Reviews

"Adrian takes great imaginative risks in his writing....He clearly knows the sorrow of the human comedy and what fools we mortals be. Brush aside your Shakespeare, and you will find the same in The Great Night." --The Washington Post

"A touching human story of 'mortal sadness'...interweaving stories and situations that are in turn kitsch, camp, wry, and heartbreaking. Adrian balances seemingly incongruous elements to form a profoundly humane and moving work." --The Telegraph (London)

"As moving as it is imaginative...Amid the magical romp, Adrian...manages to grapple with the problems and joys of the most human of emotions: love." --GQ

"Whimsical, very sad, wonderful...At age forty, Adrian ranks among the best novelists of his generation, a moralist of a very high order....He has taken the scaffolding of Shakespeare's play to build a cautionary tale about the dangers lurking in all of us." --The Cleveland Plain Dealer
