In his quiet Vermont home, a man named Taft sits and wonders what’s missing from his life. He’s at a loss until a strange voice startles him from the rocking chair, where a stranger has seemingly appeared out of nowhere: well-dressed and smooth-talking, this man offers Taft the chance to have anything he’s ever wanted—for a price. So begins The Devil in the Valley, the latest novel from critically acclaimed author Castle Freeman, Jr. Placed in his classic setting of rural Vermont, Freeman gives us a story that touches on temptation and greed, and explores what we’re willing to trade to obtain the things we most desire. A memorable story that explores the supernatural while staying rooted deeply in our world, The Devil in the Valley is a powerful novel from a master at his craft.
Castle Freeman, Jr. is the author of four other novels, including All That I Have and Go With Me, two collections of short stories, and many essays and other nonfiction. His stories have been mentioned or included in Best American Short Stories and other major collections. He lives in southeastern Vermont.
