night is full of staring faces, strange sounds, and unprotected touches. NIGHT
CONNECTIONS is a collection of fourteen stories, mostly collected from
listeners to Dick Summer's middle of the night radio program on NBC Radio. They
are very short connections. But they will stay with you for as long as you stay
with them. Connections are fragile. It is only touching you that gives them
From the Author
The people in these NIGHT
CONNECTIONS got to me. Most of them are real flesh and blood people. Some of
them felt startlingly real to me when I met them in my imagination. I fly a
small airplane. At night, I can't help but think about what is going on down on
the ground...in those homes, and parks, and cars that are just lights from
where I sit. People are loving, earning each other's trust, taking each other's
lives, laughing, writing last letters, being born, leaving, and some...are
connecting with each other for the first time. Sometimes the first time is the
only time. I can't tell you how much I have loved the connection with them. I
hope they will also get to you.

Reviewer: Alan J Balkin from Paris, France
finishing listening to Dick Summer's "Night Connections" I could not help
wonder why this was so good. What is it that this guy has that allows him to
convey our inner strengths, weaknessess, our trumphs and our foibles. For one,
Dick Summer "gets it." He is a master of detail. Nothing goes unnoticed nor
untold. He does not spare us any of the details of who we are, and what we may
think. The funny thing is that not just anyone can masterfully "truthspeak"
like Dick Summer does in "Night Connections". He says what most of us have
thought, but may only have whispered to ourselves. As a long time fan of his, I
must say that even if you are not, you should certainly do yourself the favor
of getting "Night Connections" and hear for yourself, what you might have been
Some of you will understand this, it certainly is "mouth

is a master storyteller and a keen observer of the human condition. "Night
Connections" is a collection of vignettes about love: both good and bad. We've
all been there... or perhaps just wanted to be there. The greatest moments of
our lives; the times we'd just as soon forget; the encounters we only dream
about. "Night Connections" captures them all in storylines that tug at our
heart strings one moment... then bring a smile to our face the next.
Whether or not you've experienced the individual scenarios, you can certainly
identify with them. "Night Connections" is a great escape for anyone who's ever
been in love, regardless of the outcome.
