“Ashley gives you a nod, so you pull out of the driveway as the sky turns from navy blue to black. Then again, it’s never truly black in LA—more like a charcoal haze dusted with the orange glow of streetlamps.”
Introducing The Lookout and Other Stories, the debut collection of previously published and premiere shorts by Daniel Gardina.
Ranging from the humorous to the dramatic, these five narratives include an absurd trip to the dentist’s office, a girl’s chance encounter with a man who knows her story all too well, and a couple whose lives will permanently change by the time they reach their favorite spot in the city: the lookout.
As a bonus, also added is an excerpt from the novel The Last Night.
★★★★★ Excellent stories to read over and over again.
An excellent read full of imaginative, funny, and sometimes pensive short stories. I give it my highest recommendation as a book no reader should be without.

★★★★★ New writer hits a home run.
These are a well written short stories. We hope the writer’s new novel is published fairly soon. I can’t wait. It will be the start of a great career.

★★★★★ Keep your eye on Gardina.
Grab a copy of this book. Reminiscent of Bret Easton Ellis’s early work, if it bedded T.C. Boyle’ s raw view of the human being. I need to know what happens next.
