Peter Straub is an award-winning writer of horror fiction. His new book, Interior Darkness, is a story collection drawn from his 45-year career. One of Straub's six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Drowning Girl by Caitlín R. Kiernan

A schizophrenic girl becomes fascinated by a painting in a museum. A few years later, she meets a homeless young woman and invites her to share her apartment. After that, most of this beautiful novel is up for grabs, including whether or not this new roommate is "the drowning girl" in the painting.
