capacious language--always curious
often stunning--for the states of
mystery and wonder at its core."
--Leslie Jamison, author of
The Empathy Exams
"... a memoir about the nighttime
world and connections between Mutch's own experience
and the solitude of polar explorers."
"Mutch's prose is electric..." "... a beautiful, singular book."
"You'll be rewarded with the sense that the self
is a miraculous catastrophe...
...[Know the Night is] riveting, breathtaking..."

the night with their child or their fragile self,
there is company here."
