Title of the Week

A Devil Comes to Town
by Paolo Maurensig

"This gothic literary parable provides an engaging--if subtle--commentary on narcissism, conceit, and the desire for escapism and creation that dwells within us all. The unconventional structure, creepily overcast atmosphere, and stylistically complex writing shines an austere yet subdued light on the wonders of human imagination and how the limits of escapism, once surpassed, assume a form of weakness all their own."
