Culture Street

By Sophia Whitfield

A debut novel from a talented young writer. Dinerstein’s lyrical prose beautifully sets the scene in Norway as a place of contemplation and redemption.

Yasha and Frances meet in an artist colony in the north of Norway as they take refuge from their life in New York. Frances is escaping her parents who have just announced their separation. Together with the stress of her parents split she must also deal with their outrage at her sister’s unsuitable upcoming wedding. With no home to return to, Frances makes her way to Norway uncertain of what life holds.

Yasha arrives at the colony on a mission to bury his father according to his wishes at the ‘top of the world’. Having grown up assisting his father in his bakery in Brooklyn, Yasha is now faced with the enormity of his loss and the appearance of his estranged mother.

Through the process of grief Yasha discovers his own independence in an isolated community. Frances is drawn towards Yasha as he rallies himself from the depths of grief.

Set to a stunning backdrop, The Sunlit Night is a staggering debut about finding love through loss.
