Format: Paperback
Once again feisty little Starcherone Press runs in and scoops the field, ensuring PP/FF a long life in bookstores, in classroom use and for course adoption at programs sympathetic to the daring and experimental. Peter Conners, one of the most noted US prose poets, here takes on a gigantic challenge, as he struggles to produce a solid critical mass of what he considers the exciting "flash fictions" and "prose poems" of today. Wearing the heroic flippers of the editor, Conners has waded through the dregs of this material and pulled out a whole variety of plums of different sorts. His biggest challenge, of course, is in re-defining "flash fictions" and "prose poems" so that the different, some would say diametrically opposed, genres seem to meet in a place where boundaries dissolve.

For example, Ed Taylor's cunning monologue, is it a prose poem or a flash fiction? I would answer, both. No wonder Conners has created a title (PP/FF) in which only a slash mark separates the two acronyms he's trying to shake up like a bottle of root beer in one hand, a bottle of Pepto-Bismol in the other. Now, shake! As Conners points out, "strict adherence to given definitions of form and genre (prefabricated marketing boxes) are debilitating to a writer's creativity and do a disservice to readers." Look at the way the DA VINCI Code became a publishing sensation. It isn't only that readers like an exciting mystery, but in Dan Brown's novel they felt they were transgressing genres and actually finding out something about Christ's real life too, thus creating a dual appeal that torques up the action both at the cash registers and within the reader's brains.

Though the question is are these prose poems or flash fiction, I generally found the contents of this book to be highly confusing and difficult to comprehend.
