I guarantee IN THE HOUSE UPON THE DIRT BETWEEN THE LAKE AND THE WOODS is like no other novel you’ve ever read. Revolving around the deceptively simple premise of a husband and a wife trying to start a family and a life of their own, Matt Bell has crafted a surreal fable that is at once ancient, modern and timeless. It is an incantatory work begging to be read out loud, more epic poem than novel, steeped in allegory and mythic imagery that is both haunting and revelatory. And like all great myths, IN THE HOUSE always manages to straddle the line between otherworldly weirdness and universal truth.
