Cannibal Lovers (a flash fiction story)

Rated 3.33/5 based on 3 reviews
A little piece of dark, experimental avant garde noir. By 'little' I mean one paragraph. Make of it what you will and let me know if you like it. I generally write prose or poetry, this is something in between, more stream-of-conscience.

About Sherry Donacy

Sherry Donacy was born in the heart of the Deep South to Protestant ministers. As she grew, her parents' bigoted and often psychologically abusive beliefs came more and more into conflict with her own. At an early age -- despite being on her high school's honor roster and having several scholarship offers -- she ran as far away as she could and was homeless for several years on the streets of Seattle. Eventually, with the help of a local Wiccan priestess, Sherry realized her potential and acquired her GED. Sherry works as a notary and wedding officiant, though writing has always been her creative outlet. She has a vast portfolio of unpublished and forthcoming works with Isaac's Bible being the first release.

Quite a pretty, creepy paragraph.

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on Oct. 12, 2013 :
It is a hard one to rate. As the author herself says this is but an experimental piece, and you can draw out many things from it.

But because it is vauge and short, this also means that with each individual reading each reader can take very different things (be they thoughts, feelings, ideas...etc.) from it. And for me, thats what makes it interesting.

For myself, the first time I read it I thought it was about an idividual who had suffered some shock in there life, and the shock changed them to something much tougher and cruder and much less gullible. I was'nt a million miles away, but having read the afterword which describes a bit more of what it is actually about, when I again re-read it, it did make much more sense.

I'm not a big poetry or prose poem fan, so am not the best person to review this really.

However, the piece and its afterword taken together form an interesting writing experiment; the author seems to have set herself a tricky challenge, and the results are, in the main, good. A strong, otherwordly voice is created through the writing, and an atmosphere is built.

Personally, I didn't get much out of the content, but I did enjoy the writing; it shows imagination and flair. And I always love Afterwords.

Despite its brevity and non-narrative, this is still better than many.
