New Flash Published and the Invention of “Literary Slapstick”

I was delighted to have this piece published by Bureau of Complaint last month. A lot of my favourite stories have been published this year and there is another one coming up. But for the moment, please head over to this site and check out A story breakdown for a completely fictional story called, “Why is everything so fucking difficult?”

It’s my first story with a swearword in the title! And it heralds a new style that I am calling “literary slapstick”. This may all sound pretty lowbrow but I think the rather meta framing device saves it from that.

Or does it? Maybe not. Anyway…
