Trafika Europe 2 - Polish Nocturne

All Days are Night (excerpt)

Peter Stamm

Born in Scherzingen, Switzerland in 1963, Peter Stamm has had several life stages, as an accountant, psychiatric intern, journalist and author. He has written six acclaimed novels, and also writes for radio and theatre. An editor of the Swiss literary quarterly, Entwürfe für Literatur , he currently lives in Winterthur.

"Everything Peter Stamm turns his hand to is highly disturbing, acutely perceptive, and unfathomably gripping, and [this] is no exception. In sentences that are plain and surgical, in prose that has about it a disquieting stillness, he dissects our fractured lives. A masterpiece of disorientation and control, All Days Are Night may be his best novel yet."
