I’m happy to announce the publication of my new book, Boys Don’t Understand Lipstick: Very Short Stories. It was a lot of fun to write and I hope you have as much fun reading it.
Charlie Close’s new collection of very short stories is a sexy, sassy, silly romp through the worlds of love and work, childhood and family, wanting, losing, and getting.
It’s also a meditation on the human condition, explored through an artistic form akin to haiku that prizes brevity and mystery.
Yeah! But mostly it’s got boys and girls and men and women chasing each other around – bashing and crashing, honking and wheezing, crying and singing as they go.
The stories burst in your brain as they fly by. Read them quickly one by one…or slow down and look closely. Spend a little time with stories that can catch hold of something in your own life.
Available now on Amazon.
