Thomas Tryon A gripping novel of terror similar to Tryon's first book, The Other. Holland and Niles Perry are identical thirteen-year-old twins.
First we meet Fedora, longest-reigning beauty of them all. Sexy Lorna comes next. We find her in a secluded resort trying to heal herself after many jobs, many men, and much trouble. A gripping novel of terror similar to Tryon's first book, The Other. They are close, close enough, almost, to read each other’s thoughts, but they couldn’t be more different. Holland is bold and mischievous, a bad influence, while Niles is kind and eager to please, the sort of boy who makes parents proud.
The Other was Thomas Tryon’s first novel, written after having spent much of his early adulthood as a Hollywood film actor. The Other is a frame story, but the identity of the narrator is unknown until the book’s denouement. The story involves two twin boys, one of whom is a vicious evildoer while the other acts as his doe-eyed apostle. Of course, every evil deed performed is accompanied by telling amounts of circumstantial ambiguity so one could probably see The Big Reveal coming a mile away, especially if he’s seen enough M. Night Shyamalan films.

Thomas Tryon’s best-selling novel about a homegrown monster is an eerie examination of the darkness that dwells within everyone. It is a landmark of psychological horror that is a worthy descendent of the books of James Hogg, Robert Louis Stevenson, Shirley Jackson, and Patricia Highsmith.
Holland and Niles Perry are identical thirteen-year-old twins. Mr. Tryon creates characters that are so true to life you swear you met them before or they really existed at some time. This book is intelligent horror written by a late great author who doesn't suffer from verbal diarrhea like some of the popular present day writers. Harvest Home is another novel written in the early seventies that is just as creepy with a stunning ending, I loved it!

Fully a third of our horror roots are missing, which is too bad because while The Other isn’t as good as Rosemary’s Baby it’s a far, far better-written book than The Exorcist. Tryon was an actor who had, as People magazine put it, a relentlessly mediocre acting career in Hollywood. The Other was instantly heralded as a classic and Tryon hit the road, doing interviews and selling his book practically door to door. His reward was massive sales and critics falling all over themselves to proclaim it a masterpiece.
