While hosting a popular late-night radio segment called Tell Me a Story author Joel Farrelly encounters a vast array of different callers from all walks of life, each with their own unique and often terrifying tale to tell. This is a collection of the show's most memorable segments as well as a memoir of how it all went horribly wrong when, at the height of his success, a mysterious caller forced Joel to recount a disturbing story from his own past... The one story Joel hoped he would never have to tell.
There is something about listening to horror stories at night that make them a bit more effective. I chose this one as a story to listen to before bed, and I believe it made it that much better. The stories are not very realistic, but something about the description and narration in the dark drew my attention in and haunted me until I fell asleep!
