A Bright Soothing Noise Audiobook by Peter Brown

bright soothing noise brown peter

Wired and clinging frantically to nostalgic ideals of the family he left behind, a character watches the sunrise through his rearview mirror. From dead-beats and alcoholics to strippers and pubescent intellectuals, Brown peels away superficial layers to reveal the monstrous beauty of finding meaning and belonging in a sterile, unfriendly world. After trying four operated stories I finally just gave up and put the book away. Compelling, beautifully written, and full of tension, each story packs a startling and memorable punch.
