The Art of the Short Short Story
A continuation of the style Mathisen is known for, Glimpse vol. 2 is the second collection of forty imagined scenes from forty imagined lives. Each story stands alone and varies in mood to engage every emotion as you read the book. You will find yourself smiling through tears reading one story then quickly on edge with nervous excitement reading the next.
Immediately dropping you into the life of the protagonist, Mathisen gives you an instant emotional connection to them. In one or two pages the scene unfolds and completes each “glimpse”; many times with a surprising twist at the end. Just like life.
