The “Fall of the House of Usher,” by Jack Neary, is a new adaptation of the classic Poe tale, re-invented as a detective thriller set in 1930s Boston.
Writer James Brookfield is invited to the home of his childhood friend, Roderick Usher, to, as his host suggests, “chronicle the evolution” of the House of Usher.
What begins as a pleasant distraction from the busy hubbub of New York literary circles turns into a maelstrom of horror.
