<p>small things is a book of mini-anti-essays, part of Sky Gilbert's project to dismantle and challenge the rigid classifications of genre. The purpose of this kind of genre bending is to challenge 21st century notions of truth. Inspired by Oscar Wilde, Foucault, and the post-structuralist project, the small writings in small things are story, essay, and memoir combined. They challenge the notion that an essay is necessarily fact, or fair opinion, or even informed opinion, while at the same time challenging the notion that fiction might necessarily be free of didacticism, or at least, ideas.
