Product description


Praise for Mormama

"Some horror novels, though, feel timeless whenever you happen to read them, and Kit Reed's wondrous new ghost story Mormama seem to me one of those." --New York Times Book Review

"William Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County by way of Mervyn Peake's 'Gormenghast.'"--The Wall Street Journal

"It's a smart and chilling tale on par with the best of Shirley Jackson, by an author who helped define the American Gothic."--The Village Voice

"The power of Reed's [Mormama] comes from the layering of a chorus of voices...mirrored and reinforced by a social environment that runs on a toxic mix of privilege, public refinement, and propriety that conceals private selfishness and cruelty.... Ghosts are scary, but that kind of bottomless, banal egotism shrivels and kills the soul. Or worse, preserves it." --Locus

"In true southern gothic style, this tale is as much a ghost story as it is an allegory for the crumbling ways of the Old South." --Booklist

"A coherent and entertaining narrative tapestry with an oppressive sense of supernatural threat, psychological intrigue and spiritual despair." --The Morning Star

"Unflaggingly smart, inventive, and weirdly, brusquely funny." --Peter Straub

"A harrowing supernatural Southern gothic--completely convincing, and scary in all sorts of ways." --Tim Powers, author of Hide Me Among the Graves

"Fitting on the horror scale somewhere between Shirley Jackson and John Farris, this tale of generational hauntings and family secrets, with an amnesiac filling in as Greek chorus, is one of the best predatory house tales I've come across in many years." --Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award

"Through a chorus of living and dead voices, all of which know something but none of which know everything Mormama offers the story of a family trauma that has come to infect a place. A terrific story that keeps you
on your toes to the very end."--Brian Evenson, author, The Open Curtain
