Three New Stories - Claire Polders
As I’m working hard on two new novels, one for younger readers and one for adults, I sometimes gratify myself by writing flash fiction. It’s such a joy and a great practice and a fabulous genre all by itself. I’m particularly proud of these three pieces recently published in Atticus Review. Whether it’s 1940 or now, whether you’re on holiday or going on a stroll with your husband who is slowly losing his mind, we all need to make moral choices. Do we acknowledge or ignore our conscience? Inspired by real-life stories from my grandmother and friends, please read: “Dutch Neighbors,” “Battle of Brushes,” and “Lost and Found.” update: The story “Lost and Found” has been nominated for Best Microfiction 2018!
