Product description

Book Description

Darke Matter is a brilliant, mordant examination of the nature and obligations of love. Both immensely sad and extremely funny, the story wrestles with one of the great moral issues of our time. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"A supreme example of a natural and gifted storyteller."----Colm Toibin

"A wondrous book with two fathers, Kingsley Amis and Dante."----Sebastian Barry

", witty, poignant and unexpectedly tender."----Robert Gray, Shelf Awareness

"An original and bleakly funny portrait of grief."----Economist

"An unexpectedly moving and dynamic portrait of a difficult, broken man."----Booklist

"This is a tough-minded and bracing novel about life's final moments... A page-turning portrait of the most difficult character you'll be glad to claim as a friend."----Library Journal (starred)

Aside from his memories, the bulk of the novel comprises Darke's trenchant observations about life and death, education, analysis, and such pillars of literature as T.S. Eliot and William Butler Yeats.----Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the paperback edition.
