I Am No One You Know - 9%

I am No One You Know - Joyce Carol Oates

I've read 2 of 19 short stories so far. It's... different. I love her writing style, and I love the way she creates her characters, even if those characters are themselves not very likeable. But both stories don't *feel* like complete short stories. They're more like fragments of stories - longer than flash fiction, but incomplete. It's a little maddening. And I'm not entirely certain what the point is of these stories. If they have a point?

In Hiding: A woman can comfortably expose herself through her poetry while hiding from real people when they seek her out?
