No One Escapes Life Unscathed
Delve into the deeper reaches of the human condition and the darkness that lives there.
A girl haunted by her sister’s drowning. A boy desperate for his father’s affection. A woman forced to make a devastating decision. A man trapped by his obsessions.
Experience tales of love, loss, murder, and madness through this collection of flash and micro fiction.
Take a peek behind the smile of a stranger. Get a glimpse inside the heart of a friend. Scratch the surface and discover what is hidden beneath.
These stories will open your mind, tug at your thoughts, and allow you to explore the possibility that, even in the brightest moments, something is Hinting at Shadows.
Each selection is approximately 100 words, with a bonus section of Microbursts in which each story is told in 50 words or less.
My Review: This book is chock full of little power flashes. For those who would view the stories as flash fiction. For me however, the intensity within each of these masterfully written pieces places them on a while new level weaving them into astoundingly effective Vignettes.
A few of my personal favourites are: I’m Inside My Broken Self, Stockings and Windows, Here, Childhood, Alone, and Visions.
