jillian elisabetta Ciaccia, has been making the mundane profound since 1982, when birthing contractions struck a young mother at high noon during a July day in Brooklyn, New York. The result was a short story writer, whose precise word choice and obsession with the everyday has led to a series of literary portraits that underscore the beauty of, for example, dust, digestion, breathing, urinating, walking and various human behaviors, internal and out, conscious and subconscious.
If Proust and Nabokov had several dozen children, they would be the short stories written by thefictionist. Visually rich and equally thought provoking in wit, two volumes of shorts are available through her web site as an answer to your search for quality fiction and for your entertainment.
Three volumes of short stories, absurdities, peculiarities, and Monstrosities are available through this site as a downloadable PDF or as a print version, signed by thefictionist and bound by hand.
Both options are completely free of charge.
Highly imaginative yet inspired by the mundane, you will either adore or despise these works.
"Your book [absurdities] is extraordinary and inventive with so much to think about and read over, just as I knew it would be . . . Astonishing."
-- Susan Daitch, author of L.C., The Colorist, and Storytown
