Resumen del libro

Richard Garay lives alone with his mother, hiding his sexuality from her and from those around him. Stifled by a job he despises, he finds himself willing to take considerable risks. Set in Argentina in a time of great change, "The Story of the Night" is a powerful and moving novel about a man who, as the Falklands War is fought and lost, finds his own way to emerge into the world.""The Story of the Night" is, in the end, a love story of the most serious and difficult kind. Toibin has told it with profound artistry and truth." - Tobias Wolff. "Nobody before Toibin has made such honesty stand so clearly for political and personal integrity...In each of his first three novels, he has invented a strong central character, but Garay is by far his most memorable" - Edmund White, "Sunday Times". "A remarkable achievement...The ease, the fluidity, the economy, the precision of Toibin's masterly prose make this novel sheer pleasure to read" - Norman Thomas di Giovanni, "The Times".
