Sudden Fiction. The stories in this book are all 350 words or less, give or take a few words. “There may be a difference between flash fiction and prose poems, but I believe the researchers still haven’t found the genes that differentiate them” —Denise Duhamel. Bret Lott describes sudden stories, otherwise known as flash fiction, as “a moment stripped of everything to reveal truly, deeply, a matter of life and death.” SUDDEN STORIES includes work by Molly Giles, Aimee Bender, Virgil Suarez, Judith Ortiz Cofer, and Melanie Rae Thon.
