Description

No one wants bad news, but it's something to tell.

In isolated British Columbia, girls, mostly Native, are vanishing from the sides of a notorious highway. Leo Kreutzer and his four friends are barely touched by these disappearances - until a series of enigmatic strangers arrive in their remote mountain town- Keven Seven beguiles shy Ursie with his fantastical card tricks; bone-white Hana Swann bewitches Bryan with ideas of violent revenge against the tyrannical local meth dealer and, even more frighteningly, hypnotizes the toughest among them, Jackie, into undertaking a solitary journey.

It seems as if the devil himself has appeared among them.

A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain is the intoxicatingly lush debut novel by the critically acclaimed author of The King of Limbo , and is a tale written as seductively and beautifully as the devil's dark arts are wielded.

'Magical . . . Adrianne Harun possesses the rare ability to see the world at an odd tilt that makes everything appear new, at times even to shimmer.' Richard Russo

'Dark mysterious . . . and by turns Gothic and grittily realistic, astute, and poetic in its evocation of evil everywhere.' Andrea Barrett, author of Ship Fever and Servants of the Map

display_description "Harun is heir apparent to Louise Erdrich and Harry Crews.... Readers will be swept away by this breathless, absorbing novel." —Claire Vaye Watkins, The New York Times Book Review

In this mysterious and chilling novel, girls, mostly Native, are vanishing from the sides of a notorious highway in the isolated Pacific Northwest. Leo Kreutzer and his friends are barely touched by these disappearances—until a series of enigmatic strangers arrive in their remote mountain town, beguiling and bewitching them. It seems as if the devil himself has appeared among them.

The intoxicatingly lush debut novel by the acclaimed author of The King of Limbo, A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain is an unsettling portrait of life in a dead-end town, as seductive and beautifully written as the devil's dark arts are wielded.
WINNER OF THE 2015 PINCKLEY PRIZE FOR DEBUT CRIME NOVEL
