A hospital security guard with a morbidly unique taste in women. A maternity doctor with an aberrant appetite and a penchant for popping pain pills. When the two meet, they embark on a dark, horrific journey of self-discovery and transcendence. Lines are crossed, taboos are shattered, and good taste takes a permanent leave of absence.
Hailed as “nightmarish and unforgettable” by Donald Ray Pollock (author of The Devil All the Time), “a slap-in-the-face dose of outright subversion” by Edward Lee (author of The Bighead), and “unusual and entertaining” by actress Judith O’Dea (Night of the Living Dead), Dead Inside was originally published to both controversy and acclaim in 2015. It has now been released in an “Unrated” edition, in which the text has been updated to include material deemed too unsettling for publication. Readers will also find an excerpt from Morrison’s sophomore novel, Hate to Feel.
