Robert Shapard ´ 4 Summary

Robert Shapard ´ 4 Summary Sudden Fiction International Sixty Short Short Stories Summary ´ 104 “Sudden Fiction International is even better than its predecessor It's a fine te. Short short fiction had an in vogue period back in the late 80s early 90s when every bookstore and literary magazine seemed to be touting it I haven t studied this uestion but my guess is that these days short fiction is still popular but that very short pieces are no longer the flavor of the month Personally I think the style has its merits and can provide uick intense snapshots of things but if it is good it leaves you wanting Anyway this is a worthy collection of short pieces collected from all around the globe The USA probably has the most items in here but many nations across the globe are represented sometimes by prominent writers and sometimes not To be honest I can t say I was deeply moved by much here but that could be due to the nature of a collection like this than to the uality of the writing Once you begin getting into the mood and style of a writer s work all of a sudden the piece ends and you are on a different continent and listening to a very different voice Looking at what other Goodreaders have to say it seems like we all have different favorites from this grab bag Here are a few of mine RK Narayan s story about a grumpy ascetic who lives across the lane from a woman of ill repute had a nice twist at the end Monica Wood s Disappearing a mysterious piece about a fat woman who begins swimming a lot in a public pool and starts getting thinner and thinner Jeanette Winterson s intense surreal piece got my full attention She mixes together elements of classic myths and contemporary attitude and feminism Big names like Nadine Gordimer and Donald Barthelme make interesting contributions hers a dark tale of a sick suicidal woman and his an amusing look at a classroom where everything they deal with seems to die tragically I also liked J Bernlef s realistic suspenseful tale of a boy whose father is attacked by rabid dog
