The Art of Brevity gathers fresh ideas about the theory and writing of short fiction from around the globe to produce an international, inclusive exploration of the steadily growing field of short story studies. Though Anglo-American scholars have served as the primary developers of contemporary short story theory since the field's inception in the 1960s, this volume adds the contributions of scholars living in other parts of the world. Such Anglo-American pioneers as Mary Rohrberger, Charles May, Susan Lohafer, and John Gerlach join with short fiction scholars at universities in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Canada to build academic bridges and expand the field, geographically as well as conceptually. Contributors to the volume weave together themes of time, space, compression, mystery, reader response, and narrative closure. They discuss writers as varied as Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Sarah Orne Jewett, James Joyce, Franz Kafka, Ernest Hemingway, Mavis Gallant, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Margaret Atwood, Alice Munro, and Robert Olen Butler. the nineteenth-century queer short story, and contemporary Danish short shorts.

A terrific comic now becomes a terrific book." -Larry King Did you know that da Vinci sketched the prototype for the iPod? Or that before settling on cookies, Chinese restaurants experimented with putting fortunes in broccoli? Learn more about life in Brevity. Authors Guy Endore-Kaiser and Rodd Perry combine their satirical tendencies with a minimalist illustration style to create Brevity, a single-panel comic that Shakespeare himself declares "the soul of wit." This Brevity treasury features cartoons from the Brevity and Brevity 2 book collections. No sporks, spheres, penguins, or superheroes were injured in the creation of this treasury. Brevity dares to ponder such thoughtful perplexities as the difference in fulfillment between hot-air and cold-air balloon rides, the inherent dilemmas involved in eating Chinese alphabet soup, and the pros and cons of playing the violin or the fiddle.

In Brevity, David Galef provides a guide to writing flash fiction, from tips on technique to samples by canonical and contemporary authors to provocative prompts that inspire powerful stories in a little space. Galef traces the genre back to its varied origins, from the short-short to nanofiction, with examples that include vignettes, prose poems, character sketches, fables, lists, twist stories, surrealism, and metafiction. The authors range from the famous, such as Colette and Borges, to today's voices, like Roxane Gay and Bruce Holland Rogers. A writer and longtime creative writing teacher, Galef also shows how flash fiction skills translate to other types of writing. Brevity is an indispensable resource for anyone working in this increasingly popular form. For more information, see davidgalef.com/brevity.

A welcome breath of fresh air. Really funny stuff. A terrific comic now becomes a terrific book." Authors Guy Endore-Kaiser and Rodd Perry have crashed the party, and the world of cartooning will never be the same. In fact, they are arguably the freshest, most original and clever of all cartoonists out there. Their comic strip Brevity features a smorgasbord of nerds, animals, and sporks in unusual yet relatable situations. For example: * The five-second food-dropping rule does not apply to sewer workers. * The Hypnotato dares you to look into his eyes. * The combover eagle (you have to see it to believe it.) * The angry pin-the-tail-on-the-donkeys paying a nighttime visit to the birthday boy to settle a score. Brevity has been described as "the soul of wit." Indeed, this wily wit fused with minimalist illustration has launched its popularity into the stratosphere. Brevity will be at the top of every cartoon lover's wish list.
