Product Description

Jack Durkin is the ninth generation of Durkins who have weeded Lorne Field for nearly 300 years. Though he and his wife Lydia are miserable, Jack must wait until his son has come of age to tend the field on his own. It's an important job, though no one else seems to realize it. For, if the field is left untended, a horrific monster called an Aukowie will grow--a monster capable of taking over the entirety of America in just two weeks. Or so it is said . . .

Zeltserman has written the book his fans have been waiting for--a horror classic unlike anything you've ever read, now available in paperback.

"A magnificent novel, with truly believable characters and suspense that keeps building to an explosive climax." --Seymour Shubin, author of Anyone's My Name

"A superb mix of humor and horror . . . Zeltserman orchestrates events perfectly . . . Readers will keep turning pages to see how the ambiguous plot resolves." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Harrowing. Zeltserman colors it black with the best of them." --Kirkus Reviews
