Abstract

By focusing on Tabish Khair’s latest literary endeavour, a short novel entitled Night of Happiness (2018), this paper sets out to investigate what, in the writer’s opinion, is the root of most problems affecting human relationships and society as a whole: our unwillingness to embrace the unexpected complexity of reality, reassuringly misperceived through the filter of one’s misconceptions.
