Pasha Malla knows joy in all of its weird, unsettling, and wondrous forms. In their humor, warmth, and rigorous honesty, his stories clearly capture something odd and beautiful: the unmistakable feeling of empathy. The Withdrawal Method offers worlds where Niagara Falls has run dry, where people's skin can be shed in a single piece, and where ancient frustrated chess masters invent machines that unexpectedly alter the course of history. Reminiscent of Lorrie Moore, Haruki Murakami, and George Saunders, these stories are haunting, captivating, and constructed with a poise and precision that reach beyond technical skill.

Pasha Malla's extraordinary stories grant us entry into fascinating worlds: the complex world of children acting out half-understood fantasies of adulthood; the modern world of young couples navigating hairpin emotional turns; a near future world where Niagara Falls has run dry. The Withdrawal Method is a remarkably inventive, assured, and smart Winner of the Trillium Award. That Pasha Malla chose to title his collection of 13 stories under the header The Withdrawal Method is certainly ingenious, and quite effective, especially given that there is, if not sexuality, then at least some form of intimacy in each story.

The Withdrawal Method. A new short story by award-winning author Pasha Malla. Set during the summer in a small town on the edge of the Arctic Circle, "To Sweep the Light" is a love story about solitude and companionship, proximity and distance, and the quest for intimacy between a boy and a girl.

I thought maybe his short story collection would be on the flippant side, and not just because of its (IMHO not very apt) title, but more because of his hilarious silly punts on McSweeneys.

this is by far one of my favorite books. It's delicate and minimal. Each story leaves you with really strong feeling for days -sadness, nostalgia, loneliness-. Quite an experience.

I love Pasha Malla. I thought maybe his short story collection would be on the flippant side, and not just because of its (IMHO not very apt) title, but more because of his hilarious silly punts on McSweeneys.com. But no. The stories are mostly sad, a little bit funny, sometimes surreal, invested in the loss and manifest of what I call Americana but in this case should call Canadiana since most of the stories are set in Canadia, and this last quite unexpected quality: beautifully written.

None of the stories is like the others, and I was continually amazed at how inside everyone's heads Pasha gets. Middle aged blue collar white dude? Check. Estranged adolescent daughter? Check. Renaissance courtier? Check. And he has to be a basketball nut and have spent some time in or thinking about hospitals. My only critique was that a couple of the stories have abrupt transitions, like they were written in parts, or from different perspectives and then mushed together ("The Slough" and the Automaton Turk one are two where I felt this).

My favourite story was "The Past Composed" and I don't know why exactly. There was something clean and compelling about it, despite nothing drastic happening (no amputation, no bull in a china store, no chimp swallowing snake, no coma inducing accident).

Naturally I didn't love all the stories, but I loved the writing throughout. Every story had a few sentences or phrases that were flat out gorgeous, bits of description, setting, detail (I wish I had written some quotes down). (It was also the book that made me realise that short stories are great for subway rides.) This is Pasha's first book and I'm much looking forward to his next.
