Picking up from a topic posted about last month:

Can anyone point me to some really good examples of minimalist writing,
either as is or "before" and "after" examples?

I'd really like to see examples of how other writers have achieved a
minimalist style.

This is in the spirit of John M. Carroll's work on minimalist

By the way, I've seen enough of the research -- I'm currently looking
for empirical examples. Especially in the last ten years, but if older,
I'd still love to take a look.

Thanks in advance,
