Years ago, when House of Leaves was first being passed around, it was nothing more than a badly bundled heap of paper, parts of which would occasionally surface on the Internet. No one could have anticipated the small but devoted following this terrifying story would soon command. Starting with an odd assortment of marginalized youth -- musicians, tattoo artists, programmers, strippers, environmentalists, and adrenaline junkies -- the book eventually made its way into the hands of older generations, who not only found themselves in those strangely arranged pages but also discovered a way back into the lives of their estranged children. Now, for the first time, this astonishing novel is made available in book form, complete with the original colored words, vertical footnotes, and newly added second and third appendices. The story remains unchanged, focusing on a young family that moves into a small home on Ash Tree Lane where they discover something is terribly wrong: their house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Of course, neither Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Will Navidson nor his companion Karen Green was prepared to face the consequences of that impossibility, until the day their two little children wandered off and their voices eerily began to return another story -- of creature darkness, of an ever-growing abyss behind a closet door, and of that unholy growl which soon enough would tear through their walls and consume all their dreams.

Mark Z. Danielewski's debut 2000 novel House of Leaves is written in part as an essay titled The Navidson Record by Zampanò̀. Within this essay, Zampanò̀ includes footnotes and citations to many works both real and fictional. Through investigating some of his footnotes and allusions in The Navidson Record, certain connections to the postmodern movement may be drawn. By interpreting Zampanò̀'s allusions to Freud, Derrida, and Einstein, elements from Fredric Jameson's Postmodernism: Or, the Cultural Logic of Late-Capitalism change the reception of Danielewski's novel. Thorough investigation of a few allusions within the novel House of Leaves reveal many foundations for the dual-narratives of Zampanò̀ and Johnny Truant; deconstructing these allusions may prove that without these allusions and the large group of texts they inform, there may be nothing left to the novel itself, as if the novel itself is completely deconstructed. Danielewski reacts to authors like Jameson and Lyotard in his novel House of Leaves, and instead of embracing postmodernism, he abandons it.
