Amelia was one of those people who destroyed everything and called it art.

Paul works as a hotel night guard to make ends meet. Amelia, who studies at the same university, is the young woman who rents Room 313. Everything about her is a mystery: where she goes, who she meets – and where she comes from. The two students become compulsively and inextricably entangled, until one day, Amelia disappears.

Night as It Falls is a novel of high passion and low light, tracing two young lovers who must both come to terms with their inherited bonds and the paths that shape the future.

‘A dark, brooding jewel of a book.’ Irish Times
