This is a great collection, bringing an unusual slant to what you think you know then challenging the thought process and beliefs. The writing is superb and the characters strange yet believable.

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.

"Twisted," a collection of four haunting and addictive stories, provides a fresh and personal interpretation of the juxtaposition of art and life. On the surface, the distinction between art and life is clear: life is real and natural, and art is artificial. But the more you think about this distinction, the more lines get blurred until the Creation and the Creator, the Art and the Artist, become one. This idea has fascinated writers and artists -- and Uvi Poznansky is both, as well as a software engineer! - since at least Victorian times. Oscar Wilde believed that "every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist not of the sitter," referring to the emotions and "soul" that the artist puts into his/her work.

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.

...So what’s this book about?
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 ;-)

The poems and short stories here are not the usual. They take you down a whole different path. A new spin on known characters, unexpected bravery and beauty you would not expect to find in the settings. Riveting, she is a master at wordcraft.
