Matt Bell - In the House upon the Dirt between the Lake and the Woods

Colfax Avenue: Critically acclaimed writer Matt Bell will read from and sign his debut novel In the House upon the Dirt between the Lake and the Woods (Soho), a fantastical book which tells the story of a newly married couple who take up a lonely existence in the title’s mythical location. Bell’s novel is about marriage, parenthood, and the dreams parents have for their children—as well as what happens to a marriage whose success is measured solely by the children it produces, or else the grief that marks their absence.

"Matt Bell does not write sentences—he writes spells. He is not a novelist—he is a mystic. ~Benjamin Percy

“It's hard to imagine a book more difficult to pull off, but Bell proves as self-assured as he is audacious.... Bell's novel isn't just a joy to read, it's also one of the smartest meditations on the subjects of love, family and marriage in recent years...." ~NPR
