A novel in dramatic form – set to become a film staring Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson.

A startling encounter on a New York subway platform leads two strangers to a run-down tenement where a life-or-death decision must be made.

In that small apartment, ?Black' and ?White', as the two men are known, begin a conversation that leads each back through his own history – mining the origins of two diametrically opposing world views, they begin a dialectic redolent of the best of Beckett.

Information
A novel in dramatic form – set to become a film staring Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson.

A startling encounter on a New York subway platform leads two strangers to a run-down tenement where a life-or-death decision must be made.

In that small apartment, ?Black' and ?White', as the two men are known, begin a conversation that leads each back through his own history – mining the origins of two diametrically opposing world views, they begin a dialectic redolent of the best of Beckett.

White is a professor whose seemingly enviable existence of relative ease has left him nonetheless in despair. Black, an ex-con and ex-addict, is the more hopeful of the men – though he is just as desperate to convince White of the power of faith as White is to deny it.

Their aim is no less than this: to discover the meaning of life.

Deft, spare, and full of artful tension, The Sunset Limited is a beautifully crafted, consistently thought-provoking, and deeply intimate work by one of the most insightful writers of our time.
