Editorial Reviews

Jean Rodenbough
Sal Buttaci is a master of flash fiction, those short prose pieces that tell a story in two sentences or two pages. This is his second publication of short fiction, and contains for the most part stories of an Italian boy growing up in New York or New Jersey with his immigrant parents and grandparents. I have suspicions that "Antonio Lanzetti" bears sharp resemblance to Sal. The stories abound with incidents in Catholic schoolrooms commandeered by stern Sisters, dangerous characters in the immig

Drawing on his Sicilian heritage and his experience as a writer and a teacher, Salvatore Buttaci has excelled in this presentation of 200 SHORTS (flash fiction).

In bite sized stories, and with humor and grace, Salvatore treats us to a compilation which has us laughing, crying, smiling, thinking.

He's a beautiful writer! His last book FLASHING MY SHORTS won much acclaim. Go on: add these books to your reading lists - treat yourself and buy one, or two, or three. Friends will lo

200 Shorts 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Short 'flash' fiction is a tricky art. A writer has to be able to incorporate the potency of poetry and the plot and character development of a short story. Well, if you want to learn how to do it well, read Buttaci's book. Likewise, if you just want a book of 200 dynamic and riveting stories for sheer entertainment, buy Buttaci's book. It's a great collection for anyone who enjoys a good short story (or 200 of them). -Jen Knox, author of To Begin Again

This collection is once again proof that Salvatore Buttaci is master of the flash fiction genre. A must have book.
