There is a certain mystique about the collection giving it an exotic feel - definitely each piece a work of art.
Well done and thought provoking.
In Uvi Poznansky's book, you will explore this idea and many more (such as that vision is not a gift but a burden) through such characters as a clay figure, a ghostly woman, and a feline creature who never meows. Why? The answer is more complicated than you think. There is a reason this collection is titled "Twisted," and the unexpected but logical answer is on its pages.
This book (only 68 pages) is a collection of four short stories by California based author, poet and artist, Uvi Pozanansky. It’s hard to put it in a genre other than Literature/Fiction/Short Stories.
I'm not going to go into too much detail about the characters in the stories because I feel that the working it out for yourself if part of the appeal of the stories...
Story 1- “I am What I Am”
I must confess to being a bit confused by this tale at the beginning; maybe that was the point, giving us readers a sense of disorientation. There seemed to be a few contradicting facts which made determining when in history this tale was taking place and when in history our main female character was reminiscing about.
All of the characters were written with a skill that gave them depth and did become real for me and although my modern sensibilities cheer our main character's feminism throughout this short tale, her final declaration still confuses me.
Story 2 - "The Hollow"
I liked the 2nd story: The Hollow. I've never experienced a love that deep myself but this beautifully written piece captured my heart - it was very short but I found it very moving *sniff*
Story 3 - "I, Woman"
I liked this story, although it is the narrative from a very unusual character’s perspective.
It is beautifully written and made me smile at times.
“I, Woman” is also linked to a poem called Dust which is included in this book and the 2 subsequent images of sculptures that were also created by the author called Dust I and Dust II.
Story 4 - "The One Who Never Leaves”
I liked the final story it’s another tale that written from an unusual character’s perspective ;-)
...So, basically what I’m saying is...
I would definitely call this a literary collection of short stories. I have enjoyed reading this book over the past few months even if, at times, I felt it was beyond me/too high brow. This book has made me think about the meaning of life, my relationships with those around me and my own self view while entertaining me.
If you enjoy quirky, thought provoking novellas and short stories, I think that this book would make a welcome addition to your collection.
Each piece is unique with a special unique twist. There is nothing common about any one of them. A great escape into the complete unknown. There is a special quality to the writing. Something you don’t come across often enough. A complete joy.
There is art in good storytelling and Miss Poznansky has what it takes.
by Uvi Poznansky
The unique way in which Poznansky writes and defines stories is certainly one to be discovered.
Twisted is no exception with the wrapping together of many elements and emotions, touching the soul.
A perspective which will challenge the reader to explore new depths in this cleverly paced read.
Nicely done to torment the senses.
Highly recommended 5*****
