Night of Fire, Hardback Book

Night of Fire Hardback



Selected as a Book of the Year 2016 by the Spectator'It began with a spark.'A house is burning. Its six tenants include a failed priest, a naturalist, a neurosurgeon and an invalid dreaming of his anxious boyhood.

Their landlord's relationship to them is both intimate and shadowy.

At times he shares their preoccupations and memories. He will also share their fate. In Night of Fire the passions and obsessions of these unquiet lives reach beyond the dying house that holds them.

Ranging from an African refugee camp to the cremation-grounds of India, their memories mutate and criss-cross in a novel of lingering beauty and mystery.
