Vi Khi Nao's A Brief Alphabet of Torture: Stories PDF

By Vi Khi Nao

Winner of FC2’s Ronald Sukenick leading edge Fiction Prize

An unflinching and riveting meditation at the soreness that attends each aspect of existence—love and sacrifice and intimacy and beauty—a biography of torture.

Like all of Vi Khi Nao’s acclaimed and award-winning paintings, A short Alphabet of Torture bleeds throughout many modes and genres—poetry, essay, fiction, drama—and itself nearly constitutes a singular of a distinct style. every one story captures the emotional, actual, mental, political, and creative issues that pervade reasonable breath and which, even if very attractive, are full of pain.


These tales are all features of Nao’s mind's eye that outline the best way she perspectives construction, sexuality, violence, and the function of lifestyles in an ontological method that is based seriously on cultural, social, and creative duress. a few tales like “Winter Rose” and “I Love You Me Neither” upward push above the bounds of ache to areas of good looks and beauty and love, the place discomfort has no position, yet clarify how infrequent such moments look in life.
