    Grant Faulkner is a conjurer He waves his hands over a page, a few dozen words fall, and from them whole lives echo, small and tinny but going on for hours.You ask most folks in the know what distinguishes a prose poem from flash fiction especially microfiction like these tiny 100 word stories and they ll tell you, not much And truth be told, some of these pieces in Fissures do feel a bitlike poetry, or old fashioned sketches, or vignettes, or disembodied scenes But that doesn t d Grant Faulkner is a conjurer He waves his hands over a page, a few dozen words fall, and from them whole lives echo, small and tinny but going on for hours.You ask most folks in the know what distinguishes a prose poem from flash fiction especially microfiction like these tiny 100 word stories and they ll tell you, not much And truth be told, some of these pieces in Fissures do feel a bitlike poetry, or old fashioned sketches, or vignettes, or disembodied scenes But that doesn t deprive any of them of their immense power, and even in such impressionistic brevity, most of these stories are true stories, whole narratives tossed on the page with the minimum strokes of a pen, like some Japanese painting It helps that so many of the stories are connected I look forward to rereading this whole book and piecing together the longer narrative of Gerard and Celeste, or of Zabeth And of course there is the central eight story cycle of Alexander, the filmmaker But really, there is equal magic in the isolated, momentary lives of Stockton and Sophie postcoital on a Victorian couch, of Tom and his father in the silver LTD, of Margery and George drinking martinis in jelly jars, of all the nameless I narrators and you subjects and hes and shes of these intimate little worlds It s quite a feat, this book, and it serves not only as a beautiful artifact of the microfiction form but also as a kind of textbook If ever you wanted to know how to write a full story in a mere 100 words, here are your instructions take up Grant Faulkner, read, and read again

    Each one of these 100 word stories is like looking through a keyhole You get a tantalizing glimpse of what s happening, but you have to imagine the rest.
