A slender trade paperback.  Recommended!  For those of you who love a brief but pithy deepdive that will send you down a lovely assortment of spooky rabbitholes, READ THIS!  Unavailable for many years, this delectable little opus explores why New England grows tendrils of spooky literature in every direction underneath its wholesome clapboard-and-blue-skies facade.

The Gothic Literature and History of New England surveys the origin, nature and future of the Gothic mode in New England's history and literature, from the Puritans to the present, showing how the legacy of religious intolerance, racism and misogyny haunts fiction, film and popular culture.
