Description

In the moments before his death, America’s most celebrated author of the macabre reveals how his sins and the tragedies of his life lead to his descent into madness and alcoholism, inspiring his dark and thrilling works. Thirteen of his most gripping tales including The Telltale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado and The Raven come to life as he reflects on his failed attempts at love and human connection.
