A Hitchcock-Inspired Novel

Debut novel contemplates love, violence, cinema and the passage of time in Bakersfield, California

En español | What You See in the Dark, Chicano writer Manuel Muñoz’s first novel after two short story collections, is a performance in literary night vision set in his hometown of Bakersfield, California, in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Drawing on tremendous empathy and an exacting eye for detail, Muñoz conjures up a vanished era in which the people nevertheless feel indelibly real. Through a small cast of characters, he gives the reader an intimate look into dark places both literal and metaphorical: the anticipatory dimness in a movie theater, the well of regret inside a devastated older woman, a late-night murder in a shadowy stairwell.
