9781477807620: Remember How I Told You I Loved You?

From a brilliant new literary voice, a collection of stories that follow a young woman from college into her early thirties—from delayed adolescence to (delayed) adulthood. Through college, careers, love affairs, and marriages, Linden’s characters try to sort out what separates the passing from the permanent, the actual from the possible, and exactly how involved you really have to be in the basic questions of your life. From familiar patterns like ambiguous friendships, uncertain love affairs, and unfulfilling jobs, Linden has created something new: a sharp and intimate take on romance and infidelity, trust and betrayal.

A deadpan narrative, cool and precise, about hesitation and doubt and how to rid your apartment of mice, Remember How I Told You I Loved You? is by turns witty, moving, and darkly humorous.

About the Author:

Gillian Linden received her MFA from Columbia University. She is a 2011 winner of the Henfield Prize for fiction. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband.

Review:

“Linden reveals herself to be a master of the small-yet-crucial details that fill these interior, urban spaces.”Refinery 29

"Using simple, straightforward language and dry wit humor, Linden fluidly pieces together an engaging portrait of young adulthood." Publishers Weekly

"Gillian Linden’s short story collection Remember How I Told You I Loved You? is understated to perfection." —New York Daily News

"Gillian Linden's Remember How I Told You I Loved You? is one of the year's sharpest short fiction collections, brilliantly capturing post-collegiate life in understated prose throughout these linked stories." Largehearted Boy

"Startlingly original in its array of details and unassuming sense of humor." STET

"Rarely have I read a debut collection of stories as engaging and perceptive as Remember How I Told You I Loved You. Gillian Linden writes with deceptive ease. With her wry, freshly observed details, every page is so thoroughly entertaining that you might not realize at first how profound her grasp is of the elusive intimacy her characters seek and fear at the same time. Nothing is forced. No false note is ever struck. With brisk, delightful clarity, Gillian Linden leaves us amazed at her talent for illuminating the most mundane of domestic enigmas." —James Wilcox, author of Modern Baptists

"Written with graceful purpose that makes these seven wonderful stories cohere as a single larger and truer story, Gillian Linden's charming and surprising fiction is rendered with an elegant literary thrift that makes Remember How I Told You I Loved You? an exciting debut." —Katharine Weber, author of True Confections

"With deadpan restraint, Linden captures the drifting disenfranchisement of post-collegiate life—its pretensions and joys, its cubicles and cats, and all those vegan boyfriends demanding their share of the rent." —Caitlin Macy, author of Spoiled

"Gillian Linden is a master of the understatement and a magician of the unsaid. These stories are narrated in voices soft in tone, but you'd be wise to listen up. The protagonists appear to be lovely young women, but watch your back. Breezy style belies a dark and devious undercurrent. Consider the ingenious title: Remember How I Told You I Loved You? Whatever comes next, it's not going to be sweet. This is a memorable collection of stories." —Binnie Kirshenbaum, author of The Scenic Route

"Gillian Linden has a telling feel for people icily locked at an emotional distance. She writes with a beautiful sense of off-beat control and dark deadpan humor--a lot of very surprising sentences without any sense of heavy lifting--and calmly lays out the details of a relationship that ultimately seems both utterly crazy and totally common at the same time." —Ross Klavan, author and screenwriter of Tigerland

“The conundrum of "who am I and where am I going?" is extremely relatable and engaging. The prose is fresh and not a single word is unnecessary or out of place in this 109 page collection. It is a light, quick read that offers a bird's-eye view of everyday life.” About.com

“Slyly amusing and highly relatable, these stories do capture the cellular loneliness we can feel during our twenties.” Black Heart Magazine
