Djuna Barnes

20th century American journalist, novelist and Modernist writer

One of the greatest books of the twentieth century.

—William S. Burroughs

Nightwood is itself. It is its own created world, exotic and strange, and reading it is like drinking wine with a pearl dissolving in the glass. You have taken in more than you know, and it will go on doing its work. From now on, a part of you is pearl-lined.

—Jeanette Winterson

A novel of extraordinary and appalling force, a study of moral degeneration recited in a rhetoric so intensely wrought, so violent and so artificial, that it… became a kind of symbol of sinister magnificence.
