Vantage Points: Flash Fictions
"I’ve done nothing I’ve been seeing. Nothing I’ve been seeing I’ve done. I’ve been seeing nothing I’ve done..."
What does it mean to be human in the eyes of others?
From acclaimed writer Nathan Nicolau comes Vantage Points, a flash-fiction collection about perception. Each story focuses on how a character sees the world, sees others, or how they see themselves. The stories in this collection explore different aspects of the human condition—the positives, the negatives, and even the ugly—but reframes them through the eyes of unique characters, all in 1,000 words or less.
Dive into the mind of a man who loves fast food more than his children or a woman who sees her relationship in a painting. Hear the sardonic ramblings of a dead man or see the cold procedure of a gun owner. We all have a story to tell, but it depends on what our viewpoint is.
This is writing that streams in a literary sense...Fun and artistic and interesting. Moves from poetical to more strict pose leading to narrative. A nice blend of styles and genres that makes for an interesting work!"
"I found this highly enjoyable, and the main reason was is that each story makes you think...Each of these stories is well-written, and the author is able transport you into the minds and worlds of each of these characters. The result is a thought-provoking, poignant read that will make you look at the world in a different way."
