About The Book


When you prick a columnist, does he not drain? All things considered, no, he doesn't. (We don't have what you people call "blood.") But he writes frightful things about you.

Which is the thing that I was ready to do when I read this section from Dean Koontz's 41st novel, The Face: ".

[A] columnist from Entertainment Weekly, utilizing an inappropriate finish of a pencil, would be taking notes… . At the point when the story hit print, each reality would not be right."

"Barbarous Koontz!" I cried, shaking my little eraser at the sky. In any case, at that point I understood I was in the hands of an ace comedian — and, as any Weird Al unfortunate casualty can confirm, it's a respect to be mocked.

"The Face," you see, is a MOCK spine chiller, an unsparingly mindful farce on the transgressions of a decreased sort, from a person who should know, having submitted them all. Metatextual boldness, thy name is Koontz!

Like an advanced Swift, he devises splendidly senseless names for intentionally insane characters: The lowlife, for instance, is one Vladimir "Corky" Laputa, a savage English educator cum-revolutionary who fiddles with each obnoxious deed, from murder to spray painting to nontraditional ways to deal with writing.

Corky designs to ambush the Bel-Air house of dull hotshot Channing "The Face" Manheim. 


Be that as it may, first he'll need to sidestep Ethan Truman, Manheim's agonizing security boss and Koontz's rebelliously tasteless White Hat.

With evil incongruity, the creator hurls some supernatural quality in with the general mish-mash, rounding out the pap trinity of Guns, Goons, and God (no Girls, however, apparently to feature the homoeroticism idle in "masculine" potboilers).

Honing his deconstructive shiv, Koontz leaves no banality unturned, no hackery unhackneyed, no street nervousness unexploited.

Corky, for instance, is so obviously an absurdist reactionary scarecrow — the scholarly as Godless, tweed-swaddled mullah, attempting to ruin things for Just Plain Folks — we can't resist the urge to chuckle at mash's modest demagoguery and our weakness to it.

Koontz more likely than not been chuckling too when he guilefully embraced the old "dim and stormy night" scenery — the ENTIRE STORY happens under a scriptural downpour — with a post-Sept. 11 contort.

"With snuffle, snarl, and keening appeal, the wolfish breeze asked passage," he goofs. "Over the mythical city rolled a low extended thunder." 


That's comic gold all alone — however Koontz continues pushing: "[Hearing the thunder,] Ethan… had imagined a fear based oppressor assault some place, ladies and children killed by the fascistic Islamic radicals who benefited from insidiousness and slithered the cutting edge world with devil assurance."

The storyteller sputters like a bunkered survivalist whose lone contact with the world is the periodic Reader's Digest pushed under the portcullis.

However, Koontz isn't simply uncovering his type's suspicious populism. He's out to prune its natural external twists, as well: the dark buddy with whom the white saint swaps cheerful YOU DA MAN's; the brave, intelligent child; and, obviously, the indecent looting of mainstream film — a "Frenzy Room" asthma assault here, a "Mash Fiction" joke there.

"The Face" is at its tart best when Koontz jabs gaps in his trademark pseudo spirituality.

At a certain point, he ventures to such an extreme as to portray the danger of star-69-ing a call from the Hereafter: "Star sixty-nine may associate you with a spot you should not go… . The dim endlessness," a netherworld telephone amigo cautions. "

At the point when you press star sixty-nine, you open a way to them… . Do we have to talk their sulfurous name?"

No, we don't. The air is sulfurous enough with the sharp disrespectfulness of evaluation A self-spoof. Envision if Koontz had been not kidding! At that point I may have needed to turn this pencil around and keep in touch with some extremely awful things.
