Josh Malerman's debut novel BIRD BOX is a terrifying, Hitchcockesque psychological horror that is sure to stay with you long after reading. 'In its world of collapsing resources, endless terror and eye masks, Bird Box turns the old Hollywood cliche of facing down the demon inside out - then tears it into little pieces' Daily Mail Malorie raises the children the only way she can: indoors. The house is quiet. The doors are locked, the curtains are closed, mattresses are nailed over the windows. They are out there. She might let them in. The children sleep in the bedroom across the hall. Soon she will have to wake them. Soon she will have to blindfold them. Today they must leave the house. Today they will risk everything.
'Unflagging suspense and ever-present dread' Adam Nevill 'This completely compelling novel contains a thousand subtle touches but no mere flourishes - it is so well, so efficiently, so directly written I read it with real admiration' PETER STRAUB 'It's so original, horrific, nightmarish, but with the addition of such dramatic and engrossing character and plot development that I simply had to read it all in one sitting' MURIEL GRAY 'Josh Malerman's Bird Box will take its place amongst the best and most original tales of survival. Uniquely disturbing, exceptionally compelling and beautifully written, I defy anyone not to read it in one sitting' SARAH PINBOROUGH 'A book that demands to be read in a single sitting, and through the cracks between one's fingers. There has never been a horror story quite like this. Josh Malerman truly delivers' HUGH HOWEY (bestselling author of WOOL)
