Críticas:

Another only Matt Ruff could do this production. "Lovecraft Country" takes the unlikeliest of premises and spins it into a funny, fast, exciting and affecting read. --Neal Stephenson, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Seveneves" and "Anathem""

"Lovecraft Country" is bound to appeal to any reader who wants to delve into the strangeness of our land s racial legacy. --"Seattle Times""

"Lovecraft Country" rubs the pervasive, eldritch dread of Lovecraft s universe against the very real, historical dread of Jim Crow America and sparks fly. . . . Ruff renders a very high-concept, imaginary world with such vividness that you can t help but feel it s disturbingly real. --Christopher Moore, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Lamb" and "A Dirty Job""

A chimerical blend of magic, power, hope, and freedom that stretches across time, touching diverse members of two black families, "Lovecraft Country" is a devastating kaleidoscopic portrait of racism the terrifying specter that continues to haunt us today. --Tor.com"

I ve heard amazing things about "Lovecraft Country" by Matt Ruff, and on the strength of his previous books, I m inclined to expect greatness from him. --Charlie Jane Anders, "The Amazon Book Review""

I enjoyed every ounce of Ruff s book. --Tor.com"

"Lovecraft Country" is a genre-bending attempt to address the severe problem of race in modern America, skewering the prejudices of older pulp works while maintaining their flavor, but it s also a compulsively readable horror-fantasy in its own right: timely, terrifying, and hilarious. --"Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog""

Nonstop adventure that includes time-shifting, shape-shifting, and Lovecraft-like horrors ... Ruff, a cult favorite for his mind-bending fiction, vividly portrays racism as a horror worse thananything conceived by Lovecraft in this provocative, chimerical novel --Booklist (starred review)"

Reseña del editor:

The critically acclaimed cult novelist makes visceral the terrors of life in Jim Crow America and its lingering effects in this brilliant and wondrous work of the imagination that melds historical fiction, pulp noir, and Lovecraftian horror and fantasy.

Chicago, 1954. When his father Montrose goes missing, 22-year-old Army veteran Atticus Turner embarks on a road trip to New England to find him, accompanied by his Uncle George—publisher of The Safe Negro Travel Guide—and his childhood friend Letitia. On their journey to the manor of Mr. Braithwhite—heir to the estate that owned one of Atticus’s ancestors—they encounter both mundane terrors of white America and malevolent spirits that seem straight out of the weird tales George devours.

At the manor, Atticus discovers his father in chains, held prisoner by a secret cabal named the Order of the Ancient Dawn—led by Samuel Braithwhite and his son Caleb—which has gathered to orchestrate a ritual that shockingly centers on Atticus. And his one hope of salvation may be the seed of his—and the whole Turner clan’s—destruction.

A chimerical blend of magic, power, hope, and freedom that stretches across time, touching diverse members of two black families, Lovecraft Country is a devastating kaleidoscopic portrait of racism—the terrifying specter that continues to haunt us today.
