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 "The seductive and chilling debut novel from the critically acclaimed author of The King of Limbo. 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 mysterious and troublesome outsiders come to town. Then it seems as if the devil himself has appeared among them. In this intoxicatingly lush debut novel, Adrianne Harun weaves together folklore, mythology, and elements of magical realism to create a compelling and unsettling portrait of life in a dead-end town. A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain is atmospheric and evocative of place and a group of people, much in the way that Jesmyn Ward's Salvage the Bones conjures the South, or Charles Bock's Beautiful Children provides a glimpse of the Las Vegas underworld: kids left to fend for themselves in a broken world-rendered with grit and poetry in equal measure"--
