Johnny Truant wild and troubled sometime employee in a LA tattoo parlour, finds a tebook kept by Zampa, a reclusive old man found dead in a cluttered apartment. Herein is the heavily antated story of the Navidson Report. Will Navidson, a photojournalist, and his family move into a new house. What happens next is recorded on videotapes and in interviews. Now the Navidsons are household names. Zampa, writing on loose sheets, stained napkins, crammed tebooks, has compiled what must be the definitive work on the events on Ash Tree Lane. But Johnny Truant has never heard of the Navidson Record. Nor has anyone else he kws. And the more he reads about Will Navidson's house, the more frightened he becomes. Paraia besets him. The worst part is that he can't just dismiss the tebook as the ramblings of a crazy old man. He's starting to tice things changing around him ...Immensely imaginative. Impossible to put down. Impossible to forget. House of Leaves is thrilling, terrifying and unlike anything you have ever read before.
