Comment: While I as a general rule am not a large horror fan, this book may very well change my opinion. A fascinating look at life in the early 60's and a brush with the supernatural. I do not believe I will look at a corn field the same way again. Note: There is a Book Club edition that is the same size as the trade edition and not the smaller size commonly found.
