It's there in the dark, waiting for me to move... Jonah Ellis is a reclusive college student with mysterious nightmares that plague not only his unconscious mind, but his life—dark images of an evil that pursues Jonah and forces him to confront a past he would rather ignore. When he meets Dr. Ari Nowery, a college lit professor who recognizes his battle within—and Glorie, a girl who is also hiding from the beast and has more in common with Jonah than she knows—will he figure out the common thread between them? Will he actually have to encounter the creature in his dreams? Join Paul Records as he craftily uses the study of two popular pieces of American literature, weaving them together with the lives of these characters in a way that readers won't soon forget. Jonah's is a journey that God means for all to take—a journey that reveals the Creature in all of us.

Perhaps the most defining characteristic of American literature composed after World War II is the rejection of conventional form and structure with its increasingly uninhibited and experimental style. Embracing works from previously marginalized groups like African Americans and women and ushering in new genres, contemporary American literature has progressively begun to mirror the American population in diversity and versatility. In this volume, readers are invited to think critically about the social issues and ideas that are as much a part of modern American life as they are of modern American literature.
