Joseph Young reviews Mary Miller’s Broken:

“Broken,” then, is a shallow pool, all surfaces and light. It hasn’t the deep, probing psychology or humanistic revelation of emotion that have become de rigeur for the modern short story. Through her use of surface values–humor, quirkiness, even a bit of cruelty–Miller liberates her flash from these requirements. Meaning has been cut free from fiction.
