Hawke, Ethan

A Bright Ray of Darkness is a ferociously intelligent, often hilarious evisceration of fame and celebrity, and a transfixing backstage glimpse into the magic of New York theatre, and it showcases Ethan Hawke's gifts as a novelist as never before.

Hawke's narrator is a young man in torment, disgusted with himself after the collapse of his marriage, still half-hoping for a reconciliation that would allow him to forgive himself and move on as he tries to manage the wreckage of his personal life with whiskey and sex.

What saves him is theatre: in particular, the challenge of performing the role of Hotspur in a production of Henry IV under the leadership of a brilliant director, helmed by one of the most electrifying Falstaffs of all time.

Searing, raw and utterly transfixing, A Bright Ray of Darkness is a novel about shame and beauty and faith and the redemptive power of art.
