55 Words

55 WORD FICTION: the art of creating a complete short story in exactly 55 words. Anushree Nande’s collection, published as part of LA-based Underground Voices is a collection of 46 stories compiled into an entertaining and fast read.

Ms Nande’s beautifully composed vignettes creep into your imagination like seeds, where they blossom into a rich forest of full-blown stories. She captures moments, snatches of memories, and turns them over gently with her delicate prose; she runs her fingers over them, tracing the edges of pain, grief and loss; then she twists them in the light, and they shimmer and sparkle with joy and delight. (via a 5 star Amazon review by Batmandela)
