“I hear the words spoken aloud when I write my stories — how he, she, they or I — how we are saying them. I am delighted to be able to share this sound of my book — Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine — with you!” –Diane Williams
TODAY we’re proud to present Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine by the great Diane Williams. We recorded this book with Diane in New York and she was an absolute dream as a narrator. The audiobook is now available here!
“A taut collection of flash fictions that are often beautiful but impenetrable, structured like little riddles to unspool. While it is easy to compare Williams’s work to that of Lydia Davis, another expert writer of absurdist shorts, this collection stands in its own category as defiantly whimsical and weird… Williams creates stories that can be consumed in small bites. But she provides enough material in each to chew over for an entire meal.” —The New York Times
The very short stories of Diane Williams have been aptly called “folk tales that hammer like a nail gun,” and these forty new ones are sharper than ever. They are unsettling, yes, frequently revelatory, and more often than not downright funny.
