Bandy Dorner, home from Vietnam, awakes with his car mired in a canal, his cabin reduced to ashes, and his pregnant wife preparing to leave town with her lover. Within moments, a cop lies bleeding on the road. Eighteen years later, Bandy is released from prison. His parents are gone, but on the derelict family ranch, Bandy faces a different reunion. Tracy, his now teenaged son, has come to claim the father he's never known. Hot on his heels is his mum and Bandy's ex-wife. All three are damaged, hardened, haunted. But warily, desperately, they move in a slow dance around each other, trying to piece back together a family that never was; trying to discover if they belong together at all.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Brian Hart's Then Came the Evening shows the hidden America, a world of remote holdings, long memories, fierce yearnings, and violent strivings. He dramatises this world with an immense care and tenderness. There is a deep feeling in the book for the gnarled landscape itself, its stark beauty, but even greater emotion surrounds the characters that inhabit it. Their efforts to live together and love each other are depicted with a grace and understanding which is rare and memorable' * Colm Toibin *
`An edgy and affecting debut from a writer already bursting with promise and achievement. Brian Hart's narrative voice is as tender as it is unflinching - and his novel of love squandered and oh-so-nearly retrieved is a triumph' * Jim Crace *
`A startling evocation of a wild place in which every man and woman struggle on in their own private Idaho' * Daily Telegraph *
`Told with a stark narrative voice that reflects the harsh unforgiving subject, the comparisons to Cormac McCarthy are already coming thick and fast' * GQ *
