"How beautifully the pieces of this book fit together, and how radiantly original it is." –Joan Silber, author of Ideas of Heaven.
Desire turns deadly in this mesmerizing tale from a master stylist - a cinematic debut from the author of two acclaimed collections of short stories.
The setting is Bakersfield, California, in the late 1950s. A dusty, quiet town, too far from Los Angeles to share that city's energy, yet close enough to Hollywood to fill its citizens with the kinds of dreams they discover in the darkness of the movie theater. What You See In The Dark is a penetrating look at people searching for meaning and authenticity in lives played out under watchful eyes. This thoroughly original work of noir fiction is intense and fascinating in its juxtapositions of tenderness and menace, violence and regret and its atmospheric recreation of a place on the brink of change.
