Publishers Weekly, 2011-10-10 Originally released in 1990 as a limited edition, this atmospheric and understated novella may not be one of Straub's most original or compelling works, but it does exemplify his supreme ability to transform a relatively pedestrian story line into one of nightmare-inducing terror through imagery, symbolism, and motif. When English professor William Standish is awarded a prestigious three-week fellowship at an English estate with a rich history of legendary literary guests, he all but abandons his pregnant wife for the opportunity to study the obscure works of his grandfather's first wife, poet Isobel Standish. The idyllic manor harbors more than a few sinister secrets, and Standish is soon drawn into its darkness. The unconventional conclusion may leave some horror aficionados less than satisfied, but hardcore Straub fans will applaud the downright creepy revelations at story's end. Agent: David Gernert.
