Riassunto: Fiction. "From the first page, you know you're in the wrong hands. So perfectly, exquisitely wrong," Peter Darbyshire said about DARK ALL DAY, DJ Berger's second book. Inconsolably drawn to the end of things, and the forlorn beauty of wreckages, "With his second collection of short fiction, DJ Berger offers 41 discrete tales of indiscreet characters. They will blow your mind one by one. If you crossed Stephen King with Raymond Carver you'd be getting close to what's going on here. The vision is bleak indeed, but also funny, intimate, and more than painfully real: a true dark triumph," said Carolyn Smart. Each story is introduced with a sketch in Berger's signature style. Hope and humor are used as distant but gleaming stars, to undermine the darkness where it can, and what fires many of these stories is a sense of anarchic theatre, where anything might come next.
About the Author: Darryl Joel Berger's first collection of stories—called Punishing Ugly Children—was published in Fall 2010 by Killick Press. This same manuscript won the 2007 David Adams Richards Prize and was shortlisted for the national/Canadian ReLit Awards. His short story "Scissors" was a finalist in the 2007 Commonwealth Short Story Competition and his novella Broken Hill was a finalist for the Malahat Review Novella Prize. He lives with his wife Christina and daughter Oona in Kingston, Ontario.
