In 1984, in the palm grove in Sydney’s Botanic Gardens, the New Zealand artist Colin McCahon went missing. He was found by police early next morning in Centennial Park, kilometres away, with no memory of who he was or where he had been. In Dark Night, Martin Edmond walks in McCahon’s footsteps, past pubs and monuments, art galleries and churches, barracks and parks: to accompany him some way into the darkness of his end. Martin Edmond is a New Zealand writer who has lived in Sydney (Summer Hill) for many years.
