Praise for Robert Dunbar's WILLY
WILLY -- a dark literary novel by Robert Dunbar -- has been turning up on a lot of best-of-the-year and top-ten lists. The book has now appeared on the preliminary ballot for the Bram Stoker Award from the Horror Writers Association.
In an isolated school for boys with emotional problems, a disturbed adolescent struggles against a mire of ignorance and oppression. Then he meets Willy ... and the other boy – charismatic and strange – saves him. Or damns him.
