The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore
A historical novel about the first days of electric light. Doesn’t sound all that riveting? You’ll be surprised. The story of the rivalry between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse – told from the perspective of Westinghouse’s young, ambitious lawyer – is truly fascinating. Other characters include the strange inventor Nikola Tesla and the mysterious actress Agnes Huntington. Graham Moore kept me turning pages with multi-layered characters, lively dialogue, and unexpected twists and turns.
