Anyone else tired of this recent minimalist trend in short fiction? Cookie cutter white characters named Jack and Amy and Ryan trying to sound all deep and somber with monotone dialogue and one-word answers (ooh, character 1 said something important and character 2 replied with just "OK." Ooh, the narrator randomly described a thematically resonant childhood memory of character 2 right before the closing paragraph, probably more samey shit like about that time there father took them to the lake, truly, I am in the presence of a master)
Where my maximalist niggas at? Crazy ass high flying prose packed with tons of allusions and hopping all over the place. Something like Ulysses for the 21st century. Beautiful stream of consciousness interspersed with mundane scenes something to get you to see the beauty in everything. Not more new Yorker shit. Please.
