House of Leaves – The Review Show 172

Join us for a Review Show first, as we read the prose novel House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. Photojournalist Will Navidson and his family move into a new house, and soon discover a seemingly unending dark hallway that opens up where there was no door before. Will films every step of his exploration into the house, which is eventually edited into the documentary The Navidson Record. House of Leaves is a book with an interesting structure: academic articles were written about the movie, a man named Zampano wrote a book about the movie and the articles, and a listless young man named Johnny Truant finds Zampano’s notes after his death and edits the disorganized manuscript together, interjecting with his own footnotes along the way.
