Product Description

By the author of the acclaimed novel Go With Me, which has now been adapted to a film starring Anthony Hopkins and Julia Stiles, a modern reimagining of Doctor Faustus, set in Castle Freeman Jr.’s trademark depiction of rural Vermont.

In his quiet Vermont home, a man named Taft sits and wonders what’s missing from his life. He’s at a loss until a strange voice startles him from the rocking chair, where a stranger has seemingly appeared out of nowhere: well-dressed and smooth-talking, this man offers Taft the chance to have anything he’s ever wanted―for a price. So begins The Devil in the Valley, the latest novel from critically acclaimed author Castle Freeman, Jr. Placed in his classic setting of rural Vermont, Freeman gives us a story that touches on temptation and greed, and explores what we’re willing to trade to obtain the things we most desire.

A memorable story that explores the supernatural while staying rooted deeply in our world, The Devil in the Valley is a powerful novel from a master at his craft.

“If the devil is in the details, then the devil has met his match. Castle Freeman, Jr. conjures an intricate tete-a-tete with the devil into a Vermont home-brew of brimstone and beneficence. Fast-paced, compulsive, The Devil in the Valley leaves you wanting more. Temptation on the page.”
—Gregory Maguire, bestselling author of Wicked and After Alice

“Castle Freeman has somehow infused The Devil in the Valley with a mysterious energy that keeps a reader eagerly turning pages while desperately hoping the book will go on and on. This is fine and deeply enjoyable writing.”
—David Huddle, author of The Faulkes Chronicle



Castle Freeman, Jr. is the author of four other novels, including All That I Have and Go With Me, two collections of short stories, and many essays and other nonfiction. His stories have been mentioned or included in Best American Short Stories and other major collections. He lives in southeastern Vermont.
