72-year-old August Brill is recovering from a car accident. Plagued by insomnia, he tries to push back thoughts about the things he would prefer to forget - his wife s recent death and the horrific murder of his granddaughter s boyfriend, Titus - by telling himself stories. He imagines a parallel world in which America is not at war with Iraq but with itself. In this other America the twin towers did not fall, and the 2000 election results led to secession, as state after state pulled away from the union, and a bloody civil war ensued. Brill is joined in the early hours by his granddaughter, and he gradually opens up to her and recounts the story of his marriage and confronts the grim reality of Titus's death. Man in the Dark is a novel of our time, a book that forces us to confront the blackness of night whilst also celebrating the existence of ordinary joys in a brutal world. This 2008 Faber Paperback is in Good condition.
