The Story of the Night by Colm Tóibín

£8.99Price

Richard Garay lives alone with his mother, hiding his sexuality from her and from those around him. Stifled by a job he despises, he finds himself willing to take considerable risks. Set in Argentina in a time of great change, The Story of the Night is a powerful and moving novel about a man who, as the Falklands War is fought and lost, finds his own way to emerge into the world.

 

-----

 

A brave and remarkable novel, the impact of which no reader will shed.

Dermot BolgerSunday Independent

 

The Story of the Night is, in the end, a love story of the most serious and difficult kind. Tóibín has told it with profound artistry and truth.

Tobias Wolff

 

Nobody before Tóibín has made such honesty stand so clearly for political and personal integrity . . . In each of his first three novels he has invented a strong central character but Garay is by far his most memorable.
