The Foolish Art Lover by Jim Harrington

He carries the Eiffel Tower in his pocket, the steeple a pointed reminder of his folly. They met over coffee on the Rue Bonaparte, a meeting between art connoisseur and museum curator. His lasting image is of her wiping mascara from her cheek, the result of him remembering his wife.




Jim Harrington discovered flash fiction in 2007, and he’s read, written, studied, and agonized over the form since. Besides 50 to 1, his stories have appeared in A Twist of Noir, Every Day Fiction, Camroc Press Review, Weirdyear, Flashshot and others. Jim's Six Questions For blog provides editors and publishers a place to “tell it like it is.”

Ah the paths that spring up, too late, alas. Perfect story for Spring -- or Autumn.
