    Love from beyond 'The Great Night'

    With unabashed, Victorian prose, Lawrence Quirk spins an emotionally arresting tale of love from beyond the grave. Tom Lanning is a Boston Brahmian aristocrat who searches to his untimely death for that special someone. Many years later, while researching his family tree, the narrator 'Robert' comes across a picture of the long-dead youth in a Boston library. He is immediately mesmerized by the young man's beauty 'Lanning dies in 1893 at the age of 23 from complications of a crude appendix operation.' Robert begins a loving and obsessive journey into finding out all he can about Lanning, oddly drawn in by an unnamed, somewhat veiled, mystic familiarity to the youth. Mr Quirk weaves his story through testaments and journals written by those who surround Lanning's privileged and socially insular life. As he delves further into Lanning's past intimacies, he uproots his own morose existance in Lynn, Massachusetts, moving into the Lanning home in Boston 'now a rooming house and desolate memory of its glorious past.' The deft narrative detailing the decline of the Beacon Hill residence is rendered such that one gets an errie feeling it is the four walls themselves that ruminate their own disconsolate ruination, telling any and all of us who will listen. With his obsessive search culminating, Robert realizes 'by events played out during Lanning's life, coupled with his own innate sense that they are somehow intrinsically and spiritually joined' perhaps there is more than a passing parallel between himself and the youth from long ago. The possibility that love transcends time and space is truly a romantic vehicle.
