The Foxes Come at Night
Set in the cities and islands of the Mediterranean, the eight stories in The Foxes Come at Night read more like a novel, a meditation on memory, life and death.
Their protagonists collect and reconstruct fragments of lives lived intensely, and now lost, crystallized in memory or in the detail of a photograph. And yet the one of these stories is far from pessimistic; death, it seems, s nothing to be afraid of.
Noteboom is a superb stylist who observes the world with a combination of melancholy and astonishment. These stories are textured with humour, pathos and vast knowledge, the hallmarks of this outstanding and highly respected European writer.
