A review in 420 characters

420 Characters
by Lou Beach

These stories began as Facebook status updates, and each was limited to 420 characters—barely a paragraph.  So I began reading, and I was like, “What’s the point?”  Sure these brief stories were well-written, but there was no big picture.  Still, I kept reading, and discovered nurses named Ann O’Dyne, satires of Beatrix Potter, and openings like, “His shoot failed to open.”  They grew on me!
