    DescriptionThere's nothing moving outside. No cars. No buses. No people. No birds. Nothing. No one. Anywhere. An ordinary man wakes up on an ordinary day to find that he's the only living creature in the entire city. The radio and TV are suddenly filled with white noise, there's no newspaper, the Internet is down and no one's answering the phone. Jonas is the last living being on the planet. What happened? How? Why? And why is he still here? Thriller and philosophical investigation wrapped up in an intensely compelling, eerie mystery, "Night Work" is compulsive and exhilarating - but don't read it when you're all alone...

    Review quote
    "* 'Glavinic's masterpiece... A wondrous, big novel about the self and others, about fear and courage, about the fragility of the everyday, which only seems to wrap itself around us so firmly, and about the uncertain border between waking and dreaming.' - Daniel Kehlmann, Der Spiegel * 'Glavinic has created a gripping mystery - a book that leaves its readers disturbed yet happy, and full of questions.' - Focus * 'One of the most thrilling novels of the year... a fantastic tale about the fragility of the individual.' - Nurnberger Zeitung"
