A propos de cet article

Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. "First of an informal trilogy of satirical horror novels, all set in Minneapolis. In THE BUSINESSMAN, middle-aged middle-management drone Bob Glandier is haunted by absurd manifestations of the ghost of his murdered wife, her mother, and the poet John Berryman, all of who have met in the afterlife . a slapstick spoof of modern horror fiction and the trend toward using the most banal aspects of ordinary life as springboards for supernatural experience." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-116. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#1956). N° de réf. du libraire 1956

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Exploring questions of guilt and responsibility, the second book in Thomas M. Disch's Supernatural Minnesota series, The M.D., is a satisfying mix of dark humor, biting social commentary, and terrifying horror. Given the power to heal or to harm by the Roman god Mercury through a magical staff, the caduceus, young Billy Michaels embarks on a lifelong journey of inflicting good and evil on those who cross his path. Wielding the caduceus, Billy, and later the grown-up, greedy physician William, can only cure in proportion to the amount of suffering he inflicts. From paralyzing his brother and mutilating schoolmates to wreaking a nationwide plague and running for-profit concentration camps for the sick, Michaels's powers spin quickly out of control.
