Night Work by Thomas Glavinic

Night Work

Thomas Glavinic

This is a very scary book. I couldn't bear to read more than a few chapters at a time - but I couldn't stay away from it either. It grips you from the first page and never lets go - and it will stay with you for a very long time after you have finished it!

Extract

There was an answer, there had to be. The outside world was a big place. He was just himself. He might never be able to find the answer outside, but he must look for the one within himself. And go on looking.
