A Collection of Short Stories

by Delia Zhong

This unforgettable, sometimes unsettling, but always riveting collection is comprised of stories of various lengths that will haunt the reader. Imaginative short pieces on mundane creatures and objects invite contemplation. Longer works focus on desperately unhappy wives and seemingly quiet, innocuous neighbors who slowly spiral into terrible acts of vengeance. Whether you have five minutes or thirty, these stories are crafted to entertain, impress, and linger.
Imaginative worlds come alive in the single paragraphs and short stories that comprise this original collection. "Thought Threads" are a creative take on everyday subjects. Readers are drawn into a student's final, emotionally conflicted moments of high school; the restless interactions of a puppy; and a mysterious, unknowable fox. "Longer than Thought Threads but shorter than the short stories" is a creative piece told from the narrative perspective of a reflective, somewhat clingy water bottle. In "Apologies," the author introduces a neurotic, obsessive narrator; this piece is the perfect introduction to her two short stories. One of these stories is about a desperate housewife and the other is about a seemingly benign neighbor who commits a terrible act. Both ripple with pathos and darkness.
