Publisher's Summary

55 stories. 55 words each. No more. No less. Enjoy this collection of flash fiction with a sinister twist.

Size does matter in these delightfully tiny tales populated with narcoleptic drivers, bickering backers, suspicious spouses, and other memorable characters. Full of dark humor, intrigue, and absurdity, this collection of slightly sinister (and occasionally sweet) stories delivers a bite-size reading experience to satisfy any literary craving.

Two dueling narrators give their own dramatic twist to the audiobook version of these darkly amusing tales.

Wild. Twisty. Fun. Different.

I'm not much for fiction. But I'm crazy about this. It is punchy and edgy and satirical. It has the rhythm one would expect more in a joke, than a novel, yet it reaches further and in odder dimensions than mere jokes. I think the female narrator is pitch-perfect. The male not so much.
