Summary (From the publisher):

Thunder and Light is the much-anticipated second book in Marie-Claire Blais's spectacular and ambitious trilogy chronicling the mood of our apocalyptic age. It is the sequel to These Festive Nights.

Forged in a language that is free, rolicking, and evocative, Thunder and Light creates a powerful microcosm in which the extremes and the contradictions that animate our times are reconciled. It reunites us with many of the characters from the first book -- Renata, Carlos, Samuel, Mélanie, Mère, Daniel, Mama, Vénus -- as well as a fresh cast: Jessica, a young pilot sacrificed for her parents' ambitions; the Blessed Bag Lady, who lives among the Manhattan skyscrapers and, like a modern-day Joan of Arc, follows the voices she hears in her head; and Caroline and Jean-Mathieu, aging artists fighting against the forces attempting to separate them.
