About the Book
Every piece here was written in one hundred words including its title. It started as an accidental exercise, a way to syphon some insanity out of my head, but I got hooked on the formula. They became like little puzzles, pieces made of pieces of a whole. The stories themselves are simple vignettes from a handful of lives, small details in a larger sea. Connections exist between them all, they can be found or discarded as you please, but the links aren’t as imperative as the instances depicted, and won’t please any sensible chronology. Otherwise, just enjoy the moments.
