Helen DeWitt Gets Animated

To

Tomorrow morning at Recommended Reading you’ll find a brand new story by Helen DeWitt. Until then, satisfy your cravings for fine fiction (and cheese and cats) with our latest Single Sentence Animation.

Animation by Erin Smith. Music by Spookfish.

The sentence: “Um, okay, no, not purring like, obviously, producing a sound that is more reminiscent of steam engine FX than your typical purr.”

Single Sentence Animations are creative collaborations. The writer selects a favorite sentence from his or her work and the animator creates a short film in response. You can find more here.
