A novel about survival, self-reliance, and art, by Peter Stamm, finalist for the 2013 Man Booker International Prize

All Days Are Night is the story of Gillian, a successful and beautiful TV host, content with her marriage to Matthias, even if she feels restless at times. One night following an argument, the couple has a terrible car accident: Matthias, who is drunk, hits a deer on the wet road and dies in the crash. Gillian wakes up in the hospital completely disfigured. Only slowly, after many twists and turns, does she put her life back together, and reconnects with a love interest of the past who becomes a possible future--or so it seems. In Stamm's unadorned and haunting style, this new novel forcefully tells the story of a woman who loses her life but must stay alive all the same. How she works everything out in the end is at once surprising and incredibly rewarding.

Gillian is in a car accident in which her husband is killed and she is terribly disfigured. She hides from society as she has surgeries that bring her face back to a new normal. She reconnects with a man from her past who is having his own struggles. Good book.
