This paperback book was published in 2008 by Barking Mad Press with 175 pages. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound. The cover is moderately worn around the edges. From the acclaimed author of A Short History of a Small Place and Seaworthy comes a wholesale departure -- a comic/horror/romance/fantasy infested with both unsavory American politicians and venomous Venetian lizards. Awash in Pearson's singular wit, Red Scare tells the headlong story of a public school biology teacher and a National Gallery curator who join forces to thwart the dire consequences of a medieval Italian curse. This novel, though slender, is packed to overflowing with priapic senators, clueless teenagers, dubious art history, clumsy quasi-romantic repartee, garish worldwide bloodletting, corrosive humor, and enough malicious scuttling reptiles to keep you from ever planting your bare feet on a darkened floor again.
