Review

"Gripping.the darkest and most convincing account of the idiocies, insights and horrors of the "war on terror" that I've yet read." -- Salon.com "A gripping, entertaining read." -- Orlando Sentinel "Grim, violent and paradoxically elegant." -- Kirkus Reviews "A meticulously artful book." -- New York Magazine "A stunning new novel.I defy most readers to put it down." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer "Duncan has struck gold in the relevance sweepstakes. A Day and a Night and a Day . . . leave[s] you with the sense of having been brushed by something uncanny, so close does Duncan get to saying the unsayable. Bracing and original." -- New York Times Book Review "Grim, violent and paradoxically elegant."--Kirkus Reviews "This stunning novel contains equal doses of cruelty and beauty, rendered with language so precise that it reaches your nerves with both pain and delight. There are no lukewarm emotions in this novel, only the intensity of people perpetually on the verge--Dalia Sofer, bestselling author of The Septembers of Shiraz "Duncan can be clairvoyant about how people live now. . . . "A Day and a Night and a Day" . . . leave[s] you with the sense of having been brushed by something uncanny, so close does Duncan get to saying the unsayable. Bracing and original."--New York Times Book Review "Gripping...the darkest and most convincing account of the idiocies, insights and horrors of the "war on terror" that I've yet read."--Salon.com "[Glen Duncan's] paragraphs are nothing less than accomplishments. A DAY AND A NIGHT AND A DAY....delivers an astonishingly heady and warm and enthralling read. This is the good stuff."--Charles Bock, bestselling author of BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN "Glen Duncan is one of the best English-language writers working today--smart and musical, funny and serious at once. A day and a night and a day is a good estimation of how long it will take you to gulp down this wonderful novel."--Darin Strauss, bestselling author of Chang & Eng and More Than it Hurts You "A gripping, entertaining read."--Orlando Sentinel "Thrilling, a probe deep into the heart of our age . . . bracing and original."--International Herald Tribune "Imagery is a tool of seduction for Duncan, who is one of England's best-kept literary secrets. And he wields it brilliantly . . . A Day and a Night and a Day is a triumph."--Richmond Times-Dispatch "A meticulously artful book."--New York Magazine "A stunning new novel...I defy most readers to put it down."--Cleveland Plain Dealer "Duncan's polished, merciless, and frequently hilarious prose supplies a trove of pleasures all its own."--Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

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.
