I Always Find You

I Always Find You

Author: John Ajvide Lindqvist Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/09/2018

'The new Stephen King. Don't miss it' The Times In September 1985, nineteen-year-old John Lindqvist moves into a dilapidated old building in Stockholm, planning to make his living as a magician. Something strange is going on in the building's basement - and the price of entry is just a little blood. I Always Find You is a horror story - as bizarre and macabre as any of Lindqvist's bestselling novels. It's also a book about being young and lonely, about making friends and growing up. It's about magic, and the intensity of human connection - and a society's communal responsibility for a devastating act of political violence.

This gripping conceptual horror takes you deep into one of the most macabre and unique imaginations writing in the genre.

Four families wake up one morning in their caravans, next to their cars, on an ordinary campsite in southern Sweden. However, during the night something strange has happened. Everything else has disappeared, and the world has been transformed into an endless expanse of grass. The sky is blue, but there is no sign of the sun; there are no trees, no flowers, no birds. And every radio plays nothing but the songs of sixties pop icon Peter Himmelstrand. As the holiday-makers try to come to terms with what has happened, they are forced to confront their deepest fears and secret desires, and in many cases expose the less appealing aspects of their character. Past events that they have tried to bury rise to the surface and take on a terrifying physical form. Can any of them find a way back to reality?
