From the publisher

A love story full of honesty and truth, Colm Toibin portrays a difficult relationship during dark times.

Richard Garay lives alone with his mother, hiding his sexuality from her and from those around him. Stifled by a job he despises, he finds himself willing to take considerable risks.

Set in Argentina in a time of great change, The Story of the Night is a powerful and moving novel about a man who, as the Falklands War is fought and lost, finds his own way to emerge into the world.

'A brave and remarkable novel, the impact of which no reader will shed.' - Sunday Independent
