Two brothers must make a grisly sacrifice in order to break free from their Hamptons home. A Colorado realtor pursues ever bigger sales in the rarified air of Rocky Mountain ski country. A nocturnal band of high school dropouts colonize the trees of Manhattan's parks, then, as their numbers grow, migrate upward and outward onto its bridges.

The stories of Night Life feature an array of characters seeking release-from the places that contain them, from each other, at times from gravity itself. Some fair better, some worse, but all become incandescent before the backdrop of night.

He is the author of Louse Point: Stories From the East End and the critically acclaimed novel, Sparrow Beach, both of which are set on Long Island's East End. His story, "Fremont's Return," has been presented as a one-person, two-act play, featuring actor Gerard Doyle, at several eastern Long Island venues, with more shows planned.
