Images. Colin Thubron uses the structure of an apartment building and the residents who live separately in some ways and are together in others for his novel titled, Night of Fire. Six tenants and their landlord reveal themselves and their memories as the building in which they sleep burns. Thubron writes with great skill and explores the nature of our stories and the ways in which we know our neighbors and the ways in which we remain strangers. Readers who enjoy finely written literary fiction are those most likely to enjoy this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
