Flash Fiction Stories with a Feminine Twist is a collection of short stories written by Theodore Jerome Cohen and Alyssa Devine, the author's pseudonym for some of the stories. Flash Fiction Stories with a Feminine Twist comprises both very short stories, less than a page long, and some longer tales. They center on women of all ages, from infancy to old age, and portray them and their behaviors by taking inspiration from photos found on the Internet. The picture is at the beginning of every story, so Flash Fiction Stories seems like a photo album in some regards. In this collection, Cohen (and Devine) offer us a variety of themes, people, and events that are usually paradoxical, often humorous, and always surprising.
What a superb book Flash Fiction Stories with a Feminine Twist is! I enjoyed reading it for the unpredictability of the stories and the accuracy with which they are written. Cohen (and Devine) perfectly demonstrate their love for the art of writing both in the choice of the subjects and in the way they pen their stories. While the shorter stories stun you with their wit and conciseness, the longer ones surprise you in the deep meaning they have. I particularly liked the last one at the very end of the book; it is the best farewell a reader can have from all these adventures. It is a pity I cannot linger on all of them and their features, but I can say each story is a gem worth reading. I recommend Flash Fiction Stories with a Feminine Twist to all readers who love short prose and appreciate its value.
