The Exit CoachThe Exit Coach

Megan Staffel

How do we find the courage to change?  In The Exit Coach, a collection of six stories and a novella, the characters arrive at an impasse that requires them to step out of the wreckage of their habituated lives.  It is the entrance of an unexpected voice–a visitor from France, a retired talent scout, an invisible friend, a midnight phone call, or even a wild animal–that disrupts their patterns of behavior and illuminates the possibilities they’ve been blind to, pointing the way to an exit they’ve dreamt of, but lacked the courage to enter.

“These stories feel like portraits of lives scaled down to pivotal moments, but together they form a mural of humanity in common.” — Kirkus Reviews
