About this product
- DescriptionThe village of Hemmersmoor is a place untouched by time and shrouded in superstition. There is the grand mar house whose occupants despise the villagers, the small pub whose regulars talk of revenants, the old mill one dares to mention. This is where four young friends come of age - in an atmosphere thick with fear and suspicion. Their incent games soon bring them face-to-face with the village's darkest secrets in this eerily dispassionate, astonishingly assured vel, evocative of Stephen King's classic short story Children of the Corn and infused with the spirit of the Brothers Grimm .
- Author BiographyStefan Kiesbye has an MFA in creative writing from the University of Michigan. Born on the German coast of the Baltic Sea, he moved to Berlin in the early 1980s. He studied drama and worked in radio before starting a degree in American studies, English, and comparative literature at Berlin's Freie Universitat. A scholarship brought him to Buffalo, New York, in 1996. Kiesbye now lives in Portales, New Mexico, where he teaches creative writing at Eastern New Mexico University. He is also the arts editor of Absinthe: New European Writing. His stories and poems have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies, and his first book, Next Door Lived a Girl, won the Low Fidelity Press Novella Award and was praised by Peter Ho Davies as utterly gripping, by Charles Baxter as both laconic and feverish, and by Robert Olmstead as maddeningly powerful.
