Product description

Mark Z. Danielewski's masterpiece, "La casa de hojas," consists of two parallel stories. One is of Johnny Truant and his frenetic existence in Los Angeles at the beginning of the 1990s. The second begins when Truant finds a manuscript in the house of an old man who has just died. This manuscript tells the story of a married couple who move to a house in the country. This upper-middle-class North American family soon makes a terrifying discovery: their new house is bigger on the inside than on the outside. This finding unleashes a series of events in which family unity and harmony are brought under the spell of this nightmare architecture.

Review quote

"This demonically brilliant book is impossible to ignore, put down, or persuasively conclude reading. In fact, when you purchase your copy you may reach a certain page and find me there, reduced in size like Vincent Price in "The Fly", still trapped in the web of its malicious, beautiful pages." --Jonathan Lethem, author, "Motherless Brooklyn", on the English-language edition
