"An enthralling anthropology of the shadow realms." -- John Leonard - Harper's
"Absorbing...fascinating...[Ekirch] has plundered an extraordinary range of cross-cultural sources for his material, and he tells us about everything from witches to firefighting, architecture to domestic violence...[A] monumental study." -- Terry Eagleton - The Nation
"This is an irresistibly fascinating book. It has a hypnotic, feverish pace that will have its readers up all night wondering, expectant." -- Ken Burns
"Perfect reading for insomniacs and star-gazers alike." -- Jonathan Spence, Sterling Professor of History, Yale University
"An absorbing social history...A wonderful revelation of a vanished age of darkness." -- Raymond Carr - The Spectator
"Engrossing...Ekirch's narrative is rooted in the material realities of the past, evoking a bygone world of extreme physicality and pre-industrial survival stratagems." -- Publishers Weekly
