A Dozen of Flash Fiction from “A Treat of 100 Short Stories”

Sa punto de bista ng isang mambabasa, maraming entry sa “A Treat of 100 Short Stories” ang nakakadismaya. Gayunpaman, hindi ko na titimbangin kung kahinaan ito ng mga batang manunulat o ng patnugot na si Gerardo Z. Torres. Ako lang naman ito.

Sa halip, mas bibigyan ko ng pansin ang 12 kwento na nagpagana sa aking isip at mga pandama. Sabi nga sa introduksyon ng aklat, “here’s [a dozen of] flash-fiction pieces in English and Filipino — a treat for those who cannot seem to get enough fiction”.
