|“Long After Dark” New book by Todd Petersen|

I found this book at the library and loved it.Â So much that I had to buy a copy so I could mark it up.Â Todd has written a book of short stories, with a novella, that doesn’t attempt to sugarcoat Mormon life, but is full of insight.
Â What was really cool was that as I read, I recognized a couple of the stories from Popcorn Popping.
Â And guess what?Â He lives here!Â When I read the first one that was familiar, I wasn’t sure.Â I thought, “Hmm…this sounds familiar.”Â Then when I read the second one, I knew because I’d loved that story.
So I called him and attended a discussion he led of his book.Â He reminds me of Brian Gibson, smart, but not as funny or friendly, also way more hairy.Â Maybe he needs to age a little and lose some hair (no offense, Brian :)).
This is a worthy book, you guys.Â Todd has a style all his own and I hope he succeeds on every level of the “biz” because we need more fiction writers like this in Mormondom.
