Chicago, 1954. When his father Montrose goes missing, 22-year-old Army veteran Atticus Turner embarks on a road trip to New England to find him, accompanied by his Uncle Georgeâpublisher of The Safe Negro Travel Guideâand his childhood friend Letitia. On their journey to the manor of Mr. Braithwhiteâheir to the estate that owned one of Atticusâs ancestorsâthey encounter both mundane terrors of white America and malevolent spirits that seem straight out of the weird tales George devours.
At the manor, Atticus discovers his father in chains, held prisoner by a secret cabal named the Order of the Ancient Dawnâled by Samuel Braithwhite and his son Calebâwhich has gathered to orchestrate a ritual that shockingly centers on Atticus. And his one hope of salvation may be the seed of hisâand the whole Turner clanâsâdestruction.
A chimerical blend of magic, power, hope, and freedom that stretches across time, touching diverse members of two black families, Lovecraft Country is a devastating kaleidoscopic portrait of racismâthe terrifying specter that continues to haunt us today.
