Room For Two
(TNT TOP 35) Darren is an anxious and ill-tempered man who spends his nights drinking solo at his favorite bar to unwind. One night, a stranger takes the seat beside Darren and he becomes reluctantly engaged in conversation with the loquacious -- and oddly charming fellow; during which, he finds his childhood memories eerily coincide with the newcomer beside him.
"James Henry Hall's ROOM FOR TWO has one of those shimmering, prized premises; the kind that, once you hear what it's about, you add it immediately to your bank of urban legends; the kind of story you wanna tell the next person you see. But no story lives on premise alone, and Hall delivers it with a closed fist, knuckles on a wooden bar, or fingertips, perhaps, tapping the boxspring under the bed." -- Josh Malerman, Author of Bird Box.
