SmokeLong Toasts: Avital Gad-Cykman’s Flash Collection

Congratulations to former SLQ contributor Avital Gad-Cykman, whose collection Life In, Life Out, featuring the story “Fire. Water.” from SmokeLong Quarterly Issue 6, has been published by Matter Press for Compressed Creative Arts.

Life-In-Life-OutFrom the publisher: “This spirited collection of flash fiction deals with war and resistance, parenthood and childhood, passion and longing. There’s the slant of exile in it, as it reflects the author’s situation: an Israeli, living in Brazil and writing in English. These thirty-four stories have been published in places like W.W. Norton’s Flash International Anthology, Los Angeles Review, Salon, and Prism International. Avital’s work has also appeared in Glimmer Train, McSweeney’s Quarterly, and Michigan Quarterly Review.”
