Let’s Kill Uncle

A cult classic, this excitingly original 1963 novel by Rohan O’Grady (a pseudonym for Canadian June Margaret O’Grady), was made into a Hollywood horror film by William Castle in 1966, and was more recently the subject of a startlingly seductive appreciation in The Believer. It’s a young, orphaned heir who turns the tables on the uncle who is trying to kill him, and it is uncategorizably comical, engrossing, and disturbing. A real rare gem.
