Synopsis

Twisted: Tales to Rot Your Brain Vol. 1 collects 28 flash fiction stories in a book that targets anyone who giggles when a tale takes a surprising turn, from middle grade readers through their adult counterparts. The stories in the collection unfold using traditional text and illustrations and even a graphic novel. And all of the stories lean toward the edge of the twisted: told from unexpected perspectives; not about what you thought they were; head off in a direction you weren't counting on. And here's hoping you never see it coming. Blindsided. Time to giggle.

Monsters and Critics

and these moments are often missed in reviews of the book which claim LeDuff uses the weirdos he encounters to somehow psychoanalyze himself, or that LeDuff- a quintessential East Coast Liberal, is engaging in the very sort of stereotyping he would deride in others’ writing.
