    Description

    World Fantasy Awards Best Novel 2017

    Chicago, 1954. When his father, Montrose, goes missing, 22-year-old army veteran Atticus Turner embarks on a road trip to New England to find him, accompanied by his uncle George - publisher of The Safe Negro Travel Guide - and his childhood friend Letitia. On their journey to the manor of Mr. Braithwhite - heir to the estate that owned one of Atticus’ ancestors - they encounter both mundane terrors of white America and malevolent spirits that seem straight out of the weird tales George devours.

    At the manor, Atticus discovers his father in chains, held prisoner by a secret cabal named the Order of the Ancient Dawn - led by Samuel Braithwhite and his son Caleb - which has gathered to orchestrate a ritual that shockingly centres on Atticus. And his one hope of salvation may be the seed of his - and the whole Turner clan’s - destruction.

    An imaginative blend of magic, power, hope, and freedom that stretches across time, touching diverse members of two Black families, Matt Ruff's Lovecraft Country is a devastating kaleidoscopic portrait of racism - the terrifying spectre that continues to haunt us today.

    Commentaires

    "Narrator Kevin Kenerly gives a strong voice to two extended Black families who are victimized by racism in this terrifying blend of horror, history, and pulp noir.... Thanks to Kenerly, this production is a chilling examination of racism, both overt and subtle." (Audiofile magazine)

    Awesome

    Definitely entertaining. Well written and-read as well. You have to be in the right frame of mind for certain books. The timing was right for this one. I had to continue listening until the end

    Not Lovecraft country

    I’m sure I’m not the only one to mention this, but borrowing of the name Lovecraft does not mean that this has anything to do with the Lovecraft mythos. Nothing. A little disappointing if that’s what you’re looking for. But otherwise a good book. Disappointing though.

    Amazing!

    Great book, amazing characters, great story and a super interesting horror backdrop. It takes the racism subject into a whole other level with real life monsters, that are way more scary than anything Lovecraft or other horror writes ever concocted! Kevin Kenerly's acting is amazing and he took me by the hand in this trip so fluidly.
