This one of Uncle Stevie's most solid entries in a while. The book is made up of four novellas exploring the duality each of us harbors. I highly enjoyed the first story, "1922" which to me seemed like Steinbeck crossed with, well, Stephen King. He manages to reflect the ethos of the pre-depression years in rural America while bringing a more modern shock sensibility to the tale.

The two middle entries were interesting, but not as shocking. The last one was again excellent. The exploration of the degree to which one can know another person, even one that you've spent all your life with, was chilling and while it retreads territory already explored in Psycho or even Mr. Brooks, the occurrences are explorer from a much more personal perspective than those films.
