You Are Everything: 10 Starter Stories by Cedric Brown
You Are Everything is a collection of ten stories, exactly 500 words each, that celebrate everyday expressions of Black life—some funny, some serious, some serene, all of them real and layered.
"None are meant to be complete tales, just a jumping off point for more imagining," writes the author. "That's the power of storytelling, however brief."
Readers will enjoy these power packed flash fiction pieces.
