Dog Bites Book
By Jennifer Schuessler

I’m not sure it will lead to a renaissance of the short story as hoped, but this animation of a single sentence from Lydia Millet’s “Sir Henry” is pretty cool.

The sentence is pretty great too: “Sometimes he wished he could gather all the dogs he loved most and walk off the end of the world with them.”

Luca Dipierro’s video is a project of Electric Literature, a bimonthly anthology of short fiction available via Kindle, iPhone and, eventually, paper and ink. So far so good: the current issue also features work by Michael Cunningham, Jim Shepard, T Cooper and Diana Wagman.
