Author(s): Edna O'Brien
Edna O'Brien's classic, rocket of a novel, Night, is narrated by one of her most memorably, unhinged characters, Mary Hooligan. Lying on a four-poster bed, unable to sleep, she recounts (mis)adventures, courtships, and sexual encounters of the most transgressive kind, in a narrative voice of blistering originality. Out of print for some time, and now made available in the wake of O'Brien's bestselling memoir, Country Girl, Night is a novel which introduces us to one of the most compelling and garrulous narrators in modern fiction.
A paperback reissue of Edna O'Brien's classic novel, Night, repackaged in line with her new jacket design.
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.
