Abstract:

"Following the success of the Flash Fiction and Sudden Fiction series, editors Robert Shapard and James Thomas join with Ray Gonzalez in offering some of the best new and recent short-short stories by U.S. Latino and Latin American writers. Featuring an introduction by the much-lauded Argentine writer Luisa Valenzuela, Sudden Fiction Latino celebrates work from stars like Junot Dfaz, Sandra Cisneros, and Roberto Bolofio: masters like Gabriel Garda Marquez, Isabel Allende, and Jorge Luis Borges; and rising talents like Andrea Saenz, Daniel Alarcon, and Alicita Rodriguez. From as little as half a page long to a few pages, these stories are moving, challenging, humorous, artful, sometimes political, and altogether spectacular - and reveal significant distinctions and common ground between U.S. Latino and Latin American literature"--Jacket.
