The Story Of The Night 

The Story Of The Night 

Colm Tóibín

What Douglas Stuart Says: Set in the early ’80s, Argentina is controlled by oil-rich Americans and power-hungry Generals. A young English professor has been living in the shadow of his mother and hiding his sexual desires. When he is liberated by her death, both he and the country around him are set into a period of enlightenment and upheaval. The loss and grief in the third act left me reeling for days.

What They Say: “A brave and remarkable novel, the impact of which no reader will shed” – Dermot Bolger, Sunday Independent
