Relativamente ampia raccolta di racconti brevi, opera prima, "24 Racconti" è il frutto pretenzioso dell'attività giovanile dell'autore, focalizzata in particolare sui temi dell'inettitudine alla vita e all' amore, l'incomunicabilità, la solitudine, i meccanismi di repressione socio-individuale, l'inesorabilità della morte e il significato dell'immortalità. Da segnalare, fra gli altri, due testi: "Davanti a una tela di Rembrandt", che indaga il significato della legge e, in senso più ampio, dell'esistenza dell' individuo nel contesto dei suoi simili, e "L'eden", la storia di un'iniziazione e, forse, di una caduta. Altri racconti esemplari: "Il postulante", "Il carceriere" e "Indiani".
