I have a flash in this, and I think it may break the Trades Description Act as it's not funny. Don't let that put you off for this is a fantastic collection, and includes the great and the good of flashers like Lydia Davis, Bernard MacLaverty, Roddy Doyle (as another contributor Jonathan Pinnock notes: a Man Booker Shortlistee, a Man Booker Prizewinner and a Man Booker International Prizewinner). There's also Steve Almond, Mark Budman, Meg Pokrass, David Gaffney, Vanessa Gebbie, Tania Hershman, Meg Tuite, well the list is in the 'about' bit above: take a look.

So as well as being for a good cause anyone interested in flash fiction should buy this straight away. You can do so here: https://storefront.chester.ac.uk/inde...
