„Erwarte das Unheimliche!“

von: Manafonistas Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off


The man behind The Mountain Goats is a rising star in the literary fiction world, and with very good reason. Darnielle’s marvelously unsettling Wolf in White Van (about a reclusive and severely disfigured video game designer) and Universal Harvester (about a 90s Iowa video store clerk who discovers that someone has been modifying the VHS tapes …) were both critically acclaimed and nominated for major awards.

His new novel, the deliciously titled Devil House, is the story of a once-successful true-crime writer who moves into a California house where a pair of murders took place during the “Satanic Panic” of the 1980s.

Expect the Unheimlich. The book will be released at the end of January, 416 pages. Let me know if anyone wants to start a parallel reading adventure. Starting in February.
