While Sheri Holman was still in the early stages of outlining The Witches on The Road Tonight, she described it to a bn.com interviewer as "a new novel about the ways we pass along fear." Apparently, that fear is multigenerational bequest: Eddie Alley's mother earns unwelcome fame as a practicing Appalachian witch. To distance himself from her notoriety, Eddie moved to New York City, becoming "Captain Casket," an outlandish TV horror-movie presenter who attracts a cult audience. That kitschy parody, however, doesn't get our hero off the hook. His adolescent daughter begins to feel her own ghostly yearnings and other disturbing things begin to rustle in the night winds. Sheri Holman has composed a novel worthy of comparison to her word-of-mouth favorite The Dress Lodger. Editor's recommendation.
