Alex Epstein Uses Facebook Album To Release Book

Author Alex Epstein is using Facebook as a medium to release his latest short story collection For My Next Illusion I Will Use Wings.

The Israeli author published 88 pieces of “micro-fiction” as images in a Facebook album to create what he is calling a Facebook book. He explains the idea in this blog post: “The idea of publishing an entire new collection of very short stories on Facebook was, in part, an experiment to see how literature can become more social…wanted to see if it could be different: how literature could evolve if the reader can see who of his friends likes the same stories, who is sharing the stories he shared with others, how does the book endure with readers’ comments on every page, visible to all.”

Electric Literature has published a sample from Epstein’s collection on their Facebook page, which will be translated from the original Hebrew into English.
