Praise for The Man Who Screams At Nightfall…and other stories:
“A powerful, gritty, and exquisitely written anthology —not to be missed.”
J. Miller, Reader’s Favorite
“A short story collection that excels in its sense of literary psychological growth and discovery. Libraries looking for interconnected short stories that represent life journeys and revelations will find The Man Who Screams At Nightfall…and other stories an appealing acquisition that promises much fodder for discussion to book club readers interested in fictional blends of psychological and social revelation.”
Midwest Book Review, D. Donovan
“Sharply observed, nuanced, precise, and morally challenging…”
“Leaming’s light hand with dialogue and keen sense of human psychology create a book that highlights weighty issues by putting a compassionate human face on human struggles. Sharp, inventive, and deeply moving: a fine literary collection.”
“Without a lengthy description of the characters, just enough to provide the imagery necessary to identify them, he catches and holds the reader’s attention like no other I’ve experienced in the hundreds of books and stories I’ve read over the years.”
Reader’s Favorite, L. Allen
Inside the Author of The Man Who Screams At Nightfall… and other stories:
I’m so excited to share that Rush Leaming, author of The Man Who Screams At Nightfall… and other stories visited with me recently. Here are some highlights from our conversation.
What inspired you to write your first book?
Well, I’ve been writing short stories since age 5, so I’ve always done it. It’s something inside of me that pushes me to write. Can’t really explain it.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Nope! I’m most proud of my latest book The Man Who Screams At Nightfall… and other stories. It’s my life’s work (up to now)
Who has impacted your life the most and in what way?
Writing-wise? I’ve always wanted to be the love child of Charles Bukowski, George Orwell, and Ernest Hemingway, if that were scientifically possible!
What event in your life do you remember first when asked for a humorous story?
I was the star of a number one country music video in the 1990’s
WOW! Thanks so much for visiting, Rush! I really enjoyed chatting with you and am looking for you in the videos 😉
