by Darren Cormier

Book Image Not Available
Overview
One of the first books of its kind, all 140 stories in this first collection are 140 characters or less. But don't mistake brevity for lack of depth. Deceptively complex, ranging from philosophical musings on literature and writing, to the nuanced, emotional terrain of anxiety, self-disappointment, and disintegrating relationships, these stories will stay with you for much longer than it takes to read them.
Description
One of the first books of its kind, all 140 stories in this first collection are 140 characters or less. But don't mistake brevity for lack of depth. Deceptively complex, ranging from philosophical musings on literature and writing, to the nuanced terrain of anxiety, self-disappointment, and disintegrating relationships, these stories will stay with you for much longer than it takes to read them. Cormier's stories taken as a whole show a uniquely melancholy yet optimistic world view, conveyed with more wit, humor, and unflinching empathy than many writers can fit in an entire novel.
