Fiction. "Barbara Henning's SMOKING IN THE TWILIGHT BAR is a book of linked glimpses into urban working lives after dark, and in its presentation and tone it may be unique. Moving from bars to poolhalls to bedrooms, the intelligent and observant guide and narrator gives us a world of violence and sexuality that is understood but never judged. It is a powerful and memorable act of witnessing"-Charles Baxter.
