Tomlinson Saying the Ball Was Tipped by Kyle Minor elimae
Wigleaf Top 50 Selection
I love the use of repetition in Kyle Minor's (very) little flash. The haunt of an excuse which carries through each chapter of the narrative. I don't have a clear idea of why a "tipped" ball would make any difference. I don't know much about football.
But, I do know about pleading one's case and that plea gaining no traction as one's case goes down the tubes.
I know that Minor is known for writing longer fiction and this is the first thing of his I've ever read. I regretfully missed his reading at Powell's last winter. But, I'm pleased that he seems to be adept in the Flash format.
Great read and a worthy addition to any collection.
