NOS4A2 - Joe Hill

“….and there was something awful about Christmas music when it was almost summer.” This sense of unease permeates Joe Hill’s new novel, NOS4A2 (Wm. Morrow, $28.99). Charles Manx likes to take children for rides in his 1938 Rolls Royce Wraith (with the vanity plate NOS4A2; read it out loud). He drives them to a place he calls Christmasland, and only one person, Victoria McQueen, manages to elude him. But then Charlie abducts her son. Vic has a Triumph motorcycle and a secret, and she is just the person who can put a stop to Manx’s kidnappings. Hill has written a truly terrifying yet exhilarating book, with a villain to keep you up at night and vehicles that play roles as pivotal as those of the human characters. NOS4A2 is, without a doubt, Joe Hill’s best book to date. Yes, it feels wrong to read about Christmas in July—but that is exactly the point.
