It’s a difficult task writing 75 stories in 75 words, even coming up with that number of ideas is daunting let alone editing them to fit into this exacting framework yet Mallett skilfully seems to manage this with ease in 75 x 75 = Flash Fraction.
I’m sure they’re not to write but her flowing tales are effortless to read and you really can’t stop once you start. Some are complete stories whilst others are well observed snapshots on all stages of life and covering every level of emotion.
Thoroughly enjoyable and ideal reading when you don’t have the time or the concentration level for tackling a novel. I’d recommend to all.
