Description
The New York Times bestseller by the author of The Bone Clocks and Cloud Atlas | Named One of the Best Books of the Year by The Guardian Keep your eyes peeled for a small black iron door. Down the road from a working-class British pub, along the brick wall of a narrow alley, if the conditions are exactly right, you'll find the entrance to Slade House. A stranger will greet you by name and invite you inside. At first, you won't want to leave. Later, you'll find that you can't. Every nine years, the house's residents--an odd brother and sister--extend a unique invitation to someone who's different or lonely: a precocious teenager, a recently divorced policeman, a shy college student. But what really goes on inside Slade House? For those who find out, it's already too late. . . . Spanning five decades, from the last days of the 1970s to the present, leaping genres, and barreling toward an astonishing conclusion, this intricately woven novel will pull you into a reality-warping new vision of the haunted house story--as only David Mitchell could imagine it. Praise for Slade House "Devilishly fun." -- The Washington Post "Entertainingly eerie . . . Slade House boils down to Mitchell's take on the classic ghost story, complete with his version of a haunted house. . . . The last thing we expected from Mitchell is simplicity, but here it is, burnished to a hellish bronze." -- Chicago Tribune "A ripping yarn . . . Like Shirley Jackson's Hill House or the Overlook Hotel from Stephen King's The Shining, [Slade House] is a thin sliver of hell designed to entrap the unwary. . . . As the Mitchellverse grows ever more expansive and connected, this short but powerful novel hints at still more marvels to come." -- San Francisco Chronicle "Like Stephen King in a fever . . . manically ingenious." -- The Guardian (U.K.) " Slade House, the tricky new confection by David Mitchell, is a haunted house story that savors of Dickens, Stephen King, J. K. Rowling and H. P. Lovecraft, but possesses more psychic voltage than any of them." -- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Tightly crafted and suspenseful yet warmly human, Slade House is the ultimate spooky nursery tale for adults." -- The Huffington Post "Diabolically entertaining . . . dark, thrilling, and fun . . . a thoroughly entertaining ride full of mind games, unexpected twists, and even a few laughs." -- The Daily Beast "Plants died, milk curdled, and my children went slightly feral as I succumbed to the creepy magic of David Mitchell's  Slade House . It's a wildly inventive, chilling, and--for all its otherworldliness--wonderfully human haunted house story. I plan to return to its clutches quite often." --Gillian Flynn, #1  New York Times  bestselling author of  Gone Girl  and  The Grownup   "I gulped down this novel in a single evening. Painstakingly imagined and crackling with narrative velocity, it's a Dracula for the new millennium, a Hansel and Gretel for grownups, a reminder of how much fun fiction can be." --Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See, winner of the Pulitzer Prize "David Mitchell doesn't break rules so much as he proves them to be inhibitors to lively intelligent fiction." --#1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz
