Introduction

Night Lights is about a young woman who has just married a man 20 years her senior. Together with his daughter from a previous marriage, she tries to accustom herself to the fact that she is now a wife and a mother. She rationalizes this with the love she has for her husband; they have known each other for a long time, even since he was still married to his first wife, and she has always felt the most comfortable around him. At a dinner party, however, things begin to change. A minor incident causes her husband to get angry with her, and she realizes that despite the long trust and comfort they have had with each other, they hardly know each other at all. Everything that she knows and took for granted is actually fragile, and this truth scares her. At night, she falls asleep angry and confused. She dreams of a boy she met at the party earlier, or is she merely part of the boy’s dreams – they never know. The two meet in their dreams and fall in love immediately. Free from the cares and mores of the real world, they spend a night of romance and wonder together. The only two conscious in a sleeping world, the city becomes their own, their private playground and haven. But soon they realize, that in the morning they must wake…
