BLACK HOLE COLLECTED HC

  • Suburban Seattle, the mid-1970s. We learn from the out-set that a strange plague has descended upon the areas teenagers, transmitted by sexual contact. The disease is manifested in any number of ways from the hideously grotesque to the subtle (and concealable) but once youve got it, thats it. Theres no turning back. As we inhabit the heads of several key characters some kids who have it, some who dont, some who are about to get it what unfolds isnt the expected battle to fight the plague, or bring heightened awareness to it , or even to treat it. What we become witness to instead is a fascinating and eerie portrait of the nature of high school alienation itself the savagery, the cruelty, the relentless anxiety and ennui, the longing for escape. And then the murders start. As hypnotically beautiful as it is horrifying, Black Hole transcends its genre by deftly exploring a specific American cultural moment in flux and the kids who are caught in it.
