After a series of bad decisions, including fighting a group of off-duty cops, lands Pepper in a mental institution, he soon finds there are worst things stalking the halls than the power-drunk doctors. In another stunning novel by Victor Lavalle, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is re-imagined as a parable on white saviorism and effective ally-ship. With a buffalo monster.

In Broken Monsters, Beukes is both brutal and delicate, grotesques and subtle, fantastical and realistic, stretching, twisting, and distorting expected genres into something new and thrilling. It’s no wonder she has been praised by the likes of Stephen King and James Ellroy. Broken Monsters has raised the bar for contemporary horror.

Pepper gets dropped off at the New Hyde mental institution, not because he’s mentally ill, but because the plain-clothed cops who busted him didn’t want to deal with the paperwork of a formal booking. If he keeps his head down he’s out in 72 hours, but New Hyde has problems that drag Pepper down into its culture and close to insanity. Mental illness, power relations, race, sex, and the devil; this book goes beyond horror and social commentary to scratch at universal human truths, further proving that Victor Lavalle is the rightful heir to Kurt Vonnegut
