Product description


"The Hundred Dollar Tip" [included in It Won't Stay Light Forever] has rigourous simplicity of action, plot and language that reflects the diligence Weyhing gained while earning a master of fine arts degree in writing. Fortunately, even with some foreshadowing, the reader is not ready for what happens to the old man and how the cab driver earns his $100 tip. -- Providence Journal, October 28, 1998.

Condolences, published in It Won't Stay Light Forever, was awarded Special Mention in The Pushcart Prize XVIII

He received his MFA in writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Many of his published short stories and several new ones are contained in this volume. He is also the author of a novel, Speaking from the Heart. Until his death in 2016, he lived in Rhode Island with his wife Mary. They were the parents of three sons.
