Product Description

Lovecraft had an unusual childhood marked by tragedy. His travelling salesman father developed a mental disorder and, in 1893, became a patient at the Butler Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, and there he remained until his death.

A sickly child, Lovecraft became an avid reader. He loved the works of Edgar Allan Poe and developed a special interest in astronomy. As a teenager, he suffered a nervous breakdown and became a reclusive figure, choosing to stay up late studying and reading and writing and then sleeping late into the day.

During this time, he managed to start publishing short stories of his inimitable form of horror fiction As mythical as one of his own creations, his innumerable readers see him as having been a rather strange figure from another world.

Who really was this recluse from Providence?
