|About the Book|
Edna OBriens classic novel NIGHT takes us through one long, sleepless night with Mary Hooligan. From the center of her bed, a four poster no less, Mary recalls her fertile past, from her childhood in the Irish countryside to the love affairs she has confronted since leaving for English shores. Wistful, wanton, this erotic reverie shows OBrien to be one of the foremost heirs to modernism. Very few writers use language as richly and sensuously . . . There are passages here worthy of Joyce (Library Journal).
