The Lighted Window reviewed in the Dublin Review of Books

After The Last of the Light, published in 2015, comes The Lighted Window, following a natural progression. Peter Davidson’s preoccupation with evening and nightfall, with the long twilights of the northern summer and the intensely freighted darkness of midwinter, continues apace. He is a connoisseur of the crepuscular, the in-between zone dividing night and day, and all its electrifying implications. He is drawn to strangeness and obscurity, in art, in literature, in known places and in reflective moods.
