SILK. Caitlín R. Kiernan.


[New York]: ROC, [1998]. Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Paperback original. This award winning author's first novel. "Despite its title, there's nothing smooth or sexy about this skin-crawling debut from Kiernan, an author with one helluvan imagination and a startling lack of inhibition. At the center of this modern gothic horror story is Spyder Baxter, a deeply troubled young woman haunted by terrifying memories of childhood and her insane, abusive father. But his transgressions were so heinous that the demons aren't just in her head anymore; they've taken on a life of their own and are taking over Spyder's house, crawling out of the basement and into everything and everyone she cares about. Caught in Spyder's web of bad karma are a motley crew of disenfranchised Gen Xers all living on the edge and trying to heal various psychic wounds of their own." - Publisher's Weekly. Mild edge rubs, a fine copy, unread. (25169). Item #25169
