About the Book

Synopsis We were in a rush to do nothing. At the end of this statutory holiday where nothing occurred, we went home, turned on the radio or the television and anticipated an advertisement from a calm androgynous voice: “Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for being with us. Here is this evening’s flash fiction.” A sparsely worded text can hide many surprises. Selling points Author Ian C. Nelson offers a collection of flash fiction, texts about everyday life.
