Night is a Room

By Naomi Wallace

Paperback £14.99

Liana and Marcus seem to be the ideal married couple. But when Marcus's previously unknown birth mother makes a surprise visit for his fortieth birthday, they find themselves torn apart.

Naomi Wallace's Night is a Room is a searing exploration of love’s power to both ruin and remake our lives.

Press Quotes

'Taking its title from William Carlos Williams's poem 'Complaint,' Night is a Room is one of the more audacious jaw-droppers in recent memory. Strange, surprising, often funny'

New York Times

'Primal and tragic… Night is a Room faintly recalls Albee and Pinter’s cryptic, psychosexual puzzle… Desire, genetic destiny and the destructive force of love are the topics here, ones that transcend class.'

Time Out New York

'Written with a kind of ecstatic lyricism, Night is a Room also demolishes a sexual taboo.'
