Author: Robert Dessaix

'Dessaix writes with great elegance, with passion, compassion and sly wit. Literally, a wonderful book.' John Banville 'An absolutely unique book: intelligent, funny, rich, tender at the right moments, a plum pudding of stories, observations and discoveries.' Alberto Manguel 'Night Letters is exhilarating. The goads, the teasing, the question marks fired up into the atmosphere make any passive reading of it quite impossible.' The Sydney Morning Herald
