My Very Significant Short Story
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
My Very Significant Short Story presents a sharp social satire of competitive 21st century America. In a deceptively simple and entertaining format, it deftly strikes jabs to subjects as varied as the media, politics, inequality, consumerism, technology, youth, art, literature, popular culture, and other topics, all in an uproarious package of less than 8,200 words.
My Very Significant Short Story constitutes an uneventful debut of sorts as Dickson He's first serious work (self-)published at the age of 20. It stands short enough for people who only read 140 characters to enjoy and priced for people who eat ramen regularly to afford.
My Very Significant Short Story follows a seemingly ordinary accountant named Robert who, prone to fiery internal monologues, tries to write a book amidst many distractions. He navigates life at CPA Farm in Bauston with crazy, offensive characters.
Steeped with irony, not even the author knows what this book means. Even if it does not rank as the next Great American Novel, it plays well for a few laughs and bouts of deep thinking, and laughing is healthy.
Sardonically, My Very Significant Short Story can be seen as "a book about nothing" or, at worst, "an experimental farce written by an angsty 20-year-old to test self-publishing." This may count as literature.
