The Night Guest is a confident and engaging debut that poignantly depicts the final act of a life, the memories and loves that can (and can’t) be regained, and the mysterious visitor that we all become, eventually, to ourselves.

One certitude about “The Night Guest” is that it’s a superb first novel that investigates the terrors — both extraordinary and mundane — of old age.

A pleasurable novel, with turns of plot and phrase both startling and elegant.
