It is not light reading, or easy to describe by any means. It was written by Mark Danielewski and has two pertinent stories in the book. First is the story of Johnny Truant, the character who "edits" the manuscript left behind by a blind author named Zampano. The manuscript itself is about a film released called The Navidson Record, a series of twisted home movies about a house whose inner dimensions are larger than its outer dimensions. In the center of the house is a series of corridors, and a spiral staircase whose diameter changes seemingly randomly. The manuscript itself is typset in odd ways, often requiring you to turn the book in odd directions, and at one point, going into braille. It's thrilling, but often times too self-consciously "arty." Very creepy and chilling, but definitely an acquired taste.
