This House Will Eat You

House of Leaves book coverOne day a hallway appeared in the Navidson’s living room wall, a hallway that should have extended into the yard, but instead led to unending cold and dark. How could a house be bigger on the inside than it was on the outside? This house is the focus of The Navidson Report as read and footnoted by a tattoo artist named Johnny Truant. There are multiple narrators in Mark Danielewski’s House of Leaves, but Johnny Truant and Zampano, the dead man who wrote The Navidson Report, are the most important. Be ready for a psychologically twisted tale with an unorthodox structure that includes everything from mirror image text to codes and unusual appendices.
