"A charismatic cast of misfits, losers, and bruisers animate this winning novel set in Niagara Falls, a.k.a. Cataract City--a slightly seedy, slightly magical, slightly haunted place, where seemingly ordinary lives are steeped in secrets, desires, troubled histories, and the occasional splash of mayhem. Like Ilium, New York, in the novels of Kurt Vonnegut, or Castle Rock, New England, in the fiction of Stephen King--or even Hawkins, Indiana, in the Netflix sensation Stranger Things, Cataract City is an invented world where lost innocence mingles with the darker shades and sharper corners of humanity. Saturday Night Ghost Club is a short, irresistible, and bittersweet coming-of-age story about a small group of kids who, under the leadership of an eccentric uncle, spend one summer investigating the validity of local ghost stories and macabre urban myths--in almost every instance getting in way over their heads. With warmth, skill, and striking, cinematic imagery, and a rare gift for conjuring totally original, unexpected, and unforgettable set pieces and tableaus that strike the reader as immediately iconic--Davidson draws us into his gritty world, reminding us that life's strange intensity and occasional magic is all around us."-- Provided by publisher.
