Humour-Stanley-Donwood

BookNotes

Very short, strange short stories/ prose poems. I first read Stanley Donwood when I was doing my playwriting masters twelve years ago. Reading him again, it’s amazing how much I have been influenced by these singular stories and how much I have tried to emulate them in my own work.

  • Collection of short stories/ Prose-Poem that have the vividness and strangeness of nightmares. (A great example of Writing-From-the-Subconscious.)
  • All present tense and first person, giving an uneasiness to the odd situations.
  • Sometimes darkly funny, sometimes despairing.
