This, in my opinion, is a fantastic representation of what appears to be an entirely new wave in writing; "flash fiction". Short and to the point, the works in this book represent a whole new direction for writing in the twenty-first century. Each piece is short enough to read in a few minutes, and many will have you re-reading them. The "academic" presentation of the book allows for an almost infinite amunt of ways this volume can also be used by teachers. For the modern English teacher, I feel that it is one of the most valuable teaching tools available at this point in time, since it is on the leading edge of a whole new approach to both the writing craft itself, and those who teach the fundamentals of writing.
This is a book that can be thoroughly enjoyed as everyday reading or as a teaching tool. I highly recommend it to anybody who is interested in writing, or simply reading for the pure enjoyment; it is a rare gem, one I'm sure avid readers would not regret acquiring.
