Danse Macabre (Short Story)

Write on: Sat, 03 Dec 2016 by  in Petros' Reviews Read 4564

Hughes' little novelette is the short story of the year.

“Blue always preferred numbers to words. Words have power. Words hold painful truths and delicious lies. Just one word can stir up a hundred memories and a thousand feelings so that you can be hurt by a word or killed by a sentence.”

Laura is a virtuosa of prose. Dancing between beautifully written allegories and masterfully placed expositions, she has written an ostensibly "non sequitured" story with vivid imagery and even pace. Danse Macabre is a fast, one-hour read, and the paperback costs only four pounds, so do yourself a favor and buy it now

Petros is the creator & owner of BookNest. He lives in Patrai, Greece, where he works as a betting agent.

In his free time you may find him reading books, watching TV, and participating in Roman orgies (not really). 

He also has an infatuation with sloths that others might call unhealthy.
