By Pamela Stewart
Pamela Stewart is a self-described ?literary proctologist,? and her writing usually appears to be like into areas that folks often don?t are looking to glance. The tales in Elysium are concerning the problems of lifestyles all of us come upon as humans, the fragility of life?the actual, psychological, and non secular demanding situations we needs to attempt to conquer. they're approximately traditional humans, characters trying to find which means. everyone is rescued, yet no longer constantly within the means they was hoping for or anticipated. Stewart?s paintings is character-driven and empathetic.
Pamela Stewart spent two decades as a personal investigator, which gave her a different perception into human behaviour. ?Because I spent such a lot of years on my own in a motor vehicle looking at humans, my viewpoint on humans is a piece assorted. i might watch a person for 3 or so days in a row, and in that point get a pill model in their lifestyles; however it used to be skewed simply because i used to be a part of their existence, but no longer half. They didn?t be aware of i used to be in it,? she says. ?Writing approximately humans is more or less like that too.?
Praise for Elysium:
?... Stewart is obviously a flexible and inventive author who doesn't lose sight of the truth that powerful plots, believable characters, motion and clash force profitable brief tales. "... there's a experience in her fiction that Stewart has the endurance and perspicacity to get it simply right?to write significant, crafty, tales that let readers quick access.?(Front & Centre)
?Elysium?s most powerful tales provide greater than surprising situations, and concentrate on plausible characters. ?Le soreness? is ready Mildred, a lonely baker with a fondness for bread (and a tattoo of bread coming out of a toaster); the gripping ?Snow Angels? describes Emily, a brand new mom suffering from the guilt of witnessing an unintended loss of life. whatever yet angelic, Stewart?s protagonists make Elysium a daring debut.? (The style Magazine)
"Stewart writes in a transparent, spare variety that automobiles besides little ornamentation yet sometimes provides a metaphoric punch. ... The tales are excessive and compressed, usually leaving out connective tissue to accomplish ends and results often linked to poetry, and take advantage of rereading. but the booklet regularly is suffused with adequate natural humour and wit to maintain you smiling all through, if now not giggling out loud. With every one tale short adequate to be learn at a sitting, ponder Elysium like a field of narrative cakes, each particular and fulfilling by itself, even though they move down great in bunches as well..."
