    Originally published in 1936, "Nightwood" is a haunting tale of sexual obsession. Robin Vote -- the woman at the heart of this strange and richly atmospheric novel -- is a woman whose passions are strong enough to destroy. The novel circles and spirals as, first, Nora's husband, and then, Nora and Jenny, her lovers, are consumed by her insatiable hunger for human contact.

first of all the book is in itself a timeless masterpiece,but this edition goes further and points at the orginal genesis of the novel,and second,the book is in great condition and is a true marvel to own.

A great sleep aid

by ferrylund on Aug 1, 2008

I bought this book because it was on my list of lists. A guide I use to give myself a little more focus in my hunt for good literature. It is a tiny book that had received some great praise. Don?t you believe it! This book is horrific, unless of course you need a sleep aid. Even the slow paced detailed writing of James Fenimore Cooper could keep me awake, but not Nightwood. In the years that I have had this book, and attempted on many occasions to read, I have made it only to page 25, in a book that has approximately 60-70 pages.. And that was after rereading page after page because after a paragraph or two I?d start falling asleep. I thought it was just me, until I asked my older brother, who reads everything, cereal boxes, owners manuals etc. He couldn?t read it either. Same problem, it puts him to sleep. It wasn't that it was hard to follow, it is just dull. I have admitted defeat. Hopefully you will heed my words and not have to do the same.
