Waterstones Says

Recounting the sinister history of Ash Tree Lane through found objects, random scribblings and other eerie ephemera, Danielewski’s audacious experiment in multimedia horror is a dazzling feat of invention and interpretation.  

Discover the cult classic - for brave readers of Stephen KingJG Ballard and David Foster Wallce

A young couple - Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Will Navidson and his partner Karen Green - move into a small home on Ash Tree Lane

But something is terribly wrong - their house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

Neither Will nor Karen are prepared to face the consequences of this impossibility.

What happens next is loosely recorded on videotapes and interviews, leading to a compilation of the definitive work on the events on Ash Tree Lane, unveiling a thrilling and terrifying history.

Loose sheets, stained napkins and crammed notebooks prove to be far more than the ramblings of a crazy old man . . .

Twin Peaks, Black Mirror, Stranger Things and IT.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Over the last 20 years, House of Leaves has continued to reward readers prepared to navigate its labyrinth, with a community of fans ready to support them if they every get lost in the dark - Guardian

A great novel. A phenomenal debut. Thrillingly alive, sublimely creepy, distresingly scary, breathtakingly intelligent - it renders most other fiction meaningless. One can imagine Pynchon and Ballard and Stephen King and David Foster Wallace bowing at Mark's feet, choking with astonishment, surprise, laughter and awe. I feel privileged to be among its first readers. Will I ever recover? - Bret Easton Ellis

Genre-defying . . . a novel in which something is always lurking just out of sight . . . at once a genuinely scary chiller, a satire on the business of criticism and a meditation on the way we read. - Observer

This demonically brilliant book is impossible to ignore, put down or persuasively conclude reading. In fact, when you purchase your copy you may reach a certain page and find me there, reduced in size like Vincent Price in The Fly, still trapped in the web of its malicious, beautiful pages. - Jonathan Lethem

Superbly inventive . . . a rare debut: genuinely exciting. - Guardian

There is a core of dark power in House of Leaves and a sense of return to the great dark matter of American literature: the haunted houses of Hawthorne, Poe and Lovecraft . . . one of the few fictions genuinely to approach the nightmarish. - Independent

Remarkable . . . genuinely clever and learned, often funny, brilliantly constructed and surprisingly touching . . . a debut of scintillating intelligence and scope. - Mail on Sunday

“Fabulous!”

I read this book when I was at the university and actually wrote my MA on it. Read it four times and still want more... At the time when I was dealing with it (8 yrs ago) there were only two proper critical reviews... More
