About this title

Synopsis:

Set in Argentina during the time of generals and the Falklands War, Richard Garay is forced to hide his sexuality and professional desires, yet as things in his country begin to settle, he starts taking greater risks to find his own happiness.

Review:

In the past decade Colm Tóibín has garnered international fame for his fiction, reporting, and travel writing. Now, in his new novel, The Story of Night, he breaks new emotional ground with the story of a gay man coming of age in Argentina during the Falklands War. Tóibín weds his two themes--the ongoing Argentinean struggle toward democracy and the personal journey of a man coming out--with intellectual deftness and literary agility. Written with grace and understatement The Story of Night is Tóibín's best work yet.
