Night: A Novel

Research Project

Night is a haunting work of speculative fiction. A man and a woman have been ejected away from the Earth, beginning a mission to colonise a Mirror Earth. In the claustrophobic environment of their spacecraft, haunted by an old poem remembered from their schooling, their rational understanding of themselves and of their mission begins to give way.

This project continues Takolander’s investigation of creativity and embodiment, and of the emotional and poetic depths of human functioning.
