A legendary storyteller and writer who has charmed New York audiences for decades, Holst evolved his oeuvre in the 1950s-'60s milieu of Greenwich Village, influenced as much by sophisticated poets (e.g. Hart Crane) as by the fairy tales/tall tales his writings superficially resemble and wisdom parables (his work is often compared to Borges and Sufi stories). Brilliant Silence is a series of miniature fictions, each complete as a gesture of essential narrative and poetic vision. These minimal (but not minimalist), indeed optimal, acts of language create a new genre that offers mind-altering fiction in a space no larger than a joke.
