The two nameless narrators of "Inside the Night" roam back and forth in time, veering from childhood mischief to a Palestinian refugee camp massacre; from ardent first love to migration to an oil-rich Arab country; from spirited adolescent fantasies to the grim reality of life. With interwoven tales and strange destinies, Ibrahim Nasrallah's novel carves the history of a people over half a century into poetic and richly evocative fragments.
