A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Esswood House. Home and estate of the Seneschal family, aristocratic patrons of the literary arts for well over a hundred years. D. H. Lawrence, T. S. Eliot, Ford Madox Ford, and Henry James were privileged to call themselves guests and Esswood Fellows. Even minor poets such as Isobel Standish found Esswood?s refined atmosphere an inspiration for her work. There was always talk of a hidden secret in Esswood?s past?and the Seneschal children were often so pale and sickly?but don?t all English manor houses have a few ghost stories to call their own? When Professor William Standish receives the rare honor of an Esswood Fellowship, and the chance to study Isobel?s private manuscripts at close hand, he is thrilled beyond his wildest ambitions. But upon arriving, something seems slightly strange at Esswood House. He hears faint laughter in the halls, the pitter-pattering of small feet in the night; strange faces appear in the windows of the library, and of course, there are those giant dollhouses in the basement . . . Never before published as a separate volume, Mrs. God is a very different kind of ghost story from one of America?s most celebrated authors. ?Peter Straub is a national treasure.? ? Lawrence Block

Synopsis:

"As a stylist, Peter Straub has one of the most literate and original voices working in fiction today...Mrs. God is a tour de force of brooding menace and mystery...Here, Straub uses his descriptive strength to slyly hint at an English manor's strange history and present mystery, skillfully building the plot to an excruciating climax", Charles de Lint.
