By Nightfallby Michael Cunningham
Synopses & Reviews
A New York Times Bestseller
Peter and Rebecca Harris, midforties, are prosperous denizens of Manhattan. Hes an art dealer, shes an editor. They live well. They have their troubles—their ebbing passions, their wayward daughter, and certain doubts about their careers—but they feel as though theyre happy. Happy enough. Until Rebeccas much younger, look-alike brother, Ethan (known in the family as Mizzy, short for the Mistake), comes to visit. And after he arrives, nothing will ever be the same again.
This poetic and compelling masterpiece is a heartbreaking look at a marriage and the way we now live. Full of shocks and aftershocks, By Nightfall is a novel about the uses and meaning of beauty, and the place of love in our lives.
