 About the Book 

We who love prose fiction love these miniature tales both to read and to write because they are so finite- so highly compressed and highly charged. Joyce Carol OatesPeople who like to skip cant skip in a three-page story. Grace PaleyTheMoreWe who love prose fiction love these miniature tales both to read and to write because they are so finite- so highly compressed and highly charged. Joyce Carol OatesPeople who like to skip cant skip in a three-page story. Grace PaleyThe short-short story is an exercise in virtuosity that tightens the circle of mystery surrounding what we know. John LHeureuxIt can do in a page what a novel does in two hundred. It covers years in less time, time in almost no time. It wants to deliver us to where we were before we began. Its aim is restorative, to keep us young. Mark StrandThere are, in truth, more kinds of short-short stories than I ever knew of or imagined. Wonderful! I rejoice in the richness and variety of all these voices. George GarrettThis collection represents the richness and variety of American writers. The 70 pieces themselves--highly compressed, often tantalizing--display a multiplicity of modes and derive them a variety of traditions. Publishers Weekly
