I First started reading Darnielle's fiction because I am a huge fan of his band, The Mountain Goats. His unique style of story telling is on full display in his second novel, Universal Harvester. This story is set in Iowa in the fall and winter so it's a perfect book for this time of year in the Midwest. As unnerving as it is heartwarming, we follow Jeremy, a clerk at a video store who begins seeing something very disturbing on the VHS videos he brings home to watch with his father. This novel is, at it's center, about a family and loss and how we move forward.
