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.

From the Back Cover:

“A beautiful, fascinating novel. It is a thriller, a love story, and much more. Colm Tóibín is an extraordinary writer, daring and precise.”
–Roddy Doyle

“A mesmerizing, dark, powerful novel....”
The Times (U.K.)

“Tóibín is a fine writer. This novel pulls you in gradually and keeps you guessing....”
Edmonton Journal

“Tóibín’s genius is that he makes it impossible for us to walk away.”
The New Yorker

“A love story and a political thriller and about being Irish and a coming-out novel.”
Esquire

“A novel that reads like the most memorable of Camus....The story – told in restrained, spare, matter-of-fact prose – becomes more immediate and powerful as we are drawn in....The anger you feel as you read the final pages will remain long after you have closed the book.”
Globe and Mail

“Written in a self-reflective style that rings with honesty, bravely constructing a complex metaphor of sex and death in Argentina.”
New York Times

“This troubling and haunting book is one of shadows and secrets, half-lives and losses, endings and fears.”
Observer (U.K.)

“The intellect which has so conspicuously powered Tóibín’s writing career is fired here with a new ambition and purpose.”
Independent (U.K.)

“A fine novel, remarkable for the purity of its ambitions.”
Washington Post Book World

“A love story of the most serious and difficult kind. [Tóibín] has told it with profound artistry and truth.”
–Tobias Wolff

“Generates the tension of an unstoppable flow....Haunting....The Story of the Night is tautly constructed, politically hip, and geographically true.”
Pier
