Comedy Short Story: Postmodernistic Love, by Marija Mrvošević / Mary Matshine

Performed by Val Cole

 1. What is your short story about?

About a boy and a girl. They meet. They part. It’s funny.

2. What genres would you say this story is in?

Satire. Comedy. Faux-romance.

3. How would you describe this story in two words?

Sincere. Humor.

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.

5. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

Devojka, Željko Joksimović (guilty pleasure)

6. Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

I don’t believe in all-time favorites. I change and my taste changes accordingly.

7. What motivated you to write this story?

I appreciate that the question is not about inspiration because motivation is also a powerful thing. And important. I guess I had this story in mind for a long time. There was this though about love in modern times and how it became something that it never should have become. A hard thing. A thinking process. But it’s not. It’s love. It’s light.

8. If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?

Benedictine Cucumber. No. Benedictus Cutenumber. No.
…Laza Kostić. My second inspiration.

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Art. My husband. Light.

10. What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?

My hands just followed a thought. Quite simple.

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Read. Write. In that order.
