Something is going on out there. Almost simultaneously, many of our finest writers are experimenting with a new nonfiction form: brief pieces that are literary and personal rather than informational, complete in themselves, and short--very short. Although the form has not had a name until now, the writers who are attracted to it include the known--Tim O'Brien, Barry Lopez, Terry Tempest Williams, Michael Ondaatje--as well as just-discovered voices in the field of creative nonfiction, a genre that is transforming the essay.

Delights and surprises await the reader in this rich gathering of Shorts. From Diane Ackerman's fascination with hummingbirds, to Andrei Codrescu's idiosyncratic view of nostalgia, to Albert Goldbarth's free-wheeling riff on the universe, each Short--ranging from several paragraphs to 2,000 words--becomes a sharply focused lens on an outer world or an inner sensibility.

In Short, reflecting almost every way in which nonfiction can be written, is for all readers (and writers) who thrive on imaginative play and aesthetic satisfaction. Pick up this book; open it up. See if you can resist it.

From Jack Kerouac and the Whiz Kids

Then Falcon tells Dulouz he shouldn't "'trust anybody else in this joint, I'm Vincent Malatesta and I may be an assassin on pay but I'm honest, my father was an honest cabinetmaker.'" If you have any problems, Falcon continues, "'come to me and tell me anything's on your mind anytime. And don't be afraid of me because of my black patch and my reputation.'"

Jack's Glee

Put simply, Kilmer was able to inhabit Morrison. Think back to what he writes early in his memoir about the many characters he portrayed in his movies: "I was and was not the character I played. The character went through me, and therefore was me, even as I went through the character and became him. Pieces of me and pieces of him merged."
