Buttaci has a delicate touch with his pen and he's fantastic at telling stories, stories with wide range and the commonality of insight, humor and strong resolution. Buy the book for yourself, buy a copy for a friend and get ready to enjoy what a strong short story collection can offer: utter entertainment in bite-sized bits. I like to think of these stories the way I think of those portion-controlled, pre-packaged desserts: when I'm done with one, why not another?
Yes, each piece is a complete short story and with many you want to know what happens next but what happens next is an all-new story that will keep your eyes focused on the page. You'll want to take a break to absorb the skill with which these pieces are crafted.
Here is a very talented writer in a brave new writing format. If you're familiar with Buttaci's other work, you'll be pleasantly surprised here, no, not pleasantly surprised, delighted. I urge you to add Flashing My Shorts by Sal Buttaci to your collection of must-read volumes. This is a book I shall read again and again.

Mr. Buttaci makes his reader think, laugh, and pause to feel what the writer was experiencing. I recommend this book to anyone in need of a dose of reality mixed with humor. If you enjoy flash fiction you definitely won't want to leave this book out of your collection.
