Camp Crystal Lake is on fire, and everything’s been exhumed!!! In the burning forest it’s impossible to distinguish between the killers, the campers, and the camp counselors.
A cursed book wrought from a cursed planet, Run-off Sugar Crystal Lake is a fetish-object emanating oblique fan fictions and haunted eco-poetics. Where hedonistic teens perform hedonistic plays on an outdoor stage, where Sky Ferreira sings of cow disease, where campers make art out of toxic wreckage–the killers lurk! Berry has created a textualized slasher, brought to you in moldy technicolor splendor, that will fuel your nightmares for years to come.
CAUTION! THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR ALL READERS. IT CONTAINS VIOLENT IMAGES AND THEMES SOME MIGHT FIND DISTURBING.
“Crystal Lake is a dramedy/camp song/slasher film in the key of OMFG. Berry’s nimble, narcotic prose plays some very dirty games against a backdrop of impeccably designed pages, creating a queasily brilliant experience more akin to theater than to anything literature has heretofore managed to muster. Boundary-defying, extraordinarily intelligent, and gleefully savage, Crystal Lake is both playground and graveyard for a cast of very poisonous personae sure to delight and disorient even the most adventurous reader.” — Maryse Meijer
“Everything – whether human body, tree or random object – can be perforated, eaten, diseased, everything can be used to perforate, eat and infect, and everything is or can become garbage and waste in this tour de force of hyperintensity. The ambient violence includes the very medium of the text itself, which at times seems to be ekphrastic poem, devoured slasher script and ritual description.” — Johannes Goransson
