Focused flash fiction: “Flash fiction is a unique form – needing to be super-tight and focused in order to work. In Days Are Beautiful, author Andrea C. Neil really pulls this off, showing herself to be very skilled in what is a very demanding form of art. The stories in Days Are Beautiful are clever, fun, sometimes light-hearted and often weighty with thoughts on how we inhabit our daily lives. Much of what happens in the everyday subject matter is very relatable, tackling the little things in life (and sometimes the big) that we all find ourselves facing, especially in light of a pandemic. I definitely recommend this book, and I’m looking forward to the next one!” — Goodreads Review
