A NEIL JORDAN READER
by Neil Jordan (1993)
In the fiction of Neil Jordan, Irish romanticism joins with the sultry fatalism of 1940s film noir to evoke states of desire that are at once spellbinding and treacherous. This volume includes the complete screenplay for the Oscar-nominated film The Crying Game, as well as Night in Tunisia, a stunning collection of stories that won Jordan the prestigious Guardian Fiction Prize, and the novella The Dream of a Beast, in which Jordan locates the terrible ecstasy that accompanies losing one's humanity. Enigmatic, lyrical, feverishly erotic, these works offer not just one but several tour de forces by a writer of incandescent talent.
