In the House in the Dark of the Woods, by Laird Hunt

Staff Pick

The story itself is simple: a Puritan goodwife strays too far from home and finds herself lost in the woods. This premise almost offers the familiar comfort of a childhood fairytale but what unfolds is an eerie, slow burn of psychological horror that is just vague enough to be satisfying. It’s this equivocal unknowing that makes this book so brilliantly atmospheric and only as scary as you dare interpret.
