Publisher Comments:

“A stunning new novel....A much better work than John Updikes post-9/11 foray, Terrorist…I defy most readers to put it down.”
—Cleveland Plain Dealer

 

An extraordinary new work of fiction that the New York Times Book Review calls, “Bracing and original,” A Day and a Night and a Day by Glen Duncan is a powerful book for our times. The critically acclaimed author of The Bloodstone Papers returns with a literary blockbuster that examines race, class, sex, death, faith, terror, torture, and modernity with extraordinary insight and intelligence. A Day and a Night and a Day, which salon.com calls, “Gripping…a puzzle box spring-loaded with surprises,” is a monumental feat of exceptional storytelling alive with big characters, huge themes, violence, suspense, and a heart-breaking love story.

Synopsis:

Illegally arrested and without hope of reprieve, unlikely terrorist Augustus Rose finds himself at the mercy of Harper, ruthless interrogator and ambassador for the darkest forces at work in our times. In the ordeal that brings his whole life under brutal scrutiny, Augustus has but one shield: memory. His is a past filled with talismanic women, but at its center is Selina, a stunning, rebellious white aristocrat with whom he shared an epic, taboo love. Their affair, begun in 1960s Manhattan, would yield a lifetime's worth of passion, heartbreak, and wanderlust, leading Augustus from Harlem to Greenwich Village, from El Salvador to Barcelona, from Morocco to a bleak Scottish island where death seems his only companion.

About the Author

10 pages in and I was already blown away. His writing reminds me of William Gibson, somehow - impressively unique and spot-on descriptions of familiar places and objects. I'm thinking I'll need to read everything he's written...
