Imagine living in the 1920s—and yet Prohibition, class struggles and equality issues are the least of your worries. That’s the world Alaya Johnson (pictured) brings to life in her debut novel, MOONSHINE, coming May 11 from St. Martin’s Griffin.
U.S. filmgoers know all about the MPAA, and if you’re a scholar of American horror, you understand the long, tortured history of the battles between the ratings board and that most explicit and provocative of genres.
