Purtând subtitlul „roman”, volumul Microficţiuni cuprinde de fapt 500 de proze scurte – de o pagină fiecare – , care alcătuiesc un tablou ironic şi fără compromisuri al societăţii contemporane.


Deşi nu sunt traversate de un fir narativ comun, cele 500 de texte alcătuiesc o vastă frescă a lumii moderne, evidenţiind viciile, dar şi calitatea umană a unei societăţi în degradar...more

Some concept book, 500 stories, 2 pages each. It felt like reading a 21st century "les Miserables (for the epic size) meet American Psycho (for you can guess what)".
