The Great Night, Paperback


On Midsummer's Eve three heartsick lovers are trapped in San Francisco's Buena Vista Park.

Ill met by moonlight, they are stalked by a psychopathic Puck, in thrall to a beautiful Titania, and ambushed by a homeless musical theatre troupe.

Together they must survive a night that might just repair their hearts, if it doesn't destroy them first. Selected by the New Yorker as one of the best young writers in America, Adrian has created a singularly playful, moving and humorous novel - a story that effortlessly crosses the borders between reality and dreams, suffering and magic, and mortality and immortality.
