About the Author

Brian Evenson: Praised by Peter Straub for going furthest out on the sheerest, least sheltered narrative precipice, Brian Evenson is the author of ten books of fiction. He has been a finalist for the Edgar Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the World Fantasy Award and the winner of the International Horror Guild Award, the American Library Association s award for Best Horror Novel, and one of "Time Out New York" s top books. The recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship and three O. Henry Prizes, Evenson lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where he directs Brown University s Literary Arts Program.

Reviews

"The clinical tone with which Evenson is able to traverse such situations, and the strange stark architecture of their world, makes even the most insidious or repulsive situations seem plausible, mathematical, nearby. Nothing is real, so everything is real." -VICE "The deceptively simple prose keeps the book brisk and even gripping as its puzzles grow more craggy and complex. This is Evenson's singular, Poe-like gift: He writes with intelligence and a steady hand, even when his characters decide to lop their own limbs off." -Time Out New York "[Last Days] is a novel that must be read by fans of mysteries, noir, and horror if they want to have an idea of what those genres can be. . . . Brian Evenson is the kind of writer who should be rediscovered by every generation." -Vol. 1 Brooklyn "Last Days . . . is a detective novel and a cult novel (in that it is about cults-though perhaps the other designation would work too) and a brutal horror novel and a fine work of minimalist literary fiction." -LitHub
