Comes the Night Summary


Comes the Night by Hollis Hampton-Jones

Meade is nineteen and living in Paris with her twin brother, Ben Ho, far from their privileged upbringing in Nashville, Tennessee. Hers is a restless quest of balancing addictions: to her brother, her pills and her purging. But when Ben Ho falls for a girl at art school, Meade's precarious equilibrium is shaken.

Meade descends into a vortex of glamour and passion with the fashion photographer who becomes her lover. As her sexual obsession shifts from her brother to her troubled Iranian lover, Meade cannot know she has made a tragic match with someone whose secrets go further, deeper and darker than anything she can fathom.

A stark, unflinching novel with a dark heart, Comes the Night chronicles a fevered and tormented journey through the frothy, glossy world of fashion and the shadowy recesses of love.
