I looked at Incidents in the Night: Volume 1 from afar and thought I liked what I saw. The book smiled at me, and I think it might have winked, too. But that might just have been the lighting in this dark place. I made my way closer, slowly, asking a few of my friends what they thought of it.

When David B. goes on a quest to find a copy of “Incidents in the Night,” he finds himself in a bookshop filled with mountains of books.
