Night of Amber: A Sequel to the Book of Nights (Verba Mundi)

Night of Amber: A Sequel to the Book of Nights (Verba Mundi) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Sequel to Sylvie Germain's highly acclaimed The Book of Nights (Godine, 1993; a New York Times Notable Book of the Year), Night of Amber continues the grotesque, fantastic, and riveting story of the Peniel family. It ranges from the terror and atrocity of the Algerian War to the frenzied Paris of May '68. Like The Book of Nights, which it brings to a dramatic conclusion, this "unusual and passionate" novel (Times Literary Supplement) skillfully blends myth, history, memorable characters, and pure emotional intensity with brilliant and original writing.<P>The hero of the novel is Charles-Victor Peniel, called "Night-of-Amber, " whose lonely and angry childhood eventually lands him in Paris at the time of the May '68 riots. There, Charles-Victor becomes involved with a band of dangerous companions, and in a whirlwind situation that spins uncontrollably into sadism and murder.
