Beloved for the lens of the strange he places on small-town life, Steven Millhauser further reveals in Voices in the Night the darkest parts of our inner selves to brilliant and dazzling effect. Here are stories of wondrously imaginative hyperrealism, stories that pose unsettling what-ifs or that find barely perceivable evils within the safe boundaries of our towns, homes, and even our bodies. Here, too, are stories culled from religion and fables: from Samuel, who in the masterly "A Voice in the Night" hears the voice of God calling him in the night; to a young, pre-enlightenment Buddha; to Rapunzel and her Prince awakened only to everyday disappointment.
Heightened by magic, the divine, and the uncanny, shot through with sly humor, Voices in the Night seamlessly combines the whimsy and surprise of the familiar with intoxicating fantasies that take us beyond our daily lives, all done with the hallmark sleight of hand and astonishing virtuosity of one of our greatest modern storytellers.

Amazing Stories, Careless Packaging
"Voices in the Night" consists of 17 independent stories, which appear in the chapter listing only as "Chapter 1", "Chapter 2", etc, making it impossible to find a particular story by name!

Fun and provoking
Steven Millhauser proves to be an exciting and unique new voice in fiction. He writes his short stories with daring vision, developing little worlds out of small towns where the unimaginable happens. 10/10, great listen due to the superb work of the voice actors.
