Running in the Dark is a quirky, sentimental, and laughable ode to the ups and downs of life. Readers peer into the world of author Becky Hartung, a young woman who at the story’s start is attempting to finish her college years in one piece as she teaches improv classes and watches DVDs of Saturday Night Live and The Wonder Years (all seasons). A tale surrounded by quick wit and colorful characters, Hartung embarks on a journey to rediscover the beauty of being ordinary. From her adoption, her dependent nature for spending time with the playground teacher, and singing Bruce Springsteen songs at karaoke bars, she finds rest in the chaos. Running in the Dark battles the demons that haunt us all and tries to find a few good friends in the midst of suffering.
