Mooreeffoc, by Tetiana Aleksina

The first question I had before reading Tetiana Aleksina's Mooreeffoc was "What's the deal with this title?"  Coffee room backwards?  The last question I had after reading it was "What's the deal with this story?"

Cats.  Channeling their experiences.  Contemptuous of their keepers.  Talking.  Drinking coffee.  Nothing really happens, a series of impressions.

I can't really say whether this is great literature or not.  The good news: it's super short.  So you can either a) be pleased that you didn't spend a lot of time reading it, or b) read it again and again. 

If you're looking for a narrative short story, keep looking.  If you're looking for a sort of hallucinogenic text stream that might make more sense after a few readings, Mooreeffoc might be right up your alley.

Thanks to the author for the complimentary electronic review copy!
