With a distinctive and original voice, Mark Richard's stories capture characters on the fringe of society, and illuminate the goodness at the heart of their Southern, down-and-out lies. Full of startling images and harrowing epiphanies, The Ice at the Bottom of the World is a collection by a true master of his craft. In these ten stories, Mark Richard, winner of the 1990 PEN/Ernest Hemingway Foundation Award, emerges as the heir apparent to Mark Twain, Flannery O'Connor, and William Faulkner.… (mais)

This is, for the most part, an impressive array of Southern short stories. Each one carved out in their own unique space with distinct points-of-view, expressions and phrasing. "On the Rope" is an account of a man who is hired to drag for corpses and "This is Us, Excellent" is told from the POV of a boy with an abusive father and a petulance for a carnival ride, The Rocket Spin. Both these narratives definitely stood out to me as stellar examples Richard's style. I wouldn't begrudge anyone for giving it five stars or three for that matter, Richard is clearly a writer with an ear for language and depth of story but I think many reader's might be put off by the dense style and language of some of the collection.

From what I read of the author online, his real life would make a good novel. Reckless life from childhood, and worked as an aerial photographer and on fishing boats, among other drudgery. Anyway, this is a solid book of stories, gathered here in 1990, and he won the PEN/Hemingway for first book. Downtrodden and ignorant characters own most of these pages. Favorites include: "Happiness of the Garden Variety", in which two witless guys face a crisis which involves a dead horse and a motor boat. I chuckled and winced at this one. Another is "This is Us, Excellent", an oppressively abused wife and sons go out to eat and to an amusement park with the penitent dad, who meets karma on the Rocket Sling. The first story, "Strays", is also good. ( )

Mark Richard's voice in this gut-punch collection of stories recalls Breece D'J Pancake's Appalachian darkness (but not its pacing), and McCarthy's inebriated river-sloshed wordplay in Suttree. Of the 11 impressive shorts, "This is Us, Excellent" delivered the most powerful blow; a batterer compensates for his bursts of violence by taking his wife and two young boys to a pizza arcade. It is narrated from the disturbing perspective of the eldest child who, long exposed to abuse, is nearly entirely inured to it. This childhood indifference sheds subtle and interesting light on his long-suffering mother. ( )
