Black Coffee


Black Coffee

By Daniel Ford

Released July 1, 2019

Black Coffee, a new short story collection from the author of Sid Sanford Lives!, brews together heartsick, overcaffeinated characters and dialogue that sizzles off a greasy diner grill.

Enter a mournful veteran’s mind as he loses his grip on reality. Join an all-female extermination squad hunting down despicable men. Wait at the bar with two soul mates as they battle their stormy past and try to bring a cold love back to a boil.

These nine moving, funny, and, at times, terrifying stories explore how people meander in and out of each other’s lives, why family bonds are the hardest to navigate and break, and how hope lights a path even in the darkest of coffee cups.

Daniel Ford is the author of Sid Sanford Lives! and Black Coffee. He’s also the co-founder of Writer’s Bone, a literary podcast and website that champions aspiring and established authors. A Bristol, Conn., native (and longtime Queens, N.Y., transplant), Ford now lives with his wife Stephanie in Boston’s North End, where coffee and cannolis are always within arm’s reach.
