"Set in 2018, on the eve of Brexit, the novel offers a play of light and dark figures as it moves from the art of filmmaking to Benjamin's sense of stateless and impending doom, which finds an echo in Richard and Joanna's foreboding about their marriage and the consequences of Brexit. A captivating mix of angst and wry humor." -- Library Journal
"McNeil's writing is spare and lush at the same time ... the book invites us to look at our darkness and how we can channel it into something that at least mimics lightness to the world watching." -- Quill & Quire, starred
"Evocatively written ... Taking its title from a cinematic technique in which night scenes can be filmed during daylight, the novel is also acute in its descriptions of films and filmmaking, capturing the intensity and strange intimacy of film shoots." -- Winnipeg Free Press
"Day For Night hooked me from its first gorgeous lines, striking evocative prose, marvellous sentences that swept me along much in the way of Virginia Woolf's Street Haunting ... It's a rich and satisfying project." -- Pickle Me This blog
"In Day for Night, Jean McNeil has written another in a series of powerful novels, one that draws the reader into a world that is at once familiar but rapidly becoming unrecognizable." -- Miramichi Reader
