A boy lies in a coma in Utah, brought home from Israel after a near-death motorcycle accident. A child who escaped certain death in Poland in 1941 swims with manatees in Florida many years later on holiday with her dying partner. An obsessive FBI agent spends twenty years tracking a legendary Sixties-era radical. A veterinarian from Massachusetts attempts to simplify her life by going to live on a kibbutz by the Dead Sea, where she falls in love with the boy on a motorcycle...

These are just some of the people whose lives collide in Frederick Reiken's vivid and brilliant exploration of our struggle to understand what the word 'truth' might really mean. DAY FOR NIGHT becomes an extraordinary journey to a post-War netherworld of wonders and strange attractions, of tales miraculous and terrible, where death has a colour and beauty blooms in the darkness.
