ANGEL HOUSE: David Leo Rice with Patrick McGrath (PRINCE STREET)

ANGEL HOUSE is a surreal, haunted coming-of-age novel about two boys who exist simultaneously at multiple points in their lives, trying to negotiate the ever-shifting terrain of their small town, which may encompass all of existence. Drawing on New England and Southern Gothic traditions, as well as that of the Eastern European grotesque, the novel follows the exploits of numerous characters in this deteriorating town, as they struggle in their desperate and hallucinogenic ways to outrun certain doom.

David Leo Rice is a New-York-based writer and animator. His first novel, A Room in Dodge City, came out in 2017, and ANGEL HOUSE, his second, came out this year. His stories and essays have appeared in The Believer, Catapult, Electric Lit, The Rumpus, The Collagist, DIAGRAM, and elsewhere, and he currently teaches at Parsons School of Design.

Patrick McGrath is the author of three collections of short fiction and nine novels, including ASYLUM, TRAUMA and most recently, THE WARDROBE MISTRESS. His work has been widely published in translation, and his screenplay of his novel SPIDER was filmed by David Cronenberg, starring Ralph Fiennes. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and has lived for many years in New York City, where he teaches at the New School.
