The Sunlight Dialogues

The Sunlight Dialogues

Author(s): John Gardner

Location(s): New York State, Batavia

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 1972

An absolutely wild novel set in the tiny upstate town of Batavia (where author John Gardner spent his life), The Sunlight Dialogues consists of the community’s reaction to the mysterious “Sunlight Man,” who is charged with having graffitied the word LOVE across traffic lanes and winds up suspected of murder. As a portrait of American prejudice, it resembles The Scarlet Letter but goes even further in its cross-section of small-town life.
