Read full description of the books:



The best book I’ve read since Mario Vargas Llosa’s “The Feast of the Goat.” Really? 2 genuine masterpieces within one month? Karma is doing me a favor; Fortuna’s Wheel, in my case, travels heavenward...

Wow. “By Nightfall.” Golly wow. I had very much forgotten about Cunningham, though I list him as my favorites, & now it is crystal clear why. I was left hella-impressed by “Specimen Days,” a book the literati have literally forgotten. That was an exercise in genre mixing, of wild and fantastical flights of fancy. This one is focused, all-encompassing. I began thinking about “Death in Venice” by Mann, and suddenly Cunningham makes an allusion to it right in the middle of it. I know that I'm in the correct wave, suddenly: that I am in the presence of something grand.

I will shock some: this is better than Mann’s opus. This book is what “A Single Man” that kinda pretentious film (I haven't read the novel), wanted to aspire to be. It is probably in the top ten gay lit books. Certainly.

Compare the American Cunningham with the British Ian McEwan. You can. Their styles are similar, but whereas McEwan exalts the British riche with its multifaceted perks of living in the highest echelons of modern society, Cunningham makes me for once proud to have a person on the same stratosphere as rich Brit live so-- fully, splendidly, enviously-- in 2010's America. The protagonist is a thinking man, but his heart somehow forms the narrative, builds its parameters firmly, and makes the quaint tale a full-blown pretty perfect masterpiece. I am not lying, it is as particular and tasteful and amazing as "Death in Venice": Beauty itself. I read it in two sittings… that in itself is magnificent (modern lives, it seems, are so complex, after all)...

Reviews of the By Nightfall


ALEX

All right, thanks fast.

THOMAS

Strongly recommend

MOLLIE

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

THOMAS

Another one-time book
