"slow dance" by Stacey Teague
regarding Sadmess by Ana Carrete
Ana Carrete’s Sadmess is clean. Her sentences her words her stories. Clean in the sense that there are no extra words, no unnecessary parts within these stories. Her writing in Sadmess has not lost the thing that makes it interesting. Rather with the change from writing poetry (in her previous Make Believe Love-Making and Baby Babe) to writing these stories, the thing that makes her writing interesting has been magnified.
With these stories she writes the history of us, how we live today and now and how we have always lived today and now. Although she has written a history of us, she has done so by revealing and absorbing an individual history. And that is the most important way and that is the most important kind.
The above page is the first story in Sadmess. Highly recommend you buy your copy as she only made 100.
