Publisher's Summary:
Set in Estonia near the end of the millennium, a eulogy for what humans may destroy. "Things In The Night" is a moving and hilarious hybrid work concerning the author's attempts to write a book on electricity in all its forms - a source of urban heating and lighting, but also a dangerous mysterious force. Anecdotes and digressions crowd his pages, introducing loquacious cannibals, seductive werewolves, witches in limousines and bomb-toting revolutionaries. This novel is as thrilling and unpredictable as lightning itself. It explores a world on the edge of disaster - plagued by mysterious power-outages and threatened by ominous conspiracies - juxtaposed against images and stories of unsurpassed beauty and tenderness.
