As the work progressed it became obvious to Danielewski that the novel was something of a counterpoint to House of Leaves; in fact, he has said in interviews that Only Revolutions is centrifugal while House of Leaves is centripetal. A young couple - Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Will Navidson and his partner Karen Green - move into a small home on Ash Tree Lane. Asked to briefly describe House of Leaves, Danielewski has said in an interview that he “likes to look at House of Leaves as a three-character play: a blind old man, a young man, and a very special, extraordinarily gifted woman. the movie does not exist, the house does not exist, even many of the references sited in the footnotes do not exist.The novel also requires constant physical manipulation to read, whereas only certain sections of House of Leaves require readers to flip the book around. What happens next is loosely recorded on videotapes and interviews, leading to a compilation of the definitive work on the events on Ash Tree Lane, unveiling a thrilling and terrifying history. I got to the part with the passage from the POE album- the remix of "Hey Pretty", track 18, on pages 88-89. G. Ballrad, Stephen King, and David Foster Wallace bowing at Danielewski's feet, choking with astonishment, surprise, laughter, awe. Little is actually known about the inspiration for the story, or the exact time period during which it was written.

The novel went on to win the New York Public Library's Young Lions Fiction Award [3] and gain a considerable cult following. Jonathan Lethem, award-winning author of Motherless Brooklyn Years ago, when House of Leaves was first being passed around, it was nothing more than a badly bundled heap of paper, parts of which would occasionally surface on the Internet. All proceeds went to Homeboy Industries, a Los Angeles-based non-profit that offers training and support to at-risk and formerly gang-involved youth. Danielewski began work on a 27-volume series, The Familiar, although he completed only five volumes before halting the project in 2017.Very scarce UK hardcover first edition (less than 300 in total produced) issued concurrent with the UK paperback. THE MIND-BENDING CULT CLASSIC ABOUT A HOUSE THAT'S LARGER ON THE INSIDE THAN ON THE OUTSIDE  A masterpiece of horror and an astonishingly immersive, maze-like reading experience that redefines the boundaries of a novel. I'm terribly sorry I made a new thread for this, but I couldn't find anywhere it seemed sensible to post this, and couldn't see it mentioned anywhere else.

Why doesn’t Truant point this out as a typo, or is this another one of Truant’s “additions” to The Navidson Record? The text was serialized on an internet site before the book came out hence the "2nd Edition" statement on the title-page appearing on the first edition, first printing. House of Leaves is also the "book," painstakingly compiled by a strange old man named Zampanò, acquired after his death by Johnny Truant, an apathetic slacker mired in drugs and sad sex. He also composed the song "A Rose Is a Rose," [29] which Poe sang on the Lounge-a-Palooza compilation album.One of the centerpieces of the novel is a film, and Danielewski has said that film and film criticism were a (if not, the) major influence on the writing of the novel.

Years ago, when House of Leaves was first being passed around, it was nothing more than a badly bundled heap of paper, parts of which would occasionally surface on the Internet. However, his publishers pushed for him to do something more complex, with more colors, typographical intricacies and constraints. The on-going thread about the presence/absence of checkmarks hinges on this matter of differences between editions.PLEASE NOTE: the whole colophon is replete with metafictional misinformation: the first editions all state 2nd edition, with the fictional 'privately distributed' edition that the 'editors' of the Foreword allude to being the (ficitonal) first edition, etc. But for readers willing to commit themselves to a skewed adventure, House of Leaves offers an experience of darkness, a walk into Nothing with a camera in our hands. The production featured music, five people reading the words of the five speakers in the novella (including Betsy Brandt, who played Marie Schrader on Breaking Bad), [35] and shadow casting by Christine Marie.
