His work is like a delectable dessert: you can have a small piece, in which case you have more for later, or you can indulge yourself. Sal serves up some thin slices, and at other times heavy platters of life served hot and cold: from tales of a traumatized soldier and a gunfighter whose slinging includes sage advice, to a woman for whom writer's block has severe consequences and a truly vicious mugger.
Though the stories are brief, they have their twists, and he gives us conditions and characters we can all relate to.
This book makes for the perfect road trip companion.

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.
