About the Author

Roger Scruton is a freelance writer and philosopher, who rescued himself from the academy twenty years ago. He currently lives in rural Wiltshire, England. He has held posts in the American Enterprise Institute, and in the Ethics and Public Policy Center. He is married with two children. He is the author of 40 books, including five works of fiction, and composed two operas. He is widely known on both sides of the Atlantic as a public intellectual with a broadly conservative vision. His acclaimed novel about communist Czechoslovakia, Notes from Underground, was published by Beaufort Books in 2014.

Reviews

Sartre said that fiction should "toss the reader from consciousness to consciousness". This will be the experience of the reader of Souls in the Twilight. In these brilliant and insightful stories Scruton turns the unpeeled gaze of a poet on the worlds he imagines with such psychological penetration. His perfect pitch for inner and outer voices makes his unforgettable, disturbing characters truly present. Souls in the Twilight will reverberate in the mind for a long time -- Raymond Tallis
"In [Scruton's] writings and reflections, elegiac but never despairing, human loss gives away to intimations of transcendence Scruton's multifaceted exploration of what it means to be a relational and responsible person is one of the great philosophical and literary projects of our time." Daniel J. Mahoney, The New Criterion
