Ich Bin Nicht Sam (I’m Not Sam) (Germany)
German edition of I’m Not Sam translated by Thomas Schichtel.
Movie tie-in edition.
Suburbia. Shady, tree-lined streets, well-tended lawns and cozy homes. A nice, quiet place to grow up. Unless you are teenage Meg or her crippled sister, Susan. On a dead-end street, in the dark, damp basement of the Chandler house, Meg and Susan are left captive to the savage whims and rages or a distant aunt who is rapidly descending into madness. It is a madness that infects all three of her sons – and finally the entire neighborhood. Only one troubled boy stands hesitantly between Meg and Susan and their cruel, torturous deaths. A boy with a very adult decision to make.
This edition also features the stories Do You Love Your Wife? and Returns. The Movie Tie-In Edition also contains a bonus interview.
- The Girl Next Door
- Do You Love Your Wife?
- We Have Permission (interview with Jack Ketchum by Quentin Dunne) – Movie Tie-In Edition only.
Lee is a veteran who came back from the war a changed man. He’s haunted and scarred. And his grip on reality is weakening, especially since his wife and son left him. He keeps to himself, deep in the woods. But today, he’s not alone. A group of weekend campers have intruded on his fragile world. For Lee this means he’s back in the war. For the unsuspecting visitors it means a fight to stay alive.
