PRAISE FOR TALKING IN THE DARK

The excitement of reading Laura Glen Louis' debut story collection . . . derives not only from its prose but also from the possibilities she sees in her characters.--The Washington Post Book World
The individuals in Laura Glen Louis's [collection] are characters for whom the experience of love demands the ultimate migration-from safety to omni-present danger. . . . Superb and wise stories.--The New York Times Book Review
Louis' sophisticated and fluid use of a shifting point-of-view works to underscore the complexity of what might at first appear to be a simple tale.--San Francisco Chronicle
