William Giraldi…a spare masterwork of dystopian fiction, a fevered prose poem of society strangled by nefarious rule…Ball…is sure of hand, unafraid of night and, as with Orwell in 1984, not satisfied with the quasi-redemptive climaxes congenial to some dystopian fiction. The Curfew forces you into a corner and confronts you with the necessary inquiries: What do you envision for our eventual end? What ominous forces lurk at the hub of our humanity? What monsters are we? Jesse Ball is a worthy Virgil through this inferno of our own design.
