Generation Loss

1 Mins read

generationlossSet on a wintry island off the coast of Maine, this book introduces us to a physically and mentally scarred bisexual photographer, Cassandra Neary, who travels to the island to write a piece for a pop culture magazine. She encounters missing teenagers, pets killed by mysterious woodland creatures, and is almost overwhelmed by an overpowering sense of darkness and memories of past horrors.

This could be described as a literary crime thriller. That is neither good nor bad. Elizabeth Hand asks us to look beneath the surface of her words, and explore complex but disturbing metaphors which link art, images, life and, ultimately, death. Dark, complex and scary, Generation Loss ticks all the boxes. Read the full review here.
