THE LONELINESS CAFE
A Collection of Short Stories

By Richard Dokey

 

“Dokey is a writer who can take common people and ordinary places and make them resonate with meanings that suggest themselves to the reader long after the book is closed.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“He is able to tackle enormous themes (birth, love, marriage, old age) and successfully incorporate them into relatively brief, carefully tailored stories. The author should be commended also for his ability to move effortlessly among a range of narrative voices.”
Publishers Weekly

“Readers will be taken aback, too, by Dokey's candor and eloquence” Chicago Tribune

“The complexity of Dokey's fiction creeps up, unveiling striking layers of humanity to quietly reward the patient observer”
The Sacramento Bee

“He speaks to us in a solitary, moving language that only writers as skilled as Dokey can record. We are transported to the highest levels of human experience.”
Milwaukee Journal

 

Richard Dokey's stories have won awards and prizes, have been cited in Best American Short Stories, Best of the West, have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and have been reprinted in numerous regional and national literary reviews and anthologies. Pale Morning Dun, his collection of short stories, published by University of Missouri Press, was nominated for the American Book Award. His writings have appeared most recently in Adelaide Literary Magazine, Alaska Quarterly Review, Grain(Canada), Natural Bridge, Southern Humanities Review, Lumina and The Chattahooc-hee Review.
