The Old Forest and Other Stories by Peter Taylor

the old forest peter taylor

Sometimes cinematic in its images—the boy standing looking into the fully-stocked fridge, while his sister and her boyfriend are silent in the next room; a woman's voice and carriage changing, in the instant the light switches on—but not grand cinematography, more like filmmaking out of day-to-day events that would seem pretty ordinary to the people not experiencing them. Rankin was shot and hanged the same night. This historical fiction deals with the problems of Sorry and his small island facing the control of Japan and needs of the United States. Taylor masterfully brings out the tension beneath each relationship and in each seemingly simple situation in a way that accurately transmits the feeling of this most troubled time and place. Nat, however, also shows how much control Caroline has in their marriage, especially in her insistence that she manages the wedding and pushes him away for that memorable day only a week before their wedding because she has so much work to do.

THE OLD FOREST by Peter Taylor

Taylor always did an exemplary job of showing the whites of his world in such a light; these stories reveal the same sympathy for the black individuals he, and his society, knew, and his presentation of these complications in this collection is, indeed, commendable.

The Gift of the Prodigal by Peter Taylor

the old forest peter taylor

We can run into a Forest with the intention of coming out the other side as someone new-or, we can run into the Forest and never come out. I was hoping the other stories would be up to this standard, but most of them are not as outstanding. Caroline embodies a middle path through the conflicting generations and social movements that allows her to follow her desires and gain the future she wants without excluding herself from the values she has learned to accept. Among his passive descriptions of the woman he was to spend the rest of his life with, readers are shown a more progressive side to Caroline that Nat has not realized yet. A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. . It was a rare find for me.
