A collection of flash fiction, which are stories shorter (and sometimes much shorter) than a page, this book contains work that is alternately surreal, piercing, dreamlike, and erotic. With adult versions of children’s tales, vignettes that play with history, science fiction, and much more, all of the stories are infused with humor, wordplay, and surprises.


Ana María Shua (1951-) has published over a hundred books in numerous genres: novels, short stories, poetry, drama, children’s fiction, books of humor and Jewish folklore, anthologies, film scripts, journalistic articles, and essays. Her writing has been translated into many languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Korean, Japanese, Bulgarian, and Serbian, and her stories appear in anthologies throughout the world. She has received numerous national and international awards, including a Guggenheim fellowship, and is one of Argentina’s premier living writers.

Steven J. Stewart (1973-) has been awarded two Literature Fellowships for Translation by the National Endowment for the Arts (2005 and 2015). His book of translations of Spanish poet Rafael Pérez Estrada, Devoured by the Moon (Hanging Loose Press, 2004), was a finalist for the 2005 PEN-USA translation award. He has published two previous books of Ana María Shua´s short fiction: Microfictions (University of Nebraska Press, 2009) and Without a Net (Hanging Loose Press, 2012). He has also published a book containing the translated horror microfictions of Peruvian writer Fernando Iwasaki (Blood Bound Books, 2014).
