Sixty stories.

Dive in.

Tahoe Blues.

 

 


Bona Fide Books has collected sixty short works of flash fiction and true tales, polished like glacial granite to reveal the depths of the lake we love. Each piece is no more than five-hundred words—like the pea-sized gold nugget sifted out of the Upper Truckee, tiny but priceless. Short enough to be read on the lift or in line for a latte, Tahoe Blues offers instant clarity into the Lake of the Sky.
