Summary
"[This] haunting tale weaves a mesmerizing web around fatherhood, racism, horrific anxieties and even To Kill a Mockingbird. And the backdrop for this rich phantasmagoria? The boroughs of New York."—The New York TimesWinner of an American Book Award, a Locus Award for Best Horror Novel, a British Fantasy Award for Best Horror Novel, a World Fantasy Award for Best Novel • Nominated for a Shirley Jackson Award, an International Dublin Literary Award, a Mythopoeic Award for LiteratureWhen Apollo Kagwa's father disappeared, he left his son a box of books and strange recurring dreams. Now Apollo is a father himself—and as he and his wife, Emma, settle into their new lives as parents, exhaustion and anxiety start to take their toll. Apollo's old dreams return and Emma begins acting odd. At first Emma seems to be exhibiting signs of postpartum depression. But before Apollo can do anything to help, Emma commits a horrific act and vanishes. Thus begins Apollo's quest to find a wife and child who are nothing like he'd imagined. His odyssey takes him to a forgotten island, a graveyard full of secrets, a forest where immigrant legends still live, and finally back to a place he thought he had lost forever.NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York TimesUSA Today • The New York Public LibraryNPR • BuzzFeedKirkus ReviewsBook Riot "The thriller you won't be able to put down."—O: The Oprah Magazine"By turns enchanting, infuriating, horrifying, and heartbreaking, The Changeling is never less than completely engaging."—NPR"Strange and wonderful."—The New York Times"A dark fairy tale of New York, full of magic and loss, myth and mystery, love and madness.
