Alive in Necropolis BARGAIN  $5.79 
Sorry, product image is currently not available



by Doug Dorst.

OVERVIEW: A young cop stumbles across a victim in a cemetery—one of many such places in the San Francisco suburb of Corma, where most of the citys famous residents have been laid to rest—and finds the dead are not nearly so departed as he once thought.

Doug Dorsts smart and accessibly unconventional first novel, Alive in Necropolis ... is not quite a horror story, nor exactly a mystery, nor just a hard-boiled police procedural, but an adult coming-of-age saga that pulls with energy and imagination from these various genres.... Dorst very deftly alternates ... perspectives, using a limited third-person narrative shot through with streaks of black humor to vivid, insightful effect.... Alive in Necropolis proves truly haunting.—SFChronicle

2008 Riverhead Hardcover. 437 pages. Remaindered. List Price. $26.00.
