The book began life as a short story that Mitchell wrote live on Twitter under the hashtag#THERIGHTSORT. The story is told from the point of view of a boy who is high on his mother’s Valium.
Set across five decades, the book begins in 1979 and culminates on Halloween of 2015. “Slade House is the perfect book to curl up with on a dark and stormy night,” boasts the publisher’s description which promises “a taut, intricately woven, spine-chilling, reality-warping novel.” The book is currently available for preorder and ships in October.
