Product description


"She Receives the Night masterfully exposes the yielding cracks and deep crevices of humanity in all their grit and darkness--and, with equal precision and splurges of hope, bathes them in light." ELIZABETH DAY, AUTHOR OF LIVING WITH GUSTO


"The depth and glow in Robert Earle's writing comes from living in the world, and fearlessly seeing beyond its surfaces. The elegant prose, complex characters, and plots that carry you off like falling in love, make his work a rewarding pleasure to read." GINGER MAYERSON, AUTHOR OF DR HACKENBUSH GETS A JOB


"Stories full of the pain of life shot with hope." MARTIN CHIPPEFIELD, PUBLISHER, 34THPARALLEL


"Earle has an eerie way of drawing the reader deeply into the inner worlds of the women he writes about, transmuting lived experiences into poignant tales that remind us that though the night is long, dawn eventually breaks, and we are all the stronger for it. Overall a stirring and insightful collection." MEHREEN FATIMA ASHFAQ, FICTION EDITOR, THE MISSING SLATE


"Robert Earle's brilliant new book, She Receives the Night, is a dazzling collection of short stories that you'll find difficult to put down. Earle's precise, confident voice guides us from the nightmares of the dispossessed along the rocky paths and vast range of human experience to fully realized acceptance of the human condition. These rewarding and compelling stories present vivid characters in sometimes exotic settings that will stay with you because they are true and profoundly human. In the closing story, the narrator reminds us of the journey we've taken, thanks to Earle's mastery of the written word and keen eye for 'Unimportant but intimate things, tender things, frightening things, all shared in a kind of rattle of words between dips in the suspect waters of the Atlantic full of seaweed and who knew what else.' I strongly encourage you to read and enjoy these memorable stories." GEORGE KOVACH, EDITOR, CONSEQUENCE MAGAZINE


"I couldn't help but think, as I read Robert Earle's sterling and cosmopolitan collection She Receives the Night, of that experimental writer Henry James. Earle is a master de-laminator of that stratified Jamesian character depth, excavating earned and earnest transparent, but amplified epiphanic stares (boketto on steroids) into the slipping and stuttering machinery of night. 'Experimental' in that he wrangles, like Henry, the new dynamic birthed from the Hieros Gamos of unconscious inner impulse and viral traumatic software, playing out the many permutations that are still percolating of secrets kept and revealed. Robert Earle--empathetic Brahmin of voices, gestures, and telling looks--out-looks James, out-Jameses James, in this lavish laboratory of sublime emotion and rare earth reality." MICHAEL MARTONE, AUTHOR OF MICHAEL MARTONE AND WINESBURG, INDIANA
