“With Wonderland, Stage ups her game, giving us a personal and harrowing vision of a family on the verge of madness.”
Orla and Shaw Bennett believe they’re ready for the quiet life. Years of living in the city leads them to New York’s Adirondack mountains. Private, expansive, the nice farmhouse is just the place for them and their two children, literally miles away from their closest neighbors.
But something is waiting for them in the woods. Here, the secrets run dark and deep. From under the trees, beneath the earth, a voice is calling to the family, invading their minds. Orla may be the only one that can save her family.
She must find out what it wants, before time runs out.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Zoje Stage took the world by storm in 2018 with her debut novel Baby Teeth. Starting her career in film and theater, producing several award winning productions and short films. With Wonderland, Stage ups her game, giving us a personal and harrowing vision of a family on the verge of madness. Booklist says: “A beautifully choreographed and astonishing second novel from the author of the much celebrated Baby Teeth … The horror genre has found an eloquent and unflinching new author.” And Josh Malerman (Bird Box, Black Mad Wheel) says: “Zoje Stage is in total control of your nightmare.”
Forthcoming 14 July from Mulholland Books, Wonderland by Zoje Stage is available for pre-order now.
