    One thought on “Endless Short Story”

    1. I hadn’t heard of New York publisher the Fiction Collective before chancing upon this book. They seem like an interesting avant-garde press with a bagful of unpublishable arrogance up their sleeves. Brilliant. This book contains a series of formally innovative stories that use typography and punctuation-free mayhem to make their mark. In some cases the form determines the content, as in ‘Boxes’ (stories in little text boxes) or ‘Verticals and Horizantals.’ In other cases, the experimen [...]

    2. I was hoping to get some kind of brilliantly constructed circular narrative here, but this is actually just a collection of experimental short stories that intermittently play on the idea of an "endless short story". And while that phrase is really more interesting in and of itself than it is in any of the contexts that Sukenick creates for it, there are a few super cool ideas floating around in this book. I loved the opening story where Simon Rodia buries his car in his backyard, and the car be [...]

    3. This is off-beat writing, I enjoy this style of writing but this was just blah. I'm also a fan of Sueknick's work reading "Up" and "Death of the Novel" The best part of this scribbled mess is the section labeled "Duck Tape" which is great dialogue with brain storming on how to write this novel, if thats what you call it.

    4. I keep reading this Sukenick guy. I don't entirely know why. Can't say I know entirely what he's about. He seems to keep blowing stuff up with his word=bombs. The kind of thing Franz most feared finding on his doorstep ; yet another wordbomb from FC2. No plot ;; no characters. This must be a good thing. But you probably wouldn't like it.

    5. Sukenick forces a sort of exaggerated perception, pointing out what is important. Or distracting you just to be an ass, I’m not really sure.
