Buon lunedì, prodi seguaci!🦌
Questo fine settimana mi sono finalmente decisa a sistemare quei due cassetti sfondati da eoni, così ho scoperto di avere millemila calzini e mutande, visto che mia madre continua a regalarmene paia su paia con la scusa che è roba che serve sempre. Be’, adesso ho una sacchettata di calzini e mutande scelte tra quelle che mi piacevano meno e pronte per la donazione, in attesa che i casi di COVID-19 calino un po’.
E ho fatto notare a mia madre che non riesco a consumare mutande e calzini abbastanza velocemente per star dietro ai suoi regali!😅
Questa introduzione sull’ex-stato orrorifico dei miei cassetti per lasciarvi la citazione dall’horror che sto leggendo per la 2021 RHC, The Only Good Indians di Stephen Graham Jones.
Is he really about to tell her? Does the hot girl from work get to know what his wife doesn’t?
But she knew how to finish that elk on the floor, didn’t she? That has to mean something. And – Lewis hates himself for saying it, for thinking it, but there it is: she’s Indian.
More important, she’s asking.
«It was the winter before I got married», he says. «Six – no, ‘five’ days before Thanksgiving, yeah? It was the Saturday before Thanksgiving. We were hunting».
«We?» Shaney prompts.
«Guys I grew up with», Lewis says with a shrug, like they’re not the real focus. «Gabe, Ricky, Cassidy – Cas».
Shaney nods like he’s doing good so far, and looks over to the masking tape elk again, kind of for both of them it fells like, and the Lewis is talking, is confessing, is saying it all out for the first time, which must mean it really happened.
The creeping horror of Paul Tremblay meets Tommy Orange’s There There in a dark novel of revenge, cultural identity, and the cost of breaking from tradition in this latest novel from the Jordan Peele of horror literature, Stephen Graham Jones.
Seamlessly blending classic horror and a dramatic narrative with sharp social commentary, The Only Good Indians follows four American Indian men after a disturbing event from their youth puts them in a desperate struggle for their lives. Tracked by an entity bent on revenge, these childhood friends are helpless as the culture and traditions they left behind catch up to them in a violent, vengeful way.
