THE LONELINESS CAFE, 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
