Mark Z. Danielewski, the internationally bestselling author of "House of Leaves" and the National Book Award nominated "Only Revolutions," comes to Google to discuss his planned 27-volume epic, "The Familiar," of which Volume 3 was released in June 2016.
The novel ranges from Mexico to Southeast Asia, from Venice, Italy, to Venice, California, with nine lives hanging in the balance, each called upon to make a terrifying choice. At the very heart, though, is a twelve-year-old girl named Xanther who one rainy day in May sets out with her father to get a dog, only to end up trying to save a cat as fragile as it is dangerous. The series continues the spectacular visuals and vibrant wordplay that are Danielewski's trademark, making "The Familiar" a beautiful and singular reading experience.
