WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Stories to Tell in the Middle of the Night is a love letter to the sleepless, 2am Facebookers and shift workers. Francesca Millican-Slater DJs her own late night radio show, channelling the rambling raconteurs of presenters from the wee hours to spin a noirish stack of stories, odd, familiar, funny, true and stolen. Reflecting on the night hours, she cross-fades bite-size stories of loneliness and lack of connection, of acts of kindness and cruelty and violence in fate, lost people, missed chances, words unsaid, horrors, narcissism and the creeping rage of the sleepless.
