Art Is Fleeting
short fiction by Rachel Rodman
How short can a story be? Rachel Rodman's Art Is Fleeting explores this question with more than 150 pieces of punchy, clever, and, at times, heartbreaking micro and flash fiction. Some of these literary miniatures are funny, some fantastical, and some a bit dark. All of them offer meaning and emotion in a condensed and sharp-edged form, and their mark upon the reader will not soon be dislodged. Several well-known fictional characters make appearances, among them Dorothy and the Scarecrow, Cinderella, and Rapunzel. And some real-life characters show up as well: the Wright Brothers; Sylvia Plath; John Cage; and John, Paul, George, and Ringo. A stunning and unforgettable collection of short fiction.
