“In Midnight in a Perfect World, Collin Kelley navigates the moody landscapes of desire, travels the dark edge of Eros in the 21st century of love, charting his passage in language sometimes brutal, sometimes lyrical, often both at once. And if that perfect world all lovers seek remains elusive, here we break the boundaries of the familiar and arrive in a place where we can breathe the twilight air and step, almost, into the dream of it, ourselves.” — CECILIA WOLOCH, author of Tsigan

“Collin Kelley is a master craftsman, reliable and unrelenting with language of emotional precision. Midnight in a Perfect World versifies life, love, and loss on two continents. This is a collection of deft, intimate stories worthy of being reread and reexamined often.” — STEVEN REIGNS, author of Inheritance

Midnight in a Perfect World is an excellently observed and written collection, taking you deeper and deeper into a world which you may never have encountered so closely or so intimately. It is an achingly emotional collection, filled with love, disappointment, betrayal, loss, and lack of and yearning for love. It does more than tear at your heart-strings … it plucks them out altogether.” — AGNES MEADOWS, author of This One Is For You
