Following on the success of the Flash Fiction and Sudden Fiction series, Robert Shapard and James Thomas join with Ray Gonzalez in selecting works that each present a complete story in less than 1,500 words. Luisa Valenzuela, one of Latin America's most lauded writers, provides the introduction. Readers will delight in finding stars such as Junot Diaz, Sandra Cisneros, and Roberto Bolano alongside recognized masters like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Isabel Allende, and Jorge Luis Borges. They will discover work from Andrea Saenz, Daniel Alarcon, and Alicita Rodriguez, as well as other writers on the rise. In Julio Ortega's Migrations, a Peruvian writer explores how immigrant speech and ethnic origins are a force of meaning that evolves beyond language. In Hair, by Hilma Contreras, a Caribbean pharmacist is driven mad by a young woman's luxuriant tresses. These stories stretch from gritty reality to the fantastical in a mix that is moving, challenging, humorous, artful, sometimes political, and altogether spectacular.
