A place to talk about Joe Hill's fiction, and other fiction
<----- Yes, that is a very good description of that story. I didn't put it down, but it was a strange thing to read / witness (felt like I was right there).Barry_Wood wrote: I find it uncomfortably creepy, yet interesting.

Maybe trying to figure out what all the story is about is why masks were used in the first place. My Father's Mask is a remarkable example of why I adore Joe Hill. I find it uncomfortably creepy, yet interesting.

1. the story about the grandfather
2. the son's name is Jack
3. the scene at the window, when the father doesn't get the chance to warn Jack because mother finds them ("remember...")
4. the fact that the father is not upset, not desperate, not afraid (when Jack and his mother leave).
does no one else but me feel like they understand it? (yes it took 3 readings...)
