BALLAD OF BALLARD AND SANDRINE, THE by Peter Straub - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Peter Straub.

“Twisting time and expectations, Straub’s disturbing novella slowly submerges readers in an enigmatic nightmare… Horror master Straub (A Special Place) creates a deeply unsettling mystery…”

Meet Ballard and Sandrine, the eponymous protagonists of Peter Straub’s extraordinary, deeply unsettling new novella. The two are lovers, widely separated in age but bound together by a common erotic obsession. Their story, which takes place over a period of twenty-five years, is set primarily within the various incarnations of a mysterious yacht making its endless way down the Amazon river. Their journey encompasses moments of beauty and horror, mystery and revelation, pleasure and pain, culminating in the vision of an astonishing —and appalling—apotheosis.

In The Ballad of Ballard and Sandrine, the author of the classic Blue Rose trilogy (Koko, Mystery, and The Throat) offers us one more glimpse behind the curtain that separates the visible world of commonplace events from an infinitely stranger world filled with wonders and enigmas, magic and terror. It is a world that only Peter Straub could have created and it burns its way indelibly into the reader’s mind.
