Night and Its Longings
Jake Garrett, a writer living in New York's Greenwich Village, is paid a surprising late-night visit from the husband whose wife, Vera, Jake had an affair with ten years earlier. Even more surprising: the husband asks Jake to help find her, for she's disappeared. Jake is thrust back into a world he thought had been lost to him forever. Jake's undying love for Vera propels his search for her through the night-time streets of the city and, finally, to the remote beaches of the Carolina coast. This is a tale of lost love, adultery, and crime told in a taut, lyrical style-keeping the love story and the mystery inseparably intertwined. At its heart pulses the greatest mystery of all: the Self-why we do what we do, how we make amends for a life gone wrong, and how in the darkness of night, we see ourselves in the clearest light.
