Book jacket
Strange is the night


Over cocktails an executive describes to a friend the disturbing history of a strangely potent guardian angel. A young mom tries to perfect and prolong her daughter's childhood with obsessive parenting. A critic's petty denouncement of an ingEnue's performance leads to a theatrical night of reckoning. A cult member makes nice for a parole board hearing years after committing an infamous crime. A multiple Shirley Jackson Award nominee, S.P. Miskowski serves up an uncompromising collection of thirteen modern tales of desire and self-destruction. Strange is the Night offers further proof that Miskowski is--as Black Static book reviewer Peter Tennant notes--"one of the most interesting and original writers to emerge in recent years."
