The Devil's Treasure by Mary Gaitskill


In this video for Electric Literature's Recommended Reading, Luca Dipierro animates and scores a sentence from "The Devil's Treasure" by Mary Gaitskill. The sentence: "Meanwhile, women came flying at him, loving him, swarming like hornets, beautiful with love, drunk with love, near-crazy with love, sick with it, buzzing all around him, looking for the beautiful soul the sensed unerringly."




In this short film presented by Electric Literature, a sentence from Etgar Keret's short story "Todd" is animated by Tatia Rosenthal and set to music by Christopher Bowen. Keret's new memoir, The Seven Good Years, was published this month by Riverhead Books and is featured in Page One in the current issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
