In the back of the book the publisher/editor compares this work to Lautréamont's "Chants de Maldoror" which is a fair comparison. Both books bring up a dread that can't really be described, it is more of a mood piece than anything else. As a reader you just follow the pathway and let the writing take you to another place. For those who have a collection of Surrealist text, "Haunted House" is an important part of that textural world. It is a fave of Andre Breton, so he knows!
