Something strange is happening in the seaside town of Bareneed. Mythical creatures are being pulled from the sea, perfectly preserved corpses of long-lost villagers are washing up on the shore, and residents of the town are suddenly overcome by a mysterious illness that is making them forget how to breathe.
 
A page-turning gothic thriller reminiscent of H. P. Lovecraft, The Town That Forgot How to Breathe is ""a novel of dazzling ambition and strange, haunting loveliness. . . . An absolute triumph of the storyteller's art"" (Joseph O'Connor, author of Star of the Sea).

""An eerie and gripping story, the work of an extravagantly haunted imagination.""--J. M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize--winning author of Disgrace
 
""[A] thoughtful, grounded piece of literary horror.""--San Francisco Chronicle
 
""Haunting, poetic, funny, moving, The Town That Forgot How to Breathe takes on the big themes--the meaning of life, our relationship to the dead, man's place in the rapidly changing modern world--and carries everything off with a surging confidence that leaves the reader, well, breathless.""--John Harding, Daily Mail (U.K.)
 
""Harvey brings uniquely imaginative storytelling skill to this wickedly allegorical tale. . . . It will frighten readers so much they may never turn out the lights.""--BookPage
 
""Harvey's characters and their world--both the mystical and the real--are meticulously created. He moves between them in a way that creates dread and confusion, leaving readers on edge. . . . A fascinating, mystical story that will make readers hold their breath.""--Detroit Free Press
 
""Both a contemporary and a historical novel, The Town That Forgot How to Breathe is a tour de force! It speaks of the sea: of those who are upon it, beside it, beneath it. Kenneth J. Harvey, a writer like no other, is as knowledgeable as he is adventurous. A very exceptional novel, extraordinary in its power.""
---Alistair MacLeod, author of No Great Mischief
 
""The quality of [Harvey's] storytelling and his way with an eerie instant are too good to miss.""--The Times (London)
 
""Harvey has managed to come up with something fresh and original. . . . His voice and vision are unique and strong through his writing, and it's just the breath of fresh air needed in horror fiction today.""--HorrorChannel.com
 
""A heartwarming romance . . . a creepy horror story . . . a subtly didactic political allegory . . . [and] a fascinating regional novel . . . Harvey is an author whose storytelling prowess can speak for itself.""--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
""Chilly as the touch of Corpse-Weed, and haunting as the trouble in Stephen King's 'Salem's Lot or H. P. Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror. Harvey delivers the horror goods.""--The Believer
 
""Harvey's American debut is big in every way. . . . Mystical, complicated, and always compelling, this is a standout among fall fiction. . . . Highly recommended.""--Library Journal
 
""A compelling tale that works on several levels--as a horror story, a warm father-daughter bonding story, and as a social commentary.""--The Sacramento Bee
 
""A very creepy read; thoughtful and eerie at the same time.""--The Arizona Republic
 
""Harvey's own tall tale is a richly ambiguous parable, not of the need to abandon technology in favor of 'the simple life,' but of the need to restore myth and poetry to our lives.""--The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
""Impressive . . . A truly strange and thoroughly entertaining page-turner, part fairy tale, part fable, part gothic thriller.""--Irish Independent
