Yes, 'longue,' not 'lounge.' This frightening little 1953 novella is most often found in collections of classic horror/ghost stories, but sometime, somewhere I got my paws on a stand-alone edition. You'll read it in one quick sitting, but its effects will stay with you for awhile. Manchester Guardian review sums it up nicely: "...this strange, short novel shows with quiet but almost ferocious power the minutely observed distortions of nightmare."

My copy is a well-worn 1960 Ballantine Books PB with 1960s cover art that looks like something Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce would design.

To whoever find the book:
