Small Narratives is a collection of eight short stories by Anna Ferrari. Each story in Small Narratives has a different style, although they belong to a personal genre that I call the Fantastic Real. A terrific reading connects you to the meta-universe, in the footsteps of writers like Henry James and H.P. Lovecraft. The very nature of this memory brings the narrative to very high, intimate levels, revealing still unresolved traits of her personality. The first story of the collection, “Black and White,” portrays the lives of two playmates that would seem mismatched: a dog, White, and a cat, Black.
