    The Collected Stories of Diane Williams

    Williams DianeMarcus Ben (INT)  著 Soho Pr Inc 出版 2019/9/10 出版

    the collected stories of diane williams brings together over three hundred new and previously published short stories as well as three novellas—distilled works of “unsettling brilliance (vanity fair) that have rewritten the rules of american short fiction.from ben marcus’ introduction to the collected stories of diane williams:“diane williams has spent her long prolific career concocting fictions of perfect strangeness most of them no more than a page long. she’s a hero of the form: the sudden fiction the flash fiction whatever it’s being called these days. the stories are short. they defy logic. they thumb their nose at conventional sense or even unconventional sense. but if sense is in short supply in these texts that leaves more room for splendor and sorrow. these stories upend expectations and prize enigma and the uncanny above all else. the williams epiphany should be patented or bottled—on the other hand it should also be regulated and maybe rationed because it’s severe. it’s a rare feeling her stories trigger but it’s a keen and deep and welcome one the sort of feeling that wakes us up to complication and beauty and dissonance and fragility.
