Description


In isolated British Columbia, girls, mostly native, are vanishing from the sides of a notorious highway. Leo Kreutzer and his four friends are barely touched by these disappearances until a series of mysterious and troublesome outsiders come to town. Then it seems as if the devil himself has appeared among them.
In this intoxicatingly lush debut novel, Adrianne Harun weaves together folklore, mythology, and elements of magical realism to create a compelling and unsettling portrait of life in a dead-end town. "A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain" is atmospheric and evocative of place and a group of people, much in the way that Jesmyn Ward's "Salvage the Bones" conjures the South, or Charles Bock's "Beautiful Children" provides a glimpse of the Las Vegas underworld: kids left to fend for themselves in a broken world rendered with grit and poetry in equal measure.
