“He has landed a journalistic job at the Universal Press Agency in Washington (not state), but the graveyard shift and a strange roommate fail to boost Albert Nostran’s morale. A big news event would improve matters, but then it is his worst nightmare: John Lennon is shot. Not sufficiently trained, more a litterateur than a reporter, his dispatches fail to elicit unadulterated praise. A ray of hope, however, materializes in the presence of an iconoclastic copy girl. Charming, but a series of less than inspiring/resume-unfit jobs ensue until another newspaper man turns the main character on to the notion of freelancing. A more down-to-earth lass provides him with multi-layered opportunity. In All of the Night, we are plunged inside the world of the press agency, journalism and beyond (and below). A recent college graduate, nibbled at by a couple of above-average demons, wrestles to emerge in the world of full-blown, chafing adults. Like The Big Jiggety and Pop the Plug, All of the Night is laced with a compelling blend of humor and pathos, underscored by Nostran’s piquant, sometimes profound, seldom pedestrian, commentary and a panoply of (despite the night) colorful characters giving the protagonist a reason or two to push ahead even though (or perhaps because) the deck is stacked with jokers.” From the publisher.
