The short stories of A Bright Soothing Noise will haunt you long after you have finished reading. They are tales of the hopeless making a last grasp at hope and leaping blindly into a new life. But this new and unknown life is often more terrifying than anything they tried to leave behind. Compelling, beautifully written, and full of tension, each story packs a startling and memorable punch.Fight Club: A NovelRefresh, Refresh: StoriesKaboom: Embracing the Suck in a Savage Little War

What may sooth the soul has also been one of Mankind's destroyers for centuries. "A Bright Soothing Noise" is a collection of short fiction from Peter Brown. Focusing on the desire to connect to our world to the detriment of self, Brown shows thoughtful, flawed, human characters who struggle to relate to their world in the way many of us do. "A Bight Soothing Noise" is a remarkable anthology with plenty to ponder within.

Wow--this was an extraordinary collection. Brown is really a phenomenal writer. These stories are haunting, heartbreaking, and sometimes hilarious. What really got me, though, is the writing. Brown's prose is gorgeous--there were times when I had to put the book down for a minute just to think about the line I'd just read. Great stuff! Can't wait for the next collection!
