Voodoo Heart


Voodoo Heart Cover



Reading Group Guide

Dark, funny, and powerful, Voodoo Heart is a debut collection of stories from Scott Snyder, a fiercely original young writer with a playfully deranged voice unlike any other. The seemingly normal and even mundane lives of his protagonists are confronted by bizarre situations that result in funny and heartbreaking stories. These fanciful and dark characters are oddly relatable and portray the unexpectedness and irrationality of life. Enter a world in which a man breaks into a prison at night to ask a convicted murderer if his heart is good or evil; where a man spends his days chasing a blimp across America in which he thinks girlfriend has escaped; or where an engaged couples relationship is fractured when one of them becomes obsessed with an inmate at the womens prison next door. Scott Snyders world is impossible to forget.
