For most people, life is t a series of grand moments, headlines, or epiphanies. It is a day-to-day struggle, a moment-to-moment grasping for something just a bit better-something that makes you feel alive and loved. The characters in Only Lovers Wear Sunlight are such people. A young woman settles into her first apartment and tries to establish her identity. An old couple contemplates what awaits them. A traveler makes an unexpected connection with a child. You may walk past people like them on the street every day and never tice them, but like each of us, they need love and comfort and compassion too. These stories capture those small moments in time, incidents and events that should be familiar to all of us. Who kws? You may recognize your neighbor or a family member or a friend in one of the stories. And because we're all looking for the same things, you may even recognize yourself.
