Roosts in his living room and then violently threatens him when he tries to make her leave In another a wife takes her husband to a city where it is women not men who are the dominant sex but was it all a hallucination when she finds herself tied to a board and dragged back to his car And in the unforgettable “Blackcurrant” two young. So I ve recently realized that I have a major crush on short story collections Naja Marie Aidt s Baboon is part of this epiphany This collection is abrasive and emphasizes the dirty human read as the eclectic genetics of a hot dog soaked in bleach Within mother hates child man hates woman woman hates woman et cetera The language here is direct gritty and apathetic each story offers parts of us we suppress and does so beautifully Once the world s collective misanthropy reaches its boiling point I ll be in a snowy log cabin with only my entire experimental short story collection and a box of Marshmallow Crispy Treats pondering the genetics of a hot dog soaked in bleach

Bavian Author Naja Marie Aidt

Women who have turned away from men and toward lesbianism abscond to a farm where they discover that their neighbor’s son is experimenting with his own kind of sexuality The first book from the widely lauded Aidt to reach the English language Baboon delivers audacious writing that careens toward bizarre yet utterly truthful realization. Skip the first story or at least read past it without prejudice It caused me to hate the book at first but I read on out of commitment to my reading group and am very glad I did Some real gems there like Torben og Maria Hun gr ter ikke and Tur i bil These stories are dark and disturbing but somehow not depressing per se I would almost want to own the book and be able to read the stories again later They are the sort that make an impact but you don t really remember them in detail Sort of like life and the estranged state of humanity itself that Aidt is out to capture

Beginning in the middle of crisis then accelerating through plots that grow stranger by the page Naja Marie Aidt’s stories have a feel all their own Though they are built around the common themes of sex love desire and gender Aidt pushes them into her own desperate frantic realm In one a whore shows up unannounced at a man’s apartment. the first work from danish poet and author naja marie aidt to appear in english translation baboon bavian collects fifteen dark yet memorable short stories aidt s brief tales are terse yet fleshed out with characters enduring situations both strange and imaginative offering a nod to the absurd and unbelievable baboon hums with revelation and foreboding the only thing i m not able to say about you is what you re thinking when you sit on the couch at nightmaybe you don t even know yourself translated from the danish by fellow poet denise newman inger christensenopen letter will publish aidt s first novel rock paper scissors in late summer of this year

    After reading reviews of this in the New York Times and the Los Angeles Review of Books I didn't think I would enjoy it very much From the descriptions of the plots of various stories—a woman who abuses her todder; a man who picks a perilous hike when his son's just been injured to tell his wife that he's fucking her sister—it sounded too unredemptively brutal for my taste Plus at least one review noted how
