THE LAST RECTANGLE AND OTHER SHORT STORIES
- Ficha técnica
- AKRAM NAJJAR
Around 30 short stories with a non-narrative bent. Fantasies? Logically warped situations? Some very short, almost half a page.
These stories saw the light when the author was around 40 satisfying the writing urge he has always had. He had tried his hand at several literary genres before settling on writing short stories.
Moving away from socio-psychological or auto-biographical fiction, the author has concentrated on writing stories that move away from traditional narrative or plots that focus on psycho-sociological issues.
The stories are literary ventures, playing with literary devices, the fiercely fantastic, or magic realist. A series of houses that envelope a story each. A set of painters that contravene the principles of the Golden Ratio, Phi. A crab. A festival of laughter. A man who life is encumbered with non-psychological nor social difficulties. An afternoon spent by 4 unusual companions. Government exercises that leave citizens breathing with peace. A scarab and how to make one.
