I love Poe and her album Haunted. Please tell me you have read House of Leaves, her brother's novel. (some of which you would already be familiar

i have not read House of Leaves, though i am familiar with it from her references to it on Haunted, and her liner notes. i believe the crazy poem read
during the "Hey Pretty" remix at the end of the album is by her brother. i think he even reads it on the recording.
i never read the book, as the album is so rather heavy (despite being f@cking awesome), but i suppose i should check it out. thanks for the impetus!
i didn't realize it was a novel. i think i always assumed it was a collection of poems.
PS Rolling Stone gave the album 2 stars back in the day, which bothers me to this day, as i think it is one of the better concept albums ever created.
PPS i have a drumstick of POE's that an ex-girlfriend caught at a concert in Phoenix... which i then abruptly stole from her!
