Nightwood

Author(s): Djuna Barnes

Location(s): Paris

Genre(s): Historical, Fiction

Era(s): Early 20th Century

Lose yourself in the tortured love lives of expats in 1920s Paris in this iconic cult classic.

Nightwood tells the stories of the love-lives of a group of American expats and Europeans in Paris in the 1920s – an exotic, night-time underworld, eccentric, seedy and beautiful. A modernist masterpiece, and one of the earliest novels to explicitly portray homosexuality, the influence of Djuna Barnes’s novel remains exceptional.
