From childhood to old age, the remarkable women of She Receives the Night bear the burden of the world’s darkness and carry it toward the light. Like their counterparts in the fiction of Joy Williams and Alice Munro, these characters are tormented but resilient, abused but unyielding, sharp-eyed and sharp-witted.
Robert Earle’s dazzling stories illuminate the decisive moment in a woman’s life when she realizes she must break through the shells and traps of relationships gone bad, customs too confining, governments too brutal, and grief too relentless.
