Sudden Fiction (Continued): 60 New Short-Short Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Remember Sudden Fiction International--that bounty of short-short stories from all over the world? Literary folks loved them. Students carried the book around with them. And people on the run found the length of each story (no more than 2000 words) perfect respites from their busy lives.

Responding to America's love affair with the short-short, editors Shapard and Thomas consulted nearly two-hundred magazines and chose the sixty stories, written in English or translated, that they considered best. Ranging across countries and cultures, the selection includes a number of new stories from the Pacific Rim.

Well-known writers--William Maxwell, Margaret Atwood, Don DeLillo, Mark Richard--join lesser-known writers--Molly Giles, Andrew Lam, Judy Troy--who will be (or should be) better known. Each story revels in its own element of surprise; each, whether traditional or experimental, proves that a tale told quickly offers pleasure long past its telling. Students and lovers of literature take note: this is serious writing that's fun to read.

Synopsis:

Succinct, superior, surprising--it all adds up to Sudden Fiction (Continued), a stellar collection of sixty short-shorts from the editors of Sudden Fiction and Sudden Fiction International.
