Here’s another fun example:

As described on the Harvard Bookstore site:

One of the first books of its kind, all the stories or chapters in this collection are 140 characters or less. But don’t mistake brevity for lack of depth. Deceptively complex, ranging from philosophical musings on literature and writing, to the nuanced terrain of anxiety, self-disappointment, and disintegrating relationships, these stories will stay with you for much longer than it takes to read them. Cormier’s stories, taken as a whole, show a uniquely melancholy yet optimistic world view, conveyed with more wit, humor, and unflinching empathy than many writers can fit in an entire novel.
