Master of the short-short story Aug. 31 2010
By T Bowden - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Miniature stories--most only one or two pages long--that summarize the gist of a situation, relationship, character, or behavior in a way that a poem might. Although this and Blatnik's other previously translated work, Skinswaps, are only about a hundred page long, anything longer would become overwhelming, then boring. A lot happens in 50 stories, so You Do Understand has as much weight as a book three times its length. Recommended reading, especially for readers with heavy time constraints, who tend to avoid novels and even short stories become of time commitment, yet who want stories of consequence.
