Not short-stories, or novellas, but novels up to about 150 pages. I have noticed that these are on the increase, in several languages. Has anyone else noticed this phenomenon? Because I think it's rather interesting that there is an alternative to 800-page blockbusters. That there is a yearning for the concise and sometimes poetic, as opposed to the huge, multi-threaded story,
There's even a shelf in my local library devoted to these short works. I hope other libraries and bookshops follow suit.
