The Poolside isn’t complete without your Summer Reading.
Keeping with her tradition of serving up a sequel that outshines the forebears, Anne Rice continues the sage saga of the Mayfair Witches with Lasher. A sprawling, filthy-rich matriarchal clan of New Orleans eccentrics, The Mayfairs are a bejeweled family who harness the love, lust, and ingenious spite of a mysterious demon named Lasher to actualize their bidding. At about 500 pages and a quarter the length of the previous book, Rice never reserves her lunacy: delivering all the spellbinding, trigger-pulling extremes we expect of her with maximum potency. On full display is a scalding cauldron of Catholic guilt & Pagan rage, with the overbearing philosophical ruminations of previous works on hold.
Designed by Chip Kidd from his early days at Knopf (the wunderkind behind everything you care about from the hieroglyphic-silhouetted T-Rex clawing across Jurassic Park paperbacks to the Valley of The Dolls-inspired layout and typeface of Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind of Girl), this 1993 original features a startling, glossy dust jacket replete with contrasting dramatic elements. A ghostly, veil-tangled bride registered in shimmering sepia floats through a black oasis; the virulent white serifed-type assails & snags the eye, more ominous than the surrounding darkness.
