Things in the Night

Eastern European Literature Series
Mati Unt
Translated by Eric Dickens

Things in the Night explores a world on the edge of disaster—plagued by mysterious power-outages and threatened by ominous conspiracies—juxtaposed against images and stories of unsurpassed beauty and tenderness.

Beginning with the simple but moving words, “My Dear, I feel I owe you an explanation,” and ending with the passionate, lyrical, and immensely sad, “Those were beautiful years, beautiful autumn days,” this astounding novel, set in Estonia near the end of the millennium, is a hymn to the very best in the human imagination and a eulogy for what humans, at their worst, may destroy.
