Coffee Break Tales : SHORT STORIES
By hilary west
A collection of very short stories for a coffee break.
"After removing his hat, scarf, and mantle he came to the front of the stage, settling his coat, pulling down his cuffs with their large cuff- buttons, adjusting his absurd sash. He had very ugly hair; the top of his head, that is, was almost bald, while a narrow, black-varnished frizz of curls ran from front to back as though stuck on."
(Thomas Mann - Mario and the Magician)
"Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two equals four. If that is granted, all else follows."
"Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them."
(George Orwell - Nineteen Eighty-Four)
