"Arthur [WInfield] Knight has written a serious book of fiction that accurately and intensely reflects a woman's plight after the loss of her husband and her mesmerizing descent into addiction. Reading the pages of this slender (102 pages) novel is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. The Darkness Starts Up Where You Stand is highly recommended for devotees of significant, contemporary fiction." -- Midwest Book Review
