Eye of a Needle

By Cornelia Fick

Literary fiction, Short stories | Paperback, eBook


"Like many of the best storytellers, Cornelia Fick is funny" — J. Bekker-Thesen. "What was most fascinating for me was the beautiful and elegant writing. It is clean and polished, laden with vivid and beautiful descriptions (this) is a gorgeous treat for fans of flash fiction and the short story." — Five Star review from Reader’s Favorite. For lovers of literary and experimental fiction, Cornelia Fick's debut collection is written with a compassionate eye for the fragile positions of women, the dispossessed and the poor. While experimenting with different styles and forms of storytelling, Fick displays an acute insight into the mysteries of human nature. Get a slice of life in a small South Africa town in 'Belinda'; take a cheeky look at love in 'Love At First Bite'; and delve into an abusive relationship in 'To Die For'. This is an accomplished and thought-provoking collection, infused with wit, insight and humor, all the while examining the decay and unseen emotional damage caused by inequality. These short stories are essential for fans of the medium, and will intrigue any reader. "A truly beautiful collection that deserves its place on any literary-lover's bookshelf" — T. Williams.
