New anthology celebrates best of the short short form

A new book published by Canterbury University Press (CUP), Bonsai: Best small stories from Aotearoa New Zealand, showcases the best new and previously published work from a range of emerging and established authors such as Bill Manhire, Selina Tusitala Marsh and Michelle Leggott.

A comprehensive selection of short short stories, including prose, haibun and flash fiction, the anthology comprises 200 stories of no more than 300 words from 165 writers. It is edited by Michelle Elvy, Frankie McMillan and James Norcliffe.

In the short short form, every word counts and the reader will find the carefully chiselled works in Bonsai provocative, tender and endlessly surprising.

“Short short stories require writers to have the agility of a tightrope walker, moving as they do from one slightly anxious moment to the next. For the onlookers, they offer a moment of suspense, delight and wonder,” Frankie McMillan says.
