9780091953799: Night Film

On a damp October night, beautiful, young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Her death is ruled a suicide, but veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding her death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of Ashley's father: cult horror film director Stanislas Cordova. Rumored to be shuttered away in a remote Adirondack estate, Cordova remains an enigma. Though much has been written about his unsettling films, very little is known about the man himself. With the help of two strangers, McGrath is slowly drawn into Cordova's eerie, hypnotic world as he pieces together the answers: What really happened to Ashley? Who is Cordova? And once we face our deepest fears - what lies on the other side?

Review:

"Deliciously spine-tingling... all-consuming and mind-altering. Nothing else matters while there are pages to turn and, once the book is over, the world seems an emptier place." Daily Telegraph "This month's smartest (and creepiest) new novel is a hell of a read ... An intensely writerly project that doesn't jettison the reader ... It explores how stories seep from texts into the world; not only in that it follows a journalist investigating a cult horror-film director whose life is entangled in his fictions, but also because the pages are peppered with fake news article and websites. A narrative signifying narratives, this novel echoes ... The action bullet-trains through an artfully plotted world of secret screenings and suspicious deaths." GQ (Book of the Month) "Night Film, the gorgeously written, spellbinding new novel by the dazzlingly inventive Marisha Pessl, will hold you in suspense until you turn the final page." Stylist "When Cordova's beautiful daughter is found dead in a warehouse, McGrath can't help but pick up the trail. His pacy narrative voice is interrupted by magazine interviews, text messages, Facebook pages; a Cordova fan forum even pops up on the printed page ... The result is multiple narratives that read like real life (or a more exciting version of it) ... Night Film doesn't cease to be with its last full stop. [Pessl] has developed a phone app and a website with extra material - a savvy move." Vogue "The real and the imaginary, life and art, are dizzyingly distorted not only in a Cordova night film - which a fictional Time article calls "a spellbinding and emotionally harrowing experience" - but in Pessl's own Night Film as well. McGrath's prologue opens with a dictum "Everyone has a Cordova story, whether they like it or not." This book is ours." Vanity Fair

Book Description:

Night Film is a breathtakingly suspenseful literary thriller that makes you question how you decide what is real and what isn't from the critically acclaimed author of Special Topics in Calamity Physics
