Product description


"Todd Robert Petersen represents a new breed of Mormon writer, creatively and sympathetically examining his faith through a series of probing, appealingly written short stories. His Mormon magic realism, his fully-rounded characters, and his appealing protagonists torn between church beliefs and humane actions make this collection of stories an especially attractive work." --Richard Etulain, author of Reimagining the Modern American West: A Century of Fiction, History, and Art

"It has become increasingly clear to me that no assessment of the American West that fails to take Mormon culture into serious account can be considered entirely complete. LONG AFTER DARK is as revealing a glimpse into this community as we could wish for. With sentences painstaking and diligent, Todd Robert Petersen portrays characters struggling for and against their respective communities. He tells stories of a West that few non-Mormons have heard--but the stories are, nevertheless, our own." --Aaron Gwyn, author of Dog on the Cross

"The writing is openly accessible, seldom troubling . . . and provocative in a way that the majority of Mormons will accept rather than find threatening. The stories are realistic . . . shying away from postmodernism and turning instead to moral questions. Yet there is also something new here: one gets the sense that the old answers won't quite satisfy anymore." --Brian Evenson, author, from the foreword
