Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"In the town of Night Vale, there's a faceless old woman who secretly lives in everyone's home, but no one knows how she got there or where she came from--until now. Told in a series of eerie flashbacks, the story of The Faceless Old Woman goes back centuries to reveal an initially blissful and then tragic childhood on a Mediterranean estate in the early nineteenth century, her rise in the criminal underworld of Europe, a nautical adventure with a mysterious organization of smugglers, her plot for revenge on the ones who betrayed her, and ultimately her death and its aftermath, as her spirit travels the world for decades until settling in modern-day Night Vale" -- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 February #2
    The recent Night Vale novel reveals the past of the beloved and omnipresent character of the title, chronicling her childhood on the Mediterranean and the tragedies that threw her into a swashbuckling adulthood. The Faceless Old Woman's many adventures as she leads a band of thieves on an attempt to penetrate the mysterious Order of the Labyrinth leads to plots within plots and a final betrayal that will leave her to drift across the sea. Split between segments of her remembered life in the nineteenth century and brief observations from the 2010s of a man named Craig, the narrative weaves together the past, present, and future. As the book builds to her eventual transformation, her storied past and her determined interest in Craig's life become increasingly intertwined. While obviously of most interest to established fans of the Welcome to Night Vale podcast and its cast of characters, the distinctly spare and precise weirdness of Fink and Cranor's writing (It Devours!, 2017) will please even readers completely unfamiliar with the sinister town and its long-running radio show.
