the whole thing — with all its artfulness and all its flaws — rolls out like a long-lost film from the man's wilder days, expansive and strange and pulled, wet, dripping and whole, out of Cronenberg's own head.


Neverhome: A Novel

Ash’s tale ends in tears and in a confession that I didn’t see coming, even if the signs are there to find throughout the book. If you like your fiction towards the more literary end of the spectrum, Neverhome will definitely be one for you.
