Description

“At long last, Levin’s sequel to his bestselling 1967 horror novel!” Library Journal

Return to the dark and haunting world of Rosemary’s Baby in Ira Levin’s captivating sequel, Son of Rosemary.

Ira Levin’s Rosemary’s Baby, one of the best-selling books of all time, is an iconic classic that ushered in the era of modern horror. This shocking and darkly comic sequel is set well after the harrowing events of the first book, and is just as compelling and suspenseful. It is now 1999, and Rosemary Woodhouse awakens from a decades-long coma to find herself in a drastically changed world. She soon discovers her son is already thirty-three years old, and is a charismatic spiritual leader worshipped virtually world-wide, preaching a message of tolerance and peace. But is “Andy” the savior the troubled world desperately needs, or is he his father’s son—the Devil’s child?

Master of suspense Ira Levin’s thought-provoking exploration of good and evil, Son of Rosemary, finds Rosemary and her boy reunited in a battle of wills that will determine the course of the new millennium—and the fate of humankind.

Praise

“At long last, Levin’s sequel to his bestselling 1967 horror novel!” Library Journal

“Impossible to put down. Ever so subtly Levin has stripped his audience of their rational defenses and holds them in his clutches.” Providence Journal

“Disturbing. Rosemary notes that Andy’s eyes occasionally take on the Satanic cast she remembers so vividly from his childhood. Is her son leading humanity toward extinction or rebirth?” New York Times Book Review

“Levin is a…pro who knows how to seed his story with enough mini-mysteries (including several word puzzles integral to the plot) to keep readers pushing pages.” Publishers Weekly
