Editorial Reviews

Review

From Publishers Weekly
Convincing in its haunting whimsy, Alexander's emotionally complexfaerie tale comments on grim reality with chilling metaphors. A suicideattempt leads failed horror novelist Alicia Baum to the Library of LostChildhood Memories and Mr. Wicker, a sinister man who arouses both herpassion and her disgust, before she returns to life. She ends up in thecare of Dr. Farron, a gentle psychologist researching the concept ofbogeymen. Alicia strives to recover missing childhood memories asincreasingly violent accidents befall her friends and family, and shegrows more and more convinced that Mr. Wicker is not only real butintimately connected to her past. Alexander (By the Pricking)makes the impossible feel probable, anchoring fantasy in everydaystruggles. Alicia's spitfire defiance and charming vulnerability, andthe eventual romance between her and Dr. Farron, inject warmth intochilling encounters between a world that shouldn't exist andundependable reality. Illness, loss, and heartache color this splendid,bittersweet ode to the ghosts of childhood.

Early Praise for Mr. Wicker
"Suicide, love, lust, lost dreams and twisted purgatories...Maria Alexander's Mr. Wicker is an original, crafted of startling images and darkly poetic language. Eerily effective." --Steven Barnes, author of Lion's Blood

"Elegant chills, genuine awe, and true tragedy are all ingredients in the spell cast by Maria Alexander's Mr. Wicker. Anyone who has encountered Maria's short stories surely expects herfirst novel to be extraordinary, and she doesn't disappoint. Mr. Wicker is rich, lovely, and deeply unnerving." --Lisa Morton, author of Malediction and Trick or Treat: A History of Halloween
