Erhan Memiş’s stories are all skin and bones.
Brilliant, agile, and dignified.
Night Sky consists of stories that showcase their peculiarity at a glance through their unorthodox use of language, bold ergodic plays, the tone of its narrative, and the situations it deals with. All in search of a moment of epiphany, the stories exhibit themselves as fragments rather than a complete piece, and each fragment includes its very own interpretations and specific “instants of decline”.
Ibsen brings pieces of the past in line with an orderly manner. And Beckett’s plays urge the readers to deal with multiple, performative interpretations. Memiş, on the other hand, points to the “whole” with its fragments, throwing the reader to the performative frontiers of Beckett.
Night Sky makes a case for literature’s mesmerizing ability to create intense and tragic meanings from seemingly minute and absurd moments.
