Brian McGreevy shares an excerpt from Hemlock Grove

in Fiction by

”It takes a rare stroke of genius to reconfigure the gothic novel within the postindustrial barrens of steel country and another entirely to upstage this conceit with a mythic and ambitious story of adolescence and alienation. Like a collaboration between Edgar Allan Poe and J. D. Salinger, this is a real emerging talent.” –Philipp Meyer, American fiction writer, author of American Rust ”In screenwriter McGreevy’s smartly constructed debut novel . . . McGreevy cleverly contemporizes the gothic novel, underlining the isolations of modern-day technology and adolescence in this engaging, though occasionally affected, literary horror novel.” —Publishers Weekly Nothing Weird About It Excerpted from Hemlock Grove: A Novel by Brian McGreevy And remember: the flesh is as sacred as it is profane.

in Non-Fiction by

I looked at my reflection and despaired. As an exhausted young mother I felt ugly and saw that a new dress or face cream would never help. I was at risk of passing on a habit of feeling miserable about my looks to my baby girl—if nothing changed. Soon afterward Phoebe Baker Hyde made a vow: to give up new clothes, makeup, haircuts, and jewelry in hopes of revealing something she had always paid lip service to but never quite believed in—her inner beauty. The Beauty Experiment chronicles Hyde’s quest for self-acceptance in nothing but her own skin. In thoughtful, exquisite prose, Hyde holds up a mirror to all women and shows how perfectionism can keep us from achieving what…
