Midnight and Sometimes Later
by Richard Mosher
"Midnight and Sometimes Later" is a railroad novel: a tale of blue-collar workers who moved freight from town to Midwestern town radiating out from Minneapolis. It stews in the Minneapolis West Bank community, a post-hippie culture of bars, cafes, and ramshackle apartments backing up to the Mississippi. A tale of American mendacity and excess in the waning days of the lie-filled Nixon presidency.
