    1. This is a charming collection of short fiction. It includes 56 pieces which are two paragraphs at the longest and one sentence at the shortest. The writing is image-heavy and deals with mundane, humorous, and melancholy content that is quite relatable. Recommended for fans of Fernando Pessoa, Robert Hass, Jerzy Kosinski, and Frank O'Hara.
