Now imagine “[a]n ultra-short story that … brings to mind a fly thinking it might drive a car, a raindrop imagining it will drown a city, a particle of dust readying itself to make you stumble.”


I came across the above quote while looking at today’s offerings in my “reader.” It is a description of Elisabeth Tonnard’s The Story of a Young Gentleman. It neither mentions flowers nor sidewalks nor quays but still seems fitting.
