Mermaids and Butterflies

Von:
Mermaids and Butterflies
“Mermaids and Butterflies” is not even remotely as lighthearted as the title might lead one to believe. Called "an unsettling tale of loss and loneliness" by editor of CICADA magazine Deborah Vetter, the magic realist short story dumps readers into the life of a disturbed, unnamed protagonist as she is confronted with the question of what a person is and how a person can change.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with a morbid sense of humor or that thinks this guy is in need of a reality check. Now that I've read your other comment on magic realism then reread the piece, I now fully understand the adults in the story and why no one was REALLY concerned with... mehr anzeigen

If it was a first way to creep people out but still entertain them, i think you can put it in the list of success :)
