I'm starting a new daily series entitled Novel-ember. Every day this month I will post a favorite fiction book from my collection.
Day 1: Crawlspace, Herbert Lieberman.
One of my top favorites. An elderly couple find a man living under their house. They wind up adopting him as a sort-of surrogate son. Fascinating, touching and chilling.
A TV movie was made in 1972 that is pretty faithful to the material.
Copies can be found in most any used bookstore and in various formats on Amazon.
