Dinski, Will – Others: Two Short Stories About the Disenchanted and Solitary
Others: Two Short Stories About the Disenchanted and Solitary
Here’s another mini from Will Dinski that defies scanning. I’m hoping that scan looks better on the website than it does on my preview page, but here’s an online edition of the first story of this mini, just in case. That tweed binding pretty much kills any attempt to scan the innards, sorry. As it says in the extended title, there are two stories here. The first is about a Pressman who works nights but, due to a disinterest in sleeping, takes his place as a regular nine to five worker, all the way down to sitting in rush hour traffic for no good reason. The second is told from the perspective of a bird but deals with crowds and the inevitablity of being drawn back into them whether you like it or not. It’s a surprisingly cheerful book for something that seemed so melancholy from the description. As always, the man has an amazing ability to pack some serious insights into a tiny thing. And you can even read the first half of it for free! $5
