About the Author

Reviews

"A dreamy, mysterious waltz with the famous monsters of filmland. Tatum brings an insider's knowledge of the movie biz, and his love letter to America's great national obsession with the horror movie is caustic, hilarious and terrifying. This glittering new novel is a must-read for the modern monster." -- Nick Seeley, author of Cambodia Noir

"This bitingly witty and darkly vibrant concoction features an irresistible heroine, and the gorgeous, lush writing easily conjures the grit and glamour of golden age Hollywood. Maddy's story is crass, lyrical, and even tragic." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[T]horoughly entertaining, assisted hugely by Tatum's erudite first-person prose and fierce commitment to his ambitious, outlandish premise." -- Booklist

"Classic horror buffs will race through this novel that blends historical fiction with uncanny elements of the gothic. A perfect read for Halloween, Tatum's debut is a surprisingly poetic, witty love note to a bygone age of cinema." -- BookPage
