Stories for Nighttime And Some For The Day by Ben Loory
The stories are short, often just a page or two. The words are also short and the stories seem deceptively simple at first. Then at the end there is a twist that sets a hook in the reader's mind, insuring that they will return to the story again and again trying to figure out exactly where they were fooled.
This book is recommended for readers who enjoy short stories. The stories are reminiscent of O'Henry in the twist at the end, but are not as complex as his. These are simple tales, simple enough that they can easily creep into the mind and take up residence.
