How Spooky

October 28, 2023

As we approach Halloween it seems timely to read fiction that is in some way ghostly. This week each book has disturbing aspects that fit the season: a historical horror novel set in a boy’s reform school; short stories and a novel that delve into chilling aspects of modern technology; a haunting reimagining of 1984; and the writer Clarice Lispector’s newly translated novel about a mysterious crime.

Happy reading,
