Nat Cassidy thrilled the horror world with his novel Mary, and now he’s back with his incredible follow up in Nestlings. Reid and Ana have won the lottery; well, not literally, but pretty close: the apartment lottery, in Manhattan no less. It happens to be at the Depford, one of the most revered buildings in the borough. They have an almost one year old, and this apartment is going to change their lives, all for the better they hope.
The only problem is their place is on one of the upper floors and Ana suffered a rare condition with the birth and is now paralyzed from the waist down and is wheelchair bound. There’s also something weird about the next door neighbor. Also the people who work for the building are very unusual, almost like there’s something wrong with them. And then there’s the history of the building which no one really seems to know about.
Sophomore novels are usually hard for authors, but Cassidy has knocked it out of the part with Nestlings. A brilliantly restrained and relatively short novel that takes on a number of subjects, such as New York culture, Jewish culture, disability rights, and strange creatures that reside in the Depford.
