Lawrence Miller, English expatriate and professor of gender studies, tells the story of what appears to be an elaborate conspiracy to frame him for a series of brutal killings. We descend into a world of subtly deceptive appearances where paranoia assumes an air of calm rationality and enlightenment itself casts a darkness in whcih the most nightmarish acts occur. Written with sinuous grace and intellectual acuity, The Horned Man is an unforgettable excursion into the lethal battleground of desire and repression.
