The Saturday night ghost club
Toronto : Alfred A. Knopf Canada, 2018. |
Saturday Night Ghost Club is a short, irresistible, and bittersweet coming-of-age story about a small group of kids who, under the leadership of an eccentric uncle, spend one summer investigating the validity of local ghost stories and macabre urban myths--in almost every instance getting in way over their heads. With warmth, skill, and striking, cinematic imagery, and a rare gift for conjuring totally original, unexpected, and unforgettable set pieces and tableaus that strike the reader as immediately iconic--Davidson draws us into his gritty world, reminding us that life's strange intensity and occasional magic is all around us.
