THE SUN­LIT NIGHT

YEN - - REVIEWS -

Re­becca Din­er­stein, Bloomsbury, $27.99 The Sun­lit Night fol­lows two New York­ers who sep­a­rately es­cape their claus­tro­pho­bic lives for a tiny ar­chi­pel­ago in the Nor­we­gian Sea – Frances to an artist’s colony to “learn to paint with only the colour yel­low” and Yasha to ful­fil a prom­ise to his fa­ther to bury him “at the top of the world”. Din­er­stein’s dreamy prose and lay­ered nar­ra­tive make this quirky story, of an un­likely meet­ing at the edge of the earth, un-miss­able.
