Flash Fiction Forward: 80 Very Short Stories
Author
Robert Shapard
ISBN
9780393328028
After publication of the first Flash Fiction anthology over a decade ago, flash became part of the creative writing lexicon for readers, writers, students, and teachers. In this follow-up collection, the editors once again tackle the question: How short can a story be and truly be a story? Determined to find the best flashes from America in the twenty-first century, James Thomas and Robert Shapard searched everywhere for stories that were not merely good but memorable. Moving, and certainly unforgettable, this collection includes stories from the best and most popular fiction writers of our time, including Ron Carlson, Robert Coover, Steve Almond, Amy Hempel, A. M. Homes, Grace Paley, and Paul Theroux. In addition, Rick Moody properly defines armoire, Lydia Davis delves into a world of cats, and Dave Eggers explores narrow escapes. Over and over, these stories prove that often less is more."Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Robert ShapardPublisher: W. W.
