Day for Night - Frederick Reiken

By now, you are probably familiar with novels in the form of linked stories (Colum McCann’s Let the Great World Spin, Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge), but few are as eerie or as mesmerizing as Frederick Reiken’s Day For Night (Back Bay, $14.99). Each chapter is a haunting experiment in structure and voice, featuring characters who are grappling with a past mystery or trauma, whether personal (a parent lost to cancer) or historical (the murder of 500 Jewish men in Lithuania in 1941). And while every strand of the narrative connects to a larger whole, the deep reward of Reiken’s novel is that each segment contains a universe within itself.
