The Stars at Noon Overview

The Stars at Noon, by Denis Johnson, is the story of an unnamed female narrator who finds herself caught up in a complicated international situation that is part trade war, part political game, and part morality play. She tries to help a righteous ex-businessman with whom she has accidentally fallen in love. As it describes the attempts of the narrator and the businessman to make their way to freedom from persecution, the text also considers and dramatizes themes involving the tension between opposing moralities, fear, and suffering.
