Waiting for the bullet :
short fiction /
|Main Creator:||D’Arcy, Madeleine|
I wish I had known the things I needed to know in life at the time I should have known them. It's a line that couldn't contain a more simple sentiment, but this kind of unaffected language is emblematic of Madeleine D'Arcy's collection of short stories as a whole. Her refusal to bow down to a style that conceals rather than reveals as in through suggested meaning, elusive language or convoluted plots is a sensibility that is reflected in the stories' structures themselves. Rather than 'stories' as such, they are more like snapshots into a moment in time, into how a particular character feels on a particular day, and are all the more powerful for that.
