Review:

Longtime fans of A.N. Wilson's Lampitt Chronicles have awaited this conclusion and climax to the series with impatient vigor. As deeply entertaining, exact, and moving as the previous novels, A Watch in the Night still manages to solve old mysteries, tie up loose ends, reencapsulate all that has come before, and leave the reader with a sense that all is right with the universe. Julian Ramsey, a nice guy who is thrust somewhat unwillingly into an adventure bigger than himself, finds grace in unexpected places and comes to terms with shattered dreams.

About the Author:

A. N. Wilson is the author of the acclaimed biographies Tolstoy, C. S. Lewis, Jesus, and Paul; God's Funeral, and several celebrated novels. He lives in London.

Book Description W. W. Norton and Company, Inc. Paperback. Condition: New. 228 pages. Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.4in. x 0.6in.An aging man is watching Shakespeare on television in the setting of a modest suburban house. Do not be deceived by the simplicity of such an image. For the man is Julian Ramsay, biographer of the literary Lampitt dynasty, and the famous black actress playing Margaret of Anjou was once, perhaps, the love of his life. Julians mind wanders to a night that began with making love to the young and gorgeous Dodie and ended in the small hours of the morning outside the flat where James Petworth Lampitt lived and died. This is the story of that one evening, in the course of which Julian journeys from Londons high society to its low life, meets many characters from his past, revisits memories, and, at last, unravels the mysteries of the two violent deaths that dominate the Lampitt Chronicles. From the joys of acting to the pangs of unrequited love, from a reunion of aging Fascists in London to a wintry romantic interlude in Venice, the plot of A. N. Wilsons tour de force leads the reader with consummate skill towards a wholly unexpected conclusion. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
