Product description

Review

"Tremblay expertly ratchets up the suspense until the tension is almost at its breaking point."--Kirkus Reviews

"A Head Full of Ghosts scared the living hell out of me, and I'm pretty hard to scare."--Stephen King

"[B]rilliantly creepy."--Library Journal

"Gripping and truly scary, this book feels of the moment in a way few thrillers do."--B&N Reads

"[A] scary story, indeed."--BookPage

"A mind-bending tale of psychological horror is unleashed, raising disturbing questions about memory and reality, science and religion, and the very nature of evil."--Buzzfeed

"Dark, brilliant, and impossible to predict, [this] is more than a perfect horror story. It's a smart and savage look at American culture in all its madness, and the price girls are forced to pay by a society obsessed with spectacle and sin."--Cara Hoffman, author of So Much Pretty and Be Safe I Love You

"A Head Full of Ghosts is the literary lovechild of Shirley Jackson and William Peter Blatty, a novel that's as disturbing as the worst nightmare you ever had as a kid, and as impossible to forget."--Elizabeth Hand, author of Generation Loss and Available Dark

"A Head Full of Ghosts is one of the best novels released this year. ...Paul Tremblay confirms what we already knew: he's one of the greatest horror writers today."--This is Horror (UK)

"By turns horrifying, very funny, melancholy, ironic and, with each page, dazzlingly original, A Head Full of Ghosts is a one-book rocket ride through contemporary society where, if Evil doesn't actually exist in a Biblical sense, we're just the folks to invent it on our own."--The Day newspaper

From the Back Cover

A chilling domestic drama that blends psychological suspense with a touch of modern horror from a new, brilliantly imaginative master

The lives of the Barretts, a normal suburban New England family, are torn apart when fourteen-year-old Marjorie begins to display signs of acute schizophrenia.

To her parents' despair, the doctors are unable to stop Marjorie's bizarre outbursts and subsequent descent into madness. As their home devolves into a house of horrors, they reluctantly turn to a local Catholic priest for help. Father Wanderly suggests an exorcism; he believes the vulnerable teenager is the victim of demonic possession. He also contacts a production company that is eager to document the Barretts' plight for a reality television show. With John, Marjorie's father, out of work for more than a year and medical bills looming, the family reluctantly agrees to be filmed—never imagining that The Possession would become an instant hit. When events in the Barrett household explode in tragedy, the show and the incidents it captures become the stuff of urban legend.

Fifteen years later, a bestselling writer interviews Marjorie's younger sister, Merry. As she recalls those long-ago events from her childhood—she was just eight years old—painful memories and long-buried secrets that clash with the television broadcast and the Internet blogs begin to surface. A mind-bending tale of psychological horror is unleashed, raising disturbing questions about memory and reality, science and religion, and the very nature of evil.

A Head Full of Ghosts is a terrifying tale told with inventive literary flair and unrelenting suspense that craftily, cannily, and inexorably builds to a truly shocking ending.
