The Middle of the Night
Daniel Stolar

3 a.m. – The best books? Those you can’t put down. The best stories? Those that stay with you. The best writers? Those who get inside your head, illustrating your past, present and even your future. Each story in this moving collection possesses a bruised tenderness. Each features characters and situations that ring with the fullness (in big and small ways, in sad and funny ways) of real life. “In a real dark night of the soul,” F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, “it is always three o’clock in the morning, day after day.” Stolar illuminates the dark night – and the world around us – with an aching longing for the brightness of dawn.
