Wednesday, July 7, 2010 - Sudden Fiction Latino

Wednesday at 2:30 PM on KPFK. Today a special performance edition of the show, with an opportunity to celebrate a wonderful new anthology with its editor, a man who’s blazed a particular trail as regards a singular genre. Robert Shapard has been part of a team of editors who’ve made the short-short story, or sudden fiction, their own. With James Thomas and now co-editor Ray Gonzalez, he’s responsible for Flash Fiction Forward, New Sudden Fiction, Sudden Fiction (Continued), Sudden Fiction International and, now, Sudden Fiction Latino: Short-Short Stories from the United States and Latin America. With me in the studio and on the telephone are three contributors to the new anthology reading their short-short stories in their entirety. Ain't community-sponsored non-commercial radio great? Shapard himself won a national chapbook competition with a collection of seven short-short stories, called Motel and Other Stories. Reading their work are novelist and nonfiction author Luis Alberto Urrea (The Hummingbird’s Daughter and The Devil’s Highway) and short story writers Andrea Saenz and Lisa Alvarez. Listen live on the radio, or online. Archived at the station site, and downloadable free for 90 days.
