The Fall of Light
by : Sarah Laing
An excitingly contemporary and innovative blend of a beautifully written novel with graphics. Rudy is a successful architect, but life is not as happy as it should be. His work leaves him artistically frustrated, his wife and two young daughters have moved out of the house he designed for them, and his pushy young associate is planning a take-over of the business. When a motorbike accident puts him into hospital and forces him to recuperate at home, he looks in danger of losing everything, but it is then that his repressed artistic yearnings start to make their presence felt, not just in the glass creations he begins to make, but in his dreams, interspersing the text of the novel with graphic images.
