Minnion displays remarkable storytelling skills that keep the reader going from page to page; he creates interesting characters and creative situations that keep the reader engaged. Readers will revel in this remarkable collection from a master of the form and wonder how they’d ever overlooked her in the first place. “In A Manual for Cleaning Women we witness the emergence of an important American writer, one who was mostly overlooked in her time.

These short shorts, usually no more than 750 words, range from linear narratives to the more unusual: stories based on mathematical forms, a paragraph-length novel, a scientific report on volcanic fireflies that proliferate in nightclubs.
