Hello, I am so happy today to share with all of you the launch of "Small Portions" by Dieter Moitzi. I consider myself very fortunate to have met Dieter through the world of blogging. Having met Dieter, I have not only met a gifted writer who inspires me to get back to writing myself, I have also made a dear friend who always makes me smile and laugh. When I first read his blog, I was immediately drawn back to it time and time again. Dieter's stories seem to draw me in effortlessly and before I know it, I feel I have really experienced the story, and that does not happen to me very often. That is why I am excited to buy Small Portions myself, and I highly recommend you do so as well, I know you will be glad you did. While your ordering your book remember Christmas is right around the corner too! At this introductory price you can afford to give the gift of a good read, the gift of escaping in "Small Portions" at a time! I thank you ahead of time for supporting Dieter with a purchase and feel free to share this wonderful book on your blog or social media as well.
About the Book:
“Small Portions” is a story that comes in… small portions. In precisely 111 little parts – AND a recipe. To explore the many facets of modern life, the author has chosen the literary form of vignettes, those short impressionistic scenes that focus on one moment or give a trenchant impression about a character, idea, setting, object.
Dieter Moitzi tells his own story in poignant scenes that vary from a snapshot of his christening in the early 70s to his father’s death in a skiing accident at the beginning of the 2000s. It’s small things he talks about, those many small things that compose a life – his life. He recalls the painful process of coming out of the closet, relates in funny detail the first encounters and love stories of his happy-go-lucky twenties, delves with analytical distance into aspects and turning points of two long-time relationships. He takes you by the hand and guides you through the streets of Paris, the city he lives in. He writes about food and the internet and his travel experiences in Greece, Morocco, Vienna, Tunisia, London…
In just so many carefully chosen words, sometimes poetic, sometimes blunt, but always with a good deal of wry and self-deprecating humour, the author succeeds in creating little universes with each story. Each one stands alone, yet when you link them together, another story takes shape. The story of a life, the sketch of a person, the mirror of a time. Our time.
