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.

About the Author:

Since her debut novel The Country Girls Edna O'Brien has written over twenty works of fiction along with a biography of James Joyce and Lord Byron. She is the recipient of many awards including the Irish Pen Lifetime Achievement Award, the American National Art's Gold Medal and the Ulysses Medal. Born and raised in the west of Ireland she has lived in London for many years.
