The Boy Who Drew Monsters
Keith Donohue manages to peer into the darkest nightmares of childhood and beckon forth the monsters from the closet Atmospheric and haunting. The Boy Who Drew Monsters is all the more chilling because it is grounded in real family life, with its heartbreaks and tenderness. The Boy Who Drew Monsters reminds us that there is no rage like the rage of children Donohue fills his pages with intimacy and dread, and whips up an ending that'll take your breath away.
That's what Jack Peter's parents tell him, and what I kept telling myself as I got sucked deeper and deeper into this delectably chilling novel. But still, as I read, I found myself looking out the window at shadows moving in the darkness, until finally I had to get up and flip on every light switch in the house.
The Boy Who Drew Monsters left me breathless and reeling, questioning the line between what is real and what is imagined -- and realizing that the meeting of the two is where true terror dwells. Creepy, nostalgic, and understated, The Boy Who Drew Monsters is a tale meant for the dark of night, but most will want to enjoy it with all of the lights on. Robert Cargill, author of Dreams and Shadows.
A sterling example of the new breed of horror: unnerving and internal with just the right number of bumps in the night. The final page--the final sentence, really--comes as a clever surprise, but one that resonates soundly. Fans of Donohue's first novel, The Stolen Child , will be pleased.
Also recommended for readers of Joe Hill. A luminous and thrilling novel about our humanity. So spare and unsentimental that it's impossible not to be moved. His work has been translated into two dozen languages, and his articles have appeared in The New York Times and The Washington Post , among other publications.
