Always feed a wolf his fill the old woman uotes out loud lest you wake with your throat in his jaws Until very recently I always thought that lycanthropy was a made up condition Human beings don t really turn into human wolf hybrids under a full moon ripping through their clothes and feasting on hapless prey But I just finished Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones a few days ago a buddy read with my pal Mindi and now I m pretty sure Dr Jones is an actual werewolf and he wrote this fictional handbook of sorts so that horror fans could be believersraising my hand I m a believerThis book has hundreds of reviews so I m not feeling like I m going to add anything new to the fray but I want to impress upon anyone who maybe hasn t read this book I m the last one to finish aren t I that this is hands down the best novel about werewolves on the marketJones has built so much realism into lycanthropy lore that Mongrels could be the gold standard on which all others could be comparedAnd just to make the package even delicious there s a sweet coming of age tale in these pages told in a fashion that I have already come to love about SGJ If you ve read his novella MAPPING THE INTERIOR you ll know what I mean If you haven t I ll say that the 10 year old protagonist in MONGRELS reads like the true to life narrative of a real child finding his identity in this world and in the context of his family a den of werewolves My favorite aspect of this story was the thread of changetransformation woven through all the lessons and vignettesWill he or won t he Is he or isn t he These are the uestions between the lines and it was a fantastic way for SGJ to keep his reader invested until the final pages The ending was exactly what I wanted As the story wound down to its conclusion it was infused with emotion and a lingering sense of longing for the story to continue I could have read about this family for a long time This stems from everything that SGJ is busy doing in the subtext because even though this book has its lighter moments and some laugh out loud surprises the weight of the underlying themes were ever present and tugging at my heart stringsBoys want to belong They want to have a tribe They want to feel important loved for who they are and they want to have a place in this world To be noticed and not for being different in a negative way they want to be different in a way that people celebrateThis book made my heart explode honestlyI ll never see werewolves the same againOr French Fries and Pantyhose
