04.10.2013 - Marisha Pessl

After her very popular debut novel Special Topics in Calamity Physics Marisha Pessl is back with Night Film. She is coming to BorderKitchen to talk about it on October 4th. With her debut Pessl gave us an elegant, compelling and chillingly suspenseful novel. She stormed bestseller lists worldwide and was chosen as one of the year’s ten best books by The New York Times.

Her long awaited second novel Night Film is about the thin line between fact and fiction.
On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. He has been following the Cordova family for years, and is obsessed with Stanislas Cordova, the legendary, reclusive cult-horror-film and Ashley’s father.  The movie rights to Night Film have been bought by Chernin Entertainment. Rupert Wyatt, director of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, will direct the film.
