House of Bad Memories is Funny Games meets This Is England with a Rosemary’s Baby under-taste.


“House of Bad Memories is a haunting and equally visceral tone poem of cruelty, betrayal, and vengeance. Michael David Wilson’s writing vibrates with the all-consuming trauma and suffering of humanity. This is a novel that I certainly won’t forget.”Eric LaRocca, author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke


"All the many ties that bind a chaotic and increasingly dysfunctional extended family together are stretched to breaking point and beyond in House of Bad Memories. The book goes in every direction except the one you expect. It’s a wild, bloody, and expletive filled riot that’s never anything less than intense. With genre shifts worthy of a Ben Wheatley movie, it’s highly recommended.”David Moody, author of the Autumn books and Hater


"House of Bad Memories hits so hard, you'll spit teeth out once you're done reading it."Clay McLeod Chapman, author of Ghost Eaters


"An established master of human frailty and misdirection, Michael David Wilson's latest offering, House of Bad Memories, kept me off kilter and turning pages as reality tilted. Compelling and deeply unsettling, House offers a mystery with endless layers. Never doubt Wilson's willingness to skillfully cross lines you never knew were there. Excellent."Laurel Hightower, author of Crossroads and Below


“If Ira Levin and Guy Ritchie had a drug-fuelled weekend binge with the Kray twins in a Kidderminster council flat, they wouldn't come close to House of Bad Memories. Darkly funny, brutally violent and strangely touching, Michael David Wilson has created something truly bonkers and I'm here for it.”Alan Baxter, author of The Gulp and Sallow Bend


“With razor-sharp dialogue and some of the most unpredictable, WTF moments you’ll find anywhere in dark fiction, House of Bad Memories is what would have happened if Quentin Tarantino had grown up in the rancid underbelly of the English Midlands.”Kev Harrison, author of Below and The Balance


“Beginning as a grim drama, Michael David Wilson’s House of Bad Memories quickly spins into overdrive with a highly dysfunctional family headed for destruction. Twists and turns abound with fiery dialogue that sizzles on the page, Wilson cranks up the crazy to eleven with devious characters you’ll never get out of your head.”Bob Pastorella, author of Mojo Rising


“Packing the pitch-black humour of John Niven and the gut-punching bleakness of Dead Man's Shoes, House of Bad Memories announces Wilson as a British Palahniuk—it will leave you chuckling as you count your bruises.”Dan Howarth, author of Territory
