The End, by Anna

4.67  ·  Rating details ·  30 ratings  ·  6 reviews
Anna’s greatest artwork would have also been her last: live-streaming her death of exposure on a remote stretch of tundra. Part love triangle, part meditation on performance art, and part archival document of a creative prodigy, this genre-bending short novel is an intelligent and emotionally resonant work from a bold and ambitious new literary voice.

When I got to the end of Anna, I started to question why people even bother writing novels. I read this thing in an hour at a gingerly pace and yet I was hit the same heap of emotions, introspection, and exhaustion that I would get from a book many times its length. I immediately grew accustom to the life and times of four distinct characters, their conflicts, and the overall premise. Wtf is art? What are artists? What is the job of an artist?

This is such a tight novella. It sucks you in then gets you when you're not expecting it. Looking forward to reading more of this author's fiction!
