Based on the hit podcast Welcome to Night Vale, this novel takes the reader to the fictional world of Night Vale, “a friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep.” The story alternates between the perspectives of Jackie Fierro, a pawnshop owner who has been nineteen for the past several decades, and Diane Crayton, a young mother struggling to connect with her teenage son. Despite Jackie and Diane’s best efforts to avoid one another, their fates seem fundamentally intertwined, taking them out of Night Vale to pursue a man in a tan jacket, a mysterious place called King City, and a piece of each of their pasts neither of them thought they would see again. Witty, fantastical, and utterly surreal, Welcome to Night Vale: a Novel is recommended for fans of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Neil Gaiman, and the Welcome to Night Vale podcast.
