Several weeks in the year, decorations overrun the lawns and façades of American housing tracks, transforming the ever harmonious communities into life-size movie sets. October sees spider webs spread over neatly trimmed bushes, gravestones pop up in the front yards, ghosts float under the porches at repeated intervals and carved pumpkins sit on each side of the front steps. What people are so attached at keeping mundanely uniform year long, is in these delimited periods of time allowed a collective and controlled eccentricity. This one night of the year takes over the visual landscape and the aisles of the supermarkets for over a month. What appears during this period is the setting, attributes of adult life which constitute the borders in which the action unfolds. There are no kids or candy in this book.
