I have bee reading Ann Beattie for almost 50 years and she does both novels and short stories. She is masterful with her use of language but sometimes her plots and stories don't alway work. These stories have a a common thread of moving from one topic to another in a way that is entertaining but somewhat hard to follow as it relates to the actual stories. However, this book is a good introduction to an author that does a. great job with relationships and has written some excellent books over the years.… (més)

Don't read this collection of dull stories expecting any insight into Maine or its residents; it was clearly written by someone "from away" and many of the stories bear no relation to the state at all except a throw-away line or reference. I assume they were added later when the author was searching for some way to tie together these meandering fragments.

I am not a big fan of short stories, but when I saw this collection by Ann Beattie, I couldn’t pass it up. Onlookers is a compilation of linked stories that take place in Charlottesville, Virginia during the time of Covid and political distress when “any intelligent person has been driven half mad.” Readers may remember the white nationalist demonstration turned violent that occurred there in 2017. References to Charlottesville’s controversial statues and residents’ views permeate (but do not dominate) the stories. Rather, these are tales of a time, a place, a community, and some of the characters who inhabit it.

I loved Beattie’s wickedly clever and astute observations of life. There were many gems, but one of my favorite was that misinformation on social media has become the modern Paul Revere. It was a pleasure to read such literate pieces.

As you read the stories, try to remember the characters from each story, as relationships to them may appear in later tales.

Thanks to #netgalley and #scribner for the ARC.

The stories are about boring characters. I couldn't really feel any of them. They seem to always be white people with pointless existences.
