9781847671844: Night Work: A Novel

The routine of daily life is such that one goes to sleep with the security that tomorrow will arrive, just as it did today.

Jonas, a young professional in contemporary Vienna, wakes up one morning to discover that he may be the last living being on earth. The highways are empty. The restaurants are empty. The animals have disappeared. The radio only emits white noise and the internet is down. No one answers his phone calls. 

Night Work is a fast-paced, psychological thriller, exploring the darkness that lies deep within us all. With skilled, efficient prose, Glavinic unsettles our notion of the human condition and the artifice of civilization, peeling back the onion to reveal our greatest fears, that no one is in charge and that something unthinkable and unjust is about to occur. Night Work is a small gem of a book, unlike any other you’ve read.

Book Description:

Thrilling and philosophical, compulsive and exhilarating

From the Inside Flap:

The radio and TV are suddenly filled with white noise, there's no newspaper, the Internet is down and no one's answering the phone.

Jonas seems to be the last living creature on the planet. But what happened? And why is he still here?

A thriller and a psychological mystery, Night Work also asks profound philosophical questions.

Just don't read it on your own.

From the German reviews
'Impressive. Writers tell stories, but writers of Glavinic's rank create worlds in which we lose ourselves.' Die Welt

'Glavinic has created a gripping mystery - a book that leaves its readers disturbed yet happy, and full of questions.' Focus

'One of the most thrilling novels of the year. A fantastic tale about the fragility of the individual.' Nurnburger Zeitung
