The WD's Book Club: Universal Harvester by John Darnielle

The Wild Detectives

Our new pick for our Book Club meeting in March is "Universal Harvester," the haunting new novel from, John Darnielle, author of the New York Times bestseller and National Book Award–nominee "Wolf in White Van."

Set in Iowa, the once placid fields and farmhouses are now sinister and imbued with loss and instability and profound foreboding. According to Joe Hill (New York Times) “Universal Harvester sounds like the stuff sweet nightmares are made of—but ultimately the novel doesn’t belong in the horror aisle. I couldn’t tell you where it ought to be filed, and maybe that’s O.K.”

Book Club members (meaning you just show up) will enjoy a 10% discount on the title and on every item, they’ll ask for at the bar during the Book Club meeting. We’ll meet on Monday, April 17 at The Wild Detectives.

Let’s meet up and talk Literature!
