The Exit Coach
Megan Staffel (Author)
DescriptionHow do we find the courage to change? In The Exit Coach, a collection of six stories and a novella, the characters arrive at an impasse that requires them to step out of the wreckage of their habituated lives. It is the entrance of an unexpected voice--a visitor from France, a retired talent scout, an invisible friend, a midnight phone call, or even a wild animal--that disrupts their patterns of behavior and illuminates the possibilities they've been blind to, pointing the way to an exit they've dreamt of, but lacked the courage to enter.

"Engaging and memorable. . . . Staffel's prose is graceful--each sentence flows nimbly into the next with poetic but concise exposition. The book's greatest strength is its dialogue. The voices Staffel employs are distinct and authentic, and she gives her characters room to delve into compelling discussions with interesting revelations that help push the narratives forward."-- "Publishers Weekly"
