The Night Climbers Summary

The Night Climbers by Ivo Stourton

James, a first-year student at Cambridge, is overwhelmed by the thrill of opportunity and startled by his own hunger for friendship. He finds himself seduced by a covert and exclusive circle of friends - the 'Tudor Night Climbers' - who scale the university's turrets after dark, transforming it into a dangerous playground of spiralling heights.
When still only a novice member of his tribe, James begins to fall for the only female in the group, the enigmatic and beautiful Jessica, and is soon at the heart of a fatal love triangle with the reckless and charismatic leader of the group, Francis. When a volatile relationship finally explodes, the Night Climbers' funding suddenly dries up, until Francis dreams up a heist that will secure them millions, but will also test their very souls.

Partly inspired by the original 'Night Climbers' of the Sixties who famously made dare-devil leaps from college roofs, this passionate exploration of youth at its most vital and unstable marks the debut of a strikingly gifted new writer.

The Night Climbers Reviews

Lapped up The Secret History? Then this one's for you . . . Stourton can really write . . . his next move will certainly be worth watching. * Independent on Sunday *
An amazingly accomplished debut . . . the writing is elegant, the story decadent. * Observer *
I love this book. So exhilarating, authentic and vivid. It made me want to become a Cambridge student all over again. * Nicholas Coleridge *
Tightly sprung and compulsively readable * Literary Review *
Stourton is a storyteller with perfect poise * Spectator *
