One year following their deaths in a late-night car accident, teenagers Danielle, Marco, and Christopher return, in spirit, to the sleepy New England suburb of Avon. Over the course of the evening, the three will drift into and out of the lives of those who knew and were affected by them. None is more affected than Tim, survivor of the crash, who plots a grisly act of remembrance, and Brooks, the well-intentioned police officer who first discovered the crash and whose life has changed in startling ways since.

Praise for The Night Country

"I think that if you haven't read Stewart O'Nan . . . you have some catching up to do."
--Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
"With one foot in the genre of horror-supernatural and the other in literary fiction, this book defies classification."
--Brian Richard Boylan, San Francisco Chronicle
"Chilling...By juxtaposing the angst of teenage years with the hoarier dread of middle age, O'Nan has put his finger on how frightening and swift is the hand of fate."
--John Freeman, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Stewart O'Nan is a literary ventriloquist. Each of his novels is is so different that he seems capable of doing anything he chooses."
--Dan Cryer, Newsday
