Krishna Nair’s stirring first novel, Against The Night is the story of how a young woman, Sarah George, holds out against the night of darkness that is enveloping her. In the last stages of cancer, Sarah is confronted with the darkness of knowing that the love of her life, Ram Mohan, has lost his memory in an accident and is now living with another woman, who claims to be his wife. Ram experiences an absence of emotion even while he is in the conniving Aswathy’s care. He has no recollection of his romance with Sarah at the Craft Coffee House, and no memory of ‘The Writer’s Craft’, the magazine company he runs. Crafted with care and sensitivity, the story gathers momentum akin to the Kathakali performance the young ‘star-crossed lovers’ witnessed together. This is a book you will not be able to put down until the very last word.
