About the Author

Arthur Koestler (1905-1983) was a Hungarian-British author and journalist who immersed himself in the major ideological and social conflicts of his time. In 1931 Koestler joined the Communist Party of Germany until, disillusioned by Stalinism, he resigned in 1938. In 1940 he published his novel Darkness at Noon, an anti-totalitarian work that gained him international fame. Over the course of his life, Koestler espoused many political causes. His novels, reportage, autobiographical works, and political and cultural writings established him as an important commentator on the dilemmas of the twentieth century.

Reviews

"Darkness at Noon still lives as a study of fear and victimhood, of state brutality, of unjust imprisonment, of interrogation and forced confession."-- "The Guardian (UK)"
"What makes Darkness at Noon such an enduring artistic work is Koestler's firsthand knowledge of his source material."-- "Acton Commentary"
"A rare and beautifully executed novel."
-- "New York Herald Tribune"
"Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon was one of the most influential novels of the 20th century, and the 20th century would have been a better century had it been more influential still."--Andrew Stuttaford "Wall Street Journal"
"It is the sort of novel that transcends ordinary limitations...written with such dramatic power, with such warmth of feeling, and with such persuasive simplicity...The magic effect of Darkness at Noon is its magnificent tragic irony."-- "The New York Times Book Review"
"There is nothing stilted about the new Darkness at Noon. It is a seamless, chilling book about the demands ideology makes on truth."--Aatish Taseer "Air Mail"
