtual overload of visual stimulation which strangely I found highly eroticYou want pathos instead Try A Pedestrian Accident A man is run over be a motor vehicle and lies on the road He s still alive very much conscious can hear everything in pain has an acute sense of everything within his field of vision but cannot talk Coover surrounds him with oddball characters with their infuriating actions and dialogues Then feel death coming for this hapless victimThe Marker involves something we all have here at goodreads a bookmark But no one is reading here Instead we have a man his wife and later five policemen First the wife gets naked and invitingly lies in bed inside their bedroom Her husband then takes off his clothes puts off the light then feels himself towards the bed in total darkness He found the bed only after several tries He inserts it in felt dry nevertheless kisses her and he smells something bad Lights on enters the five policemen The wife had been dead for weeks and the husband sees himself in coitus with a smelly cadaver Now what about the bookmark Why the title I can t spoil your fun by answering these uestions Read itThere are many others to choose from each story a madness of a different strain The last one is entitled The Hat Act see they re ACTS with a magician as the principal protagonist uite apropos since each of the acts in this book is nothing short of magical
