Flavorpill’s Most Anticipated Books of 2012

Threats, Amelia Gray (February)

“Before long, there will be statues of Gray in various corners of the literary world,” Emma Straub predicts, and we’re willing to bet on that. We’ve loved everything that’s come out of her weird, surreal brain thus far, and we’re fairly certain her newest novel will be no different: it’s the tale of a man whose wife has died for seemingly no reason, and while he tries to figure out what has happened, he finds a series of escalating threats and missives hidden in random places around his home, all of this bizarre seeking rendered in Gray’s signature striking prose, strange, perfect, and stingingly bare.
