A collection of 26 flash fiction pieces. These rapid and arresting short stories will keep you on your toes. Percesepe is a master of sharp turns, and, oh, how greatly I admire the stuff he notices, all of life’s “brilliant surprises,” and his concern with how people who bust up stay apart, because what can we do with the delayed understanding that happens after the leaving? This collection is a tender rush. Pia Ehrhardt, author of 'Famous Fathers & Other Stories' Gary Percesepe writes beautiful, vivid stories with the intensity and brevity of a man on the run. His fiction lights up the page with incredible bursts of poetry, passion, and pain channeled through characters whose names we rarely catch. In just a few short pages, Percesepe captures entire worlds of emotion – all of it so true and real, it’s impossible to look away. Jessica Anya Blau, author of 'The Wonder Bread Summer'
