Staff Reviews

Don't let its tiny package fool you: though underwhelming in size, You Should Have Left packs a terrifying gut punch. This is an utterly chilling metaphysical ghost story worthy of a hot cider and a cold October night.

— From Rachel's Picks


From the internationally best-selling author of Measuring the World and F, an eerie and supernatural tale of a writer's emotional collapse

A screenwriter, his wife, and their four-year old daughter rent a house in the mountains of Germany, but something isn't right. As he toils on a sequel to his most successful movie, the screenwriter notices that rooms aren't where he remembers them--and finds in his notebook words that are not his own.
