Marshall in the News

It’s not your imagination. Novels are getting weirder.

It is the aim of Kate Marshall’s excellent new book, “Novels by Aliens: Weird Tales and the Twenty-First Century,” to rectify this neglect. For Marshall, an English professor at the University of Notre Dame, the Weird, in its many manifestations, stands at the center of contemporary literary culture — so long as we know where and how to see it.
