Fiction at Literati: Josh Malerman



Literati hosts Royal Oak based Josh Malerman, in support of his debut, Bird Box. 

Here is Kelsey's review:

 "This book reminds me of everything I love about old horror films -- a sort of slow-burn suspense that builds with every scene until I'm creeped out to my core. Malerman's pacing in this novel is amazing -- each chapter gives you just enough information to require that you read just one more until you find yourself ten chapters deep and still unable to stop reading. This is a chilling story about survival in the face of terrifying adversity. Read with the lights on and a blindfold handy (Just trust me on that one)."

"An unsettling thriller, this earns comparisons to Hitchcock's The Birds, as well as the finer efforts of Stephen King and cult sci-fi fantasist Jonathan Carroll." -Kirkus Starred Review

Josh Malerman is the lead singer and songwriter for the rock band The High Strung. Bird Box was released in May of 2014.
