THE CURIOUS CASE OF H.P. LOVECRAFT
By Paul Roland
H.P. Lovecraft is widely regarded as one of the greatest writers of modern horror fiction and a pervasive influence on popular culture. His monstrous creations have shaped the look of countless
films, graphic novels and computer games. This accessible new biography explores the life and work of the man Stephen King called ‘the 20th century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale’ – drawing upon Lovecraft’s correspondence, the forgotten memoirs of his estranged wife Sonia and more
– to uncover the man behind the myth. Illustrated with personal sketches, letters and manuscripts in Lovecraft’s own hand as well as rare family photos from every phase of the author’s life.
