Night Film: A Novel
Night Film: A Novel | Marisha Pessl
Brilliant, haunting, breathtakingly suspenseful, Night Film is a superb literary thriller by the New York Times bestselling author of the blockbuster debutSpecial Topics in Calamity Physics.On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashleys life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordovaa man who hasnt been seen in public for more than thirty years.For McGrath, another death connected to this seemingly cursed family dynasty seems more than just a coincidence. Though much has been written about Cordovas dark and unsettling films, very little is known about the man himself.Driven by revenge, curiosity, and a need for the truth, McGrath, with the aid of two strangers, is drawn deeper and deeper into Cordovas eerie, hypnotic world.The last time he got close to exposing the director, McGrath lost his marriage and his career. This time he might lose even more.Night Film, the gorgeously written, spellbinding new novel by the dazzlingly inventive Marisha Pessl, will hold you in suspense until you turn the final page.Advance praise for *Night FilmBeautifully imagined, beautifully written, and hypnotically suspenseful.Lee Child, author of *A Wanted ManA testament to Marisha Pessls tremendous gifts as a storyteller.Scott Smith, author of The RuinsThis summers Gone Girl: a completely absorbing literary thriller.*Library JournalGet ready to talk about this book.*Entertainment WeeklyA literary mystery thats also a page-turner . . .

Into this mazelike world of dead ends and false leads, McGrath ventures with his two, much younger helpers, Nora and Hopper, brilliantly portrayed Holmesian irregulars who may finally understand more about Ashley than their mentor, whose linear approach to fact finding might miss the point entirely.Booklist (starred review)Praise for *Special Topics in Calamity PhysicsA whirling, glittering, multifaceted marvel . . . an irrepressibly smart and flamboyant new voice.The New York TimesPessls talent for verbal acrobatics keeps the pages flipping.*USA Today*[A] blockbuster debut.People (Critics Choice)From the Hardcover edition.From Publishers WeeklySeven years after Special Topics in Calamity Physics, Pessl returns with a novel as twisted and intelligent as that lauded debut. Again, the story centers on a father-daughter relationship, but this time the sinister element is front and center, beginning with the daughter's death. The night films of Stanislas Cordova have a cult following: fans hold underground screenings and claim that to see his work is to leave your old self behind, walk through hell, and be reborn. Ashley Cordova is his enigmatic daughter; she appears in his final film at the age of eight, debuts as a pianist at Carnegie Hall at 12, and apparently commits suicide at 24. Scott McGrath is a reporter who lost his job investigating Stanislas and can't resist his need to uncover the real story of Ashley's death. Though the structure is classic noir, Pessl delivers lifelike horror with glimpses, in the form of faux Web sites, of the secretive Stanislas, his films, and his fans. Things slow down when Scott breaks into Stanislas's estate; sustained terror depends on what is withheld, not what is shown. But Pessl does wonderful work giving the hard-headed Scott reason to question the cause of Ashley's death, and readers will be torn between logic and magic. Agent: Amanda Urban, ICM. (Aug.) ReviewAn inventiveif brooding, strange and creepyadventure in literary terror. Think Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King meet Guillermo del Toro as channeled by Klaus Kinski. In her sophomore effort, Pessl hits the scary ground running. Kirkus Reviews

Dark thriller investigating the mysterious death of a famous film director's daughter. The book has excerpts of film blogs, newspaper clippings, and photos to support the story. There were some good twists and overall, even though some parts were unbelievable, I enjoyed it.

1. Night Film. It was definitely an interesting novel and very well written. Looking forward to reading more of her books.
2. No special nicknames. Usually just Jess or Jessie.
3. Potato skins and mozzarella sticks.
4. Probably reading, and getting the husband caught up on Legion and NOS4A2.
5. Only English. I‘m awful at learning other languages.

I didn't not like this book. I was slightly confused at first and found myself Googling Cordova. The biggest issue I had was this feeling that I had missed something vital and had to fight the urge to re-read the entire book. I did enjoy the writing itself. It wasn't a book I found boring but, because of my confusion and the length of the book (592 pages), I spent way too long trying to finish a book I wasn't 100% in love with.

This was dark, gritty, and full of mystery. It's the type of book that will stay with you for a long time. I wasn't overly thrilled with the ending, as it almost felt like a cliff-hanger, but it was still really well written. Just when you thought you knew what was going on, Pessl threw in more plot twists and introduced new characters... any one of whom could be responsible. 5🌟

I love books that tell stories in unique ways or using multiple medias within (or out) of the book -- "S," "Bats of the Republic," "House of Leaves," -to name a few. I'm not into horror very much, but I'm enjoying NIGHT FILM so far and the different types of documents embedded in the book.

#BookMail Pt2 I read the authors newer novel, Neverworld Wake, last year & it was one of my #BestOf2018 picks. I heard about this previous novel on Litsy, where people seemed to either love it or hate it, but it definitely got people talking. I figure if I loved Neverworld Wake, I‘m probably going to love this too. It‘s been described as “if Stephen King wrote a biography about a director with the genius of Kubrick & the madness of Dali”🤔

This book had me so engaged all the way through. It's a pretty big book but I never wanted to put it down. I adore the story which is this investigative narrative with a dash of horror/phycological thriller. I connected with the characters and the vocabulary of the author is so vast and enchanting. I just loved this book. 5/5 stars

A bit of a chilling read that I greatly enjoyed. A reclusive director of cryptic films, the death of his daughter, a disgraced investigative journalist, and an aspiring actress—it sets up a slow-burn of an atmosphere that was hard for me to resist.

Pickpick

This was such a unique book. The mixed media really worked here and the author truly developed a dark horror that sucks you in when you start and doesn‘t let up until you finish. It had a great ending that was unexpected and the characters were excellent. Everything had a purpose and I really liked that part of it!

Fantastic day at the #NationalBookFestival 😄
Listen to both Roxane Gay‘s & Leigh Bardugo‘s talks, represented Slytherin, and got Marisha Pessl to sign Night Film. ❤️

MyNamesParadise I was at the Marisha Pessl talk too!! 1y
JPeterson @MyNamesParadise Sadly I missed her talk (Leigh Bardugo‘s was at the same time), but it was awesome to fangirl and say hi to her for a few minutes. 😊 1y
