Product description

Review

It s reminiscent of Nick Hornby or Bill Bryson if you like those writers you ll love Marchant but somehow less needy than Hornby and less reliant on the joke than Bryson. It looks as though it risks being a self-indulgent mess but it isn t. Marchant somehow carries us through all this, with patience, good humour, self-lacerating honesty and an immense amount of charm. I don t see how anyone could fail to like it --Evening Standard

The book proves its worth by offering up a shared emotional understanding of what the night can bring --Scottish Sunday Herald

Is January the darkest month of the year? It certainly feels like it, which gives you a very good excuse to stay inside and read this witty and wide-ranging discussion of the world through the eyes of night owl polymath (writer, musician, lecturer) Ian Marchant... this is an incredibly funny and well written outpouring of one man s life lived according to his own principles, both in daylight and at night --Resident magazine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Ian Marchant is a writer, broadcaster and performer. He is originally from Newhaven in East Sussex, and now lives with his family in the not-entirely real county of Radnorshire. Before taking up writing books, he sang in various unimaginably obscure bands, wrote up the results of horse races in betting shops and ran a large second-hand bookshop on the Charing Cross Road. He currently teaches creative writing at Birmingham City University and with the National Academy of Writing. Something of the Night is his seventh book.
