This morning comes with coffee, a banana, a little NPR… and a wonderful review of Box Cutters, over at The Small Press Book Review, by Alex DeBonis.
The words undo me.
The stories in Box Cutters, Samuel Snoek-Brown’s flash fiction collection, operate on the principle that what’s included suggests what’s left out, with certain pieces resonating so profoundly that you can’t catch your breath.
In similar ways, these stories’ characters move beyond the expected, beyond easy diagnoses of contemporary ennui brought on by feeling powerless.
There’s more in the details, in DeBonis’s beautiful close readings of the stories, and the whole review is so generous and thorough I’m floored.
