by Iris N. Schwartz
Poets Wear Prada: 2019
ISBN-13: 978-1-946116-01-7
Paperback: 72 pages
List Price: $12.00

Iris N. Schwartz uses her razor-sharp prose to write about what no one wants to talk about. Here are 15 unforgettable, fiercely honest, sometimes darkly comic, more often unnerving stories about the human struggle to conceal, circumvent, and transcend shame. Successively Iris's pen goes in and twists -- till you say uncle and confess your shames. Cathartic!

Charles Rammelkamp calls these stories "succinct and dreamlike, hypnotic and enchanting" and says they have "a sort of New York Jewish sensibility and magic that make one think of Bernard Malamud."  Read his complete review in North of Oxford.

Niles Reddick says: "Iris N. Schwartz keeps the reader’s attention, keeps the reader turning pages, and at the end, keeps the reader wanting more of her stories. . . . For the flash fiction connoisseur, Shame is a must read." Read his complete review in Tuck Magazine.
