Description
The long-awaited first novel by the award-winning author of two impressive story collections explores the sinister side of desire in Bakersfield, California, circa 1959, when a famous director arrives to scout locations for a film about madness and murder at a roadside motel. Unfolding in much the same way that Hitchcock made "Psycho"--frame by frame, in pans, zooms, and close-ups--Mun oz's re-creation of a vanished era takes the reader into places no camera can go, venturing into the characters' private thoughts, petty jealousies, and unrealized dreams. The result is a work of stunning originality.
