Mel Evans explores the media network surrounding House of Leaves, focusing in particular on the intersection between Danielewski’s novel and his sister Poe’s musical album Haunted, also released in 2000. Evans proposes that the album is another potential entry-point into the multilayered narrative of House of Leaves. Her fresh and original perspective illuminates both novel and album through a reading of their intertextual relationships. She concludes that the ‘effect of the intertext to foreground previously marginalised or unnoticed themes, events, or objects within the novel cannot be underestimated.’
