ABOUT THE FAMILIAR: VOLUME 5
The Season One finale of this riveting multisensory masterpiece from the visionary author of House of Leaves.
The astonishing series about a young girl who befriends a cat hunting humanity continues with Volume 5, in which the consequences of how we encounter one another come into poignant and terrifying relief--especially on one September night, when an unexpected phone call demanding the return of the little white cat challenges everything the Ibrahims hold dear. They are not alone. Jingjing must contend with a rival he could never have anticipated, while Xanther must relinquish all she thought she knew as a far greater responsibility is set before her. Light wavers and pomegranates reveal their price as the effects of a great transition start to reverberate around everyone. Shnorhk's efforts to resume playing music cannot escape history's ghosts. Cas, in upstate New York, comes face-to-face with her lifelong nemesis in a candlelit rendezvous that presages the international crisis soon to come. As more lines tangle, Özgür and Luther brawl with a future that may have chosen them long ago, and Isandòrno crosses a line that will force him over the border into a country he has until now steadfastly refused. All the while, a terrible power roaming the world continues to grow . . .
