For Globe and Mail subscribers.

The Globe and Mail and Vancouver Writers Fest present the second Globe and Mail Book Club, hosted by award-winning author Esi Edugyan.

Edugyan will speak with author of The Broken Hours, Jacqueline Baker.

About The Broken Hours: A brilliantly written, compelling and deeply creepy novel, The Broken Hours is an irresistible literary ghost story, delving into the life of H.P. Lovecraft when he is broke, living alone in a creaky old house and deathly ill. At the edge of a nervous breakdown, he hires a personal assistant, Arthor Crandle—soon drawn into Lovecraft’s distinctly unnerving world: the malevolent presence that hovers on the landing; the ever-shining light from Lovecraft’s study, invisible from the street; and visions in the night of a white-clad girl in the walled garden.
