“Robin Winter’s portrait of a world unraveling into chaos is equal parts harrowing and elegant, a master work of fiction. Reminiscent of Denis Johnson’s Tree Of Smoke, and more than comparable, her novel is quite astonishing.” —Monte Schulz author of The Big Town

“Set in the mid-1960s, at a flashpoint in Nigeria’s volatile new post-colonial history, Night Must Wait is a riveting novel of bravery and danger, friendship and betrayal. Four young, white American women have come to this land of opportunity to find their separate futures. What they find is civil war at the national and personal levels. Robin Winter’s spellbinding story is taut with surprise.” —John M. Daniel, author of Behind the Redwood Door

“Four women’s lives interweave in a complex, compelling narrative. Deep, insightful characterization, rendered in elegant prose. A strong sense of place. The heat and the horror of war comes through in every line. The sweep of the cultural landscape is overpowering.” —John Reed, author of Thirteen Mountain

Night Must Wait is a knockout. Robin Winter really delivers the goods with her twisting tale of four ambitious women, good intentions gone awry, and civil war in Nigeria.” —Norb Vonnegut, author of The Trust

Night Must Wait is a novel of beauty and brutality as complex as the history of Nigeria and as subtle and passionate as the characters who inhabit this powerful work.” —Jervey Tervalon, author of Understand This

“The world Robin Winter takes us to in Night Must Wait is not the fantasy of Dorothy and Toto, no longer in Kansas; it is the scary, all too-real Africa. The women pushing the story forward are light years beyond Dorothy, facing down personal and political demons of the twenty-first century.” —Shelly Lowenkopf author of The Fiction Writers’ Handbook
