Very quickly, I will wrap this post on the stories read in February 2014, till now, which is 4 stories till now in the month.
I am keeping this very short since I am way too tired to write about each story, however from tomorrow I will.
Here goes the list of the four stories read this month:
1.Let there be Light by Robert A. Heinlein: Taken from the Collection: Future History – It is about the invention of light panels. It is about LEDs surprisingly, invented in 1962 and the story was written in 1940. A writer way ahead of his time.
2.Charles by Shirley Jackson: Taken from the collection: The Lottery and Other Stories – The story baffled me with the characters interchanging. Charles becoming Laurie and vice-versa. A stunning achievement.
3.The Nose by Nikolai Gogol: Taken from the Collection: The Collected Stories – I could not have missed this one. I had to read this one. A nose that falls off a man’s face and has a life of its own is not to be missed by anyone. Magic realism at its best.
4.Willing by Lorrie Moore: Taken from the Collection: Birds of America and Other Stories – Lorrie Moore is a favourite writer of mine. Again, I had to read her. The story is about a washed up Hollywood actress and her life as it was and as it is. Some great metaphors and life as it is.
