The School of Night

by Alan Wall

The School of Night is the shadowy group of Elizabethans who clustered around Sir Walter Raleigh. And 'shadowy' well describes this literary novel as the plot often drifts in and out of the shadows.


Five days ago I stole the Hariot Notebooks; the evening before, Daniel Paget had died. Daniel, who was not my brother, and yet was the nearest thing to a brother I have ever had. Did his death unhinge me? I don't feel unhinged ... The blackness in my heart, that fetid ditch of sorrow and suspicion is now being burnt away.
