About this title


The sombre, impassioned, night-time monologue of middle-aged Mary Hooligan. The author also wrote "The Country Girls", "The Lonely Girl", "A Pagan Place" and "Johnny I Hardly Knew You".

From the Back Cover:

"The most gifted woman now writing fiction in English." –Philip Roth

"I look to everything Miss O'Brien writes with an eager expectation." –Claire Tomalin, Evening Standard

"What amazes in book after book is O'Brien's hypnotically seductive story-telling, the power of her mesmerizing language, and her vision into the dark reaches of the human heart." --Miami Herald

Edna O'Brien's 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 O'Brien to be one of the foremost heirs to modernism. "Very few writers use language as richly and sensously...There are passages here worthy of Joyce" (Library Jounal).

Edna O'Brien is the author of numerous books, including A Pagan Place, Down by the River, House of Splendid Isolation, Time and Tide, Lantern Slides, and, most recently, Wild Decembers. O'Brien grew up in Ireland and now lives in London.
