Book Description

Overlook continues its reissues of the incomparable Jim Nisbet¹s oeuvre with Dark Companion. Nisbet, the acclaimed noir writer from San Francisco captures the absurdities of present-day America with a rare pungency in this noir gem. Banerjhee Rolf, a bright, levelheaded Indian-American scientist, is content to spend his days with his wife, tending his garden and studying his beloved astronomy. When Rolf ¹s relationship with his seedy, drug-dealing neighbor, Toby Pride, and Pride¹s stoner girlfriend takes a weird turn, Rolf¹s placid world is shattered and he becomes a fugitive from justice. Crime, cosmology, politics, philosophy, physics and more enter into this cautionary tale, which climaxes with the suddenness of a cobra strike and then delivers a denouement that¹s both stunning and absolutely perfect.
