The tales are very very short but intense, in my opinion you will appreciate the contrast of beginnings and endings of each tale

Format: Paperback
Every practicing artist knows that limitations can be inspiring, and the 75 artists gathered here offer an inspirational look at what can be done in the smallest of spaces. From Spencer Holst's perfect "Brilliant Silence", which opens the collection, through such masterworks as Allan Gurganus's funny-yet-wrenching "A Public Denial" & Bernard Cooper's enigmatic "The Hurricane Ride", to ending with Larry Fondation's eerie "Deportation at Breakfast", there isn't a runt in the litter. Frequently provocative, at times hilarious, and always satisfying, you simply won't get more bang for your book dollar than this anthology. Would-be practitioners of fiction take note: here's all the textbook you'll need. It's got it all: instruction AND delight.

Excellent travel or bedtime reading; lots of lovely stories to dip in and out of; also great way to fead lots of different authors and maybe discover a new writer you'd like to read more of. Some of them are quite thought-provoking because they're so short. I love this for travelling particularly or at bedtime when I don't want to get stuck into something where I'm looking for the end of the chapter because I'm falling asleep.

My daughter was told to read this book as part of her university study and as I am beginning my journey into writing flash fiction myself it seemed a great place to start reading. I loved the majority of these stories and they are definitely worth a read if you have just started reading flash fiction or you want some great examples of how to write entertaining flashes of fiction.
