About the Book

Exploring right and wrong and good and evil on the mean streets of New York City, author Michael Marra presents a second collection of twelve short stories in When Angels Cry


Drawn from Marra’s experiences growing up in New York City, the narratives illustrate that there is redemption among all of life’s murder, corruption, betrayal, passion, and greed. In the selection “More Than a Cloud,” the family of a former boxer waits expectantly to hear the outcome of his liver transplant. In “The Confession,” Father Murphy has heard everything during confessions throughout his twenty-six years at Saint Rosalie’s Church in a crime-filled area in Brooklyn—until two men separately confess to the same brutal murder of a family of five. In “The Piano Man” the Nassau County Police Department investigates the murders of young women who’ve been garroted with piano wire.

When Angels Cry provides insight into life’s stark realities, but also shows there are bright spots in the darkness among us.
