Overview

Gillian Brauer, a student at Catamount College during the drug-fueled 1970s, has fallen desperately in love—with poetry, with her charismatic professor Andre Harrow, with his singular sculptor of a wife, with the isolated mansion where the couple live out their anomalous existence, and with the nocturnal activities that take place there. When professor Harrow invites Gillian to his home, though, she hardly suspects she’s about to enter hell. This taut, gripping novel uses the murky poetry of D. H. Lawrence, the most heinous pornography, sexual degradation, totems, and taboos to turn the serene New England countryside into the setting for a terrifying nightmare.

 Gillian Brauer, una estudiante en el Catamount College durante los narcóticos 70, se ha enamorado desesperadamente—de la poesía, del carismático profesor André Harrow, de la singular escultura que éste tiene por esposa, de la apartada mansión donde la pareja ejerce su anomalía y de las misteriosas nocturnidades que allí acontecen. Cuando Harrow invita a Gillian a su hogar, sin embargo, ésta apenas sospecha que está a punto de penetrar en el infierno. Esta novela tensa y apasionante usa la turbia poesía de D. H. Lawrence, la pornografía más abyecta, la degradación sexual, los tótems y los tabúes para transformar la dulce campiña de Nueva Inglaterra en el escenario de un sueño pavoroso.
