Product description

Synopsis

Boldly combining the highly personal with the brilliantly scholarly, "In the Dark Room" explores the question of how memory works emotionally and culturally. It is narrated through the prism of the author's experience of losing both his parents, his mother when he was sixteen, his father when he was on the cusp of adulthood and of trying, after a breakdown some years later, to piece things together. Drawing on the lessons of centuries of literature, philosophy and visual art, Dillon interprets the relics of his parents and of his childhood in a singularly original and arresting piece of writing.

About the Author

Brian Dillon was born in Dublin in 1969. He writes on literature and visual art for publications including Frieze, TLS, Independent, New Statesman, Art Review, Modern Painters and Cabinet. In the Dark Room is his first book.
