Summary

"Endlessly inventive . . . Mount Terminus reads at times like a more carefully modulated version of Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch. Or you might think of it as Marisha Pessl's Night Film on lithium."Ron Charles, The Washington Post


After his mother's death, young Bloom boards a train with his bereaved father, Jacob, to Mount Terminus, their new home at the desolate end of the world. In a villa built atop a rare desert spring, they live apart from society, supported by the income from Jacob's invention: the Rosenbloom Loop, a piece of technology that has revolutionized the nascent art of filmmaking. There, Bloom grows up in the shadow of his father's grief. But Jacob can't protect his family from the drama of his past forever, and Bloom, who has budded into an eccentric genius, can't live alone at the top of a mountain. Prodded by his newly discovered half-brother, a man of startling ambitions, Bloom must come down and meet the world.
A triumph of imagination, Mount Terminus by David Grand is a dark, majestic novel about art, family, overwhelming love, and the birth of Los Angeles: "a spellbinding, atmospheric epic from a writer at the top of his game" (Wesley Stace).
