The Guardian asked a few novelists to craft stories in 140 characters. Here are a few of our favorites.
Geoff Dyer:
I know I said that if I lived to 100 I’d not regret what happened last night. But I woke up this morning and a century had passed. Sorry.
Hari Kunzru:
I’m here w/ disk. Where ru? Mall too crowded to see. I don’t feel safe. What do you mean you didn’t send any text? Those aren’t your guys?
A.M. Homes:
Sometimes we wonder why sorrow so heavy when happiness is like helium.
Anne Enright:
The internet ate my novel, but this is much more fun #careerchange #nolookingback oh but #worldsosilentnow Hey!
