Benjamin Percy is the guest. His new novel, Red Moon, is now available from Grand Central Publishing. It is the May selection of the TNB Book Club. (Photo credit: The Oregonian.)
John Irving says
Red Moon is a serious, politically symbolic novel—a literary novel about lycanthropes. If George Orwell had imagined a future where the werewolf population had grown to the degree that they were colonized and drugged, this terrifying novel might be it.
And Library Journal, in a starred review, raves
This literary thriller by an award-winning young writer will excite fans of modern horror who enjoy a large canvas and a history to go with their bloody action. . . . Fans of Max Brooks’s zombies and Justin Cronin’s vampires will enjoy the dramatic breadth of Percy’s tale of werewolves.
