Set in Thailand, the Congo, Greece, Spain, and America, Leaming’s latest book examines love, memories, loneliness, loss, regret, and redemption. In the title story, “The Man Who Screams at Nightfall,” the newly arrived young protagonist finds he resembles the deeply troubled outcast in the village in more ways than one. A beautiful nun flirts with a dying man to keep his spirits up in “Parade.” “Ella, La Locha,” tells the story of a lost woman struggling to escape her inner demons. Violence and intimacy come to the foreground in “AGORA DOGS,” a story of a young man trying to escape the law. A drug rehab security guard falls in love with an inmate in “Robo-Cop Rides Again.” Ranging from grim to tender, these stories beautifully reveal the intricacies of the human condition. Leaming’s characters are memorable, his writing clever and commanding, and his explorations of life and human consciousness lucid. This fine collection that looks at the complexities of love and life with empathy, understanding, and a rich sense of place makes for a must-read.
