Written by Mariam Petrosyan, The Gray House was originally published in Russian with the title Дом, в котором... (The House in Which...) in 2009. It was translated to English by Yuri Machkasov and released in April 2017. Readers struggle to settle on a genre to best define The House, as it defies reduction, simplification and summary. Slice of Life? Fantasy? Magical Realism? Whatever your interpretation may be, if the House has left its mark on you, welcome home.
Set in a boarding school for students with disabilities, The Gray House follows the story of all its students, past and present, their counselors, and even the past and future of the House itself.
