If anything's going to save the characters in Amelia Gray's debut from their troubled romances, their social improprieties, or their hands turning into claws, it's a John Mayer concert tee. In AM/PM, Gray's flash-fiction collection, impish humor is on full display. Tour through the lives of 23 characters across 120 stories full of lizard tails, Schrödinger boxes and volcano love. Follow June, who wakes up one morning covered in seeds; Leonard, who falls in love with a chaise lounge; and Andrew, who talks to his house in times of crisis. An intermittent love story as seen through a darkly comic lens, Gray mixes poetry and prose, humor and hubris to create a truly original piece of fiction.

Amelia Gray is the author of four books: AM/PM (2009, featherproof), Museum of the Weird (Ronald Sukenick/American Book Review Innovative Fiction Prize), THREATS (Finalist, PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction), and her most recent collection, Gutshot (2015, FSG Originals). She lives in Los Angeles.

Praise for AM/PM

The stories in AM/PM have ruined me as a reader of shorts. I will no longer be satisfied by the merely beautiful, the singularly clever, or the one big thought purely rendered. I want all those things in a two hundred word package. I want to be highly amused and deeply sad at the exact same time. Amelia Gray packs more power in a paragraph than I thought possible.
— Stacey Swann, editor of American Short Fiction
