Winner of the Dzanc Short Story Collection Competition Is it true that Neanderthal women have natural charm? How do you cope with a spouse who’s a charismatic kleptomaniac? Does it matter if the souvenir you bring home from Africa is another human being? What can a wife do if all that remains of her husband is what he left in the bathroom that morning? Never mind waking up one morning as a giant insect. What about metamorphosing into your mother? David Galef’s My Date with Neanderthal Woman, the winner of Dzanc Books’ first Short Story Collection Competition, responds to these and other questions: thirty-three visions of lives that—let’s hope—are far from your own.

A dazzling new anthology of the very best very short fiction from around the world. What is a flash fiction called in other countries? In Latin America it is a micro, in Denmark kortprosa, in Bulgaria mikro razkaz. These short shorts, usually no more than 750 words, range from linear narratives to the more unusual: stories based on mathematical forms, a paragraph-length novel, a scientific report on volcanic fireflies that proliferate in nightclubs. Flash has always—and everywhere—been a form of experiment, of possibility. A new entry in the lauded Flash and Sudden Fiction anthologies, this collection includes 86 of the most beautiful, provocative, and moving narratives by authors from six continents, including best-selling writer Etgar Keret, Zimbabwean writer Petina Gappah, Korean screenwriter Kim Young-ha, Nobel Prize winner Czeslaw Milosz, and Argentinian “Queen of the Microstory” Ana María Shua, among many others. These brilliantly chosen stories challenge readers to widen their vision and celebrate both the local and the universal.
