Welcome to Night Vale - Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor

Welcome to Night Vale (Harper Perennial, $19.99)—the book! The many fans of the podcast will eagerly greet this literary incarnation, which is filled with familiar characters, places, references to the show—and even answers  to some lingering questions about setting and backstory. Moreover, Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor take care to orient newcomers and occasional Night Vale visitors. The story centers on  two women: Jackie Fierro, nineteen-year-old pawn shop owner, and Diane Crayton, mother and PTA treasurer. Jackie’s predictable and routine life is thrown into confusion when a strange man in a tan jacket visits her shop. Meanwhile, Diane is tasked with caring for her shape-shifting son, but gets distracted when his estranged father starts showing up everywhere she goes, looking exactly as he did when he left years earlier. Each of these women has a separate story, but their lives are inextricably connected by two words: “King City.” Together, Fink and Cranor have an imagination like no other, and you’ll find it hard to put this eerie, dark, strange, and entertaining mystery.
