I can’t think of another novel I’ve read that had so many beautiful words that evoked such expressive imagery outside of a Pat Conroy novel. But this was no ordinary “novel”… “52 FF” by Marc Nash is a collection of 52 stories that are 1000 words or less. In his prologue, he explains his background of this particular brand of storytelling and what inspired/motivated him, then says how we could read 1 story a week for a year. Well, I highly doubt anyone will be able to exercise that sort of restraint! I confess I read the entire thing in one sitting! It is obvious the author is incredibly skilled, and I was eager to see what each new story would bring. I loved each and every one of them, and thought they each had their own unique “flavor” or “message” – some easier to see than others, but all supremely interesting and engaging. Fans of the literary and surreal with an edgy twist will love this book!
