Overview

From the acclaimed author of A Short History of a Small Place and Seaworthy comes a wholesale departure -- a comic/horror/romance/fantasy infested with both unsavory American politicians and venomous Venetian lizards. Awash in Pearson's singular wit, Red Scare tells the headlong story of a public school biology teacher and a National Gallery curator who join forces to thwart the dire consequences of a medieval Italian curse. This novel, though slender, is packed to overflowing with priapic senators, clueless teenagers, dubious art history, clumsy quasi-romantic repartee, garish worldwide bloodletting, corrosive humor, and enough malicious scuttling reptiles to keep you from ever planting your bare feet on a darkened floor again.

We're pleased to offer Red Scare at a special thanks-for-your-ongoing-support price.

Editorial Reviews

John Grisham
T. R. Pearson enchants us with his unique voice and rich language. He is my favorite author.
Jonathan Yardley
The world T.R. Pearson is constructing just gets larger and larger. The pleasures of entering it are irresistible.
Reynolds Price
T.R. Pearson writes with the furious dedication of ants tatting lace. And the finished product is a wonder to behold -- funny and awful, beautiful and true, like nothing else you ever came near.
