First Images of Mark Z Danielewski’s ‘The Familiar’

Like a love child of Borges and Derrida, Mark Z. Danielewski has both built and dismantled the labriynth of story telling many times over.

His latest project, ‘The Familiar’ is a sprawling epic 27 volume opus, the first of which ‘A Rainy Day In May’ will be released…

…In May

Like all of Danielewski’s work, The Familiar will ask a lot of the reader, but hopefully, like House of Leaves and Only Revolutions before it, these efforts are exponentially rewarded.
