Advance Praise

“Like the varied and verdant landscape of the Pacific Northwest, the stories in The Night, and the Rain, and the River will make you gasp and grow your heart. Sweet cheating boyfriends, hopeful drunk drivers, angry little sisters, inept sincere fathers, even a lonely goose, all are portrayed with exuberant complexity in their quests for love.  These stories offer up bright light in our often overcast skies.”

– Natalie Serber, author of Shout Her Lovely Name

“I love this book like I love the ocean. The Night, and the Rain, and the River gets under your skin and travels your body from the first page. Each story brings you to the edge of your own heart, or life, or death, or gut grabbing laughter, and as the stories accumulate, you slowly realize you’ve been allowed into a world. These writers will mark you for life; remember their names. We are nothing without each other.”

– Lidia Yuknavitch, author of Dora: A Headcase
