Book Trailer Thursday: The Book of Speculation

When I found this trailer for Erika Swyler’s The Book of Speculation (St. Martins), “mesmerizing” was the first word that came to mind. I like trailers that speak a language totally different from the book’s, as this one does. And the fact that I can’t figure out how this one was made, though I can guess the process was time-consuming, is an added bonus. The last line of Mark Knoblauch’s Booklist review shines a little light on where the trailer’s style may have originated: “Illustrations by the author add even more atmosphere to her prose.”
