“When words are scarce they are seldom spent in vain” —Shakespeare

Nothing Is Ever One Thing is a Master Class in flash fiction. These elegant stories shine a slanted light on the high wire act of human existence with a unique blend of pathos and grit. Robert Scotellaro’s microfictions are breathtaking little epiphanies.”

New Micro

“Reading these wonderful tiny fictions is like stealing food from the refrigerator before, or after, dinner. A sublime luxury.”

Frederick Barthelme, New World Writing

“These micro fictions violate the laws of geophysics by compressing whole lives / whole worlds / whole heartbreaks into something like diamonds: bright, riven, reflective, edged, wonderful, and hard enough to cut through glass.”

—Pam Houston, author of Contents May Have Shifted

New Micro’s quick, bright stories are, like our lives, as brief as lightning in the blinding dark. They offer us essential truth without the inessential facts.”

—John Dufresne, author of Flash! Writing the Very Short Story

“You can’t be complacent when you read Robert Scotellaro’s stories. Each line, each word, demands attention. He’s a master of the miniature tale, wielding concision like a sculptor’s knife. He uncovers those strange moments of life that haunt, bewilder, and reveal with a poetry that is daring. These 100-word stories are both barbed and beautiful.”

– Grant Faulkner 

Author of Fissures and co-founder and editor of 100 Word Story

“Scotellaro’s flash stories, sentence by sentence, ride disjunction to dazzling heights of hilarity, hard won wisdom, and the sweetest grief. He is the sublime story teller of tiny lives colliding with big moments.”
