About this title

Synopsis:

Welcome to Night Vale . . . a friendly desert community where mysterious lights pass overhead. In this ordinary little town where ghosts, angels, aliens, and government conspiracies are commonplace parts of everyday life, the lives of two women, with two mysteries, are about to converge.

Like all of Night Vale, pawn shop proprietor Jackie Fierro abides by routine. But a crack appears when a mysterious man gives her a slip of paper marked by two words: KING CITY. Everything about the man unsettles her, especially the paper that she cannot remove from her hand. Yet when Jackie searches for the man, no one who meets him can seem to remember anything about him.

Diane Crayton’s fifteen-year-old son, Josh, is moody and a shape shifter. Lately, Diane has started to see the boy’s father everywhere she goes, looking the same as he did the day the day he left. Josh is growing ever more curious about his estranged father—leading to a disaster Diane can see coming, but is helpless to prevent.

Propelled by two words—KING CITY—Diane’s search to reconnect with her son and Jackie’s search to reclaim her routine life draw them increasingly closer to one another, and to this place that may hold the key to their mysteries and their futures . . . if they can ever find it.

Performed by Cecil Baldwin & Music by Disparition

Guest Starring Dylan Marron, Retta, Thérèse Plummer, and Dan Bittner

Review:

--The book is charming and absurd - think -This American Life- meets -Alice in Wonderland.---Washington Post

"This is a splendid, weird, moving novel...It manages beautifully that trick of embracing the surreal in order to underscore and emphasize the real - not as allegory, but as affirmation of emotional truths that don't conform to the neat and tidy boxes in which we're encouraged to house them."--NPR.org

""The book is charming and absurd - think "This American Life" meets "Alice in Wonderland."--Washington Post

"Longtime listeners and newcomers alike are likely to appreciate the ways in which Night Vale, as Fink puts it, "treats the absurd as normal and treats the normal as absurd." What they might not foresee is the emotional wallop the novel delivers in its climactic chapters."--Austin Chronicle

"The hit podcast is absurd and hilarious, and as a book it's similarly entertaining..."--The Guardian

"Fink and Cranor's prose hints there's an empathetic humanity underscoring their well of darkly fantastic situations. . . . the book builds toward a satisfyingly strange exploration of the strange town's intersection with an unsuspecting real world."--Los Angeles Times

"Welcome to Night Vale lives up to the podcast hype in every way. It is a singularly inventive visit to an otherworldly town that's the stuff of nightmares and daydreams."--BookPage

"As a companion piece, "Welcome to Night Vale" will be hard to resist. Though the book builds toward a satisfyingly strange exploration of the strange town's intersection with an unsuspecting real world, its mysteries - like the richest conspiracy theories - don't exist to be explained. They just provide a welcome escape."--Detroit Free Press

"The charms of 'Welcome to Night Vale' are nearly impossible to quantify. That applies to the podcast, structured as community radio dispatches from a particularly surreal desert town, as well as this novel, written by the podcast's co-creators, Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"This is the novel of your dreams. . . . A story of misfit family life that unfolds along the side streets, back alleys and spring-loaded trap doors of the small town home you'll realize you've always missed living in. When it says 'welcome, ' it's mandatory. You belong here."--Glen David Gold, author of Carter Beats the Devil and Sunnyside
