Written by Mary Hamilton and selected by contest judge Dinty W. Moore, WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE is a collection of 13 flash fictions in which worlds are made, torn apart, drowned. The stories go small: a girl ties a ribbon on a present. The stories go big: a war is raged against the evening sky. The characters in these short short fictions find themselves in less-than-desirable circumstances. They know their plights. They acknowledge their situations. They give in. They overcome. They daydream a world where everything will be all right.

“The concise stories in this dynamic collection are bursting with moments of stark urgency and unexpected humor, with imagery that moves seamlessly from the bizarre to the oddly familiar, and situations that shift from the ludicrous to the undeniably sad,” writes Moore in his introduction to the book.

WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE features two-color letterpressed covers, printed by hand on a Vandercook press at The Museum of Printing in North Andover, Massachusetts. The chapbook has been produced in a limited run of just 300 copies, so be sure to get yours now! here: http://www.rosemetalpress.com/Catalog/whatweR.html
