Language: English . Brand New. If you look hard enough into the history of anything, you will discover things that seem to be connected but are not. So claims a character in Frederick Reiken s wonderful, surprising novel, which seems, in fact, to be determined to prove just the opposite. How else to explain the threads that link a middle-aged woman on vacation in Florida with a rock and roll singer visiting her comatose brother in Utah, where he s been transported after a motorcycle injury in Israel, where he works with a man whose long-lost mother, in a retirement community in New Jersey, recognizes him in a televised report about an Israeli-Palestinian skirmish? And that s not the half of it.In Day for Night, critically acclaimed writer Reiken spins an unlikely and yet utterly convincing story about people lost and found. They are all refugees from their own lives or history s cruelties, yet they wind up linked to each other in compelling and unpredictable ways that will keep you guessing until the very end.

The question the story caused me to ponder more than any other was that of what it takes to find a thing that's hidden, a thing that lurks within whatever it is you're staring at each day. Perhaps the meaning of the story is that you must look deep rather than far if you want to unlock any of the secrets of the universe, that once unlocked a secret loses its power unless a part of it is withheld.'
From Florida to Salt Lake City to New Jersey to the Dead Sea, amidst page-turning drama and mystery, Frederick Reiken's wondrous and exquisite novel glides effortlessly across time and space in search of one family's unresolved past.
** 'From the dazzling opening chapter of Day For Night, Frederick Reiken makes clear that the stakes for his characters, and for his readers, are nothing less than everything. Here is a world, our world, in which no-one gets to escape the net of history and no-one, finally, gets to deny their human connections. I held my breath while I watched Reiken assemble his own extraordinary minyan ( Margot Livesey, author of The House on Fortune Street)
** 'Compelling, ambitiously structured novel . . . The links between these tales are complex, and often deliberately elusive. Reiken moves through his cast of narrators with such control that the very sense of ever-multiplying connections lurking just out ( Robert Collins, Sunday Times)
** 'A novel with a sprawling scope, using the first-person narrative of 10 seemingly disconnected characters on the lasting impact of the Holocaust, really ought not to work, or even be coherent. But this one does, and the result is a dazzling tour de force ( Catherine Taylor, Sunday Telegraph)
** '[Frederick Reiken] seems set to become a literary star rather than merely a cult author ... This is a novel of considerable ambition. Reiken skilfully marshals a cast of complex characters across a variety of locations ... Reiken is a soulful writer as we ( Henry Hitchins, Financial Times)
