Description:

Fiction. THEY COULD NO LONGER CONTAIN THEMSELVES contains—but just barely—five chapbooks of flash fiction, including the winner of the third annual Rose Metal Press short short chapbook contest, and four of the finalists from the fourth. Dropped toddlers, attempted drownings, juvenile promiscuity, road trips, and inappropriate therapy sessions compose the multi-voiced family portrait inDear Mother Monster, Dear Daughter Mistakeby Elizabeth J. Colen. Yoga stalkers, guns and gold, babies with iron stomachs, drunkards with t-shirt cannons, and warlocks are the stuff ofDo Not Touch Me Not Now Not Everby John Jodzio. Dominatrixes and fetishists, face paint and goo, fierce parental love and perverse longings cohabitate inEvan's House and the Other Boys Who Live Thereby Tim Jones-Yelvington. Leukemia, meteorites, Wal-Mart, bocce ball, Charlie Brown's clinical depression, the language of talking crows and of Che Guevara's omelets fill the eggs inHow Some People Like Their Eggsby Sean Lovelace. And smallstories about pretty girls who sit quietly and behave themselves (or not) populate the pages ofPaper and Tasselsby Mary Miller.
