The Summer Job

“A knockout that’s reminiscent of classic genre novels like Stephen King’s Children of the Corn and Thomas Tryon’s Harvest Home. There’s a potent retro vibe running through Cesare’s work, in general—he’s the closest thing literary horror has to its own Jim Mickle or Ti West. He’s a cult favorite author in the making.”—Complex
