About the Author

"Gripping...the darkest and most convincing account of the idiocies, insights and horrors of the "war on terror" that I've yet read."--Salon.com
"This stunning novel contains equal doses of cruelty and beauty, rendered with language so precise that it reaches your nerves with both pain and delight. There are no lukewarm emotions in this novel, only the intensity of people perpetually on the verge--Dalia Sofer, bestselling author of The Septembers of Shiraz
"[Glen Duncan's] paragraphs are nothing less than accomplishments. A DAY AND A NIGHT AND A DAY....delivers an astonishingly heady and warm and enthralling read. This is the good stuff."--Charles Bock, bestselling author of BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN
"Grim, violent and paradoxically elegant."--Kirkus Reviews
"Duncan's polished, merciless, and frequently hilarious prose supplies a trove of pleasures all its own."--Publishers Weekly
"A stunning new novel...I defy most readers to put it down."--Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Glen Duncan is one of the best English-language writers working today--smart and musical, funny and serious at once. A day and a night and a day is a good estimation of how long it will take you to gulp down this wonderful novel."--Darin Strauss, bestselling author of Chang & Eng and More Than it Hurts You
"Imagery is a tool of seduction for Duncan, who is one of England's best-kept literary secrets. And he wields it brilliantly . . . A Day and a Night and a Day is a triumph."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
"A meticulously artful book."--New York Magazine
"A gripping, entertaining read."--Orlando Sentinel
"Thrilling, a probe deep into the heart of our age . . . bracing and original."--International Herald Tribune
"Duncan can be clairvoyant about how people live now. . . . A Day and a Night and a Day . . . leave[s] you with the sense of having been brushed by something uncanny, so close does Duncan get to saying the unsayable. Bracing and original."--New York Times Book Review
