Flash fiction isn't everyone's cup of tea. It can't even be compared to short stories, because it can be far more complex and layered, despite the wham bam thank you mam shortness of the pieces.Nash likes to play with the complexity of words, whilst letting the reader have a quick painful peek at pent up emotions and subconscious fears.Without going over each one individually I think there was an interesting almost obsessive link with parent, child, abuse and abandonment. Keeping in mind, that what makes flash fiction so different is how each reader relates or takes something individual from the read. Almost like the subjective experience of art. Flash fiction is the performance art of the scribe.I received a free copy of this book for my review.
